Before this, animals were housed at the botanical gardens in Melbourne. Initially the zoo was important for the acclimatisation of domestic animals recovering from their long trip to Australia. It was only with the appointment of Albert Alexander Cochrane Le Souef in that more exotic animals were procured for public display, and the gardens and picnic areas were developed. These evenings allow the public to see some of the nocturnal animals at the zoo in evening guided tours by keepers. One of the most famous exhibits was Queenie the elephant. The zoo is set among flower gardens and picnic areas. Many of the animals are now organised in bioclimatic zones: African rainforest featuring gorillas, mandrills, pigmy hippos and parrots; Asian Rainforest with tigers and otters; and the Australian bush with koala, kangaroos, emu, echidnas and endangered hairy nose wombats. Popular exhibits also include the Butterfly House, the great flight aviary and the Trail of the Elephants.

About what to do with them lol,’ he wrote next to it. On December 30 he urged his friends to consider that when a police officer was killed on duty, maybe the ‘cop killer was the good guy’. And that I’ve experienced days and nights I thought I’d never experience in my life since I got to Melbourne.

Gavin Wilson, 76, said Gargasoulas came into his apartment, in the same housing commission block as the young man shared with his mother, brandishing a bible. Gargasoulas then sat down and lit the bible on fire before throwing it into Mr Wilson’s face, before attacking him. The rampage finally came to an end when he mounted the kerb at Bourke Street and came to a stop after police shot him the arm Police arrested a man wearing nothing but red underwear following the incident in Melbourne Before Gargasoulas attacked his brother, witnesses claim the year-old ‘appeared to be on drugs’ and was told to leave Acland street McDonald’s at about 10pm, according to The Herald Sun.

History[ edit ] “Canvas Town”, South Melbourne in the s. Temporary accommodation for the thousands who poured into Melbourne each week during the gold rush St Vincent Gardens in Rochester Terrace is in the background Before European settlement, the area now called South Melbourne featured a single hill where the Town Hall now stands surrounded by swamps.
The Hill was a traditional social and ceremonial meeting place for Aboriginal tribes.

The driver of the car, identified as Dimitrious ‘Jimmy’ Gargasoulas, is a Melbourne local who was charged with family violence offences last weekend and was out on bail when he ploughed through crowds in the city centre on Friday. After attacking his brother, Gargasoulas is accused of storming into his mother’s ex-boyfriend, Gavin Wilson’s, housing commission apartment and demanding the keys to his Holden Commodore.
The year-old said Gargasoulas came into his flat with a Bible, set it alight and threw the burning book into his face before threatening to gouge his eye out. Mr Wilson said he handed over his keys out of fear for his life The red car that smashed through pedestrians is pictured crumpled on the path after police brought it to a stop The mangled wreckage of half a pram was found pictured metres up the street and a mother was heard shouting ‘where is my baby?
Among the four people killed were a man in his 30s, a woman in her 30s, and a young child. Officers had earlier in the day tried to intercept the vehicle, but called off the chase before he entered the downtown area because he was driving so erratically and they feared a chase through the city might endanger the community. Gargasoulas is now in hospital after being shot in the arm by police, who dragged him from the vehicle.
Shocking mobile phone footage captured the moment the maroon vehicle performed burnouts outside Flinders Street Station before driving into crowds of shoppers on busy Bourke Street at about 1.
You can’t go too wrong with any of the restaurants along the Yarra, any of the restaurants along the Crown Casino promenade would be a great start. Think Bistro Guillaume where I was taken out for a first date before I even moved to Melbourne for romantic French food, or any of the restaurants along Lygon Street. A restaurant where I went with a close friend of mine in December, called Copperwood Bar and Restaurant , that I would also recommend as a great restaurant to take your date to, especially due to the great ambience at this establishment.
It is great to also include the dinner with some simple activity afterwards, such as a walk and an ice cream along the Yarra, or if you are hanging out at Lygon Street, then head to Casa Del Gelato for an after dinner ice cream and enjoy it at the little park nearby. If you are taking your date out for lunch, then why not spend the afternoon together lying in the grass and walking around the Royal Botanical Gardens.

Some of Melbourne’s most hardened criminals were sent to this foreboding blue stone building as punishment for their crimes. The prison was built in and prisoners were used to break up bluestone from nearby quarries. Many of those bluestones were used to pave Coburg’s and Melbourne’s laneways. But the crims and crooks are gone and Pentridge is now a law abiding residential development.
Sydney Rd is the main thoroughfare in Coburg and it gets packed. Traffic jams, slow moving trams, ay yay yay! Do not venture down here if you are in a rush or you may suffer road rage. On the plus side, Sydney Rd has an amazing collection of shops and cafes with interesting stuff that’s cheap. But parking here can be challenging. You have been warned.
