4 Tips for a Vacation in Melbourne, Australia

Start your trip

Posted on 09/02/2019

Is it possible for an entire city to be a giant bar and hub of live music? Yep. Australia certainly is. Locals and foreigners alike call it the ‘European enclave’, and with good reason. Melbourne boasts an impressive number of bars lodged into the city’s narrow lanes, so you can expect to see perpetually large crowds of trendy folk.

Melbourne is easily one of Geauxing Places Travel’s favorite places to send its customers. The city’s culture is rich, the activities are fun, the art is unique, the food is exotic and the live music is always a blast.

With all these, vacationers don’t really need many reasons to make Australia their holiday destination, so they reach out to us to make it happen. We’re a full-service travel agency in Denham Springs, Louisiana, and today, we’re giving out 4 tips that will help you make the most of your time in Melbourne.

The bus system in Melbourne almost seems tailor-suited to what vacationers might want. We say this because its routes will have you traveling between all the popular and main shopping centers, attractions and schools. You should know that there are different zones you’ll be traveling to and you’ll need what’s called a ‘myki’ card, or its accompanying mobile app, to be able to move around in the buses.

If you’re going to spend at least a week or more in Melbourne, we advise you to get a phone package from Telstra, the telephone company. These packages have excellent coverage over the whole country.

  • Tours are Better When Booked as aPackage
  • Despite the large wealth of fun activities Melbourne has, you won’t enjoy them as well as you should if you don’t approach them the right way. For example, when booking tours, do so via a tour agency or hostel because it’s considerably more convenient that way.

  • Walking Tours Are Great Too
  • Riding the bus is a good idea but we won’t advise you to ride it everywhere; at least, not all the time. Substitute the bus for a walking tour once in a while. Such tours are a great way to get some exercise, and you also become more oriented with the city. Of course, you can expect to learn more about its history too, so walking tours kill several birds with one stone.
