Ha, I'm glad you got around to this. I'm actually doing a photographic entry on my blog right now so my attention's a little divided.

So, here's an outline of my proposal:

Monday 28/01 is the Aussie Day public holiday. It's short notice, so I'm not suggesting much. Just that anybody who would like to meet up is more than welcome to come join me in Royal Park, where I will photograph trains/trams and we could have a little picnic or something. To fit in with people's work schedules, 4pm is my proposed time. There's one spot in particular that I'd like to try out for tram photography, so I'll post a map of the spot.

We can then go on to organise a more substantial gathering somewhere - maybe another picnic if we like it, or maybe something more formal, like at a pub or restaurant, or if U2 3D gets its arse down there, something associated with that.

Also, if anybody is going to Dream Theater on 29/01 or Explosions In The Sky on 16/02, let me know! I'm currently going by myself.

And please, pass on a link to this thread to any cool Melburnian Interferencers.

Sounds really nice Axver, kinda excited now!

I'm afraid to say that I'm not familiar at all with Dream Theatre, but they do sound really interesting ... I actually thought of going when I first heard about the tour but I just don't have the $$ at the moment.

Looking forward to meeting you all

Looks like there's still going to be plenty of trains between Geelong and Melbourne on the 28th. Just follow this link and adjust the travel date and time period filters to 28-01-2008 and full day: http://www.viclink.com.au/line/view/2682

Which reminds me that the route 55 through Royal Park is actually running on a Saturday timetable on Monday, so there go the peak hour services I was hoping would be around. Oh well! That means that it doesn't matter what time of day we meet there; the tram frequency will be relatively the same.

Oh, I understand - the price of Dream Theater tickets is about double what I was expecting! Until I saw it was over $100 for even the worst tickets, I was considering travelling to either Adelaide or Brisbane for a second show. The Adelaide gig will actually be their 1,000th show ever (Melbourne is 1,001st). But I can't justify the expense. I can't believe I'm paying more to see Dream Theater than I paid for any one of my ten U2 concert tickets. In fact, I've never paid this much to see anybody!

And yeah, I'm really looking forward to this - it'll be fun! Plus I'm getting really bored these days, what with not having a job and university not going back for another month or so.

Know where Melbourne Zoo or the Royal Children's Hospital are?

And I'll provide maps, don't worry.

If this is shittily inaccessible, we can change to somewhere easier.

It's closeby to the Melbourne Zoo isn't it? I haven't been down that way for yonks ... I remember going as a little kid and adored the tram ride on the way
