Travels

by HLE

Hi,

I am 21 years old and I will be travelling to Australia at the beginning of November and am going to be staying with a family member who lives in Merrigum. From what i understand, Merrigum is rather a small town and was wondering if anybody knows about public transport and anything that may be of any interest of visiting fairly close as I am a little nervous about being stuck out in the sticks whilst my uncle is at work etc?? Any help would be very much appreciated!

Public transport to Merrigum will be almost non existent, it will certainly not take you from Merrigum to places of interest such as the Barmah state forest, the Murray river or Mount Buffalo which would be of interest for bushwalking & sightseeing. I would not recommend bushwalking alone unless you are experienced as it is easy to get lost as most of the tracks are fairly sparsely marked.You will need a car to get around, visit Beechworth which is a lovely town with plenty to see & do for a day or too. I would talk to your uncle he probably has a good knowledge of the local area as to what to see & do.
hope you have a wonderful time in Australia

check out this site for v-line trains

it seems you have to get a bus to either Murchison east or Seymour then a train into Southern Cross Station in Melbourne (I clicked Flinders Street Station but they diverted me to Southern Cross)

the shortest journey takes about two hours

oh and once you are in Melbourne there is a free tram (a sort of brownish maroon shade, which circles the city and places of interest to get you orientated)

I hope you are going to get the opportunity to visit and/or stay in Melbourne before or after visiting your uncle as there is litttle, make that nothing for a 21 year old to do in Merrigum.

Without a car you will have very limited options, but you could spend the day in either Shepparton or Echuca. There is an infrequent bus service from Merrigum. The V-Line website suggested by Craic will give you details.

Re: Travels

Many thanks for all your replies. I will certainly find the v line trains very useful.

I shall be in Australia for around 7 months in total and am hoping to be visiting Melbourne, Sydney and all main sights within that time. I should find my feet pretty quickly with my Uncle being a local, just a bit nervous at the moment so trying to gather as much information as possible. Thanks again - i'm sure i will have a wonderful time! :)

Re: Travels

7 months eh - great! - just ask about anything you are not sure of - plenty of people on Vt to help you out

Re: Travels

Ditto. I'm a Melbourne girl so I can help you out there if needed. Heidi.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

City Ambassadors - what a brilliant idea!

by allikat

So there I am, all on my own, in the middle of Melbourne for the first time. Where to go, what to do, and how to get there? Fortunately for me, I stumbled across a couple of charming gentlement dressed all in red and ready to help me find the tram I needed. City Ambassadors are volunteers, ready to help the visitor to Melbourne. You will find these Ambassadors around the central areas of Melbourne, and they are ready to help you with directions, ideas - any general queries you might have. A brilliant idea!

Royal Botanical Gardens

by Sweetberry1

The Royal Botanic Gardens was established in 1846...
At the time of its foundation, the Gardens’ site was an uninspiring mixture of rocky outcrops and swampy marshland, but it was not long before the foundations were being laid for one of the great gardens of the world.

In 1857, the Gardens’ first full time Director, Ferdinand von Mueller was appointed. Mueller was to become one of the most acclaimed botanists of the 19th century, and was ultimately awarded Knighthoods by over 20 countries. Mueller established the Gardens’ scientific centre, The National Herbarium of Victoria, and amassed an extraordinary range of plants from every corner of the world. All my memories of Melbourne are great. There is always lots to do here, and you never run out of great places to see.
This used to be home, the place I grew up in, and I still feel it is one of the greatest cities to live in.

Not as good as the sydney...

by ombre

Not as good as the sydney aquarium ,the newer melbourne aquarium is set out alot different and so ,despite not being as big as Sydney it's still worth a visit.
its in my opion slighty over priced as most of these places are .
allow around 3 hours.

Buildings of interest

1. St....

by Juliet67

Buildings of interest

1. St. Patrick's Cathedral

A fine building in the English Gothic style, Melbournes Catholic Cathedral stands in East Melbourne near the top end of Collins Street.
A liberal use of flying buttresses, pinnacles and turrets contributes to the archtiectural richness of the building.

2. Queens College

Part of the Melbourne University, Carlton, commenced 1855. Two other universities, Monash and Latrobe have since been founded in Melbourne, and a fourth is in the planning stages.

3. Parliament House

Home of the Victorian Stadt Parliament, in Spring Street. For (maybe 40?) years the Australian Federal Parliament met in this building, until it moved to the new Parliament House in Canberra in 1927.

4. Latrobe Cottage

This was Victoria's first Government House. Originally situated in Jolimont, now part of Melbourne, it was moved to a site near the Shrine of Remembrance, close to the present Government House, and is a National Trust property.

First Tuesday in November

by alisonr

If you are there in November, go to the Melbourne Cup!! This is the biggest horse race on the Australian racing calendar and it is known as 'the race that stops a nation' becuase no matter where you are at 3.20pm (the time varies year to year) on the first Tuesday in November, you will be watching or listening to the Cup. 2001 was my first year, and I have been back every year since - experiencing it from a punter on the lawn with plastic chairs to the Carbine Marquee. In 2001 my mum and I were among 110,000 keen racegoers, a new record crowd. Please see my travelouge for lots of photos. Binoculars, hat (if you are a girl it is a MUST to have a groovy hat or facinator) suncream, umbrella, depending on the day.
