I just have one note to add for you to be aware of. I think it’s important to mention that if you take Jetstar (the airline), they are going to nickel-and-dime you, and they are going to make sure they do. Every kilo you go over, (2.2 pounds) they are going to charge you for it. And they’re even going to weigh your carry-on at the airport – so what I would do if you’re looking to find the cheapest way to travel around Australia, definitely look at each carrier’s baggage policies. Be sure to google user anecdotes about how strict they actually are with them, because some airlines I’ve been on, they say they are really strict and then you get at the airport and they are lenient. But in this case, with Jetstar, they will make sure you pay every possible way. That basically made our fares cost just as much as a nicer airline. So it’s really important to know that and make sure to look that up when you’re doing your flight research.
Which airport you arrive in also plays a role. We flew into Avalon and we had to take basically a 24AUD one-hour bus ride to get into the city. There are multiple airports you can fly into, so make sure you look at that first and take all of that into consideration before buying your flights. Because you might think you’re getting a great deal and by the end you’re really not.
So this is just 15 things we recommend to do in Melbourne, as well as some useful tips. But this truly is a huge and fascinating city, so if you have more time, don’t worry – you won’t be bored.
