Transfer from Melbourne to Mt Buller

by jackio1917

Hi, I will be visiting Melbourne in Jun 09 and am planning to go up MT buller ( 2-3 days trip)for 2 adult and a child (7 yrs old). We already have accomdation on MT Buller and now deciding on transportation to MT Buller.

I am deciding between taking a coach from Melbourne or drive a rental car to mansfield and take coach there up to Mt buller.

I check VLine coach but they only have either 8.30am coach that arrive at 1pm at MT buller (not maximising time on snow) or night coach.(costly to incur extra night stay on the mountain). Does any one know any coach that leave Melbourne early morning ( say 4-5am) and arrive MT Buller around 10am so that we can maximise the time on MT buller?

Alternative is to drive a rental car to Mansfield. Stay overnight at Yarra Valley and leave early morning 5am to reach mansfield around 8-9am. Park the car in Mansfield and take the Mansfield Mt Buller Bus to MT Buller. Is it safe to leave the rental car in Mansfield? ( MMBL website say that there is free parking available in Mansfield).

What would you suggest?

Those are the only buses to Mt Buller from Melbourne. You can leave your car in Mansfield, there are some parking places there, or you can hire a car with chains and drive to Mt Buller. The drive up the mountain is not too bad. The Melbourne - Mt Buller drive will take just over 2 hours on a good run.

Thanks for your reply. I am not confident to drive up the mountain as I have never drove in winter.

Check with some of the larger tour bus companies - AAT Kings is one of them - as they used to do day trip snow tours and left the city around 5 or 6 am. Not sure of the return time, but would think that would give you a good day at Mt B

Travel Tips for Melbourne

Go to the sky high restaurant...

by jodes45

Go to the sky high restaurant in the Dandenong Ranges. From there you can watch the sun set on Melbourne, and see the wonderful wildlife and bush. While I'm away from Australia I miss the people, and the lovely beaches

see Port Campbell's National...

by giocatto

see Port Campbell's National Park. A 32km. stretch of scenic and historic coastline incorporating a magnificent series of sheer cliffs, deep caverns, great archways, grottos, island gorges, blowholes and spectacular off-shore rock stacks.
THE GROTTO: the path leads down to a beautiful rock pool about 8mt. above the sea.
LONDON BRIDGE: one of the best known features of the coastline. The arch linking the 'bridge' to the mainland collapsed in January 1990.
TWO MILE BAY: a long walk over sand dunes to a good fishing beach; ideal for collecting tiny cowrie sheles and exploring reefs and rook pools at low tide.
LOCH ARD GORGE: the most famous wreck along the Shipwreck Coast. The iron clipper 'Loch Ard' foundered in 1878 claiming 49 lives. There were two young survivors, Eva Carmichael and Torn Pearce who were washed into the gorge. Pearce managed to scale the precipitous cliffs to summon help and the story of tragedy and bravery continues to capture the imagination. The photo below showes the famous Arch.

...speaking Italian!!!!

by aussie75

In Melbourne there is a huge number of Italians!!! People that emigrated after the IIWW and new Italians like myself looking for a better life.
In many areas people still speak Italian so a suggestion would be to come to the CIS (Centre of Italian Studies) where I work and learn this beautiful language!!! :)

Be aware of Maria and Micky... :)

The sports capital of Australia

by thescene

The sports mad Aussies have often debated about which among Sydney and Melbourne is the sporting capital of the country. The city of Melbourne I have to say has the advantage as it hosts some of the most important sporting events including the Australian Open tennis, Melbourne Cup as well as a selection cricket and rugby matches. The city has some of the best sporting venues such as the Melbourne Cricket Ground and the Ettihad Stadium which holds big events.

One for the risktakers and one for the safeties.

by australia2

For those who are of the intrepid type the Lerderderg Gorge area, a State Park, is a great place to go. About forty-five k's north-west of Melbourne on the Western Highway it is very easy to get to. Just past Bacchush Marsh and its apple orchards there is enough climbing and challenge around the next ten or so k's, over a wide area, to satisfy the most hardy. The surrounding countryside provides magnificent viewing. For the less energetic sight -seeing on foot around the "back-beach" track areas of the Mornington Penninsula, is the go. The same distance but this time to Melbourne's south-east; accessible on perfect roads. Again beautiful countryside this time beside the ocean which is Bass Strait. Approximately four hundred k's south across the Strait is the lovely island of Tasmania and from that direction come the strong cold winds, the edge of "The Roarin' Forties". The exploring is well worth doing. In both areas flora and fauna abound( this includes plentiful bird life ) (Photographs will follow).
