Where are you based?

If you want to play turf cricket in the metro area you need to be looking at Victorian sub-district cricket association (VSDCA) or victorian turf cricket association (VTCA)

Where abouts are you in Melbourne? I can put you in touch with Carlton cricket club, i know a few people there, we've had overseas from there and some of our youngsters have played there. Also know some players from plenty cricket club a bit further out of the city. Just depends where you are based.

I was going to play for port Melbourne until plans changed a few years ago. Seemed a great set up and don't think they are too far from you, not totally sure though. Worth checking them out

Cricket Australia have a site for finding clubs for kids and seniors. You just put in the postcode. Its mainly for kids, but they did say in a radio interview it covers seniors too.

http://www.playcricket.com.au/club-finder/?postcode=3000

Use that and the mycricket link above to see their performance and gradings. Im not from Victoria but that is the best info i have
