Re: jetbus melbourne

by Kakapo2

This has just been discussed in a thread the day before yesterday. Please check out the Melbourne Forum. The bus BTW is called Skybus.

Re: jetbus melbourne

by sirgaw

Actually there is a company called Jet Bus and they operate in both Melbourne and Sydney - http://jetbus.com.au/melbourne/ - and they are a different carrier to Skybus.

Without any comment from me, here is a link to a Tripadvisor posting on the subject.

Green graffitiable trash bin

by l_joo

Green graffitiable trash bin is one of my photo collection of Melbourne, tour operators may not bring tourists to see dust bin in graffiti, but now you are lucky, you have come to VT, we don't mind spend some additional time to introduce a little something less seen, so we proudly present a Green graffitiable trash bin. I believe this is a very good work by native Melbourner street artists, it needs your attention, feel free to enlarge it and make sure you store it well inside your harddisk for study and show to friends, etc.

Melbourne: Architectural Vernacular Pt 1

by Intrepidduck

Melbourne has a rich and many varied architectural legacy for a city established only 170 years ago. After the arrival of Batman - that's John Batman. The first European structures were made from bark and earth over a tea tree framework. However basalt rock - fashioned into bluestone became the building material of choice for the early settlement's substancial buildings. The importation of prefabricated houses was also incorperated, which includes the still standing Governor Latrobe's Cottage. However it was with the most enduring buildings of the colonial period where bluestone was used. The oldest existing being the c1842 St James Anglican Church on King Street, West Melbourne, it actually in it's second location from where it was removed from the once Batman's Hill. Interestingly Batman's Hill was also removed in excavations for the former Spencer Street Railway Station.

Australian Rules

by Flying.Scotsman

Melbourne is a mecca for spectator sports. The skyline appears crowded with various stadiums. Our son took us to an Australian Rules Football match. When we've told friends this, the most common answer is that it's a funny name as there appear to be no rules! Actually there are so many rules that it just appears there are no rules. Here is a quick guide to what happens.
There are up to about 47 players, officials and runners on the pitch (which is a cricket oval). A player can run with the ball but has to bounce it every so many yards. He can pass the ball by punching it. If he kicks the ball and one of his team mates directly catches it, he can run with it, or he can kick it (given time by the officials to so). If he kicks it between the inner goal posts they get 5 points and one point for getting it between the inner and outer goalposts. On occasion there are runners who go on to the field to take messages to the players from the coaches. If you are a fan and find that this is a load of rubbish, don't tell me I'm wrong, because nobody will be able to tell anyway!

All in all a vey enjoyable way to spend an afternon among a mainly civilized crowd in a comfortable modern stadium. Tickets can be purchased online. You may notice one of the categories I included this under was "Romantic Holidays and Honeymoons". We once talked with a man from Malta who had just come back from his honeymoon in the UK. He and his wife had been to London, Glasgow, Manchester and Liverpool - doing a tour of football grounds. So there may be another couple doing the same in Australia!

Williamstown, in Melbourne's western suburbs

by Kate-Me

In the past, Williamstown was almost a forgotten suburb - it was old and a bit run down, but in the last few years it's really been 'done up' and is now really worth a visit.

Besides these great views of the city from the other side of the bay (before you cross the Westgate Bridge into the city) there are nice parks right beside the docks, directly across the road there are trendy pubs and wine bars, cafes, coffee houses and interesting shops to tempt you into staying a while.
