    Pros: Other than check in/out I had no dealings with staff or any need to contact them
    The location is great, only a short distance to the markets and shops.
    The room itself was adequate in terms of cleanliness and amenities .
    Having a carpark beneath the room was very handy.

    Cons: The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything even at a whisper going on in the other rooms and everyone who trapzes up and down the hallways as there is no carpet.
    The lights from the hallway shine in very bright even with the curtains shut so if like me, that is something that would bother you trying to sleep this place is not for you.
    They give you a key for the main door which they tell you is for night time access however over my four nights there this was never locked at any point which means any weirdo off the street has complete access to wander through the complex and right to your room door if they wanted to as no staff are present at the counter in the evenings.
    The carpark has broken furniture, rubbish and graffiti everywhere and again is accessible to anyone off the street.

    Overall it is a cheap hotel and you get what you pay for. My stay was adequate. I feel I could have gotten better for the same money elsewhere and I would not stay there again.

Great Ocean Road Itinerary Suggestions?

by lovinoz

We are driving the Great Ocean Road this week and would love suggestions for off the beaten track things to do, places to eat, etc.

Wednesday night we're staying near Fed Square, Thursday morning we're driving to Apollo Bay and staying the night there, Friday night we're staying in Port Fairy and Saturday night we're staying in Port Campbell. We fly out from Melbourne on Sunday afternoon.

Thanks in advance for any advice and have a Happy New Year!! :)

Seems a bit funny to stay Friday night at Port Fiary and then doubling back on roads you've already travelled on to stay at Port Campbell on Sat night. Will be a big days drive Apollo Bay - Port Fairy and leaves very little time to get to see anything. Also roads will be packed as this week is peak holiday season. The Cape Otway lighthouse is worth the 10 km each way off the GOR, but needs a couple of hours to take in all the exhibitions/viewing.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

Prince's Bridge - Separating North and Southbanks

by ATXtraveler

The city of Melbourne was built on the banks of the Yarra River, and there is a big distinction between the North and South banks of this river. The northbank holds the CBD, big business, financial firms, Australia's Wall Street, while the Southbank is home to the Crown Gaming Complex, the Victorian Arts Centre, and the Royal Botanical Gardens.

The main path that connects these two distinct regions is the Prince's Bridge, which also happens to be St. Kilda Blvd. The bridge stretches from Flinders Station and Federation Square south to the Victorian Arts Centre and the park system.

Enjoy a tram ride, or bring your bike out for a day around North and Southbank and make sure you view Prince's bridge from one of the banks. It has recently been restorated, and re-painted, which took 6 months or so. Luckily we have been here for 9 months now, so we could see it!

Car Parking

by l_joo

Car Parking is not much fun if I compare with Malaysia. You see in Melbourne, there were hardly any double parkings or triple parkings, no 'Shiok lah' (Malaysian language), but hey if you come to Malaysia, you can enjoy excessive double parkings, triple parkings or even quadruple parkings on highway, all main streets and backstreets, something so special and unique of cultural difference, I am beginning to question what went wrong, they said in tourism industry, one must not reveal ugliness, you must only build beautiful tips.

G'day mate!!! Probably the...

by wen_viaggio

G'day mate!!! Probably the most common greeting you'll hear there.

Oh. And never call a Koala a 'bear'. Despite it's similarities with those grizzlies, the Koala is not known as a bear. It is known as a marsupial(animals that carry their offspring in pouches eg.kangaroos). So if you want to call a Koala a 'bear', prepared to get sniggled at by the locals.

Tennis- Davis Cup !!

by grantravel

We went to the first day of the Davis Cup Semifinal on the 19 September 2003. It was quite a chilli day outside of Rod Laver Arena, but inside was a different story, the atmosphere was electric. I would love to come back here for the Australian Open one day. Some binoculars would be handy.

Hanging Rock

by didgeridorien

This is a hill in Woodend. It's got some strangely shaped rocks, hence the name. It's famous because of Joan Lindsay's novel, Picnic on Hanging Rock. Hanging Rock is sacred to the Wurrenjerrie Aboriginals. There are walking tracks up the hill and you may see some wildlife. If you go there on New Years Day or Australia Day, the Hanging Rock Picnic Race Meetings are on. This is a great day full of horce racing, gambling and the greatest ozzie picnic's.
