What am I talking about you might ask? How can that enormous Greek building dominating St Kilda Rd be a hidden gem? However, I am, of course talking about the wonderful museum hidden away beneath - it is well worth a visit.

This is close to town and well worth a visit. Great views from the outside. But it’s the interior that I thought was really cool. And very moving as well.

Apart from a great view it is an interesting historical visit. It is worth the climb up the steps. Make sure you have your camera.

Had a lovely visit to the shrine. Beautifully displayed museum underneath and very interesting. The gardens around are extremely well cared for. Really enjoyed spending time there. Not a place for small children. Prams ok etc.
