Our last day in Melbourne was spent doing what we do best - National Trusting. We visited Como House which was once out in the bush but now in a well to do Melbourne suburb. A pleasant end to a lovely break.
Had we stayed in Melbourne for New Year we'd be able to choose from at least three firework displays. We hoped we'd see the Wellington display as we flew across the harbour at midnight but instead it was a damp squib - new year celebrations cancelled due to the wind and rain.
Did I mention we went from 28 degrees in Melbourne to only 9 degrees in Wellington. Hmm, not such a good call to get home for the festivities!
