credit card / cash?

by tracyskf

Hi - this might be a very basic question. I would just like to check if credit card acceptable widely at attractions like Zoo, Acquarium etc as well as the supermarkets?

Thanks!

Re: credit card / cash?

by wise23girl

As long as your credit cards are well recognized such as Visa or Mastercard or carry the acceptable insignia.
Some places will not let you charge very small amounts..say under $A5.
Some will let you draw cash on your card as well.
It is wise to carry some cash though just in case.

Re: credit card / cash?

I cannot imagine that a shop or zoo or whatever place will let you draw cash with your credit card if you do not pay the fee. Normally the shop pays the fee for credit card purchases, so they would be charged for you getting cash. As said, I cannot imagine that they would do this. At least they do not do this in New Zealand, and I have never tried in other countries because of the policy behind it.

It is different with eftpos cards issued by banks of the respective country, in this case Australia.

Re: credit card / cash?

by wise23girl

You are correct Sissi...it is only the efptos for cash and yes a card for these transactions are issued in the said country by ones own bank only after the 100 point check etc.

I was a bit careless there.

Re: credit card / cash?

by chinamonty

Most places take cards for reasonable amounts.
If using an Eftpos point of sale machine in Melbourne then hold it up so the keypad is vertical or even tilting towards you when you put your PIN in. There are scams around using cameras and this makes it much harder and nearly impossible for them to photo your PIN input. You could also just shield the keypad with your other hand or wallet if this is easier.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

Melbourne's Spire - Victorian Arts Centre

by ATXtraveler

If you see a picture of Melbourne, one of the most distinguishing landmarks is the large spire that resides on the southside of the Yarra River. Standing at about 115 metres high, it is one of the tallest spires in the city, but definitely the most distinguished, as the Arts Centre does light it up using a laser lighting system. It is far more exciting to view it at night, however my digital camera is not quite up to par enough to take a decent picture of it for you.

If you are interested in viewing one of the theatre productions, you can check out the Melbourne Theatre Company website on the link below to get a schedule of productions.

Carlton's precinct

by paoseo

One of the Precincts is Carlton where I spent a lot of time.
In the surroundings there are the Carlton Gardens,one of Australia’s most important classical structures and the Royal Exhibition Building. Completed in 1879 for the International Exhibition of 1880, it also played host to the opening of Australia’s first Commonwealth Parliament in 1901. Both the Carlton Gardens and Royal Exhibition Building were World Heritage listed in 2004.
Across the courtyard, and reflecting the historic Exhibition Building in its enormous glass frontage, is the ultra-modern Melbourne Museum. This innovative and award-winning museum is the home of champion race horse Phar Lap and many fascinating examples of Australian culture and heritage.
To Its boundaries are roughly Elizabeth Street to the West, Princes Street to the North, Victoria Street to the south, and Nicholson Street to the East.
Just as info: 1)In Lincoln Square is situated The Bali Memorial, which commemorates the victims of the 2002 Bali bombings. It was officially opened on 12 October 2005, the third anniversary of the disaster that killed 202 innocent people, including 99 Australians.
2) The northern part of Argyle Square, adjacent to Lygon Street, has been redeveloped into an Italian piazza, known as Piazza Italia, in a joint project between the City of Melbourne and its twin city, Milan. A giant sundial is the main feature of the piazza.
3) Carlton is also home to the famous Dracula Nightclub, which is on the corner of Cardigan Street and Victoria Street.
Since the Precinct is not exactly in the centre of Melbourne, to get here there are many tram routes, running along Swanston street and terminating at Melbourne University. The no. 8 and no. 1 trams continues through Carlton North and beyond via Lygon Street.
Buses serve Carlton via Lygon, Elgin, and Rathdowne Streets.
Honestly I walked many and many times from here directly to the Centre, it doesn't take so much! Even if I went there during australian winter, I was lucky to have some warm days during which my friend VT's Aussie75 and I stopped to hve a coffee on some of little Bars along Lygon Street, that is the historic heartland of Melbourne’s Italian community and the place where the city’s famous café culture was born. It was here in the 1950s that one of the street’s Italian-owned cafés imported Melbourne’s first espresso machine!
Since my friend had to work I often could experience Carlton like one of the locals. I often lost myself in the Readings bookstore next to the Nova Cinema.

Bicycles

by l_joo

Bicycles are everywhere on streets of Melbourne, I am very sure this has to be placed under general tip. Peoples of Melbourne need to wear bicycle-helmet while riding, lock it at lamp post or steel bars when parked. In Malaysia the climate was hot throughout the year, cycling is not a choice, nobody wants cycling, people rather sit inside air-con room and air-con car, only kids cycle at 6pm.

Here in Victoria you often...

by utttz

Here in Victoria you often have to sleep with some nice animals.... They're so big that you can clearly see the 'ugly face' they have! Try to tell to anyone you had a guest:
'oh, in queensland you can find some as big as a dish! anyway there's no danger, that kind of spider wouldn't bite you.... a lot of people keeps them in their houses just because they kill any other annoying insect.... not me... but a lot people does!'

Aerial Pingpong?

by alisonr

If you are a sports fan and you are in Melbourne from about April to September, you should see an Australian Rules Football match at either the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) or Colonial Stadium.
This game is played no where else in the world, it is totally unique to Australia. If you can, go with a local so you can get an explaination as to what the hell they are doing, as some aspects of this game are like no other.
