Various shots of the Auction Rooms Cafe in North Melbourne. (103-107 Errol Street). These shots were all taken by my daughter.
The interiors of the cafe are rustic or industrial with just a little touch of shabby chic. There are wonderful syphons for the coffee/tea as you can see in the photos.

The fantastically interesting Chapel Street Bazaar. I remember it from when it was around the corner in Greville Street. Great collectibles, nic-nacs, jewellery, antique furniture and much much more. This photo came third in the ‘What I love about Stonnington’ competition. It has been printed on postcards and distributed around the city. HDR

Adam Elliot created the character of Havey Krumpet and in 2003 won an oscar for the short movie which he directed, wrote and animated. The movie is narrated by Geoffrey Rush (Captain Barbosa from “Pirates of the Caribbean”). In fine form, Adam has left Harvie together with Oscar for all to see in the foyer of ACMI (Australian Centre for the moving image). I have shown the cafe from ACMI before here. ACMI is located at the back of Federation Square.

Adjacent to the circuit is a replica (one fifth the size of the real one) where you can race go karts. We had a ball over our twenty minutes, using one single kart and one tandem kart for two people. Full details can be found here.

Another of the many interesting laneways in the city of Melbourne. This one is AC/DC lane, which runs off Flinders Lane. At the end is “The Alley Bar” up on the left is “Fifteen“, Jamie Olivers restaurant which was recently burnt in a fire, thus the boarding on the windows. The day after the fire, Chris Cheneys band “The Living End” played here for lucky listerners of a National broadcaster, Triple J. The laneway is, of course named after legndary Australian band AC/DC.

Further along the river from Southgate is the Crown Promenade (outside the Crown Casino). Lighting the way are these lovely trees with fairy lights. It certainly makes for a very festive feel, and is very popular with tourists and weekenders.

It seems appropriate with the Beijing Olympics finishing today, that I post something from China Town here in Melbourne.

It is soon to be host to the Asian Food Festival which runs from the 1st to the 30th of September 2008. Details about China town can be found here, details on the food festival can be found here.
