Melbourne Cup

by hanwilks

Help - have been given the job of booking accomodation for a group of 8 females for Melbourne Cup - is it too late? The city seems to be sold out?! Any advice? We would want to be no further than 12km from CBD/Flemmington. Thanks!

I'm sure there must still be places to be had in the city and you haven't given any indication of your budget but you might like to look at these apartments.

Essendon is 14km from the CBD but only 5-6km from Flemington and there is good public transport into the city.

Don't know your budget or the style of accommodation you are after but try they still have 2 bedroom apartments available & are right by a tram stop.

You could also try The Nunnery in Carlton. It is near the Exhibition Buildings so it is close by the CBD.

What you also have to remember is that Melbourne Cup week is premium period for hotels - many charge 100% more per night than the normal rate.

You may want/need to look at accommodation on St Kilda Rd (quite a few to chose from) and St Kilda itself. It's about 5kms from the city (and St Kilda Rd runs from the city to St K) but advantage is there's direct trams to Flinders Lane Station and the special trains out to Flemington.

St Kilda is a bayside spot with lots of action.

If you are thinking of taking the train to Flemington, with a hundred thousand other people then you should try to stay near Flinders Street Station, Southern Cross Station or North Melbourne station.

Budget accommodation is pretty much out of the question for the entire Spring Racing Carnival week. You know the saying "make hay while the sun shines". If you can find something I would book it straightaway.

There is availability on Melbourne Cup day on The rate for the Oaks on Collins looks pretty reasonable. I would jump on this straightaway.

Just realised you posted your questions on May 5. Hope you have found something by now.

BigRed Double Decker Bus

by seagoingJLW

Hop on the big, red, double decker bus that takes you on a 19 stop tour of Melbourne. Your ticket is good for 12 hours and you can hop off the bus at any stop and hop onto the next bus to continue. Best of all, for two senior citizens, the cost was Aus$2.50 each.
Unbelievable value.

Located on the corner of Lonsdale and Elizabeth streets is the oldest Catholic Church in Melbourne, St Francis Church. The first Catholic Mass was held in Melbourne in 1839. In the following years, temporary structures where used for worship awaiting completion in 1845 of the present building. St Francis Church is one of the best known and loved churches in Australia helped by its central location, making it access able and welcome to workers, travellers, shoppers and those in need alike. If you enjoy music of worship, St Francis is renowned for this and has many choirs including the St Francis Choir. Wide varieties of services are provided at the Pastoral Centre and these include counselling, spiritual direction and social assistance. St Francis has been undergoing extensive restoration works since 1996.
