For the first few minutes of the journey, it didn't seem to be particularly scenic for what was meant to be a scenic drive. Just as I was starting to bemoan the lack of anything to look at other than some trees close by, the view of the suburbs totally opened up.
The first hint of a view on the Mount Cooper scenic drive.
At the peak is a place to stop and look out over the city and suburbs. On one side is the city skyline, while on the other side a string of powerlines dominate the view of the suburbs. With the city appearing grey and difficult to discern, the view of endless houses in the suburbs is more impressive.
Hi Natasha, you should have gone and had a light meal at the Bundoora Homestead, which is in the immediate area, it's a lovely old building, once a horse stud, but more recently it was used as a hospital for people returning from the second world war. It's open from Wednesday to Sunday, they have a little cafe which serves light meals, in the beautiful old dining room. There is also an art Gallery upstairs, and it's free to enter. Next time you are in the area, it's well worth a visit.
