Melbourne International Airport

As reluctant as you may be to leave the warm subtropical client of sunny Melbourne, flights from this area depart from Tullamarine Airport, better known as Melbourne International Airport. In this busy airport that carries nearly thirty international lines, including as British Airways, Air France, Delta, Air Canada, and American Airlines, you’re sure to find great rates and deals through ebookers. Melbourne Airport is located approximately fourteen miles from the city proper, so set aside at least thirty minutes to be sure you’ll make your flight on time.

Airport Parking in Melbourne

Pickup and drop-off are simple at Melbourne Airport, which offers a free twenty-four hour courtesy bus for all passengers and services every terminal. Enjoy economy rates in the long-term parking lot, which costs only $11 a day for a one-week stay and $9 a day for a two-week stay. For a slightly higher rate, you can use the multi-level covered long-term lot, which charges approximately $20 a day for a one-week stay. However, for the summer season and weekends, the airport frequently offers heavily discounted rates for the multi-level lot using vouchers you can obtain from the airport website. If reserving flights through ebookers has made you accustomed to convenience, consider using the Express Car Park, literally located directly in front of the T3 and T4 terminals. This option uses automated payment machines set up in the parking lot and costs $56 for one day.

Ground Transportation in Melbourne

An affordable option for reaching the airport from downtown is the SkyBus, which runs every ten minutes, costs $17 for a one-way trip, and offers limited onboard storage for your luggage. Several other local buses leave from different sections of Melbourne, but rates are typically double the cost of the SkyBus. If you’re traveling with a heavy luggage load, expect to pay at least $60 for a taxi fare from central Melbourne.

Restaurants at Melbourne Airport

You’ll have no trouble finding a place to dine at Melbourne Airport. With cafes in every terminal, stopping for morning coffee, a hot breakfast or delicious snacks is a must. Try Villa Hut or Café Arome for a tantalizing cappuccino and a bite of pastry. If you have special dietary needs, Able Baker Charlie, Healthy Habits, and Boost Juice offer fresh organic and gluten-free meals. A nourishing boost is sure to make your flight more pleasant as you depart from Melbourne.

Flights to Sydney originate all over the world, and a variety of transport links serve the airport. Buses are available, and Route 400 will take you directly into the city. The Airport Link train service is another simple option. The speedy, double-decker trains can ferry you to the city centre in a little over ten minutes. Hiring a car from one of the six different providers in the terminal buildings is also easy.

Once you have left the airport behind, it is time to get out and explore the city. Sydney is one of the most popular destinations in the world, thanks to its combination of glorious beaches and world-class landmarks. The first thing to do is to head to Sydney Harbour Bridge.
