Five ways you can tell you are in Melbourne, not Sydney

Part Four: Hook Turns
To accommodate trams, and allow them to move smoothly through intersections, some of Melbourne's city streets require motorists turning right to move to the far left to wait to turn. (Don't forget we drive on the left, so normally would position ourselves in the centre, or just left of centre, of the road to turn right). It's easy once you get the hang of it, but the first few times can be a bit unnerving.


  1. I'm so relieved you said "we drive on the left" because I could just see the car on the left making a right turn across one or two lanes of traffic. Whew! Glad you cleared that one up -:)

  2. LOL, I think I'll take a cab! ;)
