Melbourne Australian Travel Map

Full Interactive Melbourne Australian Travel Map

Melbourne is a very “European” style of Australian city. With its extensive system of trams (streetcars), good buses, and an excellent suburban railway system, it is a very easy place in which to get around using the public transport. Many of the inner city suburbs can be accessed by tram and it makes for a very interesting time of exploring using the system in the same fashion as the locals. Look at the Melbourne Australian Travel Map – the Yarra River cuts through the middle of Downtown.

The wide streets, boulevards and parks of the area surrounding the Downtown area provide a stark contrast to the many laneways, arcades and shopping nooks of the Central Business District. Melbourne is a very safe city, so don’t be afraid to poke around in the interesting corners to find the unexpected.

Getting to Melbourne City

Melbourne Airport – Tullamarine – is about 50 kms (35 mi) west of the city. In peak traffic it can take up to an hour to get there. If you are going to self drive the Great Ocean Road or the Grampians National Park, it is a good idea to pick up your car from Melbourne Airport since you are on one of the the main roads west.

Zoom out on the Melbourne Australian Travel Map and look for the Airport at Tullamarine Airport, north and west of Melbourne.  If you are not driving any further in the Melbourne area, drop your car at the airport, and take a shuttle or a cab into the City.

The area running from Flinders Street on the north side of the Yarra River through to Lonsdale Street is a maze of arcades, shops, coffee houses and restaurants.

Southbank and Docklands: Southbank is on the southern side of the Yarra River. The Southbank Promenade runs along the River from Flinders Bridge (where St Kilda Road crosses the Yarra) to the Crown Casino. The footbridge across the River joins Southbank to the Flinders Street Railway Station.

Queen Victoria Market: On the Melbourne Australian Travel Map, zoom in one click and follow Elizabeth Street north towards Victoria Street and look for the Queen Victoria Market on your left. It has been there over a hundred years – be sure to visit the fresh meat, seafood and poultry markets.
