I know I will be found out, so I will say this post inspired by ABC Melbourne breakfast radio.
Victoria and its capital Melbourne are fantastic places to live in and to visit.
We have the big wheel, just like in London and Singapore. A giant ferris wheel where you travel in a pod and have great views over our city. Some people have even done the biz in the pods. Umm, sorry, the wheel is broken at the moment.
The Mornington Peninsular is wonderful. Calm beaches, surf beaches, wineries, fine food and at Arthur's Seat, you can travel down a mountain on a chair lift where you can see the city and its surrounds. Umm, sorry, chairlift is broken at the moment.
There is a marvellous fountain in the shape of a C near our parliamentary buildings. On a hot day, kiddies can run through it. Ummm, sorry, not enough water to run it.
Our casino has great seagull barbecuing gas flame jets that go off on the hour at night. From where the flame emits, water flows down the side. Ummm, sorry, not enough water to run them.
When you visit Melbourne, you want your kids to have fun. What better fun than water jets popping up unexpectedly from paving, also at the Casino. Kids would love that, be the weather hot or cold. Ummm, sorry, not enough water to run them.
Do check out the Nylex Clock in Richmond. It sits atop tall silos and shows the time and the temperature and is a landmark in Melbourne. Ummm, sorry, it is broke too.
With our lack of water, our crumbling infrastructure, our knocking down old and historic building willy nilly, presided over by Minister Justin Madden, to be replaced by glass and concrete, is Victoria really the place to be?
