New Years Resolutions

As 2007 is about to end, many people are compiling a list of New Years resolutions. One of my resolutions is to see more of Melbourne and to set a minimum goal of 5 things to see in 2008. This year I managed to cross off five things including seeing a film at the Moonlight Cinema, walking on the MCG, watching my first (and last) cricket match at the MCG, visiting the top of the Eureka Tower, and eating a Bogan Burger. Here’s my list of 8 things to see/do in 2008, to which I will strive to see at least 5:

1. See beer being created at the Carlton United Breweries.
Birthplace of my friend VB.

2. Have a drink at The Rooftop Bar / Cinema.

3. Stroll through the Immigration Museum.
We are a country almost entirely made up of fairly new immigrants.

4. Grab some food at Movida.
Supposedly some of the best food in the city.

5. Try the $15 Wagyu Beef Burger from Rockpool.

6. Sit in the Old Melbourne Gaol.

7. Observe art in the NGV.

8. Go on some rides at Luna Park.

Happy New Year.

    Great post! I’m going to study in Melbourne in the Fall and looking for some different things to check out. I’ll be sure to add these to my list.
