Melbourne has so many different things to do and here’s just a selection of what I did get to do – contact details at the bottom of the post:
1. Chocoholic Tours – a company who delivers the best in chocolate tours and information. Designed to give even the sweetest tooth a chance to try new chocolates and pairings with wine2. Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium – see above photo. Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium is the place to go if you love all things ocean.
3. Melbourne Cricket Ground – you can do a tour and be able to stand on the hallowed turf of the “G” as it is locally known.

Getting to Melbourne: From Dubbo, getting to Melbourne is easy with Jetgo – they offer a service 3 days a week between Dubbo and Essendon return. Pricing is from $247 each way including taxes and charges. Book with Jetgo on 1300328000 or via http://www.jetgo.com/ using the search box on the top of the homepage.

Getting around Melbourne: It’s easy to get around Melbourne as they have quite a vast public transport system. The public transport network is cashless so you will need to get a myki before you travel – myki cards are easily obtainable at any manned railway station or where the myki logo is posted. It costs $6 to get and is valid for 4 years. Fares can vary on where you are in the network – example: it only cost me $2.90 to travel from Flinders Street Station to Watergardens Station on a weekday. Buses are, on average, $3.90 per trip and are capped at $7.80.
