  1. Great post! After reading your post & watching all the videos, I’d most like to visit the Dandenong Ranges for it’s scenic beauty, breathtaking view and cool breeze blowing through my hair. πŸ˜› I’d give anything away for driving through the winding roads which are present throughout the ranges. I’d love to stay at one of the bed and breakfast cottages and go on frequent excursions in the forests with my camera which provides excellent views. And not to forget the famous ride in the Puffing Billy, a day reserved especially for that. To add to that, there are also several picnic spots for me and my friends to spend a fun-filled day and the ranges are a perfect spot for hiking and cycling.

    Wish you and your blog a happy new year! πŸ˜€

  2. We know beauty never need words but without words it cannot be explained and when you get wordless after seeing it… your mouth still get open wide and WOW comes out. Dear! Your explanation about Melbourne is wonderful and picturesque description. I am a person who always attracted to nature first of any place so I would love to see the Melbourne Nature & Wildlife. The 12 Apostles rock formations is world famous rocks which changes its color in sunrise and sun set. And then I will see the Phillip Island Nature Park where I want to see the animals which I hardly see in India. I never saw Penguins, Koala and other animals.
    Driving on a smooth road with natural beauty around you, it always gives you a feeling of heaven on Earth. I would love to drive on Great Ocean Road which is also famous in world to give you a scenic experience and the pleasure of that driving is amazing.

  3. Hey! your post made me relive the awesome time I recently had in Melbourne. Though I truly fell in love with this beautiful city, if I have to choose a place to go back to, or your could say, what I miss most about Melbourne – it would have to be Philip Island. It started with a rather logn wait in the chilly wind on the beach, but all that shivering under layers of warm clothing actually paid off manifold when we heard the first clack-clacks of the little penguins (yes, you can actually hear them before you can see them). And after a few minutes, there were flocks of them coming out of the water! What a sight it was. By this time, the cold was forgotten,and we rushed to the boardwalk running along their burrow grounds, and there, you can see them at touching distance (though touching them is not allowed – they bite!). It was such a pleasure watching these tiny creatures trottign along that I wish to see this sight again and again.
    Your animation is indeed a very special touch. All the best for the contest.

  4. Hahaha πŸ™‚ Nice Animated video.

    Some of the most interesting places which I shortlisted to visit after watching Tanmay and Rohan’s videos is here. This comment space would be very less in order to keep on giving the reasons to visit these places once in life, but I am trying to be as short and crisp as possible and these are the must visit places if at all I go to Melbourne in my life.

    Yarra Valley for Great Day out and Excellent Wine Tasting tour which seems totally magical. Driving around Yarra Valley in a beautiful and breathtaking places seems like a great country getaway from Melbourne city and so much to see, visit and taste.

    Going for a Seal Watching Cruise and Observing those inquisitive & graceful creatures close up, is a trip one will not forget I guess. It seems to be a totally a worthy place for young and old too. So many seals getting close to them could be an absolutely thrilling experience.

    Another place I wouldn’t want to miss is Sunny Ridge Strawberry farm for some AMAZING Strawberry ice cream and strawberries, it seems like a strawberry heaven with delicious, succulent and mouth watering strawberries ever. I am sure this place visit would be a great experience for the kids too.

    Have you watched Penguins parade ? If not, I guess this is the place to visit which is Phillip Island Nature Park. The experience to watch these penguins is Out of this world, a must see for great experience and its awesome

    for Animal lovers too. Its like cute litte faires coming in from Ocean. I guess, this is a MUST do experience when I am in Melbourne.

    Are you a chocolate lover ? I guess Pannys Amazing World of Chocolate is a must visit place for enjoying some mouth watering chocolates. Also, just watching the huge waterfall of chocolate cascade down is breath taking. And watching the live chocolate making is fun.

    If you are a drive freak and love to drive around in some scenic spots, this is the place to visit which is “The Great Ocean Road”. Seems like it would be a Great tour, great food and fantastic view.

    Some more places which I love to visit is Montalto Vineyard & Olive Grove, Loch Ard Gorge beach, Chateau Yering BBQ for some amazing Australian BBQ and definitely a hot air balloon ride for spectacular sightseeing and experience in life.

  5. Will I want to cuddle a koala? Will I want to look into the eyes of a kangaroo? Will I want to watch the penguins parade by? Yes, all of these… and even the shopping and the crowd-watching and art-gazing that is there aplenty in Melbourne.

    So I will go for the early morning balloon ride to the Yarra valley, a segway hour or two along the Yarra riverfront, and a tram ride through the town.

    So, will I get what I want?
    1. There will be enough opportunity to click the contemporary and heritage architecture that is to be found here
    2. I’ll sit by the public art displays and sketch a few of them on my iPad
    3. I’ll watch the city from the top and get views that aren’t possible otherwise

    By the way, I loved reading your post too… and might follow a few tips given there.

  8. Being a person who loves to travel this place has struck my eye.
    And here, Eureka Skydeck 88 is going to be first on my list.. i can just imagine the view after reading about it and i feel its going to be awesome.
    Then the St. Kilda Beach,the long walk on the beach during the sunset will be just perfect.. And finding gold is also there.. πŸ˜€
