All of the terminals have a good range of places to eat and shop. In Terminal 1 you'll find Salsa's, Hungry Jack's and Hudson's Coffee with shops such as Ripcurl, WHSmith, Zoodle and Sunglass Hut.

You can reach the city centre by bus, taxi, or by hiring a car at Melbourne Airport. The express Skybus Shuttle leaves from terminals 1 and 3, with a 20 minute journey time to Melbourne's CBD. The bus also offers a complimentary transfer service to some hotels in Melbourne. There's also a Greenbus shuttle: pre-booking is required.

Practical Information

You need to show photographic ID on domestic routes within Australia. For Aussies this doesn't necessarily mean a passport, but we recommend any Brits visiting the land down under carry theirs. Check your carrier's website for a full list of accepted ID's on domestic routes. Try to arrive at the airport about 90 minutes before flight departure, and definitely no later than one hour before.
