Are maps available at the Tullamarine Airport?

Re: Maps

by dustmon

Do you need a map of the airport itself? They can be seen at www.melbourneairport.com/au
Maps of the surrounding country are available at shops inside the airport.

There are city maps, free guide books etc available at the airport.

All major Australian airports have an area where city maps, travel brochures, shuttle services, accommodation etc are available free to visitors. It is usually located near the baggage collection / exit.

The largest visitor info centre at Melb Airport is on the arrivals level (ground floor) in the International Terminal (there are 4 terminals, 3 share the same building - Tiger Airlines occupies a small and seperate terminal)

Take the free tram ride around the CBD. This is the best value in town. You get to see Melbourne, literally. The view from atop the Rialto Building which is the tallest building in Melbourne. You can see the Yarra River and the sprawling city below and Phillip Bay.

Living In Melbourne

by keeweechic

I first moved to Melbourne from New Zealand 16 years ago and settled into the lifestyle very quickly. After a few years living there I moved to Singapore for a while, only to return to Melbourne and live there another few years. There is so much to do, the range of arts and cultural activities are huge, there is always something going on in and around the city. I cannot even begin to stress the fabulous restaurants that you can find in Melbourne. There are also the wineries scattered around Victoria to visit and sample.

The only thing not going for it is the famous Melbourne weather. You can easily have 4 seasons in one day. It can get really cold in winter (although not snow) and go to the extreme in Summer when the wind blows down from the dessert. Within half an hour the temperature can drop 10C or more. I cannot possibly cover all the wonderful things there are to do around Melbourne and as day trips from Melbourne, although goodness knows I tried.

Near St. Kilda Road is the massive Shrine of Remembrance built as a memorial for World War I veterans. The memories of Gallipoli is still fresh in the minds of Australians. They take ANZAC Day (April 25) seriously. The memorial is on a hill where the view is somewhat scenic.

Australian Football - Melbourne's Game

by grkboiler

Australian Football, or "footy", was invented in 1853. It is a fast-paced, physical, and exciting sport and easily the most popular sport in Melbourne and all of Victoria. It may be confusing to first-timers, looking like "kill the man with the ball", but it is easy to catch on to the rules and understand the game and the passion felt by its fans. And to answer your question, no, the players do not wear pads.

The Victorian Football League (VFL) was formed in 1896 with 8 teams. By 1925, there were 12 teams, all located in Victoria, which remained unchanged until the 1980's, when the league began expanding and some of the original teams moved out of Victoria. The league is now called the Australian Football League (AFL), although it is still considered a Victorian game. There are now 16 teams that form the AFL, 10 of which call Victoria home.

With AFL venues MCG, Telstra Dome, and Optus Oval, you will easily find a match on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday in Melbourne between late March and late August. The championship rounds are played in September, with the Grand Final being held at the MCG in late September.

A chance to see this unique game should not be missed if you are in Melbourne during the season. It is easy to get a ticket at the gate of the MCG or Telstra. If I had one chance to watch an AFL match while in Melbourne, I would choose the MCG.
