- 澳洲打工度假手記, 珀斯

雖然珀斯沒有像Sydney 一樣的vivid Sydney, 但這裡也有一些值得留意的燈光秀啊.


2月

Perth Festival - Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak, Kings Park

這個吸引每年23萬人來看, 超級壯觀. 身處在Kings Park看風景非常出名的Fraser Ave, 晚上有不同的景色. 利用頭影燈及鐳射燈還有錄音和音樂, 這1.5公里的旅程完完全全想放慢腳步細欣賞每個細節. 頭影機把不同的畫面, 影像, 倒影放到樹幹, 樹葉, 還有許多不同的地方上. 這節目是介紹6個節氣.

4月

ART TRA Light Festival, Claremont

這個是我最喜歡的一個節目. 雖然只是在一個公園進行, 規模卻不比Joondalup Festival的弱.
有好多art installation, 有的利用外在環景和物品, 與大自然融合. 有的有互動成份, 你不只看, 還能摸/聽/做動作, 等.

6月

Brookfield Winter Lights, Brookfield Place Perth

Brookfield, 這是一個商場舉辦的燈光秀, 但規模也不遜色. 有射在屋外牆的顏色與光, 也有一些現場音樂和model.

影像投射在白色挺起的裙上, 加上sexaphone音樂及現場唱歌


11月

Kaleidoscope Festival, Joondalup

這個節日會把Joondalup某些街道封掉, 全給遊客來走. 除了有台上表演, 更重要是好多大型光展品, 目不暇给, 有心理準備有些要排隊進去, 需要的時間比較久.

11,12月

Christmas Lights Trail, Perth city

聖誕節期間大家也想和朋友家人食完飯走點路, 這個為期1-1.5月的Christmas Lights Trail就是不錯的節目. 跟著路線在市中心就可以看到好多不同的發光/動畫作品.

袋鼠燈飾



可以進去的發光城堡

– Australia Working Holiday,The day and night of Sydney

2019 Update:
Now you can take 2 buses to go to city. From the airport, you can take 400, 420, then change bus and go to central station, bus fare is only $3.66. However, bus 400 is a prepay bus, it means you can only use opal card to pay for the fare
If you haven;t got a opal card, you can buy one in the airport. The minimum top up for the card is $35 for new policy. If you have an opal card, you can top up your card by $10.

---------------------------------

This is suitable for travelers who travel from other cities of Australia to Sydney Domestic airport. Sydney International Airport and Domestic one are separated.

Please see another entry for Sydney International Airport:

There are several ways to leave Sydney Domestic Airport once you arrive Sydney by plane.


If I want to go to city Central station from the airport:

1. Book the shuttle bus in advance (Price around $16)

Advantage: Point to point, it takes you directly to your hotel/hostel

Disadvantage: You need to book and pay in advance, if you don’t have Australian debit card you may need to pay some transaction fee and the different in exchange rate.

2. Train (The minimum fee to city one way is $16.77, the more far away the more expensive)

(Train fare search tool: http://www.sydneytrains.info/tickets/fare_calculator.htm)

Advantage: Convenient and easy to take the train

Disadvantage: This is the most expensive way to leave airport, apart from taxi

3. Bus route 400 ($2.20-$3.66, depend on which bus station you get off) (https://transportnsw.info)

Advantage: The cheapest among the choices (You can go to Bondi Junction/Burwood just paying $. 3.66 )

Disadvantage: If you want to go to city, you need to drop off at the nearest train station Rockdale and then take train to Central (3.66bus +3.54 train = $7-8)

The frequency of the bus is around 20 minutes, and you need to take a train afterwards, time consuming

So if I want to go to Central station what is the cheapest way?

Today I want to teach you the cheapest way for going to the city. So next time if you come to Sydney to travel/study/working holiday/work from other Australian cities or vice versa you can save a lot. But this method you need to walk for around 20 minutes. So if you have bulky luggage please think about whether it is a good idea for you. The route basically is flat and does not have much incline/decline/staircase.

From Sydney Domestic Airport, you have to walk around 20 minutes to train station Mascot which is the nearest station which does not charge you airport region train fee. So if I take train from Mascot to Central station it only costs $3.80. The train frequency in this station is even higher than that of International Airport station and Rockdale station. Near Mascot station, there are also some buses ($3.50) that go to city. You can opt for this option to save even more. They are M20, 310, 309 (http://www.sydneybuses.info/routes/309_20120318_map.pdf), 305 (http://www.sydneybuses.info/routes/305_20120318_map.pdf)

Route:


This is a straight forward route. Just follow the cars at the main road and turn to another street at a right one.


From Mascot to Sydney Domestic Airport


After leaving Mascot train station turn left and then walk straight


After arriving at Coward Street, cross the road and keep walking straight. You will see Qantas building at the right. Walk straight till the end and turn right at O'Riodan Street


You will see Ibis Hotel at your right hand side


Keep on walking straight until you reach the big overhead advertising board


Keep on walking and you will see 'Welcome to Sydney Domestic Airport'. You will pass through Mecedes-Benz shop on your right. Keep walking and you will turn right lastly.


