Please post in here if you plan on travelling over east for a game or two this season or for those of you already over east whether you plan on coming to any games @ Subi etc.

I reckon this might be the year that I do the trip to Melbourne for a weekend of footy. Only problem is my knowledge of Melbourne is not that good, as whenever I've been there before, I've been pretty much chauffeur-driven around and put up in hotels around various parts of the city at the company's expense.

So a travelling partner who knows their way around would be handy...

I'm hoping to attend my first match at Subiaco against Geelong in round 11. I've never even been to Perth/WA. If all goes to plan i will be in town for 5 days.

Sadly, I have to miss the Brisbane trip this year. I think last year is the only time I have seen a losing game there, so the Gabba has pretty fond memories for me. But I have Sydney and Adelaide (Port) locked in already. And three Perth trips locked in, Hawthorn , Adelaide and Brisbane. I may even sneek over for the North Melbourne game at the last minute if I can squeeze a shift change. Does Geelong count as a trip from Melbourne ?

Gotta keep the freq flyer points up somehow. :D

heaps of easy transport in melbourne so its not that hard to get around without a car. How far in advance can you purchase footy tickets online?
Matching cheap fares to the games is something to consider

Going to try and get to Brisbane for round one, and if the travel gods are smiling on me, I should get to the shifting surface for the Collingwood match. By the way, how bad did that field look after AC/DC?

For Eagles H&A games in Melb it's probably not necessary to buy game tickets in advance, I would have thought ... maybe good insurance, but if it's anything like Subi games, you can only get them a couple of weeks in advance.

I am pretty sure reserved seats for games in Melbourne go on sale 3 or 4 months before the game,(got front row seats last year for Collingwood v Essendon),and most games involving the Eagles would be walk up on the day,but Collingwood,Carlton or Essendon at Etihad,I would recommend reserved seating.
