Frequently Asked Questions about Melbourne

Do trains run all night in Melbourne?

The trains in the city only run all night on the weekends, so you can stay out extra-late with your mates without worrying about getting stranded at Flinders St. Station. Some of the other major junctions include Richmond, South Yarra, and North Melbourne, but only Flinders St. Station is open after 1 a.m. on the weekends.

What is a myki pass?

Ah, good question, young padawan. A myki is a reusable public transportation card for trams, buses and trains that can be used in Melbourne and other regions in Victoria. You can buy passes that span your entire trip or for just a day or two.

What are the best travel hacks in Melbourne?

The weather here can change in the blink of an eye (seriously), so be prepared to experience a few seasons in one day. Pack everything from short-sleeved shirts and sunnies to scarves and a rain-ready jacket. And if you need to exchange some currency for your next stop overseas, you don't always have to use one of the big banks-sometimes the small exchange booths located throughout the city have better rates.

What are the biggest annual events in Melbourne?

Here's just a few to get you started... Check out the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival at the beginning of April to sip glasses of fine merlot alongside racks of grilled lamb. Like to bet, or just put on some fancy threads for the day? Head to Flemington Racecourse in early November for the iconic Melbourne Cup. And don't forget about the AFL Grand Final held the first Saturday of October-there's nothing like a day filled with footy!
