Hey everyone
Just noticed this post .iam arriving in melbourne monday 13th feb - I am on my own and like most people on the thread cant decide what hostel to book for my first few nights! Central would be good as you have access to everything and can just get the tram to st kilda when you feel like beach days etc but st kilda seems like so much fun - it hard to pick. Does anyone have any hostel recommendations?! There are just so many!
Think it would be great to meet up with other lone travellers for a drink or something that doesnt cost to much and make friends!! :)

Hey Everyone,
I have been living in melb for about two months but dont really know anyone here and would love to go to Phillip Island for a visit.. whether it be a day trip or overnight.. just wandering if anyone is keen to go? looking to go sometime in Feb as i am moving to Canada in March to live. Would love to hear from anyone. maybe if there is a few of us we can all go together! or even stay there somewhere cheap for the night.

Hey all, if any of you are interested in meeting a few local Melburnians keen on travel, Travellerspoint is helping organise a travel meetup this coming Tuesday (31st Jan). I'll be there and would be cool if some of you came along. Let me know you found out through here and I'll shout you a beer ;)

Here's the invite on FB - (it's open, so you're all welcome to come along). If you have any questions about what to do around town, I'm sure we can offer some good suggestions ;)
