Default Sydney to Melbourne +Airports

The quickest way is flying (around 1hr 30 mins).
You can do it by bus or train, but it takes much more longer around 10 hrs
by train.

Train info: http://www.countrylink.info/
Cheap airfa http://www.virginblue.com.au/ or check out Qantas
http://www.qantas.com.au/ .
The airfare sometimes cost a lot cheaper than bus/train. Book early and look
for special.

cheers people!

Looks like its only 35 to 40 by air

Is it possible to just turn up to the airport on the day and buy tickets
(sydney -- melbourne) rather than buy them in advance?

or are they usually booked up (meaning i have to book early myself!)

It's definitely possible, provided you choose an off-peak time. It's
also usually much more expensive because you get no discounts of any
sort. Advance booking is usually cheaper.
If you need the flexibility to change flights or booking times, make
sure that is possible with your booking. That usually costs a bit more
than the rock-bottom prices with inflexible rules.

Cheers Alan

PS How are you getting here? you may be able to extend an
international ticket with a positioning leg for a lesser cost.

we are going by plane ;o)

Just not sure what company or anything!

Ideally we want a ticket that goes

UK to Sydney (start journey)

Syd to Melbourne (a few weeks into journey)

Melbourne to the UK (end of journey)

Lot's of flights by different carriers go Europe - Asia - Sydney -
Melbourne - Asia - Europe. So get on of theses tickets Europe -
Melbourne and stop over in Sydney for a while. And when you are not sure
about the carrier take one of the asian (Singapoore, Malaysian or Emirates)
