Australia Part 15: Melbourne Zoo and la Porchetta at Queen Victoria Market

Hubby and I finally managed to find the Melbourne Zoo. We checked out from our hotel early and proceeded directly to Melbourne Zoo.

We had breakfast amongst the Kangaroos. We still had some leftover ham, cheese, bread and fruits from the hotel fridge and I brought it with me. It was the most fun breakfast ever :-)

If you love animals, like we do, don't miss out on going to Melbourne Zoo. You will enjoy spending the whole day there, although we didn't have that luxury because we had a flight to New Castle in the afternoon. Anyway, these are just some of the animals that we saw. It was absolutely worth it to go and have a visit.

The most fun I had was going to the aviary. The aviary was huge and very ideal for avian "lifestyle". There are streams inside, grasses, trees and shrubs. The aviary alone is worth the trip.

The zoo also provides party areas that you can rent for the day. Vey ideal for Children's parties and such.

We had so little time left for lunch before our flight, we made a beeline to La Porchetta at Queen Victoria Market for a quick lunch of La Porchetta Pizza, caesar's Salad, hot chocolate and Ice cream. The pizza was way too rich, a sprinkling of bell peppers would have made it better :-)
