A few weeks ago I went on a road trip with my lovely sister in law. We were both very excited to see the Alexander Macqueen exhibition at the NGV in Melbourne. We also caught up with my son who lives there as well. For me to take a long road trip 9 hrs from my home to Melbourne we needed to break it up. So we left Thursday afternoon and got home Monday afternoon.
We left on a Thursday afternoon 3 hrs to Jugiong and stayed at the St George Hotel ,in an accessible room which was good. I could wheelchair easily to dinner and the room was very comfortable. I drove at the start of our journey to Melbourne the next day and then Anne took over for the remainder of the trip.
We found easy disability parking at the NGV and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
We checked into our hotel it was one I would always stay at prior to my diagnosis and realised that there was no accessible room so that was disappointing we managed but it wasn’t great.
The exhibition was wonderful so worth seeing. He was an incredible artist.
After the Alexander Macqueen exhibition we then went to the NGVA meeting up with my son , and saw the Melbourne Now exhibition it was really good .
Dinner at a suburban winery called Jamsheed in Preston completed a wonderful day .
On Sunday we went to Queen Victoria market after breakfast. We had a lovely few hours wandering. Before heading to Albury for our last overnight.
We had an accessible room in Albury and it was great and the footpaths were nice and flat and easy for me to navigate. Dinner at a pub called Bended Elbow was really good, it was a short stroll back to the hotel .
The trip home was uneventful and we felt really happy about our trip . It was wonderful to travel to Melbourne it’s a city I love to visit , and will again.
Happy Sewing, or travelling,
So pleased you had a good time. 😘 Catch-up soon.
What a wonderful weekend! I loved the McQueen exhibition too but am still to visit Melbourne Now. And guess what – Jamsheed is my local! I visit most weeks!
We loved going there with my son he is a regular there as well.
