How to Travel in Melbourne on a Budget

The Melbourne metropolis is located on the large natural bary known as Port Phillop, with the city centre positioned at the estuary of the Yarra River. Often referred to as the "cultural capital of Australia," Melbourne is the home of cultural institutions such as Australian film, television, rules football, the Australian impressionist art movement, dance styles, music and more. 

Taking a trip across the world to Australia can seem like a great adventure - and expense. Booking with an experienced agency like Aldershot Travel is the easiest way to ensure you save a few bucks.

And once you've arrived in Melbourne, there are plenty of ways to save money while you explore the city. Seth Kugel publishes one of my favorite travel columns for the NYTimes - Frugal Traveler. He recently posted an article on this topic - "A $100 Weekend in Melbourne" and talks about inexpensive restaurants, free museums visits, and more. 

Here's an excerpt:

"In Melbourne, every weekend brings some sort of festival, and usually more than one. I was a week late for the Melbourne Food and Wine Festivaland a week early for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, so we settled for dropping by the Viva Victoria festival, which celebrates the city’s multicultural charms. Still stuffed from breakfast, I passed on the Mauritian chili cakes and Polish sausage and Indonesian satay and Chilean empanadas — but not on the chance to have my picture taken with Ranger Roo, the mascot of the Victoria state parks."
