This doesn't seem to have sprung up as yet, and people do seem to be doing a few things (I have a trivia night and Pinny Pal meetup already booked...)
So I am going to attempt to Organise the incredibly awesome 2015 Magical Mystery Tour to welcome our international/interstate/interdimensional/really shy guests!
If you are traveling to Melbourne, and have not visited the WORLDS MOST LIVABLE CITY before, and want to pre-meet some amazing PAX peoples before the crowd descends, then do we have a deal for you!
So the idea will be to meetup Wednesday at around 10AM, walk the alleys of Melbourne to Queen Vic Market for a market style DIY lunch, and then head to a Tourist destination selected by attendees on the day from a selection such as:
-Eureka 88 Tower
-The Melbourne Failed Tourist Wheel
-Botanical Gardens and ANZAC Shrine
-Pop Culture shops like Minotaur
-A combination of the above
On Day 2 (Thursday) given how much abuse our amazing guests intend to take, we can do a field trip to Healesville to pat an actual Kangaroo, or down to Williamstown to drink beers by the Bay, or across to Werribee to visit our Open Plains Zoo, or hit up the State Galleries/Museums depending on how cultured you are feeling.
Day 2 would start around the same time and finish by about 3pm so people can rest up for PAX.
This can run with as few as 2-3 people, and as many as I can manage not to lose crossing the street outside Flinders Street Station.
Please leave names in the post below for interested people and what days you want to attend. If you REALLY want to see a particular attraction then leave it in the post and I will do my darn best to accommodate everyone I can.
Next week I will post my email and personal mobile so people can contact me when trying to locate me at the meetup points. I will respond to PM's if you want to stay super shy.
PAX people are our people, and this is an awesome chance to break the ice and see an amazing city of culture and attractions to befuddle the mind!
