Melbourne is considered the second largest city in the whole of Australia, though there is some debate on how close it is when compared to its big brother Sydney. The original settlers are believed to have landed in Australia back in the early 1800’s. In fact, you arrive there between any time during the last week of January, you are bound for festivities and crazy festivals and plenty fun and excitement for everyone. Australia day is a celebrated heritage that many Australians hold dear to their hearts and celebrate the occasion in frivolous style. There are old buildings still standing from back in the day, great beaches to relax in the sun and swim in the sea and when you are not out sightseeing, you can be out on the town and partying up a storm.
The first thing you need to think about is where you are going to stay. You can always to find out about Melbourne apartments accommodation and see if there is anything affordable under that category. You can try and book a 3 or 4 bedroom place that that is big enough for you and your family or you can book it out for your group of friends. Everyone can split the cost of the nightly rental, and it would make it so much cheaper for everyone sharing the place. If you are in the city centre then at least you can get around town by using the public transport systems that are in place. A taxi is usually the quickest if you don’t have traffic to worry about, but it can get expensive. If you decide to take the bus or train, you should look into a day pass that will allow you on and off any bus or train for the whole day. It works out a whole lot cheaper for you and you can travel as many times as you like in single day. That all depends entirely on the transport system you are using and you should check to see if they have that on offer before you go out and spend money hundreds of bus tickets and train tickets.
Always check on the local calendars to see what is happening in the city when you are there. You might be lucky enough to arrive during a music or film festival, and they often have comedy festivals where local stand up comedians so their things and have everyone in hysterics for the entire evening. There are plenty choices for you when you go there and all you need to do a little exploring to find what are there.
