Informazioni pratiche su Melbourne

Come orientarsi in città

Melbourne's efficient public transport system, known as The Met, is an integrated service utilising trams, trains and buses, with standard fares. The best way to see the city and central suburbs is by tram, a fast, cheap and convenient system that is one of the largest and oldest in the world. City Circle trams, which provide a commentary, are a very convenient way to tour the city centre, providing a free round trip service that takes in many of the city's main attractions. The suburban train network is extensive and is the fastest way to reach outlying suburbs, and also has an underground city loop. Buses cover the areas that trams and trains don't reach, as well as those they do, but are little used by visitors; on weekends there is a limited night bus service. Taxis, highly visible in bright yellow, are numerous but expensive. Car hire companies are available throughout the city.

Orario

GMT +10 (GMT +11 from third Sunday in October to third Saturday in March).

Elettricità

La corrente elettrica in Australia è di 240/250 volt, 50Hz. Si utilizzano spine tripolari a spinotti piatti, che sono però diverse da quelle utilizzate in altri Paesi, quindi in genere si richiede un adattatore.

Valuta

La valuta è il Dollaro australiano (AUD), suddiviso in 100 centesimi. Le carte di credito sono ampiamente accettate e gli sportelli bancomat sono disponibili in tutto il Paese. Banche e uffici di cambio accettano la maggior parte delle valute estere. Le banche sono aperte dalle 9:30 alle 16:00 da lunedì a giovedì, e dalle 9:30 alle 17:00 il venerdì, ma alcune offrono orari prolungati e l'apertura il sabato mattina.

Comunicazione

Il prefisso internazionale per l'Australia è +61. Le società di telefonia mobile australiane operano su reti GSM, quindi alcuni telefoni cellulari esteri potrebbero non essere compatibili con le reti locali. È possibile noleggiare telefoni cellulari e gli internet café sono ampiamente diffusi.

Numero di emergenza

Emergenze: 000 (112 da telefoni cellulari)
