In a few days will be celebrating Xmas in London and then going to visit family in Melbourne Australia and celebrating New Years eve. How do the two cities compare in terms of costs, sightseeing, and ease of transport? WE'll be in London one week in hotel near Hyde Park and three weeks in Melbourne near Brighton.

I think Melbourne is cheaper than London for visitors.

According to the locations of where you will be staying - in London will be in the greater city center area vs. Melbourne it will be more like a suburb location where one would take the commuter train into the center of Melbourne.

For London it will be mid winter, in Melbourne of course mid summer, going from one directly to the other you're going to feel it! London has very easy transportation options, don't know about Melbourne.

Melbourne is a nice city but not nearly as much to see as London. But if you are staying with family they will no doubt keep you entertained. I think the prices are probably quite similar. You need to get out of Melbourne and see the Great Ocean road. It would be a good time to go over to Tasmania for a few days or, as others have said, go to Sydney.
