The start of our amazing holiday, where we visited ...Australia, New Zealand and KL !

On Friday 13th ( ! ) December .... Tony and l flew to Australia to spend a few days in Melbourne and then fly on to Sydney. Why? There to meet up with our daughter Jenny, spend roughly 3 weeks with our son Andrew and his wife Gemma, who now live in Sydney. This was the first leg of our amazing holiday.
So first it is Melbourne. 
To start with l thought l would show you some of the amazing Street Art there is to be seen, all over the city. But ... there is one amazing street called Hosier Lane, that is plastered in Street Art, as Wikipedia will tell you!

Hosier Lane is a bluestone cobbled vehicular and pedestrian laneway on the southern edge of the central city grid of MelbourneAustralia. Hosier lane is a much celebrated landmark in Melbourne mainly due to its sophisticated urban art.[1

I hope you like colour!

The paintings cover all the levels of the car park.

In real life, this tree painting is awsome!

This was a Japanese dance group praticing, l think.

I love the fact they have even painted the dustbins. And if you look at the back of this image, you will see the door has been opened, in the painting, leading into the kitchen!

I wonder what Tony was thinking? Actually l would rather not, it was more than likely rude!

We even had music to go with the Art ... how civilised was that!

Pity he wasn't singing beside these two artists!

Cute ... some one has created a sunflower and attached it to the steel window bars.

Every nook and cranny is covered.

What a crazy street! Banksy eat your heart out!
