Coming to Cosmopolitan Melbourne in Jan 09

by Yuletidee

Hi, my family and my 23 months child will be coming to Melbourne from Singapore at the end of Jan 09. We have booked the airticket and realised it happen to be Australia Open which is crowded.
As there will be only 3 of us, we will book local tour operator either APT TOURS or GO WEST Tours for 1) Great Ocean Road and 2) Penguin Island. Has anyone tried the tours before? We will book the tour online in Singapore first as the period will be crowded with tourists and we may not be able to get a tour if we book it in Melbourne. What do you think?
We have also booked a new hotel called 353 Causeway at Little Collins St, is new and just opened few months ago. Has anyone stay there before, how's the hotel?
As i will be travelling with a toddler, is there anything special to look out for?

Noticed you just joined VT - welcome.

Couple of points.
1. Melbourne is not that "over crowded" while the Aust Open is on, it is however quite busy.
2. The Causeway Hotel is in an arcade and is about a year old. Old building that has been re-furbished, would be quite good although as a local I have not stayed there. Little Collins Street is a narrow one-way street.
3. Not sure if you know that the Penguins don't come ashore until around 8.30pm at night. You are there for another 45 minutes or so and then the bus leaves to come back to the city - about a 2 hour trip. With a 23 month old child it may be a problem as he/she will be tired and cranky.
4. Great Ocean Road with APT is a 12 hour trip and again with a 23 month old, well if he/she is anything like ours were at that age, you'll be sorry - LOL I think 12 hours for that trip is too rushed and you could consider hiring a car and driving the GOR yourself and staying at least one night away, however there is a problem as the towns along the GOR are packed as its peak holiday season and you might find it difficult to get accom.

You said you were coming to Melbourne "end of Jan" - well if you come after 25th Jan, the Australian Tennis Open will have finished.
Also, most of the schools in Victoria re-open around 28 or 29th Jan - so if its after that, you will also be free of most school children!
I agree with SirG probably hiring a car would be the most comfortable way to get around with a toddler.
Enjoy your stay.

Several years ago we hired a car and drove the GOR , overnight at Lorne, then continued on to Adelaide with overnight stop at beautiful Port Fairy(past GOR).

Car hire with a young child would be best.

Thanks everyone for the answers! We will seriously think over the tours.

Travel Tips for Melbourne


by BerniShand

thanks to Laurie, VT member australia2, for going to look at this statue so that he could tell me who it is, as my journal was in parts illegible after an unexpected dip in a Queensland lake

my mystery man is John Hope[1860-1908] 1st Marquis of Linlithgow, 7th Earl of Hopetown, and 1st Governor General of Australia

Born in Scotland and educated at Eton and the Royal Militart Academy Sandhurst he did not join the army but concentrated on his family estate, following his move to Australia he was Governor of Victoria from 1889-95, and was appointed Governer General of Australia taking ofice on the 1st of January 1901 when the Commonwealth of Australia was formed
his time as Governor General was not without controversy, he first appointed Sir William Lyre as Prime Minister, an odd choice as he was opposed to federalisation and many representatives refused to serve under him, after his resignation the federationist Edmund Barton was appoointed.
Australians resented John Hope, he was considered to be too regalistic, and incurred great expense, finally after disputes about allowances he resigned in May 1902, leaving Australia in July of that year
He had hopes to be appointed Viceroy of India, but was made Secretary of State for Scotland, he died suddenly in 1908 John Hope is largely forgotten today, you can see his statue in the Kings Domain

St Kilda Beach

by eviltooth

Go to St. Kilda, take tram no. 16 from Swanston St and ask the friendly driver where to get off.

St. Kilda is famous for it's magnificient bay vistas, The Esplanade, and the Sunday Craft Market. Acland St is synonymous with cakes, Fitzroy St also has many cafés and restaurants and is always bustling with activity at night. Unfortunately, crime rate has increased in this area so just be careful like you would in any other place. Don't let this warning stop you from going there though.

If you like shells, there're plenty on the beach too, just make sure you don't take the life ones. :)

The Sunday Craft Market starts from 9am to 5pm every Sunday. It's where local artists come to sell their stuff, ranging from paintings, ceramics to hand made soaps and other knick knacks. If you like talking to locals, this is a good place to be. :) That's my dog Chub and my friend's cat Tonkie, aren't they cute? :)
I bring them to the beach whenever the weather's nice and not too windy.

Melbourne: Arts and Culture Pt 1

by Intrepidduck

Melbourne has several hundred private and public art galleries and spaces located mostly through out the inner city area. The largest collection of international art is at the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria) which contains the Ian Potter Centre, located also in a number of spaces such as at Federation Square. Some of Melbourne's other major public art spaces include ACCA (Australian Centre for Contemporary Art), Heide Museum of Modern Art, and 200 Gertrude Street.

Australian Formula One Grand Prix

by Diceman_

I specifically went to Melbourne to see the Grand Prix, overall it was a pretty good event. Nothing beats actually being there next to the track where the cars are racing, you just can't really connect the same way watching it through the TV.
In my opinion the Melbourne Grand Prix as an event wasn't as good as it's predecessor the Adelaide Grand Prix, the biggest difference being no after-race concert. The after-race entertainment consists of being able to walk along the track and check out pit lane through the wire fences. Also there aren't many parts of the track where the cars go slow. Albert Park is a picturesque setting though, with it's lake, palm trees and green grass.
A General Admission ticket on race day was $95, for the money it's probably better to invest in a grandstand ticket for around $350 which covers all four days and guarantees a decent view.
I recommend getting to the track at least three hours before the race starts. I got there an hour before and all the good spots I came across were jam-packed. If possible, find out from someone in the know where the best areas are.
If played right the Grand Prix can be a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Ear plugs, hat, beverage, sunglasses, emergency poncho (foldable plastic raincoat), and lightweight chair if going early.

Melbourne's Golden Mile

by ATXtraveler

If you are looking for a little historical information on some of Melbourne's more famous buildings, then the Golden Mile tour is the one for you.

Head over to 114 Flinders and pick up the information on this walk from the Convention and Marketing Bureau and set off!

This mile should take you about half a day if you really enjoy all of the landmarks. Some of these include the Rialto Observation Deck, Immigration Museum, Old Treasury Building, St. Michaels and a few others!
