Uh, I've got no idea, probably. But they're the top side at the moment so things could get ugly.
I'm on the northern side of the CBD in Brunswick West, but my tram route, the 55, runs straight through the CBD and goes past one side of the casino.

Lygon Street, the Queen Vic Market, and the Museum are also on the northern side of the CBD. Botanical Gardens are south side of the Yarra. Really, though, with the trams, it's piss-easy to get around - and going north to south across the CBD is quicker than going west to east, incidentally.

Hey, Bonnie, just a bit confused: the 23rd to the 26th is Monday to Thursday. Are the Eagles and Hawks playing midweek or something?

Oh, that's right. My mum and dad are coming over on the 27th, then we go to the footy. I was only including the 23rd-26th because that's when I'll have the most spare time.

Ahh, gotcha. I was thinking four days was a pretty short trip.

Well, apart from the afternoon of the 23rd, I'm free for that entire period.

Excellent. Will there be some Interland gathering for tea and drinks for at least one night, then? Where is that Greek place you guys were thinking of?

What's wrong with the 26th or 27th Bonnie? And will you have enough left for the 29th Bonnie?

Right, I think I remember where the Museum is so I have a faint image of what you're talking about. I'll put my faith in the trams for the trip, I reckon.

I'm not sure if I'll be there for the 28th, not for long anyway. I'll see what happens. I don't know why my mum didn't book for a period over the weekend.

Damn well better be! I believe the place the Maj. had in mind is on Lygon Street. Hopefully this is far enough in advance that he can make at least plan for one evening to be free.

Lygon Street is two blocks to the west of the Museum. The Carlton Gardens, which the Museum and Royal Exhibition Building are in, stretch down to the northeastern tip of the CBD.

If you are within walking distance of a Swanston Street/St Kilda Road tram route, that would be bloody convenient for you.
