Re: Arrival Tips for New Students

Once you arriave to Melbourne Airport, you must want to come to your prebooked accommodation. Taxi is too expensive?

 

Don't worry, we got you. Melboune city has couple of airport pickup service company, the most popular one is called Skybus.

 

It costs $18/person for a one way trip from the airport to city, vice versa. Once you reach skybus's city connection center, AKA 'Southern Cross Station' on spencer street, you may ask them to send you to the closed hotel of where you want to go, and it is free.

 

They are operating 24/7 through out the whole year, here is the link you may want to check.

Re: Arrival Tips for New Students

More tips are coming on how to find suitable accomodation!

 

There are two main webpages here that local are using, one is called domain, see the link below:

https://www.domain.com.au/?mode=rent

 

Another web is called real estate, see the following link:

https://www.realestate.com.au/rent

 

You can find some nice avaliable houses/apartment/studios on both of them, make sure you visit the actual place for an inspection before signning any contracts. I would strongly suggest you to sign a rental contract with an agent here.

 

Good luck guys! Welcome to Melbourne.
