Getting around

Most visitors base themselves in the city centre, the buzzing commercial heart of Melbourne that's also home to museums, theatres, restaurants, bars and shops. Melbourne's grid layout makes it an easy city to navigate, with most attractions within walking distance. Transport options include train, tram, bus or bike.

myki cards
myki is Melbourne's ticket to travel on the city's trains, trams and buses. It's a plastic smartcard with stored value which can be topped up and re-used again. Purchase your myki online at the myki website, premium train stations, retail outlets displaying the myki sign (including 7-Elevens), or by calling 1800 800 007 (free from a land line) in Australia.

Visitor packs
For flexible travel, buy a myki Visitor Pack from Melbourne Visitor Centre, Federation Square, the PTV Hub at Southern Cross Station (corner Swanston and Little Collins streets), SkyBus terminals and some hotels. Packs include a pre-loaded myki card with enough value for one day of travel in Zone 1, instructions on how to use myki, a Melbourne tram map and discount entry to Melbourne attractions.

Fare types
Metropolitan Melbourne is divided into two zones. When you touch your myki on and off the electronic readers as you travel, the lowest fare for your trip is deducted. Train travel completed before 7.00am on a weekday is free. For more information on zones, ticketing and timetables, visit the Public Transport Victoria website.
