Melbourne is a vibrant, multicultural and elegant city, named the world's most livable city in the past few years. It's also known as the sporting and cultural capital of Australia, so don't be surprised by the various sports facilities, as well as museums and galleries. Diversity is what makes Melbourne special, so you can see different cultures grouped in neighbourhoods.
Most popular attractions
Federation Square is the starting point for sightseeing and a central place for various events. The Royal Botanic Gardens are one of the top attractions in Melbourne and one of the finest. Melbourne has a great cultural scene, and we suggest visiting the National Gallery of Victoria and the Melbourne Museum and Royal Exhibition Building.
Melbourne has an efficient integrated public transport that includes rail, tram and bus services. The Melbourne Metro is the second largest in Australia with 16 lines that connect the city centre with the suburbs. The tram network is the largest in the world and covers a large city area. Three hundred bus routes operate in the Melbourne area daily, while on Friday and Saturday night buses run, as well.
Melbourne has excellent freeway network and roads, but it's also very congested during peak hours. It's not recommended to travel by car in the city, but for day trips the most convenient choice would be to rent a car in Melbourne. There are car rental offices at the airport and in different locations in the city.
The Melbourne taxi service is an efficient way to navigate the city. It's an easy way to travel to any suburb in Melbourne, like Blackburn or Burwood. Melbourne taxis are regulated and have a unified look.
Melbourne airport transfer options
Melbourne Airport is the second busiest in Australia and central hub for arriving in the state of Victoria. It's located in the Tullamarine suburb, around 23 km from Melbourne city centre. There are regular bus lines, shuttle, taxi and private transfer services to the city.
The bus stop at the airport is in Terminal 4, where you will find a few public bus lines that run to the city. The most popular bus is route 901, which runs from Melbourne airport to Frankston and makes stops at Broadmeadows Station. There are regular shuttle buses from Melbourne Airport to other destinations in Victoria, as well.
Official taxi companies run the Melbourne airport taxi service. The airport taxi fare is charged by the meter and may depend on the destination. Additional charges may apply on public holidays and when taking roads with pay tolls.
