The last day we checked out of the hotel and with luggage safely stashed in the complimentary secure storage (thanks Swanston Hotel) we mooched back to Degraves St for some breakfast.
We pulled in at a really cool little oak-panelled cafe and had a gorgeous cooked breakfast and coffee’s, even though it was disgustingly expensive. But hey, its a holiday, and you have to do these things.
With full bellies, we walked off over St Kilda Rd bridge to the Botanical Gardens. They’re lovely, well maintained and almost deserted. A lovely mooch though the grounds later, we headed to the cafe for some much needed refreshment before heading back to the hotel for our bags and a cab back to the airport.
The airport managed to supply a rather nommy vegan lunch and we were on our way home. Getting back to 42 degrees was a bit much as it had barely topped 20 in Melbourne the whole time were there. Thats Perth for you :))
Had a lovely time, so much more to see for another time, which is exactly how you want to leave a place.
See you again soon, Melbourne.
