I wen to Melbourne from Sydney by train. Operated by CountryLink and the map is here. It took me eleven hours. Wow. I started off 8:40 at night so I had to sleep on train. That's not comfortable but it saved me one night accommodation.
Arrived in Melbourne 7:35 in the morning, and it was raining. A few steps I figured out the location of the accommodation hostel. I would live here for three nights in a 10-beds room. Only 13 AUD per night and free breakfast. Wow! After checked in, I started to fool around.
There is a free tram service, City Circle, which as its name implies routes around the city. Excellent, so I don't have to spend any cent on transportation except going to far away areas such as beaches or others.
