I headed down to Melbourne recently to attend the Australia v NZ Olympic Qualifier Basketball Match at Rod Laver Arena. As I hadn’t visited Melbourne on a personal trip before I was looking forward to photographing a few new locations.

A trip to Melbourne needs to include a few key locations including St Kilda Pier, Flinders Street, Princes Pier and Brighton Beach Huts.

A visit to Melbourne would not be complete without walking through the numerous lanes and seeing the street art.

I am not sure who the artists were for the above images but they are definitely talented.
