      Hi,
      I'm coming to melbourne this june.
      I will stay a night at Lorne after a day on GOR.
      The next day, I'm planning to take a ferry to Mornington and drive to Phillip Island.
      Hoping to catch the penguin parade. My question is, should I spend a night at Phillip Island or is there a nice place to stay nearby as the accomodation cost is quite high?

      Hi We are 2 females who want to take 3 days/ 2 nights for the GOR from Melbourne to Adelaide in May. Id appreciate advice on:
      Would it be better (cheaper and worthwhile) to hire a campervan (I hear Britz are good) and camp than to hire a car?
      Where would it be best to stop over? Which towns or good camping sites/ backpackers?
      What highlights would you suggest given our limited time? We enjoy swimming and non-extreme hiking.
      We're on a tight budget and the SA rand/ AUD isn't so good for us - so any other advice would be helpful.
      Thanks!

      Good evening, I have looked at the public transport website and there appear to be about 5 changes of bus required. It will be the march public holiday monday and I would like to travel either late morning or early afternoon. Will all these changes really be necessary, my friends in Bayswater would certainly drive me to a more convenient station if necessary. I don,t know Bayswater at all.

    • Cheaper alternatives to Southbank, Docklands & Travencore?

      by Johndoe28 Online Now Sep 3, 2013 at 9:41 PM

      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.

    • What is the best cheap option for a local cell phone to use for a week?

      by TC1978 Online Now Aug 10, 2013 at 11:49 AM

      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?

      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.
