慳錢篇︰
Transport
1.        Sydney

Airport Link係part of City Rail. 單程由Airport to City都要$11.x / $7.9(concession). 而City Rail Day Tripper (Suburban City Rail, Bus, Ferry任搭)係$15. 個人覺得係好難用得晒$15的,因為每程車/ferry大概都係$1-2,加上我的習慣係行路去explore多過搭車。若果真係想買day-tripper,記得在airport時一齊買。因為day-tripper唔包機場站的,而兩者一齊買只需要$23.x

2.        Concession Fee @ Public Transport
Fact: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane的Public Transport, ISIC都係冇concession的。
Sydney: 若在counter買CityRail飛,實會俾人check ISIC, 我的做法係用機買,幸好未試過俾人check
Melbourne: CityCircleTram係free of charge的, 但搭其他tram, 係靠買MetCard (2hr / Day Pass), 然後上車”dut” card activate.(rule係每程都要dut) 購買地方可以係電車上(會自動即刻activate),或者在便利店買(上車時再activate). 但據我一直觀察,local都好少人會dut card (或許佢地之前果程dut左,或者根本冇買飛)。而我最後一日的做法,係在便利店買2-hr pass,然後坐近dut card machine, 有人check時….先立即dut. 結果我都未遇過有人check飛~ 而家仲有一張未用過的2-hr Metcard帶番香港留念。
Brisbane: 係分zone/距離來買飛,慳錢方法大概同Sydney一樣。Similar to Melbourne, 有一架city loop bus (free), 每10mins一班

至於Country Link (Interstate Rail & Coach), ISIC係可以名正言順有concession的

當然最好的方法就係多用腳行去explore啦~ 最能感受~ 睇得最多野。
我絕對唔會搭explorer bus, etc

Interstate Transport
1.        Train www.countrylink.org.au / www.railaustralia.com.au 有學生concession其實都幾平,overnite train Brisbane->Sydney 只係$58.3, 1st class都係$7x左右
2.        來往Melbourne <->Adelaide / Melbourne <-> Sydney可選擇一d 私人operate 既coach (在Melbourne Spenser St Station有counter, 全部有overnite coach, 價錢比train仲平少少)
3.        Domestic Plane is very cheap as well. Jetstar and virginblue always have promotion. Yet the exact price depends on the date and time. 而同一班機可以過幾日唔同價 www.jetstar.com / www.viriginblue
但要小心Jetstar Melbourne飛Brisbane, 個airport唔係平時domestic的那一個, 係叫avalon, 要搭成個鍾coach過去的

Supermarket: 食野想慳的確唔少得超市

1. Sydney: Town Hall Station有三層樓高的Woolworth
2. Melbourne: Spencer St Station對面的IGX, Flinder St 對面的Coles Express Central (兩間都好平,而且開24hr / till midnite)
3. Brisbane: 在CBD 有Big W, Coles, Woolworth, 位置好容易搵, eg Queen St Mall

住︰
一般Hostel都係$20-$26一晚,視乎間hostel既規模有幾大
always remember to pick up those free Backpacker Travel Magazine, 裡面會有好多coupon, 例如幾蚊discount / free internet, etc

Local Tour:絕對係海鮮價!!!

Take Melbourne Otway 的Great Ocean Tour為例,promotion leaflet say $80; when I call up to book, I didn’t quote the price, but ask them, the gal say $75; during the tour, I chat with other tour-mate, they say book through their hostel, cost only $65
最後我當然request for the price diff la ($75-65=$10!)
但可惜我聽聞有d其他團友~ 好似係俾緊$85呢!

連Autopia Tours (www.autopiatours.com.au )一間我覺得幾有規模的tour company, 上網既leaflet同hostel攞到的都係唔同價錢呢。我打電話去book tour, 個職員係問我手上拎住的leaflet上寫咩價,然後就收那個價了。真可惜我當時唔知道有呢個price difference…俾貴了… >.<

終極慳錢慳時間︰玩 + transportation (multi-days tour)
from Melbourne to Adelaide:
Join a 3 day tour, eg Autopia Tour, $1xx左右,可以玩埋Great Ocean Road同Grampians, 慳番transit既時間。由melbourne出發,第三天就到了adelaide
同樣地,from Sydney to Canberra / Melbourne都有類似tour, 中途可以玩埋blue mountain同其他地方…
