Accomodation near Bulleen Victoria

by thatsgold

Hi Everyone
We are a few mums looking for accomodation .
We are coming to watch our sons compete in a soccer tournament at Bulleen.
As we are flying in and will not have cars to get around, I was hoping someone may be able to suggest some motels to stay at that are close to transport for us to get to Bullen on Sat and Sun,17th,18th April.

Maybe somewhere close to a train station that will link up with a bus to Bulleen perhaps or any other suggestions.
Would be extremely grateful for any suggestions,am desperate to get it all sorted.
Many Thanks for your time!
Tracey

There is no train line to Bulleen, closest train station would be Heidelberg, I am assuming the soccer tournament is in Bulleen Road? You could try Quest apparments in Kew as they are close to the following bus link which will take you to Bulleen Road, they are close to shops/restaurants and short walk to the bus stop.

I assume the soccer tournament is at one of the Grammar schools in Bulleen.If so be advised that the bus does not go past the school gates but turns off Bulleen Rd before, leaving you a bit of a walk. Check out google earth. I agree with that the Quest apartments are probably your best option. Good luck, and have a great time.

Agree with other posters, but here's a few more places you can try and a lot closer -
Shoppingtown Hotel/Motel
Address: 13-19 Williamsons Rd,
Doncaster VIC 3108
Price: Under $100 Double Room/Night
10 apartments
Phone: (03) 9848 6811

Web http://www.hotelshoppingtown.com.au/ - however it does not list accomodation but I do know they have it (I worked there many, many years ago). Hotel is opposite Doncaster Shoppingtown (same municipality as Bulleen) where there is a bus interchange where you can take the Heidelberg Bus. Get off at Bulleen road, where I believe there is a bus that goes Kew/Heidelberg, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

Quest also have a property in Doncaster - http://www.questondoncaster.com.au/

There's also http://www.beaumonde.com.au/ which is in Doncaster Road, East Doncaster, but that would involve several changes of buses to get to Bulleen. Also Beaumonde is quite expensive.

Another option would be stay in one of many places in the city and commute to Bulleen on both days, but be warned that public transport is not very frequent on weekends.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

by SANDYGR

Actually I am in Bendigo which is about 1 1/2 hrs north of Melbourne. Great spot for a couple of days if you're visiting Melbourne. Bendigo has retained a lot of it's gold mining history and heritage buildings. Underground mine tours are a favourite, the talking tram and restaurant trams and lots of great architecture. Bendigo also has strong links to China, being a major settling place for chinese miners in the early 1800's. Great chinese gardens and museums to wander through.

by Krystynn

take a river cruise on the YARRA RIVER. Just head straight to SOUTHGATE (currently, the most happening place!) and there, you can join one of the many river cruises where you'd be brought to see the many lovely landmarks and monuments in Melbourne. So, just sit back and... relax!

Melbourne Citizens Are Proud of their Parks

This is only one of the many gardens and parks in Melbourne. Melbourne is a tram city but it is even more a walking city. Residents walk everywhere and especially along the Yarra River that runs through central Melbourne.

Boxing Day Test

by Orchid

Another Melbourne institution, the Boxing Day test is a leisurely day, watching the flannelled fools and resting up after the eating and drinking and socialising that is Xmas Day.
many folk go along every year, the cricket itself often secondary to catching up on old mates and ejoying the traditional passtimes of teasing the security goonsquads, tossing beachballs around at dull spots and baiting the poms when they have come to lose yet again Bring along an esky full of sandwiches made from yesterday's leftover Xmas turkey, the remainders of auntie Maude's wonderful christmas sponge, a thermos flask of tea in case it is cold.

Sadly, you have to shell out vast sums of money for warm beer in plastic cups if you'd like some alcoholic beverages - not allowed to BYO.

Beach ball tossers should be aware that they should come with a large supply. Security personnel are a bit on the dim side, and have the sence of humour of your old high school maths teacher, but eventually they WILL succeed in arresting the offending item, and it's definitely capital punishment for said beach ball - administered with a sharp implement!

The best view in Melbourne for free

by kalsop

Most visitors to Melbourne go to the Rialto Towers for the best view of the city. But for a family of four, this costs around $35. The website for this attraction is: http://www.melbournedeck.com.au

You can get just as good a view (but only of the eastern side of the city and suburbs) for free if you go to Hotel Sofitel, which is located at towards the Spring Street end of Collins Street, and take the elevator to the 35th floor. Walk around the eastern side of the building where you will find men's and women's toilets. Both these bathrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows that look out on the eastern suburbs of Melbourne towards the Dandenongs, including the MCG and Melbourne Park. It makes for a great picture!

Hotel Sofitel: 25 Collins Street, Melbourne
