A good idea. Consider it done! (There is a sticky pointer back to this thread, over on Crag and Beta section).

A compilation from a couple of recent threads.
Feel free to add corrections and updates as necessary.

>We are arriving in Melbourne. We are trying to get to Arapiles without renting or buying a car. Please help with advice on how to do it.

>V-Line train and bus to Horsham (30 km from Arapiles) operates daily - think it's about $25 per person one way. During the week there is a connecting bus from Horsham to Arapiles in early afternoon but on weekends you'll have to hitch (or take a taxi but that's an expensive option and sounds like not on your radar).

and Wendy replied:
>Take V line train/bus combo Southern Cross Station to Horsham Coach Terminal. Hitch to Arapiles. Try and pick up someone with a tent. Failing that, bivy out, if it rains, move into the picnic shelter. Meeting people there will be easy. other accomodation options involve hitching to the mt each day. Try really hard to pick up. Seriously, it is normally fine to bivy, later this week might get a bit wet, but the picnic shelter is huge. Or you can stop at Kmart in horsham and buy a tent for $20.

>Additional advice is that a shuttle bus runs from the Horsham coach terminal. If you go from melbourne you get into horsham about 11:30. you can leave your stuff at the bus station. Go shopping in bulk and return to bus station. This means you can buy as much shit as you want without having to worry about carrying it anywhere. The shutle bus leaves around 2pm? and can drop you off directly at arapiles.

ajfclark added:
>2:20pm. Timetable with phone number to get the return bus is linked above. You have to ask the driver to stop at Arapiles.
