Australia Day Melbourne provokes images of awesome times around the grassed areas of the Yarra River or at great Melbourne restaurants and venues enjoying an Australia Day lunch (it might even be a BBQ lunch) and refreshing summer drink. It also provokes ideas of getting out in the Yarra Ranges, down the Mornington Peninsula or to the St Kilda Beach with friends. Some people like to stay at home around the house and invite friends around and watch the Aussie sports like cricket and tennis being played on TV.
