The Melbourne Aquarium

I took my first trip into “the city”.

Theo and I took a 20-minute train ride to Flinders Street and I was surprised to see just how busy the area is. We walked a few blocks, stopping in a Turkish cafe for kebab and a delicious chai latte, and made our way to the Melbourne Aquarium located on the banks of the Yarra River.

The Melbourne Aquarium has four levels and includes Australia’s only collection of sub-Antarctic penguins, which are so cute. I also really liked the Oceanarium.

The Oceanarium walk-thorough tank is really cool.
