More About Flights to Melbourne

Melbourne Australia's Best Times to Visit

Melbourne's peak seasons are in the spring and summer, November through January, and flights and accomodations should be booked well in advance. November introduces Melbourne to the spring season, when flora and fauna are in bloom and locals and travelers alike are out getting some sun. The cheapest times to fly are mid-April to late June, even though the most desirable time to visit is in the spring. 

The Easy Way to Get to Melbourne

The Melbourne Airport is located in the town of Tullamarine and offers some of the most affordable flight fares you can book. Virgin Australia offers a stylish lounge with complimentary food and beverages for members or single visit entries. Qanta's Airways Limited is noted as Australia's best domestic airline, offering the most flights between Sydney and Melbourne. For the lowest fares, book your flight with Jetstar Airways.

Affordable Transportation from Melbourne Airport

To reach the city center from the airport, which is approximately 25 minutes away, spend a few extra dollars on the Skybus Express Bus Service, which runs 24/7, versus riding the regular shuttle bus with less consistent pick-ups. To save even more money, purchase a two-way ticket if you plan to return to your destination through Melbourne Airport. 

Places to See in Melbourne

Visit the best attractions in Melbourne for low prices and beautiful sites. For local attractions just 20 minutes from the airport, Eureka Skydeck is the highest viewing platform in the Southern Hemisphere and a great location for overseeing the entire city, especially at night. Be sure to stop by the Queen Victoria Market, which is closed on Mondays, to seek out local fruits, vegetables, restaurants, and souvenirs. For travelers staying longer, rent a car and take a road trip to The Great Ocean Road, which holds Australia's most scenic vantage points.
