All the info is on the website, a bus will take us around melbourne, departing and returning to the Fringe hub in North Melbourne.

Yippee, I've been waiting for this since we first heard about it.

I'm getting married on Sept 25th, so will join you on one of the later dates.

Off to do my booking.

Hi Joanne - I have just found the Melbourne Fringe site and it says that pickup is in North Melbourne and then finishes in South Melbourne. Is this correct? Where is Butterfly Club in South Melbourne? Logistics of transport to and from is my only concern.

Joanne said...

The Bus will pick up and drop off at the Fringe Hub - North Melbourne, for those who wish to finish at the Butterfly club they are welcome to go from there, otherwise the bus will drop remaining passengers at the Fringe Hub - North Melbourne. However the tour officially finishes in south Melbourne. hope thats enough info?

hi joanne
a friend and i are coming along to the op shop tour! i was just checking, i bought my tickets online through the butterfly club. is it ok if i bring the recipt that was emailed to my mum (who paid for them) on the morning of the tour (rather than having to go to the butterfly club to pick them up!)
thanks a bunch!

I AM SO GLAD YOU ARE COMING - Please introduce yourself to me on the bus.

YEs it is fine I think David from the Butterfly Club is sorting this out and we will just work from a door list so no need to go and collect yoru tickets. Just turn up at the Fringe Hub in North Melbourne with your reference number, before 1025.

Thanks again.
