【墨尔本】行程表 Melbourne (Itinerary)

首先,这不是一张 “表”。因为,我们根本没有写 “表”。

我只能说墨尔本是没有什么固定行程表的。出发前,我只是大概大概读了些游记、参考了一些旅游资讯网站,就领着行李走了。依稀记得,我就连行李也是最后一分钟收好的。小小的一个行李箱。连妈妈也一脸迷惑地问:你就带那么少东西?

呵呵。没办法。拖拖拖是我的本性。

我和我妈是在 2014 年 11 月末去墨尔本的。

天气:十分好,几乎每天都放晴,而且气候凉凉的,即使顶着大太阳走路也不会流汗。有些时候还是需要穿上冷衣。行程的最后一天,天气忽然转为暖暖的。完全不出奇,墨尔本的天气就是这么让人摸不着头脑。

第一天:

抵达墨尔本机场的时候已经是深夜了。听说墨尔本的入境处时常大排长龙,于是跟妈妈快步走向入境处。哪知道 —— 根本没有人好不好。而且他们也是随便看了看护照而已,便示意可以通关了。我难以置信地望着那个官员,再三确认才离开。走出机场的时候,迎来冷风一阵,也顾不了那么多。三步并作两步地走到 Skybus 的售票亭去购买了机场 – 市区的来回巴士票。Skybus 是通往市中心最便捷的方法,24 小时照跑,每周 7 天。

Check in 酒店后,便争取时间补眠。这是必然的。哈哈!

Day 1:

My mom and I were there during the last week of november

The weather was just perfect – rather cool and light jackets were needed. However, on our last day of trip (30/11), the weather turned warmer. Well, it wasn’t really a surprise as Melbourne weather can be that unpredictable.

On our first day, we arrived in Melbourne at night. We grabbed a Skybus (operates 24/7) https://www.skybus.com.au/timetables/

After the late check-in (Travelodge Docklands), we rested for a whole night. The next morning, we walked to the nearest tram stop and took a ride on Tram 35 (City Circle Tram – FREE) Check here for route map: https://ptv.vic.gov.au/assets/PDFs/Maps/Network-maps/City-Circle-map.pdf

第二天:

从酒店步行到最近的电车站,乘搭免费电车 (35号)到市中心去。

免费电车路线图按这里

电车抵达 Flinders Street 后下车,步行到唐人街去。其实,市中心的范围并不会太大,天气凉凉的时候走路,觉得惬意满分。在到唐人街的路上,我钻入一间电信店去购买 Simcard 配套。当时,我用的是 Optus 的配套,每天 2 澳币,有 500M 的上网限额 (每天)。真的很便宜,而且那么高的额度,我甚至每天 FaceTime 都不是问题。

Optus 超值预付配套

这一天,我们靠着双腿走遍了墨尔本市中心。大街小巷的商店、商场都逛遍了。途经圣保罗大教堂的时候,还兴奋地跑进去参观。十分自我脚步的一天。十分羡慕墨尔本人能够那么悠然自得地生活着。午休的时间,就买了一杯饮料、一份三文治,在草地上找了一处阴凉处,就席地而坐,悠悠享受午餐,不疾不徐。啊,美好的午后!

小贴士: 免费无线网在墨尔本似乎不是很普遍。就连酒店房间里也没有提供 Wifi。这也就是为什么我需要一张 Simcard. 无论如何,要是你不想要购买 Simcard,那么还是可以走到 Federation Square 去使用那里的的 Wifi。

Day 2:

 

Our first stop was to Chinatown for lunch. We actually got off the tram at Flinders Street Station and walked there – not very far. Along the way, I bought a local Sim card.

Basically, on this day, we were only wandering around the CBD area, such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, Federation Square and around Flinders Street. We spent much time along the different streets and shops.

p.s. Free Wifi is not very common in Melbourne. Even our hotel room wasn’t offering free wifi during our stay. That’s the main reason I got a local sim card. However, if you*if you’re not planning to get the sim card, Federation Square does offer Free Wifi*

第三天:

早上的时候,我们还是选择搭乘免费有轨电车去 Queen Victoria Market. 在任何一个站跳上 35号电车,然后再 Flagstaff Station 下车。 从车站走到菜市范围还是有一段距离的。不过,风和日丽的早晨,那一段小路根本不算什么。不费吹灰之力就看到菜市的入口了!沿途会经过 Flagstaff Garden,我个人认为会是休闲、野餐的好地方。毕竟,绿意盎然的公园又有谁不爱?Queen Victoria Market 售卖着各式各样的产品:从农产品、海产到衣物,以至纪念品都可以在市场里找到。而且,这里的纪念品售价可比其他地方便宜多了。

在市场的熟食区里,一定要尝试他们的 boreks。不必怕找不到,borek 的摊子前面总是排满了人,应该很难不注意到。

当天的傍晚,我们搭乘 96号电车去 St. Kilda. (路线图参考下列网址)

St. Kilda 是海边小镇。可是,即使像我们这样,对于海边没有什么特别向往的人,也会喜欢上这样充满活力的小镇。从走下电车的那一刻起,我就喜欢上了街道两旁的食肆、酒吧。看似喧哗的街道,却是宁静休闲的。或许,夜点会比较热闹,可是我毕竟不是爱热闹的人。所以,这样的宁静,反而让我可以好好享受。

Day 3:

In the morning, we went to Queen Victoria Market. Again, we took the City Circle Tram 35 and got off at Flagstaff Station. It was within walking distance from Flagstaff Station. Along the way, we passed by Flagstaff Garden, which I thought, is a good place for leisure and picnic. Queen Victoria Market holds a wide range of products – from fresh produce to clothes to souvenirs. Very impressive. There, in their deli hall, try out their Boreks. You can’t miss it as you’ll find a long queue in front of the stall. Later on that day, we went to St. Kilda. Check out Route 96: https://ptv.vic.gov.au/assets/Maps/Routes/PDFs/1041_Tram96.pdf

It’s a beach place. Even if we were not interested in the beach, we still find the place interesting as there’re many eateries and fun shops to explore.

