Check out their website for full info on how the name came to be. http://www.nakedforsatan.com.au/ It’s an awesome bar with a fabulous interior. All you want to do is sit […]

Kangaroos are adorable. Seriously adorable. I always knew they were cute but up close? Forget about it! I joined up with this tour that was going to the Moonlit Conservatory Park as well as a penguin walk. Now the Conservatory is not exactly wild animals but it is close.

I love a good aquarium! They’re always so much fun and they bring out the kid in all of us! I decided I needed a little pick-me-up yesterday and so I spent several hours in the Melbourne Aquarium with the 500 children there on school field trips. I do have the best ability to choose […]

A night market, sounds nice and calm doesn’t it? A little relaxing and just a place to chill and hang out. So so very wrong!
