Susie and Michael share their favourite things to do in Melbourne

sunny 23 °C


Michael says: "What I liked most about Melbourne was the Tutankhamun exhibition. There were lots of golden, royal and beautiful blue colours. We saw coffins, shrines, statues, jewellery and vases. The best bit was looking at the golden coffin of Tutankhamun that you see on the posters."

Susie says: "And what I liked best about Melbourne was the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) at Federation Square. The Walt Disney exhibition 'Dreams Come True' showed you how they made animated movies the old fashioned way. We made our own 'cels' by painting a character on a thin layer of plastic and then colouring in a background. Last of all, we put the two together. I had great interest in the Melbourne trams too. You could press a button when the tram stopped at some traffic lights and open the door. The tram we caught most was the 109."
