Whether you want to visit the Shrine of Remembrance or the Melbourne Zoo, ebookers can help even the most budget-conscious planner create a memorable holiday.

Arriving in Melbourne

Flights to Melbourne land at Melbourne Airport, which was originally named Tullamarine Airport. Domestic flights use the Melbourne Domestic terminal, while international flights arrive at the Melbourne International terminal. Both are located at Airport Drive, Tullamarine, Victoria 3045, Australia. The airport is 15.5 miles north of downtown Melbourne. International flights to Australia can take 20 hours or more, so travellers should dress comfortably in preparation for the long flight.

Getting to Melbourne

There are several options available to travellers to get from the airport to downtown Melbourne. Taxis are available outside the terminals. There is a $2 fee to use the taxis from the taxi ranks, and a $3 fee for pre-booked passengers who use taxis located in the premium lot located opposite Terminal 1. The fare will vary by location. For travellers who need a taxi between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., the taxi fare must be prepaid. Another option is the Skybus. This bus runs directly from the airport to downtown Melbourne. Skybuses run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays, and depart from the airport every 10 minutes. An adult travelling one-way will pay $17 or $28 for a round-trip ticket. The family fare for two adults and one to four children is $38 one-way and $65 round-trip, while the family fare for one adult and one to four children is $24 one-way and $40 round-trip. Fare for one child is $6.50. If you prefer to drive yourself, you can select from six different car rental agencies: Hertz, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Thrifty and Redspot.

Melbourne's weather does not vary too much throughout the year. The warmest month is February, where average temperatures reach 26°C, but it is possible that summer temperatures will exceed 38 degrees. The coolest month of the year is July, with temperatures averaging 13 degrees. Melbourne receives most of its rain in November. If a traveller is in Melbourne during the summer months, then typical summer clothing should be appropriate.

Visit the Land Down Under

When you decide to book your visit to Australia, let ebookers help you plan your trip. From cheap flights to Melbourne, to finding the best hotel and attractions, we can help you plan a holiday you will remember fondly for years to come.

  • Melbourne When to Go

    Summer Down Under runs from December through February. January and February are prone to dry, hot spells, however, so prime time here remains the mild autumn (March to May), when temps range from 63 to 75 degrees and rainfall is at a minimum. Spring (September to November) is also appealing, with temperatures in the mid-60s, but rainy days can prevail.

    No matter the time of year or the weather, Melbourne bustles with festivals and activities. Held each March for the past 20 years, the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival celebrates the area’s top chefs, restaurateurs, winemakers, and sommeliers with more than 250 events. The Melbourne Festival, held during two weeks in October, is a world-class arts fest that has a full docket of dance, music, theater, visual arts, and film. Also held in late October is the Melbourne Cup Carnival, a week’s worth of thoroughbred racing, fashion, and entertainment that captivates all of Australia. Most of the country stops to watch the Emirates Melbourne Cup Day, the carnival’s focal point. In January, the weeklong Festival of Sails—Australia’s largest keelboat regatta—comes to town.
