Melbourne Zoo ~ Casino ~ Eureka – 19 Aug 2008

~ Second Day in Melbourne ~

Melbourne Zoo ~ Crown Casino ~ Eureka Skydeck

My uncle was our tour guide today. We woke up around 8 and had our breakfast at home. We brought some sandwiches that is prepared by my aunty for our picnic lunch in the Zoo.  😛

We took a train from Oakleigh Station heading to Flinders Street & transit to Royal Park Station. Melbourne Zoo is only a few steps from the station. The moment we entered the zoo is already lunch time, thus, we had our lunch before start our zoo tour. There are quite a number of animals been showcased in the zoo. Of course including those that can only be found in Australia ~ Kangaroo, little penguin, koala bear & wombat.

After the zoo visit, we took the train back to the flinders street & proceeded to the Crown Casino. Crown Casino os one of the largest & most dazzling gaming facilities in Melbourne offering an incredible array of gaming options in a vibrant & sophisticated setting. We enjoyed our dinner in one of the restaurant available in the casino.

After leaving Crown Casino, our last destination of the day was Eureka Skydeck 88 which is the tallest point in Melbourne where we were able to enjoyed the awesome city night views from the top. You can experience the fastest lifts here where you will arrive level 88 in less than 40 seconds. Skydeck 88 is the only observation deck in he world that can thrill you wuth ‘The Edge’, which is a glass cube which projects 3 meters out of the building, 300 meters up from the ground.
