Travel tips

It would be a good idea to arrange supplementary health insurance and travel insurance. Carry proof of insurance coverage, and give a copy to someone at home. Have any required vaccinations. If you are taking medication with you, make sure you keep it in its original container. Carry a doctor's prescription for any controlled drugs, and if you use syringes, carry a medical certificate. Leave copies at home as well.

Make sure your passport has not expired and is valid for six months beyond the time of your trip. Photocopy the identification page and keep it separate from your passport. Leave another copy with someone at home.

Make sure you have any visas you need.

Keep the original receipts for any purchases you make, as well as for your hotel bill, rental car agreement, and medical service bills.

 Our weather gets cool in winter (you won't find snow in the city) and hot in Summer. Bring a wardrobe to suit but expect the unexpected with Melbourne's notoriously fluctuating weather.
