The exact same dates we've decided to visit Melbourne, so has the Grand Prix. Because the Grand Prix is in Melbourne, hotels in Melbourne are super expensive, so my sister-in-law found a super cute hotel/condo in Williamstown right outside Melbourne. The place we stayed at was with Quest hotels, but it was a cute little two storey condo. Below is a picture from inside our living room looking out at our view, and the other two pictures are of the lake behind our hotel. It was really quite lovely.