You will see the building on the left of the image. Go to that building as we need to walk under that building

Closer up of the building's appearance

Then follow the signage to walk through the buildings to get to terminal 2 and terminal 3

From Sydney Domestic Airport to Mascot

After arriving in the luggage area, go to carousal 3 and you will see the yellow signage of public pick up



Follow the signage, walk straight after exiting the door


Turn right at here and walk straight

Until there is no road and you are forced to turn left here


You will see Mecedes-Benz shop at your left. Follow the curved path and you will see the busy road intersection. Cross the road and reach the big advertising board



Keep walking straight


Junction, turn left and walk along Bourke Street




Keep walking and you will arrive at Mascot Station

Let's go to the next city of Australia!

This is suitable for travelers who travel from places out of Australia to Sydney airport as Sydney International airport and Domestic one are separated.

But this method you need to walk for around 20 minutes. So if you have bulky luggage please think about whether it is a good idea for you. The route basically is flat and does not have much incline/decline/staircase.

From Sydney International Airport, you have to walk around 20 minutes to train station Wolli Creek which is the nearest station which does not charge you airport region train fee. So if I take train from Wolli Creek to Central station it only costs $3.80. The train frequency in this station is even higher than that of International Airport station and Rockdale station.

Route:


Special things that you will pass by: Park, bridge, airport car park

I tried to walk through the route at night around 8pm. The lights inside the park are very bright. You can even enjoy the view from the bridge.

I will explain a little bit about the routes from the airport to Wolli Creek and vice versa. Basically it is the same route, I will elaborate what you will see while you are on the way so that you can recognize it easily and get to the destination faster.


窮遊歐洲5個月 - 黑山共和國

黑山共和國給我的第一印象是非常不好. 為什麼?

1. Budva

在海邊城市Budva, 我在車站旁邊的一間餐廳食午餐. 由於是近車站, 好多人也許會借廁所, 當結了帳要去廁所時, 有一個女人大聲罵我有沒有帳單. 有帳單才能去....我沒有, 因為結了帳就算, 結果我要去cashier叫人特地開單給我, 為了就是去廁所......

Budva城牆
Budva海灘,看舊城

2. Kotor

在舊城區Kotor, 遇上人不知是特意有心的還是玩玩的在我後面說Perdon, ok...然後說Japan, China. 我最不喜歡別人亂叫我們亞洲臉孔, 於是我突然擰後用怒視的眼神望著他們, 還咆吼了幾句, 還舉出食指. (回想來我的樣子必定是好恐怖...)

Kotor old town

Kotor fortress

3. Rijeka Crnojevica

我去了一個小鎮rijeka crnojevica, 目的就是看一個風景 - Lake Skadar  一條彎彎的河包著一座山. 回程時好遠, 於是嘗試截順風車. 終於一輛像跑車的車停下, 司機是一名很後生的男子, 不懂英語. 那有得坐我就坐啦, 到達有分叉路時我想是時候下車搭巴士了. 怎料他繼續開車, 我叫他停, 他問我要錢.... 我不給, 他就想幹什麼的...(自已想像是什麼回事). 我立即下車(幸好沒有鎖門.....), 剛好有我要的巴士經過, 立即截巴士....恐怖的經歷.

Lake Skadar
還有, 似乎多數人都不懂英語, hostel的人懂, 但餐廳, 巴士站都不懂. 這是我的經驗.

雖然如此, 我也應該享受在黑山共和國的時間. 來了Durmitor National Park是我在黑山共和國旅遊最好的抉擇.

要看我在Durmitor National Park登山的日程, 可看我其它文章:
Day 1: Crno Jezero - Mali Medjed - Veliki Medjed - Velika kalica - Alpinisticki Bivak

- 窮遊歐洲5個月 - 黑山共和國

Durmitor National Park簡直是登山愛好者的天堂, 有多條單日或多日的登山路線可選擇. 值得留意的是進去這國家公園是要付費的, 每日$3EUR. 最近可住的小鎮是Zablijak, 由小鎮走入國家公園需要最小40分鐘. 我是由Kotor 搭巴士來小鎮Zablijak, 路程頗長, 中途停Niksic, 很多人都下車, 剩下的都是遊客.

Zablijak只有一間hostel. 要$15EUR. 看看booking.com, 其實有民宿, 我訂的$10EUR一晚, 太好了. 但另一件不開心的事就是去到才知道, 主人overbook, 代表我的房間(唯一的房間, 亦是主人的房間, 用來賺錢就是這樣)給了另一人. 我要睡客廳梳化....我不介意, $5一晚吧這樣. 主人答應了, 我也暗地裡開心慳了錢.

黑山共和國最高的山是Bobotov Kuk (2523m), 就在Durmitor National Park裡. 我為什麼沒有登Bobotov Kuk? 我也不記得為什麼了. 到達Zablijak後去了遊客中心問一下登山路條.

