Hi, Im headed to Melbourne in Feb for 6 months and as im not staying in a hostel i wondered if anyone had any ideas where I can go to meet other travellers? Do any of the hostels have public bars? I thought I might do the neighbours tour thing as I guess a lot of backpackers do that-has anyone ever done this on their own or do people tend to go in groups? Any other ideas?
Thanks in advance

You may try St Kilda region, because that has always had loads of young people everytime I have gone.

I'd say that as long as you don't mind approaching people then you'll meet people wherever you are.

I'm heading from Sydney to Melbourne by bus in a couple of weeks, feel free to send me a message when you get there. I'm staying in St Kilda for the grand prix week but if i'm there early i'm thinking of staying in a different hostel. :)
