After, exploring 15 cities in the continent of Australia, I decided to make this video to summarize my journey. Highlights including scuba diving, hugging a koala bear, trekking through a glowworm cave, and playing at the Australian Open venue.

 

Huge thanks to Yale, Catherine, Jessica and Yuwei for accompanying me in this trip!

October 2, 2014

On this day, I visited the most important venue in Melbourne – the Melbourne Park, home to the Australian Open of tennis. 

 

As a tennis fan, I was excited to visit the site of this prestigious tournament. Melbourne Park consists of a large area that includes venues such as the Rod Laver Arena, the Hisense Arena and the Margaret Court Arena.

 

 This is the open area at the park.

I signed up for the tour to check out the venue insid...

Day 17

 

In the morning, I left the city early for a tour to visit the famous Great Ocean Road, along with other landmarks, most notably the Twelve Apostles. Great Ocean Road is a must-see sight if you plan to visit Melbourne. The road is 240km long and stretches from Port Phillip bay to Warrnambool. 

 

The view on the Great Ocean Road is certainly spectacular, however, after 3 hours of twists and turns on this curvy road, I began...

Day 16

 

Early morning, I took a 7:45am flight to Melbourne (bye bye Sydney). After arriving at Melbourne, I signed up for another “I am Free” walking tour. 

On this tour, I was able to learn the history and cultural development of Melbourne. As mentioned from before, Melbourne did not grow big until the gold rush in the 1850s. Ever since then, Australians begin to compare between Melbourne and Sydney. In fact, Melbourne was ahea...

Day 15

 

In the morning, I met up with my friend Yuwei who lived in Sydney temporarily at the Darling Harbour to check out the Malaysian Food Festival. 

 

 To be honest, I was surprised that there were only a maximum of 10 food stalls at the park. The other stalls were mostly on merchandise sale. 

 

 Afterwards, we took the bus to Maroubra beach, which is about 10 km south-east of the CBD. On that day, we walked from Maroubra beach...

Day 13

 

The next day I went to the CBD again and visited the Darling Harbour. According to the tour guide, Darling Harbour was not as nice as before, and recently went through a massive urban renewal development. Now, the harbor is a large recreational and pedestrian precinct. When I visited Sydney, it was during the school holiday. Therefore, I saw many children and families gathered around the Darling Harbour park as their pl...

Day 12

 

This is going to be a long post.

 

After a change of pace and atmosphere, I arrived to the city side of Australia – Sydney. Sydney is a metropolis city, quite similar to Toronto. The city is very multicultural and is indeed a financial hub on the Oceanic continent. Sydney is also the state capital of New South Wales and has the highest population in Australia.

 

I stayed at a family friend’s house in Sydney for the next fou...

Day 10

 

We took an 11 am flight to leave from Cairns to Gold Coast. Off the airport, we rented a car from Europcar and drove to our hostel. On the streets of Gold Coast, I noticed something very different. Remember how I mentioned that Australia likes to name their words differently? Well, in Australia “Burger King” is called “Hungry Jack’s”. What happened was that the name “Burger King” has already been trademarked by a food s...
