It's White Night time in Melbourne again !

State Library
After holding the White Night event for the first time last year in 2013, White Night Melbourne is back this weekend on Saturday !!!

Last year, more than 300,000 people attended ! And I am betting this year will be even better especially with the pleasant weather predicted for this weekend.

If you don't now what White Night is, it is a special event starting at 7 pm where "Melbourne’s city streets, laneways, landmarks and cultural institutions will once again be transformed into a cultural playground from dusk-till-dawn". Originally held in St Petersburg Russia but made famous by the Nuit Blance festival in Paris, it has now spread to many cities around the world. And Melbourne is the only Australian city to host this amazing event !

But my favorite part is where they light up all the buildings in a psychedelic explosion of colour and creativity. Simply breathtaking. Here are some pictures to give you a taste but it doesn't even come close to conveying the wondrous sight and buzz of the atmosphere.

Hope you are in Melbourne to enjoy a night like no other.

Melbourne heatwave continues ...

35-36-40-24 ..  that's the peak temperature for the next 4 days !

Buchan Caves
Frankly, I have had enough of this heatwave ! I can't wait for Summer to end and the cool of Autumn to come. Melbourne fall is my favorite season by far. I love the cool crisp weather and the lovely orange-red of the leaves. 

First, I have to get past this stinking hot weather. If you hate weather like this, one place to hide from the heat  would be the beautiful Buchan caves in eastern Victoria. It is very near the lovely beach town of Lakes Entrance - one of my favorite weekend escapes.

Stay cool my friends !
