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.
