Melbourne, 10D9N Family of 5 May20-09 Stay? Do?

by StevenKimball

Hi,
We are from Alaska. Husband, Wife and 3 boys, 10 to 15 ages need to determine where to stay and what to do. Yes, economy is our goal, but we may have to play the tourist trap game. I see on the web, motor home rentals are high, is that true? I would say we need to get out of town to see wildlife and scenic areas, to casually visit with the locals, our kids playing with yours kind of a deal. Would anyone be interested in helping escort us to make the best of our time and keep us safe? On 5-29 off to Brisbane till 6-11.

Thank you for your time and care in answering. Steven Kimball

Motorhomes and not that common as a traelling vehicle. We locals tend to leave them be at our favourite holiday or fishing spot. Biggest tourist trap is probably the Penguin parade at Philip Island (I may get crucified here , lets see wha thappens). If you know where to look you don't need to travel all that far or pay much for wildlife experiences. Check out my melbourne page. Happy to help out where possible and will email you with suggestions.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

go on the Puffing Billy train...

by blueangel

go on the Puffing Billy train ride as its for kids and adults alike...u get to sit on the sides of the train and swing your legs over treetops plus you get a glimpse of forest life and quaint forest cottages...make sure yr shoes are fastened well though! definitely the penguins from Phillip Island...they go out to sea each dawn and come back in the evening.visitors to the penguin show get to see them coming out from the sea at very close proximity...its as if you could reach out and touch them!they're so cute and the minute one of them senses danger,the whole group turns around and waddles back into the sea.otherwise you can actually follow them as they make their way back to their homes on various parts of the beach.it's an evening ritual which has been taking place for thousands of years and one night there is not enough...in a word..its magical

Resting

by l_joo

Resting tip is where I sat down to rest, over walking, need some rest, so I build a tip to rest. But wait, my resting tip is not merely resting, there are so many things to see in the photo, a nice big shady tree, a beautiful dust bin, a bench in green color, some leaves with or without sunlight, shadows, a red object, a yellow object plus many many more to see. This tip is, without doubt, deserved a top award.

THE LOCALS HATE SYDNEY: ...

by Gnome

THE LOCALS HATE SYDNEY: Melbourne has an unfortunate geographical position, as it is relatively close to one of the world's most exciting and beautiful cities - Sydney. In comparison, Melbourne is like a big ugly sister who has a nice personality, but you wouldn't really want to spend a night there. As such, a lot of Melbournians have a big chip on their shoulder, because Sydney is a much more expensive, glamourous, exciting, global city that they could never afford to live in. If someone asks you about Sydney, just tell them that it was really terrible. They will become your best friend. (For all the Melbournians who read this - I am only joking - try to GET OVER IT!!)

MCG - The Melbourne Cricket Ground

by keeweechic

The Melbourne Cricket Ground is a major venue for most sporting and entertainment events that are held in Melbourne. Melburnians are fanatical with their Aussie Rules Footy. Outdoor concerts are also held there from time to time. While I was dragged along to the odd footy match (but in the comfort of a private box), no one had to drag me to one of the concerts there.

The MCG is also home to the Australian Gallery of Sport which records Australian sporting history and the Olympic Museum, with memorabilia dating back to the first Olympics in 1896.

Yarra Park, Jolimont.

Take any tram travelling east along Flinders St from the city; nearest stations Jolimont or Richmond; it's a five-minute drive from the city.

Yarra Valley

by leffe3

An hour's drive from Melbourne is the Yarra Valley, famed for its vineyards and superb wines. Day trips can be organised from the city to take you out to the many of the best vineyards and to give you a real taste (literally and metaphorically!) of the wine growing area and regional Victoria.

(this picture is there to also point out that Australia is not all about red dust and perpetual sunshine!).
