11 November 2011 : Goodbye Tallangatta, Hello Melbourne

Following a fond farewell to house families, the last school bust trip and the last Home group, we loaded bags onto the bus and John and Deanne Baude drove us off down the Hume Highway to Melbourne.

After a quick check in to the Hotel Miami, it was off to the Victoria Market with what seemed to Janet to be an attempt to buy every souvenir that could be found! The number of purchases that could be made in just 1 1/2 hours was amazing! Obviously plenty of family and friends in Sabah will be showered with gifts. This necessitated a return to the Miami to off load shopping, before heading along Spencer street to catch the city circle tram for a ride around the edge of the city towards Flinders street station.

Next we headed to Southbank for a quick meal at the food court and a stroll along the river bank, then a quick walk over the foot bridge for - you guessed it - more shopping! After another 2 hours of souvenir hunting and a much needed visit to the money changer for some, it was back onto the tram to return to the Miami and off to bed after a long day.
