Hey Guys, i'm traveling for Melbourne 1st week of august as well. Around the 9th or 10th. Booking later today as this was a quick decision. Stayin for about 2-3 weeks then back to Perth. First time traveling solo for me so was kinda hoping to bump into new friends and exploring the area to have fun.

I'm still looking for a place to stay. Any recommendations from those who have already found a place? I don't even know where to begin touring around the area yet. Lol.

Anyways, I'll check this forum every now and then and see if I can meet you guys there.

Hiya Dee

I fly out to Melbourne on the 9th and land on the 11th, also travelling alone so definatly up for meeting new friends and seeing the place. I'm staying in Urban central as it has good reviews and friends have stayed there in the past and have said its very good.

Dan... Think ive managed to add you on face book but at the minute i'm not on it as it keeps giving my comp virusses but as soon as its fixed I will be back on it.

Heya Lizzy,

Good to know i'm not alone in this Definitely meet with you guys there. Tried to book on urban central but for some reason, it wouldn't allow me. I'll try again later. Otherwise I might have to book at space hotel near the cbd for a week and see how it goes from there.

See you soon then. ;)

So I got me an earlier date and will be arriving on the 3rd of august instead. Got me a week stay within the cbd area and see if I like it there then extend. My problem is what if I wanna extend my stay and the hotel is full by then. Hopefully, they'll prioritize their existing guest.

So I suppose I'm all set and ready. Lol. See you guys there. Will keep you posted if that helps the others.

Dee might be worth sounding out the accomm before you arrive about possible extension of your stay. Even though it's winter here that are a lot of things in Melbourne that draws in crowds.
