One of the wonderful views across Melbourne is that from the Eureka Tower. Unique in its own right, this wonderful skyscraper is complete with observation deck and a little bit that even goes out on a limb. Or a very sturdy contraption at least! Some people are too scared to go in there… I cannot remember if what you are looking at here turns out to be The Edge clickable to Wikipedia but certainly the actual gold plated fea\tures of this building are stunning. Ok, over the top if you think about the poorer people that exist below, but stunning.

If you were up there the same day and found my sunglasses though, could I please have them back?! :-P Thanks :-P

  • Thanks Vicki! :-D My overwhelming memory had been of losing my sunglasses and my stress for the rest of the day looking to replace them with glasses dark enough… so finding these photos has made me smile :-) Glad you like it! :-D

    Very wonderful reflection and capture!

  • Thanks! I may go up again in February. Last time I was quite stressed and I think that showed in some of the photos. See how it goes, there is another tower in Melbourne that I may try instead. I shall be staying in an apartment rather than a backpackers hostel so should be a lot more chilled so I am willing to go with the flow a little more. :-)
