Information regarding the 2015 Esperanto congress and summer school, Melbourne
How to get to the congress venue
International Esperantists or Esperanto speakers from other states, who intend to use public transport in Melbourne, and who will be travelling by “Skybus” from the airport or who will be travelling by train to “Southern Cross” station, must buy a “Myki” visitor card ($14 or $7 concession). This visitor card includes a map and instructions for the use of the card. These can be bought at booths next to the Skybus stops at the airport. They are also available at the station (next to Collins Street). It is better if you put extra money on the card when you buy it, because the initial cost only gives you one day of travel.
Tickets are NOT for sale in trams, buses or on trains!
After buying the Myki card, catch tram no. 86 or 96 (destination: Brunswick) until Elizabeth Street, get out and catch tram no. 19 (destination: North Coburg) and get out at stop 15.
The gate to International House, 241 Royal Parade, Parkville, is a brightly coloured arch.
The alternative is to go to the International House by taxi, only 2km from the city centre.
