What is the best part of your Melbourne commute to work?

Everyone travels into work by different methods of transport – car, train, tram, bus, cycling or walking. That’s not even considering the different times of day and night everyone starts their jobs.
But no matter how you make your way to work, there’s always a highlight. Maybe it’s a favourite cafe or shop, a funny or favourite sight you see regularly, or simply a really pleasant part of the journey.

  1. Watching the boats bob up and down and listening to the gentle lap of the water . I live in Docklands where 30% of residents walk to work and nearly all absolutely love living there despite what you read in the media.

  2. Reading my kindle and listening to what everyone else listens to on their iPod… And also listening to some of the conversations of the school kids – a self reminder of how the world is changing! I love it. Topics are so different to back in my school days!

  3. Getting out of bed, walking into the kitchen, making a great coffee, and starting work without having to leave the house.

  4. Talking to the barristas when I wait for my coffee. I go to different coffee shops on the way to work every morning because there are so many to choose from in Melbourne. I work on Exhibition Street and sometimes I catch the bus, other days I tram or train and my walk from the tram, train or bus to the office tower I work in changes every morning. It is a great way to see the Melbourne CBD from various points of view and meet the city’s eclectic coffee drinkers.

  5. Driving over the Westgate and viewing the city with a sunrise background. Never gets old. makes me wish there was pedestrian access (guided if necessary) over the bridge.

  6. A cruizy bike ride t the City. Hot shower, secure bike parking and a freshly made hot chocolate at BikePark on Banana Alley.

  7. Luke: When pulling out of Box Hill station on the train, city-bound, there’s a brief 10-15 second window where you can look out onto the surrounding suburbs. If the weather and sunlight is just right in the morning, it’s quite beautiful to look at.

    I’m now based in the city (so now I would as the 10 min walk door-to-door) but I agree with Luke. When I was a Suburbanite the Epping/Hurstbridge Express when it comes out over Cliffton Hills and over Collindwood and Richmond into Jolimont give some of the best views of Melbourne Suburbs.

  9. Get out at Flinders Street station, go over to the Vietnamese Sandwich store and order a Grilled Pork with extra chili sauce. THAT is the best part of my commute (when I’m working).
