HI ! I'm in Melbourne for two weeks and i would like to find someone to meet with and who's eager to show me around the city or is in melbourne right now and would like to visit the city and its surroundings with me.

When i was traveling in Australia 9 years ago bin 2004, i got a 150$ fine for having no ticket in the public transportation in Melbourne.
I am planning on going back to Australia soon, and i was wondering if anyone here knows if i could have a problem getting into the country because of that?
Is there an expiration date on these fines? maybe after 10 years?
Thank you in advance..
How far is the beach from the righton Metro Station ?
Hoping to get some help re: farm work for our 2nd year Visa. Can anybody recommend a reliable/paid farming job preferably on the East Coast? We're not looking to go through a working hostel either.
Our group of 12 adults are taking a cruise in November and will dock at Melbourne for 10 hours. We would like to go to the Ocean Road and to also see the 12 Apostles. Can any body give us some advises. How long is the drive? Is there tours available? How's the road condition. We heard something about that the road on the Ocean Road has been damaged!!
I'm a new immigrant moving to Melbourne in October with my wife and one year old daughter. We would like to rent a 2 bedroom apartment with easy access to public transportation. We have looked at places through realestate.com.au and most of the places we like are the new apartment projects in southbank, docklands, and travencore. Out of the 3 suburbs, I can get a 2 bedroom at Travencore for about $360/week and the other 2 are even more expensive. My budget is about $300/week for now. Are there other areas where they have these new apartment projects, preferably high rise? We have looked at places like Northcote, Heidelberg, Ivanhoe, etc. but most apartments there are very old and within a small complex; but we would prefer a larger apartment complex. I won't mind a bit further from the CBD as long as there is good public transport. Suggestions/advice would be appreciated.
My family of 2 adults and 2 kids (6yo and 11yo) will be visiting Melbourne for the first time in mid to end-November and staying in the St Kilby area. We won't be renting a car and intend to use public transport as much as possible. Would really appreciate any suggestions and directions to a fruit farm via public transport please? Due to our limited geographical knowledge, we have difficulty trying to figure out a way to get to a farm listed in www.pickyourown.org. Thanks!
I will be traveling to Melbourne from the US in a week. Due to misinformation given a month ago, I just found out that my cell phone does not have international capabilities (no SIM card). I do not want to incur the costs of an early upgrade and purchasing a new phone for this trip since I will only be there for about 10 days. What would be the best, most inexpensive option to have a cell phone to use for local calls/texts while in Melbourne? I really only need it to keep in contact with the person I am traveling with in the event we get separated. I have tried researching options, but it's becoming very overwhelming. Can I just by a tracfone or something similar and just add minutes as needed? If so, where would be the best place to purchase one?
Hi. I am going to be in Melbourne in September and would love to take some photos of the Canola Fields. I would appreciate it if someone would confirm whether they will be in flower at that time and where the best place is for me to find them? Actual Road names would be very helpful.
As I am planning to come visit Mel and Syd, I am curious about kind of help exchange when traveling between Vietnam and Australia. Let say: you go to VN and I will be your tour guide and support everything to make your trip pleasant and vice versa, I come to your country and you help me. No charge at all. Is there anyone interested?
If we have 2 kids (aged 4 & 2), Warrock Cattle Farm or Churchill Island Heritage Farm is better to go?

Hi, I am thinking to go to Melbourne but want to know if there is any bus or shuttle from the international terminal to Melbourne CBD...

Hey everyone, I'm Sophie
I'm new to all of this but its just a quick question.
I'm 21 from London i will be studying in Melbourne City for 7 months. And i'm unsure of where to stay for accommodation obviously i'm on a cheap budget and can't be spending $250 per week which is what is coming up. Does anyone know of any student(ish) areas.
Also a-lot of the room rentals sound really bloody boring i may-be 21 and doing my final year, but i still have a life and want to socialise :D. Many of the rooms offered want boring people at the sounds of it. I want to know if anyone knows of a student website for international students travelling to Australia to have a chat and get to meet new people. I want to take full advantage of being Australia not pitched up in a room full of people that can't be bothered to talk! We only live once and i intend on getting the most out of my stay. HELP PEOPLE!!!!! :)
Hi there. I'm due to touch down in Melbourne in under 2 weeks. I just wanted some opionions or what would we be best when it came to apartment searching? Would going direct to real estate agents be the best way? Does anybody have any safe/trustworthy websites they can recommend? My girlfiend had been looking on flatmates.com.au but she has her suspisions as the apartments and prices look to good to be true. Can anybody verify whether or not this is a trustworty website.
Thanks in advance.
Rialto Tower, Melbourne vs Eureka Tower on Southbank, which one is a better choice to view Melbourne from above?
Just curious if there are others who have used the Melbourne free City Circle Tram and Melbourne Visitor Shuttle plus walking to See-It-All in the city of Melbourne in 3 full days like what we plan to do? Mind sharing your experiences? What are the places you have visited? The pros and cons of using the public transport in Melbourne? Long waiting hours? Can’t find a seat in the bus/tram and got to stand all the way from point A to point B? Safe to walk in the small lanes in Melbourne? Too much walking & too tired legs? etc. etc. We search online and couldn’t find any reviews of this sort :D
what kind of clothes to pack in luggage while traveling to melbourne in 3rd week of april
Any suggestion for 3 days 2 nights GOR tour package with resort type of accommodation?
Hello, my wife and I (early 60's) are planning on about 10 days in Melbourne next March. We will first arrive in Brisbane in late February (from the US) and spend 5 days there before flying to Melbourne.
We figure to hire a car and also rent a self-catering apartment.
Aside from that, we've seen day tours from Viator which look interesting.
We'd appreciate some feedback and ideas.
We anticipate returning the car to the train station and taking the overnight train to Sydney for some time there before returning home.
I've been reading the website and it goes on about Myki and tells you how to use it etc but doesn't seem to say that you must use it.... So, does anyone know if I can I still purchase tickets for buses/trams/trains with cash?
We are senios of 60+, will be in Melbourne for 7 nights in late October 2013, & plan to see most of the must-see in and around Melbourne. We are thinking of 2 alternatives:
(1) Book accommodation on our own & buy 1-day or 2-days trips to go out of Melbourne, or
(2) Buy a package including accommodation & day tours from a tour agent.
Which one will be a better choice? Please advise. Thanks.
was wondering if anyone can give me some info about the DFO's in Melbourne. I hear there are more than 1 & was wondering which was the best & where they were.
Im arriving on the 27th march (late) and would like to stay in Melbourne for 2-3 days, until i find a way to get to Adelaide for a look around. I have already been on Couchsurfing website, but no one is free to host during the week it seams, so i was wondering, if anyone local on here would like to put me up for a couple of nights from the 28th march? Please fill free to email me as many questions about me as you like.
Hi everyone. Due to arrive in Melbourne on the 06th May 2013 with my g/f. For the first couple of nights we are going to stay in a hotel. We're currently doing our research via gumtree for apartments we could possibly rent. We've been given locations such as flinders st, collins st, bourke st etc... We will both be getting jobs to support our stay. Can anybody recommend the best locations to stay for value for money? As an estimate we would be looking to pay between $200 - $300. Are there any other sites people could recommend?
Thanks again VT
