-snip- Far and away one of the best bars has to be the Opera Bar. You are right there outside the Opera House sipping cocktails or beers while a fine band plays.

I also love the Bondi Icebergs. This is the place to get hammered while the sun goes down over Bondi Beach. Nothing better. Only don't tell me I've got to take a swim in the Icebergs pool in winter. Not even I can hack that (lol).

Cheers,

Ronnie

I was in Melbourne for the month of February and had a fantastic time, relaxing but also seeing some of the sights. Make sure you drive down Great Ocean Road it is spectacular and worth the visit. As I intend to eventually emmigrate to Oz I didn't over do it, actually I'm going back for a month on Boxing day (my brother stays there). Phillip Island is also a nice day, my only advice is make sure you hire a car for some of your stay as I think you will need it. Have a fab time.
