Melbourne, The Return
Went back to Melbourne to check out the Old Melbourne Gaol, which is where they hanged the infamous Australian outlaw, Ned Kelly. Also attended a reenactment of Ned Kelly's (unfair) trial... at which I was somehow recruited into playing one of the witnesses (Sgt. Steele). They wouldn't let me keep the hat.
More awesome Melbourne peeps. That's Helen's niece, Rebecca.
Traffic signals for Melbourne's infamous "hook turns." See the hooking right arrow? Yeah... in order to turn right, you have to get in the LEFT lane. Fun times. I did one... after I made Helen do one. She almost cried.
Swan Hill, Jindebyne, and Canberra
Pioneer museum in Swan Hill, Australia. This goat was tied up and couldn't reach the tall grass, so I fed him for a few minutes.
Near Jindebyne (awesome town)... Mt. Kosciuszko... the tallest mountain in Australia. Actually, wait... no, that's just me shaking my hair around in front of Mt. Kosciuszko.
At the Australian Museum in Australia's capital (Canberra), there was an exhibit that had all four of the Ned Kelly gang's suits of armor (which is what I was hoping to see in Melbourne). No photography allowed at the exhibit... but we got plenty.
The Plan to Re-Invade...
Am I going back? Does a kangaroo fuck in the woods? Shityeah, I'm going back... 2013... taking a month or two to drive the perimeter of the entire continent on a motorcycle. And making a quick hop to New Zealand.
My riding partner and fellow re-invasion planner.
