There's a store in Swan Street, Richmond, that carries all of the Melbourne teams in soccer and ARL (not Australian football league) From the new rectangular stadium (home of Melb Storm) head towards Church street about 75 metres before church street on right heading away from city

Rebel Sport carry the offical NRL merchandise, their store in the city is at
Melbourne Central shopping centre which is located on the corner of LaTrobe & Swanston Streets. The Rebel Sport shop in on the lower ground floor.
Once you get to Melbourne I would phone them to check on stock of your size,
their numbers are; Phone: 03 9663 6044 & 03 9663 6044

Come to think about it, there is a supporter shop at AAMI Park (name for the rectangular stadium) and home ground for Melb Storm. I've been on line at http://www.aamipark.com.au/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-169/156_read-142/ and tried to find the official shop (apart from on-line). Sorry I drew a blank, but if you troll around that web link and the home page - http://www.aamipark.com.au/ - you may find what you're looking for. Sorry I don't follow ARL, but I do follow Collingwood in the AFL and their shop is worth a visit and next door to AAMI Park. Anything you want in black and white (team colours) you'll find it there.

Suggest you may want to do a tour of the MCG (walking distance from AAMI Park) and if you still want more, then there's Rod Laver Arena where the Australian Open is held in Jamuary.

Enjoy.

Try MSD at 67 Swanston Street in the city as well.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

As Dame Edna says, "Hello Possums."

by sirgaw

Barry Humphries aka Dame Edna Everage has been starting off 'her' TV and stage shows with 'Hello Possums' for longer than most of us can remember - after all 'she' started her show business career back in the 1950's and has been poking fun at us ever since.

OK back to the business at hand - Possums. Nocturnal they can be heard scampering around older houses and particularly those surrounded by trees. They eat almost anything that grows - fruit is their favourite, but they'll also 'knock off' (that's Aussie slang for steal) flowers, seedlings and vegetables.

Our own garden in suburban Melbourne seems to be inundated with possums - the common bushtail photographed - and almost every night we can hear them stomping on our roof. About the size of a domestic cat, they can pack a punch with their rapier like claws and healthy teeth. Their growl can be heard and for those not used to the noise, it can sound like a much larger animal.

The possums are a protected species and cannot be baited or killed.

Visitors to Melbourne wishing to see possums should head to the Fitzroy Gardens in East Melbourne at night.

The following web site may assist you if you are experiencing a 'possum problem': http://www.nana.asn.au/n2-possum.htm

Malvern

by iandsmith

Fancy a bit of shopping ladies? Like the load in your wallet to be lessened gents? Have I got a place for you. This unpretentious looking tarted-up suburb in the City of Stonnington is the centre of all that is class in Melbourne. Sure, there are many other suburbs with a degree of haute couture, but if you're looking for art and fashion, Malvern is a place to be seen.
The almost bland uniformly two-storey shopping precinct hides a plethora of good taste in fashion and art, liberally sprinkled with haute cuisine for when you're tired of shopping or want to discuss your latest purchase. Here you can start at Zampatti and work your way up the alphabet in your choice of clothing or wander into the art galleries of those with unpronouncable names such as Iaon Nemtoi and his exotic blown glass.

Chinese church

by l_joo

Peoples of China went to church? No I don't think so, peoples of China were communist members mostly, they have been Karl Marxed and Maoed. I think this Chinese church is Melbourners owned but Chinese immigrants of early years or maybe some other possibilities, church goers mostly were Christianed, believers of Christianity's God, they don't believe other religion's God, but I don't know.

Melbourne is just like _____

by grkboiler

When you are in a foreign city, it is human nature to try to find similarities with your own home because it makes you feel more comfortable in that new city.

I was with a group of people one night, mixed with Aussies and Americans. When asked how they liked Melbourne, one of the Americans said "Its great - Melbourne is just like an American city." I heard this answer many times while I was there.

Wrong answer. Nearly every time an American would say this, the Australian would rightfully get defensive and they would usually say something very similar:
"Melbourne is NOTHING like America - we don't have your levels of crime and poverty and we have better morals. We don't want to our city to be anything like yours." Criticism of Jerry Springer would usually follow, which was always very funny.

Melbourne is a unique city and its people have every reason to be very proud of it. It does not take long to understand this. If you are American, as innocent as you may think you sound, it is not a complement to say "Melbourne is just like an American city".

Australian Open

by Marpessa

Throughout the year there are four grand slams for tennis: Wimbledon, US Open, French Open and the Australian Open.

Every January Melbourne becomes even more alive than usual when the Open starts up - attracting the best tennis players in the world.

This year Roger Federer won his third Australian Open title (without dropping a set) against Fernando Gonzalez (who was on fire all the way up to the final). Serena Williams beat Maria Sharapova in the womens final.

I haven't actually been to the Rod Laver Arena - where the main matches are held - during the tennis, but I have been there for other things, and it is a great arena to go to.

I would recommend getting tickets as early as you can - not that there are any bad seats - not really, just that some matches can sell out quite quickly (the arena has a seating capacity of 14,820).

But if you do miss out on tickets, they have the games showing on big screens outside the arena, and at Federation Square (and a few pubs too I would imagine).

Make sure to get into the spirit of things and get dressed in your countries colours. At the open you will always find: Swedish vikings, americans in their flags and top hats, flags of many other nations, and of course - the green and gold! Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oi! Oi! Oi!

Also - in the second photo is 'Champions Lane' - outside the Rod Laver Arena (headed towards the city) is photos of every man and woman to win the Australian Open since 1988. Well - the Open is on when it is hottest in Australia, so make sure you have a hat, sunnies and sunscreen.
