Get in[edit]

By train[edit]

From Melbourne take the Belgrave train line. Takes about 40 minutes.

To use public transport you'll need a Myki card, which costs $6 (or $3 for children/concession) from post offices, milk-bars, petrol stations and train stations. Once you have the Myki card it needs to be topped up with money. An adult fee (for one trip) is approximately $3 (it changes frequently) and a child/concession fee is $1.50. The number of stops doesn't change the cost.

By car[edit]

Hiring a car isn't too hard in Melbourne and there are many car rental places and websites.
