    The Sam Merrifield Library had a stunning display on Australian Rules football. In January, Francis Doherty hosted an historic exhibition of Australian football cards, which introduced fans to the history of football. He has also written a complimentary illustrated publication, "The Glory Years of Aussie Rules," which is held in the library.

    Puckle Street is a shopping strip that changes for the better. We have lived in Melbourne's inner west for more than for 30 years; Puckle Street has evolved from the center of a scrungy meat and vegetable market for struggling customers to a progressive shopping strip that attracts trendy young people, including travelers. The abandoned shopping arcade has been converted into a fashionable multiplex cinema. Nearby is Brunetti, a sophisticated Italian-style coffee shop, renowned throughout the city. Six Points Cafe is a quirky cafe that is favored by the Moonee Ponds in-crowd. The Puckle Street strip is the commercial and retail center of Moonee Ponds, which in itself is an evolving up-market residential suburb. Puckle Street changes for the better every time we go there.

    Moonee Ponds Creek Trail is largely untouched and makes a good day out. It's a collection of Moonee Ponds ponds and creeks which link Gladstone Park, Tullamarine, Essendon, Moonee Ponds and Flemington Bridge. It takes in Five Mile Creek and Travancore. These days, the connection to the Mooney Valley Chain of Ponds is noted, it can be seen from Mt Alexander Road in Flemington. The hiker-biker trip is around 12 miles (20 km). The Moonee Ponds Creek Trail is being steadily upgraded, as concrete is reverting to natural creek banks. It also helps improve the environmental outlook for native fauna.

    This antique shop is a mecca for treasure hunters. Amidst the bric-a-brac, one can find all sorts of old wares, from porcelain to Masonic regalia to antique furniture. . De Brett's is a feature of Mt Alexander Road that always draws attention. You never know what you will find until you look.

    Moonee Ponds Station is one of the oldest stations in the Melbourne suburban train network. The station does have some historic value. It could do with an upgrade, including restoring the toilets, which were closed as a cost-cutting measure. Moonee Ponds is situated on the Craigieburn Line. The station book-ends Puckle Street, one of the best-known strip shopping centers in Melbourne.

    The Burke and Wills expedition's first stop was in Moonee Ponds. Mount Alexander Road led to the Outback, where both Burke and Wills perished. The camp was not a good omen, the horses and camels were watered at the Queens Park Lake. The animals did not get on and we were soon separated. Burke and Wills' expedition is a tragedy that stuck in the minds of Australians, particularly Victorians.

    The old Court House is over 130 years old and has been lovingly restored. I came in for some research and found the people very well informed and helpful. There was an exhibition of children's toys over the last 100 years and I found this interesting as well.

    Maribyrnong Park is a large park accommodating. several popular sporting codes. Apart from Australian Rules Football, which is played by both boys and girls, the oval is used for cricket in the summer. Tennis is another popular sport for both genders. The park adjoins the Maribyrnong River, one of the features of Melbourne's north-western suburbs. The park is also a good space to go for a stroll or walk the dog.

    Now that the Covid epidemic is receding, Aberfeldie Park is returning to its traditional role as an Australian rules football ground, for both men and women. The club house is quite impressive and a crowd usually gathers for a celebratory drink after the main game. The oval is well looked after, it's also an off-leash dog park. Please be considerate and pick up any doggie droppings. The children's playground is suitable for active children of varying ages.
