MELBOURNE: 28 – 29 September 2010

After a very enjoyable and memorable time in Perth, Nenad next went to Melbourne [Victoria, Australia].

In the two days he was in Melbourne, Nenad met up with the Consul General Antun Babic and his wife Mrs Janja Babic, other consular employees, friends and new contacts such as Daniel Keas.

He also had interviews by: Boris Jakovac of 3ZZZ 92/3FM ; Kristina Kokulja of SBS Radio 93.1FM ; Slavica Habjanovic of Vjiesnik/Croatian Herald; and Janja Jaman of TV CH31.

Nenad also met the proprietor of the Zagreb Cro Bookshop [Miro Pritasanac] and the organisers of the Melbourne Festival in 2011.

The interview by SBS Crotian Radio was aired nationally and a copy placed on its website. It can be accessed through the link below:

Ante and Jean Marinovic were Nenad’s lovely hosts in Melbourne, with Boris Jakovac also acting as Nenad’s “tour guide”. Nenad enjoyed very much the warm hospitality accorded to him. His next and last stop in Australia was Sydney.