第四天:

这一天,我们参加了长青旅行社的 “大洋路之旅” 配套。那是我们在步行环市的时候,在 Swanston Street 签下的配套。长青旅行社的配套比较吸引我,因为:

1。 价格实惠,甚至比某些旅行社便宜一半。 2。备有中文团 (妈妈不谙英语,参加中文团比较适合)

我的结论:大洋路,真的不适合一日游。无论多早。真的太赶了。如果在外国驾驶没有问题,那么租车应该会是首选。至少可以在一些小镇稍作停顿,甚至过一晚,享受下墨尔本的郊外生活。

如果对长青旅行社的配套有兴趣,那么可以参考下面的网址。

Day 4:

This day, we joined a local tour to Great Ocean Road. Day earlier, we signed up for a tour package in Extragreen Holidays (in Swanston Street). We opted for Extragreen among all other companies because: 1. it’s cheaper 2. Chinese tours available (my mom couldn’t understand English)

My verdict: A bit rush, if you were to take only ONE DAY TOUR to Great Ocean Road. If you have no problem driving in a foreign country, you can consider hiring a car and stay a night/ two in the small towns along the road.

第五天:

跟长青旅行社订了另一个配套,包括 Brighton Beach, Dandenong Ranges 和 Puffing Billy 的一日游。其实,这些地方都可以搭乘公共交通去。不过,我不想要那么奔波 —— 虽然旅途中的奔波也可以很满足,可是带着妈妈还是算了。

小贴士:

1。Brighton Beach 就好像是墨尔本的必备套餐,去看看也不错。注意大风!

2。Puffing Billy:很特别的经验。出发的时候,往右边的窗户靠;回程的时候做在左边。风景比较漂亮。

3。至于 Dandenong Ranges 嘛,我已经没什么印象了。*悲剧*

Day 5:

We took another day tour package to Brighton Beach, Dandenong Ranges and Puffing Billy with Extragreen Holidays.

All places above are actually very accessible by public transport. However, I didn’t want my mom to be in a rush for changes of route, so we signed up for the tour package. As you know, Brighton Beach is almost like a *must-go*, Puffing Billy is a unique experience. As for Dandenong, we didn’t have much memory there XD.

Tips: If you were to take a ride on Puffing Billy, sit on the right side going up and the left side coming back. The views are a heap better on these sides.

第六天:

在 Pho Bo Ga Mekong Vietnam 吃了越南河粉后,我们决定来个 “教堂趴趴走” 。墨尔本市内随处可见风格各异的大小教堂。这样的暴走,的确也让人大开眼界。身在教堂范围内,庄严的氛围却又让人觉得更平静。墨尔本市中心地图、公交路线图,参考下列网址。

 

Day 6:

After an awesome brunch in Pho Bo Ga Mekong Vietnam, we decided that we would have a “cathedral and church hopping day”, so we walked to many different churches and cathedrals in the city.

第七天:

回程前,我们特地跑到 Queen Victoria Market 去购买纪念品与手信。在户外的熟食区内,找了一张桌子,享受一杯饮料的同时,把所有的明信片都写好,贴上邮票,然后经过邮筒的时候顺便寄了。在这一天结束以前,我们又来到了 St. Kilda,找了一家餐厅,点了丰盛的一餐,好好庆祝了这一次的旅程。当然,我们还是无可避免地点太多了。在吃得快撑了,还可以笑着聊天。此刻,我想我妈比较像一个朋友,陪着我用双脚逛过了这城市。

Day 7:

Before our departure back to KUL, we again returned to QVM to hunt for souvenirs and found a place in the city to sit down, enjoy a cuppa drink and sent off all the postcards. Before the day ended, we returned to St Kilda (for some unknown reasons, but yeah, that’s a good place).

这就是我和妈妈在墨尔本消磨假期的行程。当然,你也可以到郊外的地方去看企鹅、树熊又或者是袋鼠。说来还是一样不可思议,整个行程下来,我和妈妈都没有看见一头真正的袋鼠和树熊。还能说得上去过澳洲吗?哎,可这也不是旅游的精华所在? —— 做些让自己快乐的事,而非别人觉得该做的事儿。当然,我们就连动物园也懒得去呢! 这是最懒的行程,却也最悠然自得。

So that’s basically what we did. However, you should understand that the itinerary was planned according to my mom’s preference. Of course, in Melbourne you can still opt for a tour to see the penguins and a visit to the wildlife centre. Believe it or not, throughout our entire trip, we hadn’t seen a real kangaroo and koala! Haha, but I believe, that’s the essence of a holiday – Do what that pleases you most. And of course, we are also too lazy to even go to their zoo. Our trip was very much leisure and at own pace. Hence, it’s for your little reference and I hope it does help a little.
