  • Do you prefer modern architecture or historical one? 🏠
We stumbled on this beautiful Victorian building in St.Kilda neighbourhood, Melbourne while just walking around lesser-known streets. It was not the single most beautiful building there as #stkilda is filled with similar ones everywhere you look. Why are there so many terraced houses and where did they come from? A little bit of a history lesson is in order! ✌🏼 Terraced housing was introduced to Australia in the 19th century, their architectural work based on those in London and Paris, which had the style a century earlier. Rows of terraced houses became common in the inner suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne, mostly built between 1855 and 1890. The populat­ion boom caused by the Victorian and New South Wales gold rushes of the 1850s and only finished with an economic depression in the early 1890s. 
The Melbourne style incorporated beautiful decorative cast iron balconies. It turns out that Melbourne has more decorative cast iron than any other city in the world - one more reason to visit the town and wander through every small street possible! 👌🏼 Which are THE suburbs for best Terrace house spotting? It is safe to say that these will bring you plenty of eye candy: Albert Park, Fitzroy, Carlton, Parkville, and East Melbourne.

How to be sure that you are looking at the right house? There are en clues to help you identify a Victorian house:
1. Patterned bricks 
2. Terraces
3. Barge boards
4. Decorated roof line and slates
5. Bay and sash windows
6. Floor tiles
7. Stained glass
8. Fireplace in every room
9. Porches
10. Date stones

Good luck with your architecture discoveries! 🏠✌🏼

  • Looking for your next spot to kayak? 🚣‍♀️ @theoldhospital spent the day paddling along the tranquil waters of the Tarwin River, South Gippsland! A river that was once the life blood of Tarwin Lower is now a popular spot for a kayak, a place to leisurely stroll along the boardwalks, go for a fish or gather some friends and enjoy a picnic along the banks of the river! #visitgippsland #seeaustralia #yourhappyspace #visitvictoria #visitpromcountry

  • As perfectly put by our Aquarist @jmar197: We are used to handprints on the acrylic, not FOOTPRINTS 👣🤭😂 Captured clinging to display acrylic, this is the foot of a Carpet Anemone. They are fairly mobile and will move around to settle in an spot with ideal growing conditions.

  • This was one of only two stops we made along the Eyre Peninsula. We have decided to chase the sun up north rather than freeze our little bottoms off down south. ⁣⁣

See you in six months Eyre✌🏼 ⁣⁣
