Life in Melbourne
Called “the city of the 4 seasons in 1 day”, so, when is time to make your luggage, make sure you pack as many warm clothes as the summer ones. This variation in the weather is kind of expected thanks to its location, in the southern point of the continent in the state of Victoria.
Regarding cost of living, we have to say that it will be a bit more expensive, considering that just like you, there are lots of people wanting to make Melbourne their home city. In other words, rental prices are higher due to the offer and demand.
One Melbourne’s best public services is its transport. Within the CBD, you will be able to catch the tram as well as buses totally free.
In areas around the city, despite of having to pay for fares, the timetables and connexions are really impressive. In order to catch public transport, you will need to purchase a Myki Card, this card can be found at any station for $4,10 AUD. You can re-charge the card weekly or monthly, and it will save you good money.
