Getting around Melbourne

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.

It is strongly recommendable to purchase a myki card upon your arrival in Melbourne and commence your ground transportation using Melbourne public transports (such as Tram and Train).

Free Tram Ride within the Melbourne CBD

From 1 January 2015, tram travel within the CBD and Docklands will be free. The new Free Tram Zone includes the area from the iconic Queen Victoria Market, across to Victoria Harbour in Docklands, up to Spring Street and over to Flinders Street Station and Federation Square. Travel on trams within this zone is free, and you won’t need a myki, however, if your journey starts or finishes outside the boundaries of the Free Tram Zone, you must touch on your myki at the reader in the normal way to make sure you have a valid ticket. The Free Tram Zone signs at tram stops will identify the boundaries of the zone.
