My wife & I plan to visit Melbourne from 17-23 Nov. Below is our draft plan. Appreciate comments and suggestions.
17/11 Sun, touch down at MEL airport at 8:55 am after an 8 hours overnight flight.
Try to check in hotel at Travelodge Southbank in the morning if possible or just leave the luggage with the reception.
Visit Federation Square to get some free maps & info.
After lunch, join the 3 hours I'm free MEL City Walk at 2:30pm.
Then explore Southbank area.
18/11 Mon Join the Great Ocean Road Day Tour by ATWAD.
19/11 Tue Join the Phillip Island Day Tour by Bunyip Tours
20/11 Wed Join the Puffing Blly Healesville Sanctuary Tour by AATKings
21/11 Thur Join the Mornington Peninsular Ultimate Tour by Bunyi Tours
22/11 Fri Visit MEL Aquarium & Eureka Skydeck 88 with the FREE pass by Bunyi Tours.
Then explore MEL city by FREE tourist trams.
23/11 Sat Check out from Hotel. We have 2 choices: we can fly out of MEL either at 3:30pm, which will give us half a day in MEL to explore or fly out at 00:45 am on 24/11 Sun, which will give us an extra full day in MEL. Which choice do you think is better?
Some other questions:
Are we taking too many day tours? Are they similar and will we be seeing almost the same wildlife animals on these tours? (although we are nature & animal lovers!)
Is it safe to walk around MEL City at night?
Any interesting things worth doing at MEL after 6pm?
Thank you.Edited: 27 August 2013, 12:21
