Newcastle to Melbourne

Australian Travel.

Well I am back in Australia now. I had to get to Melbourne. I started off at 10am waiting for the bus to get into the center of Newcastle to get the shuttle bus to the airport. This jogger came past while I was waiting at the bus stop.

Newcastle busses are horrendous. It is not hard to work out why hardly anyone uses them. The one I got was fifteen minutes late and I almost missed the shuttle to the airport. You almost need a car to get anywhere in Newcastle. Public transport is horrendous.

In comparison public transport in Melbourne is very good. There are numerous trains, trams and busses that will get you around the city very easily. The airport shuttle from Melbourne’s Tullamarine airport is ready to go in minutes and takes you to the Southern Cross train station in the middle of Melbourne. I just got off the airport shuttle and caught a tram to where I wanted to go to in the suburbs of Melbourne. No problem.
