This was a nice spot to wander around and just get the historical vibe. Was a working area so people very much going about their day jobs.

Located very near the cruise terminal and an easy walk. It is very colorful and worth a picture taking opportunity. A statue of Queen Victoria(1837-1901) along with several cannons are prominent. There were flags up celebrating independence.

A MUST SEE especially during National Holidays. It is beautifully decorated and hosts live performances. This is the place where the people gather to celebrate and protect their rights. It is also in the center of great shopping, gucci is right next door.

Yes, all the areas you might want to explore are in easy range if you're up to the task. Although if you're a slow walker or have issues with hills/distance you might want to grab a cab.
