Z had badgered us to visit the Sea Life Aquarium. We found the admission fees to be rather pricey but after reading the reviews on the awesome penguins’ exhibit, we took the plunge. We purchased the tickets online after the kind lady at SSMA office agreed to help us print out the tickets. There was a clause stating that we must show physical email of the tickets.
It was a short 10min walk to the Aquarium and we reached at the opening hour of 0930h.
By 1130am, we were done and walked over to Flinders street to check out our lunch options. We ended up at the Degraves street and tried ‘The Quarter on Degraves” upon seeing the crowd as well as some awards at the door. It was a great choice.
After a very satisfying lunch, we took the city tram to the Melbourne Museum. The admission fees were a lot cheaper at $12 per adult and free entry for children below 16.
So many specimens

The Melbourne Museum was one of the best museums I had ever visited. The exhibits were extensive, the information was well presented and the visual aids were superb. We also learnt a lot of facts which we had not been interested in previously ourselves too. Z had a field day and learnt about evolution. It intrigued him that a fish could grow legs to suit the environment.
We shopped for so long at DFO that the kids had a dinner of chicken katsu don at the food court. It was surprisingly good.
We were dead beat by the time we were done with shopping and walked back to the apartment.
