HOT Alert: Week of 5 October

This week’s it’s all about Fringe, Fringe, Fringe:

Then we turn from Fringe to food, refugees and beginning of the other festival, the Melbourne International Arts Festival:

This week’s photo is from my archives of favourite Melbourne shots. A few years ago a flock of hot pink birds landed on Collins Street – perched against the backdrop of the Manchester Unity building, they were quite a sight.

  1. I loved these birds! I was hiking up Swanston St one very cold winders day and was perplexed by the fluro inhabitants in the Plane trees! I had to take a pic and MMS to Ornithophobic friend and share the good news.

    • Hi Nicole

      Did you ever see the blue trees at the Sofitel Hotel and the red trees in the Botanical Gardens as well? In winter our city could really do with some more flourescent colour!

      Read your review on the Mess Hall – it is one of my favourite lunchtime spots too. Have you had the aracini balls there? Amazing.
