Melbourne help!

« on: July 04 2005 03:07:00 »

My husband is going to Melbourne Uni, so I'm here for the next 3 years.  We don't have a car...so what sort of public transportation can I take to get to surf spots?  Can you take a board on the train/bus??  What're the nearest spots?  We've been here a week and I'm dying to get in the water somehow.  Didn't realize the city was such a hike...
Thanks

Hi girl,
Jack here.
Sorry noone`s answered your post.
I`m not a surfer but I know that Bells Beach is famous,
You might be able to get a bus there from Geelong.
Us Aussies would simply ask someone to drive us there. Unfortunately I don`t drive either but I did go to Melb Uni.
Good luck
Jack

Hi

I recently got back from Melbourne and did some good winter surfing, easily accesible by public transport to some beauty waves. Take the train at Spencer St. Station, (stop # 1 on tram, zone 1), to Geelong, then bus it from Geelong to Torquay, where surf beaches are aplenty. Torquay surf beach, Jan Juc, Bells Beach (if you're bloody good), and the list continues. Ocean Grove may be the closest, but I reckon Torquay is more consistent.

If you tell the person at Spencer St. station that you want to go to Torquay, they hook you up right from there, for $27.00 if I remember correctly, you want the 2nd stop in Torquay.

You are lucky to be living near such beautiful surf!!
