Blow Your Cares Away
By Sally Hobson

Lucky enough to have a weekend in Melbourne, we decided to do something different and head down to the Docklands to enjoy a sail on gorgeous Port Phillip Bay. Once aboard we were given a quick safety lesson and shown where to stow our valuables – important, as if anything goes overboard – that’s where it stays, except people, of course! We motored up the Yarra River to Port Phillip Bay, passing the navy port and multi-million dollar homes of Williamstown, and watched the spectacle of the loading and unloading of the cargo ships in the docks. The crew are happy to adapt the day to the wishes of those on board, so if you prefer a sedate motor while you sip a glass of champagne and enjoy the scenery and passing parade of vessels, no problem.  However, if you love to ...

Review - Collins Mark
By Craig Davis

Magic Melbourne Collins Mark Apartments, 325 Collins Street, Melbourne, Victoria Overview Collins Mark Apartments are well located in a wonderful lively area of central Melbourne. The apartments are modern, stylish and fully self-contained, great for an extended business trip or intercity getaway. I really felt immersed in the lively Melbourne atmosphere but at the same time able to retreat to my quiet and stylish rooms. The 1 bedroom unit had plenty of space for me to hold an informal meeting with some colleagues before dinner. I only stayed for 2 nights but a much longer stay would have been very comfortable. Overall rating: Good to excellent with an outstanding location. What makes Collins Mark different? Self-contained short stay facilities located so close to lively Melbourne fa... Read more
