Melbourne Airport

Melbourne is connected to countless domestic and international destinations by two main airports. The much larger airport is located at Tullamarine; located only 20kms from the Melbourne city CBD.

There are a variety of airport transfer options available; including taxis, airport shuttles and bus transfers. Customers taking a taxi will also have to bear the cost of airport surcharges and the CityLink tollway fees.

Melbourne Airport Tullamarine Flights, Address & Map

Before the Tullamarine Airport was built, the Essendon Airport was the main airport for the city. In fact, it was the sole international airport in Melbourne. Later, the local government decided to build another airport to meet the needs of airlines and visitors.

This airport includes new terminals, executive lounges, duty-free shops, restaurants, bars and rest areas. This airport has four main terminals; each with separate facilities. While terminal 1 used to handle all the domestic departures and arrivals, terminal 2 is designated for all international flights. Later, the terminal 3 and 4 were built for Virgin Australia and Tiger Airways. In total, there are 16 international and 40 domestic gates at Melbourne Airport.

To reach the airport, Melbourne Airport introduced Skybus transfers from the city in Southern Cross Station. In addition, the airport is connected via various other local public transport options. Some city buses and shuttles also pick up guests from hotels and apartments within the city area.

    • Hi Robert,

      Your sat nav should be able to search for “Melbourne Airport”. Terminal Drive is the road leading into the airport. Try “Arrival Drive” which links off Terminal Drive. There is plenty of signage to direct you to the parking spaces at the airport, so perhaps refer to the signage rather than the sat nav.

      There are clear “arrival” and “departure” signs and parking for T1, T2 and T3 are all together (as the terminals form one large building).

      Good luck!
      Jess
