      Thanks Marsha, I do love Melbourne as well…but not much old history in it like the architecture in Europe.

        No, in that respect its much like the Western US. Most of the western states were settled by men hoping to find a fortune in gold or silver. Both Australia’s and America’s Gold Rush occurred around 1849. Silver was a little sooner, I think. Those events increased the populations.
