I am from Melbourne, and I have to say, you have a packed itinerary
One more question: There is a congregation of camera stores in Elizabeth Street in the Melbourne CBD, between Bourke and Lonsdale Streets. Compare prices and then make them do you a deal, they are reasonably competitive. Always helps if you are purchasing more than one item. Ted's is probably the cheapest overall. Enjoy your trip.
I have the CamRanger which is capable of Intervelometer capability, but I want a cheap back-up timer remote, just in case the battery in CamRanger runs out of juice ... Does anyone know a good camera store in Melbourne where they sell cheap remote timers for 5D MK III?
There's one up Little Bourke with good prices (Camera Lane). The bigger ones in Elizabeth St can be a little more expensive, as they have the better locations. Worth checking out.
For night pic's either the Mornington Peninsula or Bellarine Peninsula (down near Geelong). Either way, it's about 1.5hrs drive, mostly on freeways. Just bear in mind that it's summer holiday season, and those 2 locations are jam packed. Ocean Grove or Barwon Heads would probably be the pick for me. As it is, I'm about an hours drive NE of Melbourne and I get pretty clear skies. From my backyard....
Trams are handy, if you are staying in the City. Just be aware of the ticketing system, Myki, which almost works
Lygon Street (Carlton), is a good place to eat. Lots of choice in many different styles of food. Easy to get to by tram from the City.
I'll try to think of other things, as they pop into my head. Have a great time
