Happy Christmas from Queen Victoria Market

After the high temperatures yesterday, today started cool, but being British we still put on our shorts.

We were glad of them later in the day when it was brilliant sunshine.

We started the day with a great foodie walking tour of Queen Victoria Market. This market is the largest open air market in the Southern Hemisphere. Our guide, Tamara, took us to some interesting stalls, which we'd probably have missed if we'd gone there without her, and we had some lovely samples including donuts, cheese, tea, gelato, dried meat and coffee. That was our lunch for the day. An interesting tour.

We then walked over to the Southbank, and down to the Shrine of Remembrance, climbing up the top to see the good views of the city. That was followed by a lovely walk through the Botanical gardens. Very pretty especially the variety of cacti.

To rest our feet, we took the free circular tour tram - number 35 - around the city. Although very busy, we got to see a few more sites of the city.
