OzTREKK‘s Cathy McNally is currently in Melbourne to attend a conference at the University of Melbourne. Throughout her time in Melbourne, she will share her thoughts about both the city and university:
After a quick 30-hour journey, I finally made it to Melbourne. Never having been to the city, I was excited to explore it, especially as my fellow OzTREKK staff members have raved about the city
During our conference here at the University of Melbourne, we have been given Saturday (today!) to explore the city on our own. So decided to head to the famous Queen Victoria Market where you can buy fruit, leather jackets and aboriginal art. It was the optimal way to see how Melbournians spend their Saturday mornings.
I also checked out a number of the iconic buildings within the central Melbourne area, including the Parliament building and Melbourne Museum.
Tomorrow, along with my conference colleagues, will descent on the University of Melbourne campus, where we will join 40,000 prospective students to see what the university has to offer. We will get a personal tour from a University of Melbourne student, who will share their experiences with us and showcase their favourite spots on campus. I hope it includes a stop for a flat white – a common coffee drink that I can’t get enough of while here in Australia.
