  1. Hi all, Am new to this forum. My partner, my 2 year old son and I will be making the move to Melbourne towards the end of the month. I will be working at Tullamarine Airport and my partner will pick up some part time work to start with where she can. Can anyone suggest some nice areas to live which are close(ish) to the airport. I don't mind a 20-30 drive. I will be on a scooter on my commute which should be handy. Ideally we would like to be as near to the city as possible, but we don't want to be cramped into a snug townhouse without a backyard etc. Some people have suggested Coburg/Pascoe Vale, but in our price range we are either going to get an older property or a new townhouse which I know is going to be cramped. Also, areas with nice parks, daycares, transport to the CBD and shopping (supermarkets, general stores) close by would be ideal. Thanks so much.
  2. Hi, I've been told to expect at least a 1-2 hrs wait to get through Customs at the airport as they check the actual contents of your luggage. Anyone had any recent experiences of going through Customs in Melbourne? My flight gets in at 910pm so trying to estimate how long my friend will be waiting for me. Thanks :wink:
  3. Hi. I am a new member coming on holiday on a budget from Melbourne airport to Safety Beach / Dromana on a Saturday afternoon in Late January. Any advice please on quickest/economical transport. Best regards j:smile:arthur
  4. Hello, I'm hoping to move to Melbourne sometime soon and have started to look for an area that would suit our needs. We would probably be looking to rent for the first year whilst we find our feet and get used to life in Vic. Firstly, There is myself, my wife and two children (Boy aged 4 and girl aged 6 months.) I will be working at Tullamarine airport. I drive, my wife doesn't. As my wife needs good public transport links and decent local shops/cafes/community/culture, we don't want to be too out in the sticks. Do most areas have a good selection of shops, or is it all mall based? Accomodation wise, we would be looking for a decent size flat or apartment, or a house if we can stretch to it. The Western side of the city would be better for my commute, but like the sound of the St. Kilda vibe. Is the commute from the eastern side too much hassle, or is there somewhere on the western side that is similar. budget up to $500PW. hopefully less if possible. :biggrin: Any ideas?

    Laverton and Tullamarine

    Hi, I've applied for a couple of jobs in the Laverton and Tullamarine areas. I was hoping someone could give me some local knowledge, we are looking for a nice suburb to bring up our kids so schools parks etc are a factor, thanks in advance, Graeme and Eilidh :biggrin:
  6. Flying this Friday 22nd from Tullamarine for a week, wondering what the parking options are. At the airport cheapest is open parking and costs about $90 (counts as 8 days) and seems to be unsecure. Shuttle bus only appears to go every 20 mins which is a bit rubbish. Goes up to $120 for covered. There seem to be a few places nearby with covered secure parking for about $99, then a free shuttle bus. Some of the buses are on demand, others run regularly. Only appear 5-10 mins from airport, which may be quicker that actually at the airport, plus more secure. Anybody have any opinions or suggestions thanks
  7. Hi, I know that Jetstar do internal flights from Adelaide into Melbourne Tullamarine. Do Virgin Blue fly into Tullamarine from Adelaide? I have had a look on their website and its not entirely clear. I would hate to book a flight on line and find it flies into Avalon instead!:unsure:
