Climb the stairs competition

by jackt

There is a competition held every year(?) that involves climbing the stairs of the Rialto, Can some one please advise when this is to be held? What dates and information please.

by mgmarcus

From what I can see the last one was in 2005, 2006 was cancelled and no-one is advertising a 2008 version.

Here is an e-mail for the tower

Seems the original Rialto Run Up has died - the winner of the original run up got a trip to New York for a big run up there - Empire State Building I think.

There was a 2007 run up:
so by checking with this web site you may be able to get more info for 2008 and onwards as well as the link to the observation deck at Rialto from previous poster.

I happen to know a little bit about the Rialto Run Up from a contact - seems the race started in Collins Street and was a sprint to the doorway and up the 55 floors. There was quite a few elbows being used to secure better positions as the stair well is quite narrow and not always easy to pass others. Some of the runners were stepping on every 3rd step, but a winner from a few years ago was shorter and had to use every 2nd step.

Good luck with getting any further info.

It was not a regular event and I did not get very far with the research. In such cases I use to contact the Visitor Information, they are there for answering tourists' questions. Normally they are very good in Melbourne.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

by Audrey118

eat some sausage rolls, and some meatpies.

I love the sausage rolls in David Jones Food Glorious Food hall. It is in the basement, and just look out for it at the end. It may look plain but yum. I also love their meatpies,
it could be mushroom pie, steak pie, and sheperd pie (with potato topping) some
ketchup and sit on their small tables and chairs, and enjoy.

If you have room for some dessert, i especially like the frozen yoghurt, which is sold next to their liquor shop in DJ - also at the basement!!!

The "Notorious" Footscray

by eviltooth

So you have heard how dangerous Footscray is and that it is the drug hole of Melbourne where the Vietnamese gangs roam the streets. Truth is, this is also a place where normal people like you and me live. You'll probably have equal chance of getting mug/beaten up/abused/shot to death in the city, and I've been walking with my boyfriend from Western Hospital where he was doing an elective study to the train station at night without any problem for a month. Half an hour is not a short walk. One of the VT'er said that's because I'm Asian, I'm like one of them (thank you :)), that's why I haven't encounter any problem. What about my white Polish boyfriend who had to walk back to the hospital alone after sending me off? I don't understand where that logic came from. Asian, and therefore safer in Footscray, HA. Perhaps I'd pass on my immunity to my boyfriend. Yeah right.

Anyway, if you want to experience Melbourne's multiculturalism, go to Footscray in the day. Everything except a couple of restaurants are close at night, so no point. It's a different experience, but I won't eat in the restaurants. There was a food poisoning case resulting in death of a few people and dozens in hospital, awful. Don't remember the name of the restaurant though, doesn't matter, just don't eat in any restaurant (even though we did and came out alive, but then again someone might say that's because I'm Asian ;)). The bakery near the train station is safe, however. Love the custard bun.

Melbourne: Arts and Culture Pt 3

by Intrepidduck

Artists have always contributed to controversy - sometimes their doings have not even been intentional. In the late 1970s the Melbourne City Council installed a new piece of steel sculpture titled Vault (aka Yellow Peril) on the completed City Square. To many people in conservative and influencial circles this work of art was an out rage. It remained for a couple of years on site and then after so much huha was removed, placed in storage and at a later date relocated to the banks of the Yarra. Then in the late 1990s with the construction of the Crown Casino - also a monument of controversy - the so called Yellow Peril was in peril once more! Recently "Vault" has been hushed away to it's third site, away from the eyes of many. It rests I would say peacefully at last next to ACCA in Grant Street Sth Melbourne.

Australian Open

by malibu

A great tip for tennisfans: in the second week of the Australian Open you can just rock up to the Melbourne Park National Tennis Centre and buy a grounds pass for just $15. You won't be able to enter the Rod Laver Arena though, but I managed to see Martina Hingis and Monica Seles in action on one of the smaller courts.
Bring plenty of suncream and a hat!

Feed the parrots at Sherbrooke Forest

by stefano99

Just find Grant's picnic area, which is not too far from Ferntree Gully. Here you can buy a packet of birdseed with which to feed the Rosellas or Galahs.

This is a place that many tourists visit and the birds get well fed, so if you are after the photo with you covered in parrots get there early.
