2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games

With the Games less than 40 days away, Melbournians and many from overseas are preparing for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. For those of you who are in Melbourne (or coming to Melbourne for the Games), the following is a checklist that I've put together to get ready for this momentous event:
  1. Check out the free activities in the city during the Games as part of Festival Melbourne 2006.
  2. See the Queen's Baton Relay as it passes through all 71 Commonwealth nations on the way to Melbourne.
  3. Consider joining a local sporting club.
  4. Organise a party. I'm planning to invite my friends over to share the atmosphere through watching TV.
  5. Take part in or pray for the activities of Quest Melbourne More Than Gold.
  6. Look out for the Road Events during the Games, like the marathon, cycling and walk events.
  7. Party in the city! With 90,000 interstate and international visitors, the city will be alive!!!

I am so looking forward to it!

Sounds like Melbourne will be great fun at this time of the year! Perth is soooo far away, another world so we'll miss out a bit.

Hi Kitty,

Thanks for your information, I spent most time in Melbourne staying around South Yarra, what about you?

Melbourne is developing really fast...I still prefer festive at Chapel Street where you have $1 bucks for fresh oyster, $2 bucks or less for a good beer ! Not forgetting heaps of hand-made art beauty!

God is so good, enjoy His creation:-)

My prayers are with you and everyone there. I do hope all goes well and without incident. I also hope you have a wonderful time. ;-)

Hi Godwyn, I live in SouthBank, which is not far from South Yarra at all.

Yes I love Melbourne, and I really enjoying living here.
