Visit Melbourne, the HQ of culture


Melbourne...more culture than a petrie dish
Beetling through the myriad of Melbourne laneways, on route to a gallery was a refreshing tonic, sans gin. Every little boutique on Flinders lane sang their siren song and it was impossible not to be washed up against their perfectly coiffured windows. The petite Pollon, beautifully framed within an arch of St Pauls Cathedral was impossible to ignore, so I didn't. 

The stunning view of Flinders Street station was taken from the windows of the Stephen McLaughlan Gallery, which is located on the 8th floor of the blousy but still beautiful Nicholas Building within the Cathedral Arcade. The building is brimming with artist studios and designers and is worth a visit just to wander through the buttery tiled corridors and ride in the attendant operated lattice clad lift -  reminiscent of Miss Phryne Fisher murder mysteries circa 1928!

Next time you visit the beautiful souths HQ (Melbourne) be sure to visit Pollon, Stephen McLaughlan and the fabulous boutiques in the Cathedral Arcade

  1. Hire a container (small or big) depending upon the distance and the stuffs you have to move in. Avoid making heavy boxes. Multiple boxes are better than one heavy box. If you post more than please inform me by clicking this link Storage Melbourne.
