Melbourne Victory Vs Liverpool FC, Australia

One of the main reasons I was visiting Melbourne was to catch my team; Liverpool Football Club; touring Australia in their pre-season, play Melbourne Victory.  It was played in front of over 95 000 fans at a packed MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) stadium.
It wasnt the highest tempo match i've ever seen but Liverpool didn't disappoint and came away with a 2-0 win.
Stephen Gerard scored and then one of the new signings Iago Aspas rounded the night off with a goal.

Twelve Apostles, Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia

Been back in Australia a few months now and finally made time to see more of the country I currently live in. This week I had a trip down to Melbourne, after renting a car and a few hours drive down the road you will reach the Great Ocean Road, which follows the southern Victoria coastline.
A good portion of this stretch of famous coastline is national park listed and is home to the Twelve Apostles, which are stacks of eroded limestone rock separated from the mainland.
It was very impressive seeing the landscapes and scenic part of the coast.  But the stacks are subject to constant erosion and there are a few less apostles than the original twelve these days, as you can see from the stack of rubble in the picture below.
