How to transfer from Melbourne Airport

Trip to Melbourne Airport or Avalon Airport:

If your flight to Ayers Rock departs from Melbourne (MEL), you can take the rental car and drop it off at the airport (follow the signs on the road).

If you're flying from Avalon (AVV), you'll have to drop the car off in the city and take the bus to the airport from Southern Cross Railway Station (50 minutes, 22 AU$).

From Melbourne airport to the city centre:

From the Melbourne airport, Skybus will take you to Southern Cross Railway Station in 30 minutes for 18 AU$ (taxi: 85 AU$).

If you arrive at the airport in Avalon, Skybus will drop you at Southern Cross Railway Station in 50 minutes for 22 AU$.

If you are staying at our Smart Choice Hotel, once in Southern Cross, go to Spencer Street, cross over to the sidewalk in front, and continue walking towards the left. The hotel is 2 minutes away.

If you stay at another hotel, Skybus has a transfer sercive at no additional cost (06.00-22.30 weekdays, 06.00-19-00 weekends). Just check in at the Hotel Transfer Service booth at the Station and a SkyBus mini-bus will drop you at your hotel/motel.

You can buy Skybus tickets online or upon arrival at the terminal ticket booth.
