Free Travel on Melbourne’s Red Explorer Bus

in Australia

The Australian city of Melbourne really is a capital made for tourists. As if the free City Circle Tram didn’t make getting around easy enough, visitors can also discover the city for free on the Red Explorer bus, otherwise known as the Melbourne City Tourist Shuttle.

As there are no tickets, tourists can hop on at any station, and hop off once they spot something interesting.

It’s a great system for sightseers, as they can alight and depart at the designated stops as many times as they wish.

There are 13 stops in all, which take in Melbourne’s major tourist attractions. In the Melbourne Arts Precinct you’ll find the NGV International and other galleries, the Sports Precinct is home to venues for cricket, Aussie Rules, and rugby league, and Chinatown is a great spot for a cheap feed.

The Red Explorer bus runs every day except Good Friday and Christmas Day between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm. You’ll never wait more than 30 minutes at any of the stops, so it’s a very convenient and frugal way to see Victoria’s most popular city!
