Hi would like to know can caravan enter the city centre?
I wanted to go to victoria market and luna park but some people told me that i can't drive my caravan into the city.
For you info, at night i ll park it at Sundowner Caravan park

Thank you so much

Re: Caravan

by Kjay01

when we cross from Tas each year we get to Vic market, Franklin St. side & where the tram does a 1/4 right turn at the market we go straight on into the side street. Early morning there is no problem & on Saturdays there is no limits. Otherwise you need to find a street up near Brunswick Rd. & Sydney Rd. to park & then take a tram back to QVM.
Luna Park won't be easy as all streets in StKilda have either meters or time limits. Suggest trying to park near the Shrine in a back street & take tram to StKilda.
In either case you are better off leaving your van at the c/van park & going to the city on a bus,tram, or train. We stay at Frankston at the Big 4 & go up to Melb for the day or stay at either Ballarat or Bendigo & take the train for the day out.
C/van parks around Melb aren't good & are seriously overpriced, I know as I've stayed at most over the years

Another alternative for St Kilda is to drive along Carlisle St (the tram line) and park East if Williams Road and then take the tram back.

You should be aware of our infamous hook turns - and I'd hate to be a stranger in the city, towing a caravan, and suddenly come across a right turn that is done from the left lane. I have a warning on my Melb page which includes an animated link on how to do a hook turn.

The bottom end of Fitzroy Street turning into Upper Esplanade St Kilda and close to Luna Park has road works at the moment and you could end up lost in the back streets - hard enough in a car, with a van - forget it.

Serously suggest you park the van and car out of the city and tram/train/bus/taxi into the city and St Kilda.

That is an interesting question. As far as I know (?) I don't think that there is a law against towing a caravan into the city centre but it would be very, very unwise.
The maneuvering around would be extremely awkward and probably dangerous.
And almost hopeless for parking.
The previous answers are good to follow.
In fact even around the suburbs is unwise particularly because of the many tram routes.
Surely you would leave the caravan at the Sundowner and travel part by car then public transport to where you want to go.
Public tansport is quite good.

Thank you so much for all the valueable information. Decided to park our caravan at Big 4 @ Coburg and take the train to queen victoria market.
Hope everything turn out to be great. Thanks

Travel Tips for Melbourne

Best chinese restaurants,...

by smooch4u

Best chinese restaurants, Little Chinatown, in Little Bourke Street.
Places to see along the east coast: Gippsland: Wilson Promontory, Phillip Island-fairy penguin parade at dusk only, 90 Mile Beach (fantastic fishing and beautiful beaches), Buchan Caves.
Central: Crown Casino at Southbank, also has great nightclubs, as well as the pokies, the Great Ocean Road, which goes from Geelong to Port Fairy, absolutely beautful, avoid during the winter months of March to September, plenty of sights to see along the road, the 12 apostles, london bridge, the great shipwreck coastline, Our stupid weather here, forget about 4 seasons in 1 day, instead try 1 hour. During the months of March to August, see an Aussie Rules Football Match, no protective gear for these guys. Take the talking City Circle Tram, its free, takes you around the city.

Queen Victoria Markets

by CandS

Check out the Queen Victoria Markets. Located on the corner of Elizabeth & Victoria Streets.

At the markets you will find all sorts of things - fresh produce, clothes, crafts, jewelry, leather goods etc. It's a great place to spend a couple of hours...

Open Tuesday to Sunday.

Dont tip unless you want to

by dutyfree

Melbourne does not require people to tip for services... Our wages are reasonable and only tip if you feel you want to.. You will get the same service and employees are not going to treat you like a leper like some parts of the world, and you know who you are lol

Surviving winter in Mebourne

by eviltooth

The winter in Melbourne can get very wet and windy. The wind is so strong that it can blow you away if you are using an umbrella, so bring a waterproof and windproof jacket instead, preferably with a hood. A beanie or hat would also be helpful to keep you warm.

Better still, bring someone to keep you warm. :)

THE magic view of Melbourne

by nath250

Firstly, you'll need a car - as is essentially always the case when you do anything in Australia.

Head to the 'Mt. Dandenong Observatory' to the direct east of Melbourne. Get up there before 10pm, as the gates are shut and locked after that. (My map to the left will give you some idea, but you'll really need to borrow/beg/steal a 'Melways' (Melbourne maps in a huge book) to guarantee you wont get lost.

The observatory is placed overlooking Melbourne, but what is the best is the observatory carpark. It is multi tiered and faces towards the massive expanse that is Melbourne, apparently the 'biggest city in the world' (by physical 'spread out' size...). Get there with beer and mates at around 6 or 7pm is the best, and watch the sunset which always sets perfectly over the city. At sunset time, all the lights of Melbourne come on. Some clear nights you can see the massive gas flames from Crown Casino, in the centre of Melbourne.

It is absolutely brilliant, and even after having been up there countless times as my university wasn't that far from it, and I'll always go back there. Its a great atmosphere up there, people often sit up on the roof racks of thier cars, out of the back of panelvans, those with significant others steam up the windows... Some nights people get out and firetwirl etc, and usually people turn thier car stereos up which can be both a good and bad thing...

Enjoy it!
