Arrival to Melbourne
The two airports in Melbourne are located at the north west part of the city, one is just for domestic flights, the Avalon Airport, the other one,
the Melbourne Airport is the second busiest in Australia, its postcode is 3045 and is also known as Tullamarine Airport.
Has three terminals, one for international flights and the other two for the domestic ones. The main international airlines are:
Tel. 13 13 13 in Australia
Tel. 13 67 89 in Australia
Tel. 13 15 38 in Australia, or 03/8341 4901
Taxis from the Airport to the city cost around $40 and $45 and can take more than 25 minutes depending on the traffic.
The bus service from the Airport to the city is the Skybus (Tel. 9670 7992), takes also around 25 minutes to get to the city.
Trains in Australia are very comfortable but they are expensive too, in Melbourne the Spencer Street Railway Station is where country and
interstate trains arrive, sometimes the travel agency pick up the passengers from the terminal so it would be more easier if you contact
one of them.
Melbourne is an amazing city and it's worth to take a walk through it, you can visit the central area in about 20 minutes, but you'll need
a map so it's better to get one before you begin your walk, you can purchase one at the bookstores. Another great way of enjoying the
city is renting a bike and visit it, the cyclist have to share the way with pedestrians but the tour will be enjoyable, one of the most
interesting tours is the Yarra River Trail that goes from the mouth of Yarra River to Westerfolds Park.
Melbourne has a well organized city transport known as Metlink, despite of this the connection with the suburbs are still difficult.
In 19th century the main ways of transport in Melbourne were the trains and trams, fortunately the system developed into what is now.
Public transport in this city is more than just a way to move from one place to another but it's also a tourist attraction for visitors.
