Accommodation Melbourne CBD

by stelenkids

I'm surprising my 8 yr old daughter and taking her to see Mamma Mia at Her Majesty's Theatre on Exhibition Street. We need two nights accommodation 16-18 March and I've shortlisted 4 properties hotels due to their location, pool and price range. They are Swanston Grand Mercure, Mantra on Russell, Mantra on the Park and Rydges (Exhibition Street). I've checked out lots of reviews but still can't decide. Has anyone stayed at these properties and can help? Cheers

We have stayed at Rydges (Exhibition St)a few times, and enjoyed the hotel. The location is handy, service is good and rooms are nice.
Mantra is a good choice too- more family oriented.
You can't really go wrong with either.

I've stayed at Swanston Grand Mercure aka Mercure Welcome depending on which entrance you use, twice. I stayed there last weekend in fact and it was great value for money. (See my tips on my Melbourne page). They seem to have special deals from time to time. We got a really cheap deal. We booked through wotif.com. The hotel is really well located across the road from David Jones.

I also stayed at the Mercure once. Room was ok, but I changed rooms because the aircondition nearly blew me out of the bed, and it could not be stopped. Was much better in the other room.

I had chosen the hotel because I got a special deal, and for the location. I love Swanston Street, it is so handy, so easy to walk to so many places of interest, hop on the tramway, and Swanston Street is very lively late at night without being noisy.

P.S.

by Kakapo2

Having said this, just let me add that if you stay in a room facing Swanston Street you need very good earplugs because the tramway rattles along. I had a room to the back of the hotel, no view but quiet.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

Go to the Grampians, and the...

by cutestmidget

Go to the Grampians, and the Great Ocean Road. Try surfing in Torquay, and the tranquility of Wilson's Promontory... there are millions of things to do... but the important thing to do is not to try to cram too much into little time. Choose a few things, and make sure you do them properly... that way you'll be able to really appreciate what you do see... The countryside... the green sloping hills in Winter, with lambs bouncing around dam edges... the thunderheads billowing over the enormous horizon in summer, skinnydipping in the freshwater creeks where no one can see you... clear nights where there are no lights from cities, towns or farmhouses, and all you can see are the stars... My favourite part of Australia, is the farm that I grew up on. The differences in the countryside with the season changes are phenomenal, and I love it whatever state it is in... The photo shows how dry it gets in summer (very dangerous for bushfires), but in the winter, this exact place is lush, and filled with the deepest varieties of green...

St.Kilda

by paoseo

St Kilda is one of inner city suburbs of Melbourne and in recent years, it has begun to shake off a seamy reputation and is home to many of Melbourne's famous visitor attractions including Luna Park, the Esplanade Hotel, Acland Street, its many theatres and St Kilda Beach. St Kilda is home to many of the city of Melbourne's big events.
Despite migrationary trends, St Kilda retains a large Jewish population. The legacy of Jewish people in the area is evidenced in the large number of synagogues in the area and the Jewish Museum of Australia, the only one of its kind in the country, which is located in Alma Street.
St Kilda is also home to many major annual events. The largest of these is the St Kilda Festival, which has grown over recent years. St Kilda also hosts Midsumma, a gay Pride March. St Kilda is home to the many venues of the Melbourne Underground Film Festival. Each year, the Community Cup Festival celebrates grassroots Australian rules football and raises money for local charities. Other local events include the St Kilda Film Festival and St Kilda Writers Festival.
The St Kilda Pier is another local landmark and major tourist attraction. The pier is terminated by the St Kilda Pavilion, an eccentric Edwardian building in the mould of English pier pavilions which is considered of high cultural importance to Melburnians. It was recently reconstructed and listed on the Victorian Heritage Register after burning down. The pier has a long breakwater which shelters St Kilda Harbour and hosts a little penguin colony. The pier is also the starting point for a ferry which runs between St Kilda and Williamstown.
St Kilda Beach is a beach with gentle bay waves popular with swimmers and sunbathers during the summer months. The beach is currently subject to a foreshore redevelopment scheme aimed at improving the pedestrian experience.
Tram routes 96 from Bourke Street, tram 112 from Collins Street and tram 16 from Swanston Street. At about 25 minutes from the city. I loved so much stroll around along Acland Street visiting the second-hand, trying how many cake shops I could. I uploaded a pic found in Internet because it represents perfectly the heaven (or hell)I found in waliking along this read....lots and lots of shops full of cakes!!!AAARGH.
I went to St.Kilda twice.
Once with my friend and her boyfriend in a very windy day and I loved so much walking on the Pier forcing the windy ...it was so great!
The other time the weather was sunny and I apprecited the beach and its sand...

Garbage machine

by l_joo

Garbage machine I called it, don't know what name it was, looks like a garbage collecting vehicle. I never saw anything like this, there's nothing like this in where I live, this one is obviously much better looking, aesthetical maybe or cool, whatever it is, I think this machine is worth a look.

Weather in the city

by RedShoes

The climate in Melbourne can be variable throughout the year, and you might need a jacket even if it’s supposed to be warm but for the most part the seasons are as follows:
(Dec-Feb) Pretty warm to very hot so you'll need light clothes. Cotton is an ideal material for warm weather.
(Mar-May) This is fall so it's pretty mild. You might want a jacket to put on if you get chilly.
(Jun-Aug)Winter is usually very damp, so cotton can be one of the worst materials to wear as it retains moisture well. Dress warm
(Sept-Nov)This is a cool period so you should bring a warm jacket.

Melbourne is colder than most of Australia and it rains a lot more than in Sydney. Also, the seasons are opposite in the southern hemisphere, so winter in Europe and the States is summer in Australia. There are many beautiful places to photograph around the area. Some older buildings look great in black and white film.

Centre Place - Coffee Central

by fishandchips

Centre Place is one of the best coffee spots in Melbourne and is complete with a wide range of food options. Centre Place becomes Centre Way at its northern end.

There are a couple of really interesting options here. Hell's Kitchen is a dim sort of spot but has a view over the street below as its on the first floor. The small Jungle Juice Bar is good for a spot of soup and comes highly recommended from local friends.
