Supplements to bring in to Melbourne Airport

by wonglaipeng

I will be travelling from Malaysia to Melbourne this May for 2 weeks holidays. Can I bring in my own supplements to Australia such as vitamin C tablets, Ginkgo Bilova tablets, cod liver oil in capsules, multivitamins in capsules and evening primrose oil in capsules for the purpose of my own daily intake only? I have read the rules and regulations on what not to bring in to Australia but it did not say anything on supplements. Just want to be sure about this. Can anyone advise me on this?

Yes you can take this provided it is only for your consumption as you mentioned.please declare these in the forms that will be given to you.I did carry a few supplements for personal use when i travelled there just a few months back.
hope this helps,

Those supplements should be allowed into Australia provided they are declared on customs form. In any case- they are also freely available to buy in Australia, and very cheap here.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

best city for sport

by ombre

<FONT COLOR=RED<For anyone wishing to travel to Melbourne from overseas and is wondering what it has to offer I can assure you there is plenty to see and do.Melbourne has many attractions such as wonder ful parks and gardens to world renouned sporting complexes such as the M.C.G(melbourne cricket ground) there is also a large mixture of bars ,clubs restaurants and shopping area's such as the Queen Victoria market to the trendy strips such as chapel street .the Melbourne casino is said to be one of the lagest single casino's in the world.opening in 1998 at a cost of 1 billion dollars to set up.Melbourne also has some really cool places that for some reason are not easy to find it is almost like there setting a challenge for you to find them and if you can they will show you what you had been missing. so hope fully i can give you some basic info on this page about my city. My fondest memory of melbourne would probably be watching our National sport of australian rules football at the M.C.G at finals time in september in front of crowds of 90,000 plus. you really feel Australian because the game is totally Australian.Apart from that it would be the summer months when melbourne really comes to life with festivals, sporting events and the the almost national past time of a barbie with your mates barbie meaning B.B.Q.This photo is at the M.C.G when cameroon played chilli in the semi final of the soccer in the Olympic games .Soccer was the only sport were some games were played outside sydney.considering no aussie team was playing and soccer is not over popular in australia a crowd of 65,000 was a great turn out on such a terrible rainy night

I have noticed alot of members saying things about the queen victoria market and with good reason.
The vic market as us locals call it has a huge range of meats ,cheeses ,seafood and fresh vegetables.
Also there are a huge amount of clothing stores which are most busy on sundays.
I used to live right across the rd from here and call tell you its a shopping delight.
shortly I will get around to giving real info on this melbourne icon.

In my experience there seems...

by jrr3

In my experience there seems to be a snobby element to Melbourne people. Thinking that they are better than others, and very materialistic. It all seems to be a show. All people wear is black, that is those who live there obviously not the tourists. And my biggest gripe is that everybody wears sunglasses even though it may be overcast and raining. Its pathetic

AFL Grand Final @ the "G"

by aussiedoug

If you come to Melbourne between late March & late September you really have to come see a "footy" game at the "G" - the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Yeah I know it says "Cricket" Ground not "Footy" Ground, but cricket is for Summer & footy is for Autumn through Winter.

And, "footy" in this case refers to Australian Rules football not Soccer (what many refer to as the only football) or Rugby League or Rugby Union in the northern states.

I've been to 3 AFL footy games at the "G" this year & frankly the first one was pretty ordinary for two reasons.

Firstly my team, the Sydney Swans lost to the Richmond Tigers & secondly the atmosphere at the ground was pretty ordinary with a smallish crowd not even half filling what is an 80 000 (plus) capacity ground. That was at the start of July.

Late August I attended the Swans v Hawthorn Hawks match which we not only one, but had a bigger crowd with a lot better atmosphere.

BUT!!!! The biggie was the last weekend in September when my team the Sydney Swans played the West Coast Eagles (from Perth) in the AFL Grand Final & after a dour, but incredibly exciting struggle over the 4 quarters, the Swannies got up by a mere 4 points! All this as part of a crowd of a bit over 90 000 people, many of whom were wearing the Red & White of the Sydney/South Melbourne Swans! Now, if you find that you'll be in Melbourne for the last weekend in September then you will have to get yourself some tickets organised WELL IN ADVANCE! And the master of understatement is striking once again. Yes I mean months in advance & there are packages available from travel agents. I would suggest having a look at www.afl.com.au & having a look at their AFL Travel link.

Now if you are going to be here at another time of the footy season I suggest you check with the locals & see what games are worthwhile going to see at either the MCG or the Telstra Dome. The Swans play the Essondon Bombers in the opening round of the 2006 season at the Telstra Dome on the Saturday night of April 1.

So get some colours to support a team. If it's cool a scarf or if it's hot & sunny a cap & get out and do some cheering!

by MVMT

Have dinner at The Colonial Tramcar Restaurant
Clarendon St (Cnr Normanby Rd), South Melbourne 3205
ph.(03) 9696-4000
fx.(03) 9696-3787
lunch $65; early dinner $55; dinner Sun-Thurs $80 five courses, $55 three courses; Fri-Sat $90 five courses, $55 three courses.

I was greeted warmly by the crew of three, all of whom were knowledgeable, efficient and cheerful without being overbearing.

The brightly lit, burgundy-coloured exterior of these 1927 trams belies the luxurious Victorian interior with its plush velvet buttoned seating, heavily ruffled curtains and dark woodwork.

As the tram shuttles up Spencer Street for the first leg of its journey, a glass of Hardy Reserve Brut is poured... Heading towards South Yarra, warm rolls arrive, then entrees of smoked salmon and kangaroo fillets.

By this stage, all diners are feeling relaxed and talkative and some happily join in with other's conversation. I learn why the wine glasses never topple over - stabilisers have been fitted under the tram, the dining tables are slightly padded and a diligent driver ensures a smooth ride.
I had almost lost track of time when we got to St Kilda.
A 10-minute break in South Melbourne allows diners to stretch their legs. The coffee and tea, poured from elegant silver pots, are fine and served with chocolates...yummy!!
Enjoy the ride!!!
