Healesville Sanctuary

by Susumarie

Is it possible/not too difficult to get to Healesville Sanctuary by public transportation?

Re: Healesville Sanctuary

by TexasDave

I was there about 10 years ago and we rented a car and toured throughout Victoria. I kind of doubt you could do it since it's about 45 mins drive from Melbourne and is very rural. But I can't give you a definitive answer. Maybe a local will have better info.

Here's a local to the rescue - LOL

I'm assuming your going to the sanctury from Melbourne city - take a Lilydale suburban train (its the end of the line, so you won't have to worry about which station to get off) from any of the loop stations - Flinders Street, Southern Cross, Flagstaff, Melbourne Central or Parliament. Then catch a McKenzie Bus from Lilydale station and that will get you to Healsville - some buses go on to sanctury, but check with driver as you may need to change buses in Healsville. Train to Lilydale is about an hour and the bus would be about 20 minutes - http://www.mckenzies.com.au/index.html Seems that the metcard ticket you buy for the train will also get you onto the bus.

Use this link for the trains and other public transport - http://www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au/

I'd almost suggest hiring a car for a day or 2 and stay in the Healsville area and also go to the wineries.

Enjoy

Perfect info, sirgaw.

I was at the Sanctuary last year and travelled by train from Flinders Street Station to Lilybank, then carried on by bus. It starts right at the railway station. I had quite a gap until the bus left but found a very nice café across the street. Otherwise really straight forward, no problem at all. And BTW The trip cost next to nothing.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

Culture + History = Melbourne

by Gwynneth

Since the Second World War, Victoria State, along with the rest of Australia, has had a steady flow of immigrants, mainly from Europe, but also from South Eastern Asia and the Middle East.

Many of the immigrant population do not speak English as their first language, so don't be surprised to spoken to in Greek, Slavic or Vietnamese.

These cultures, mixing with a society of mainly British and Aboriginal descent, have produced a cosmopolitan and egalitarian cultural climate. Melbourne is considered to be Australia's cultural capital, offering a wide range of music, opera, theatre performances and culinary expertise.

For these reasons Melbourne has a special part in my travel plans... this marvelous mix of cultures encourages the diversity in the retail sectors... you to will soon realise Melbourne is the shopping capital of Australia and for good reason!

Cruisin'

by iandsmith

I'd been on the Yarra before, but upstream, which is where the tourist's first trip usually is.
The second occasion I had more time and was a little more adventurous so I opted to head for Williamstown.
The trip there was truncated with a couple of unplanned stops and we managed to turn a 50 minute trip into nearly an hour. We actually repassed an opposition ferry three times!
The initial part of the cruise was through the city and out through the Docklands development, a much touted revision of the old Melbourne docks. There's on thing I like about Melbourne skyscrapers and that is their judicious use of glass. Depending on what time of day or night you are doing your viewing, you may see pure gold, deep blue, glistening brown or shining purple.
Another thing is that they mostly have distinctive shapes, unlike the boxes that tend to proliferate in other major cities.
All this was in evidence on the first part of the cruise (pics 4 & 5), as well as the container ship that are berthed slightly further downstream (pic 2).

Always get garlic sauce on a Souvlaki!!! Only really see Souvlakis in Greece and Melbourne (the other city of Greece!!) Did you know that there's more Greeks in Melbourne than in any other city in the world apart from Athens!!!! With them came Souvlaki, lamb or beek rapped up in peta bread with tomatos, onion, lettuce, sauce and anything else you may wish. Warning: Can self destruct in hands!!!!
