No fancy buffet lunch this year but I was blessed with a good weather to carry out all the plans for the day.
Starting with a wonderful breakfast at The Hardware Société. The breakfast was so good that I will be doing a separate post on it.
The famous baked egg. Must try!
Address: 120 Hardware Street Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia
After a heavy breakfast, it was time to follow the itinerary planned. First stop, Melbourne Town Hall.
The town hall provides free tours to visitors to learn about the architectural, social and political significance of this impressive 19th century building. You will get to experience the grandeur of the wood-panelled Council Chamber, stand on the portico where the Beatles waved, sit in the Lord Mayor’s chair and view the richly carved Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ, the largest grand romantic organ in the southern hemisphere.
Photos were only allowed to be taken at some areas of the Town Hall. A photo of the Lord Mayor’s chair.
Unfortunately for us, there was an event held at the Auditorium on that day hence we were not able to see the organ up close.
Where to book: Melbourne Town Hall Tour
Next off, Bright Bathing Box. It was really easy to get there, just hop on to Train 32 from Flinders Street Railway Station and alight at Brighton Beach Railway Station. Veolia!
No worries of getting lost. There were many of these signage along the route.
Beautiful Melbourne skyline
Finally catching a glimpse of the bathing boxes
Get ready for photos flood…
If you ask me if I have a favourite, my answer is No. All the boxes have their own character and I like them all.

Next on the plan, St Kilda Pier. This would be our last stop and we had plenty of time. Hence, we decided to walk there. It took us around 2 hours to cover the ~7.5km. We did stop along the way to take photos and take mini break.
And we finally reached!
St Klida Pier
You must be thinking what is so special about St Kilda Pier that we walked 2 hours here. There’s the reason why…
