WELCOME TO MY MELBOURNE FRESH DAILY PHOTO BLOG!

This is a blog where each day, I post a photograph from my home city, Melbourne, Victoria Australia. Australia is a big country, it is a continent after all! Here is an interesting map comparing the areas of Europe and Australia.

In the map below, state capitals are designated by the red dots, while other cities by the black dots. Our capital city Canberra is obscured by the European map, but lies inland, midway between Sydney and Melbourne.

As of June 2009, the greater geographical area had a population of 4,077,036 with its residents called Melburnians.

  1. G'Day NixBlog. Thanks for your comment on my blog. Good to see another Aussie blogger in the blogosphere. It certainly puts things in perspective when you see the maps of Europe and Australia displayed this way.