今天行程是:
Crno Jezero - Mioc poljana - Struga - Mali Medjed (Small Bear) (2223m) Veliki Medjed (Big Bear) (2287m) - Terzin Bogaz(2303m,原本想去的, 但錯過了分叉口, 就沒有去了) - Velika kalica (Alpinisticki Bivak) - Savin Kuk (2313m, 原本想去的, 但 在Alpinisticki Bivak根本看不到路可到, 放棄了) - Struga - Crno Jezero
時間:  Crno Jezero -  2hrs15mins -  Veliki Medjed (Big Bear) (2287m) - 不記得時間 - Alpinisticki Bivak - 1hr40mins - Crno Jezero



– 澳洲打工度假手記 在雪梨的日與夜

2019更新:
相信大家也搜尋過現在可以轉乘巴士出市區, 只要乘搭400,420, 再轉一次巴士就去到central station, 車費也只是$3.66! 但由於400是prepay bus, 意思是只可以用opal card付款.

如果你還沒有opal card, 你要在機場買一張, 新措施最低top up 費是$35. 如果你已有opal card, 你可以在top up機top up $10.

---------------------------------

此篇講述的是由雪梨(悉尼)國內機場(Sydney Domestic airport)到雪梨(悉尼)市區, 適合由澳洲其它的地方飛到雪梨. 雪梨(悉尼)國際機場(Sydney International airport)及國內機場是分開的, 所以不要弄錯.

需要的話可看另一篇:
交通費超便宜來回雪梨國際機場(Sydney International Airport)與市區 – 窮遊雪梨系列

大家若乘搭飛機由澳洲其它城市機場到雪梨國內機場出都知道離開機場有以下幾種方法:

假設我要由機場到市區Central Station:

1. 預訂Shuttle bus (價錢若$16)

好處: 點到點, 直接載你到你的酒店/青年旅社

壞處: 要先預訂和付款, 若沒有澳洲debit card付款有可能收取手續費及因銀行匯率轉換的差額

2. 火車 (最低消費16.77到市區, 遠一些再貴一點)
(火車車資搜尋器: http://www.sydneytrains.info/tickets/fare_calculator.htm)
好處: 方便, 容易乘搭

壞處: 離開機場除的士最貴的交通

3. 巴士路線400 ($2.20-3.66, 視乎你乘搭到那一個站) (https://transportnsw.info)

好處: 3個選擇之中最便宜($3.66 bus 400可到Bondi Junction/Burwood).

壞處: 但若果你要到市區, 到最近的火車站Rockdale要$3.66, 再轉乘火車到Central再加$3.54, 合共$7-8),

巴士班次若20分鐘一班, 還要再轉火車, 費時.

那若果我真的要到Central Station最便宜的方法是怎樣?

今天我就要教大家一個最便宜的方法. 若果你以後要來這裡旅遊還是讀書/工作度假期間要轉移城市你也可以慳不少錢. 但, 這個方法是要走若20分鐘的路, 建議若你有大型行李的話就要先想清楚這個選擇合否因行李而變得不方便. 基本上路線也是平坦的, 沒有甚麼上坡下坡和樓梯.

由機場走路20分鐘後到最近的非收取機場區域費用的火車站Mascot 到Central station, 所花的費用只是$3.80而已, 這個火車站往市區的班次還要比機場站和Rockdale站要密. 若果想便宜一點, 可以在那附近乘坐巴士($3.50). M20, 310, 309 (http://www.sydneybuses.info/routes/309_20120318_map.pdf), 305 (http://www.sydneybuses.info/routes/305_20120318_map.pdf) 都可到達市區。 

路線圖如下:


這算是簡單的一條路線, 跟著車子在大路走然後在適當時候轉入另一條街道.


由Mascot到雪梨國內機場


出了Mascot火車站後轉左然後直走


到Coward Street後過馬路, 繼續直走, 右邊會看到Qantas大樓. 直走至尾然後轉右到O'Riordan Street.


遠處右邊開始看到 Ibis Hotel,


一直直走至大型廣告牌


再直走過馬路, 看到'Welcome to Sydney Domestic Airport'字樣, 繼續沿著路走.經過右邊的Mercedes-Benz店. 一直沿著路就會轉右.



然後你會看到左邊這幢大廈, 那就過馬路到大廈, 因為我們要穿過大廈


(補圖)就是走到這幢大廈


然後你就可以跟著指示走到T2,T3


由雪梨國內機場到Mascot


到了Arrival 大堂, 到行李運送帶3號, 你就會看到黃色指示public pick up, 跟著這指示走出去


剛出門口, 繼續跟


然後轉右跟著直走,

直至沒有路你就要順著彎位轉左


左邊經過Mecedes-Benz店, 就會看到很繁忙的十字路口. 過馬路到大型廣告板下.



繼續直走


分叉口, 左轉入Bourke Street




繼續直走, 到達Mascot Station

出發到下一個澳洲城市吧!
