Melbourne has the ability to provide historic theatres that still offer modern comfort. this is one of my favourite spots in melbourne to enjoy a night out due to variety of performances on display.
The architecture alone is enough reason to visit. You can easily...More
Went to see a guitarist at this venue. Standing room on balcony and floor. Floor had 3 different height levels. 2 rows of seating booths. Got a bit warm inside during the show. Best to wear layers of clothes in case you get too hot....More
Walking past this beautiful building & met Chris the manager who kindly invited us in to see Jet in concert - could not believe this incredible gesture & I sincerely hope we can return the favor one day somehow? His love of the building shines...More
Went here for the first time last week to a concert. The decor was amazing so beautiful. Was like u were in old times in the romans or cesears palace. Made it feel like the night was coming inside. Great venue for a concert.
Every time we see an event at the Forum, I am always amazed at its beauty. The Roman decor and the lighting are just gorgeous. We were there most recently for the Melbourne Comedy Festival. I hope this place never changes!
Went to see Urzila Carslon comedian at the Forum. It is a lovely old place keeping it in its original style giving it character. The seating are on plastic seats that can be removed on the wooden floor. The show was opened up to more...More
Quaint, cosy little theatre we visited during the Melbourne Comedy Festival recently. Looks well used (but in a nice way) and caters for various events as there doesn’t seem to be any fixed seated, only temporary removable chairs which obviously can be removed for standing...More
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
Accommodation / Transport in Melbourne! (7 Replies)
Hi, I'm wanting to fly from BNE to MEL but unsure on which airport to use in Melbourne. We are going to the Forum Centre in Melbourne? Which is closer and more convenient? Need help. Also - what's the best way to organise transport to and from the airport to the motel? We'll hopefully get accommodation with walking distance to Forum Melbourne. Any help is much needed thank you!

Hi, There are a bunch of TOP questions about Melbourne you can read on a Laptop/PC that will answer your questions about Melbourne In General. Do you mean the Forum Theatre in Russell St? Which motel are you talking about? There are no motels in Melbourne CBD, only hotels/hostels/apartments. What is your budget? You can use something like booking.com and put in the parameters for people, bedding configuration, budget style of accommodation etc and then use the map view to pick one close...More
