Public transport from CBD to Birkdale Avenue

by tracyskf

Hi - I need to get to Birkdale Avenue from CBD - is there any public transport that I can take there besides getting a taxi? Thank you

Birkdale Ave, Heathcote?

It's a long way out from the CBD. You can get a train from the city to Cheltenham or Mentone (Sandringham line). That'll put you a couple of miles from your destination. Take a taxi from the station. Birkdale St is off Warrigal Rd - there may be buses.

Thanks... in specific, I need to get to Birkdale Avenue, Heatherton from Spencer Street, CBD. I think it is 40 min drive, but I guess that would be very costly by taxi. So I guess your advice would probably be the best. Is there more than 1 Birkdale Ave?

Take Sandringham train from Spencer St. If none showing on screen, simply take the train to Flinders Street (one stop) and join Sandringham train from there (sometimes Sandringham train starts from Flinders St).
Taxi would probably cost you $A50+. Train/taxi $A10-15.

Not aware of any other Birkdale Streets.

Birkdale Ave is in Heatherton. So going taking a train to Cheltenham Station would be OK. I would think a taxi would cost about AUD40-50.
You could also go to Oakleigh Station by train and get a 903 bus down to the Kingston centre which is just north of Birkdale.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

Lygon street

by MishyM

Lygon street is one of the best streets (if not THE best) in Melbourne if you want to go to a café or have dinner - especially Italian.

This place is where I became addicted to coffee and is packed with amazing Italian restaurants, as well as a fantastic chocolate shop - Koko Black (try their hot chocolate if you dare) as well as bakeries, clothing shops, book shops and cake shops. There are also places there to buy sushi and other asian food - so it is not just restricted to Italian.

One place you must not miss if you like desert is Brunetti's. (it is actually on Faraday St, but this is just off Lygon street) This place is a Melbourne institution, and rightly so. It is amazing, really, I would move in there if I could. It has almost every type of cake known to man, as well as a large section of biscuits and chocolates. The white forest cake is to die for as well as the tiramisu.

There are plenty of places to get a tradition wood oven pizza, as well as great pasta, and even a traditional aussie pub or two if that is what you prefer. There is a place on this street to fit any budget, as as it is about a 2 min walk away from Melbourne University, there are plenty of places for poor students as well!

It is just such a lively part of Melbourne - day or night, and you will be sure to find a great place to eat there! To get there, take the tram to The University of Melbourne and then get off at the University stop. Lygon street is about a 2 min walk away from there.

Ask the tram driver if you are a bit worried about how to get there - they are all friendly and happy to help from my experience

Melbourne Tip

by Travel_Gal

One afternoon I went to visit the Melbourne Zoo, and spent the afternoon walking around to see the various birds, and animals, especially the ones unique to Australia. The beautiful birds especially caught my eyes, some I'd never seen before. As I left the zoo, heading out to catch the tram, I looked up in the trees along the way, and saw several beautiful birds. Wasn't sure of the type, it might have been cockatoos. But it just surprised and pleased me to see these beautiful birds flying free. (This photo was taken in the zoo.)

Melbourne Aquarium

by CandS

The Melbourne Aquarium was really nice...although not as good as the Sydney Aquarium if you ask me. Also the price was a bit steep ($22 for an adult). Still, I loved watching the fish and could have sat there for hours...

The aquarium is open from 9:30 to 9 pm in January and 9:30 am to 6 pm for the rest of the year.

Aboriginal Arts

by eviltooth

Appreciate the unique Aboriginal Art in the many galleries in the city. Aboriginal tribes have for thousands of years created elaborated sand and body paintings using sand, ochres, blood, feathers, twigs and seeds for their ceremonies. In recent years, these designs have been recreated first on hardboard and now in acrylic paint on canvas. Most artistic expression is concerned with myths and totemic beliefs of spirit ancestors – THE DREAMTIME – a time of creation, the underlying essence of all aborigine life and nature.
