Myki is Victoria's ticketing system for train, tram and bus services throughout the state. Myki is a smart card that uses prepaid credit to pay for your fare. A blank myki costs $6 and can be purchased from newsagents and railway stations. Topping up a myki can be done online through Public Transport Victoria website, or bus drivers can load up to $20 cash into the myki.

Once the card has credit, you simply swipe the myki sensor when boarding and departing all trains, trams and buses.

Public transport concession cards

Some students are eligible for a 50% discount on all public transport in Victoria, and to receive a concession, you must purchase a VPT concession card. Students who do not have a VPT card and request a concession fare can be fined by patrolling transport officers. A Federation student ID card does not entitle you to a concession fare.

VPT cards cost $9; students must complete the VPT concession form and provide two passport photos. Generally, full-time domestic students are eligible. International students, part-time students, post-graduate students and apprentices are not eligible for a discount.

Arriving by Air

You can arrive at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport, the leading international airport in Melbourne and the second busiest airport in Australia.

The fastest way to get from Melbourne Airport to Wimmera is to drive. Taking this option will take 3h 15m.
