Why We Melbourne 09Sep16

Melbourne has some amazing architecture, one of my most favourite buildings is the Princess Theatre, a 1488-seat theatre in Melbourne's East End Theatre District and is the oldest continuous entertainment site on mainland Australia. It is listed by the National Trust of Australia and is on the Victorian Heritage Register. Enjoy the photographs and remember that we live in a fantastic city.
