Melbourne airport is approximately fourteen miles from the city centre, so anyone who is catching an early flight will still be able to make the trip into Melbourne if they want to enjoy a quick shop or an evening meal. However, if you are on a short stopover and pushed for time, then you will find this modern transport hub offers plenty of amenities, including a great selection of eateries, numerous entertainments and a good selection of shops. It is therefore easy to while away several hours without being stuck for something to do.
Inevitably, Melbourne Airport has plenty of hotels and B&Bs serving the millions of visitors that require accommodation close to the airport. However, if you need to stay a little longer - perhaps making multiple journeys across Australia - then there are also serviced apartments available in the vicinity. These properties offer a much more relaxing, home-from-home environment, whilst still offering many of the perks of a traditional hotel, such as room cleaning and concierge services. TheSqua.re carry a range of such properties, each selected for its high standard of interior and range of mod-cons.
There is plenty to see and do in and around Melbourne Airport, but what you decide to do whilst will depend largely on the reason for and duration of your stay. If you are on a short term stay, or need to remain close to the airport, perhaps for a short stopover, then you will find the airport complex itself offers several places to eat, some entertainment and a collection of designer shops.
There are also a few landmarks and places to see closer to the airport, including vineyard tours, a museum or two and some areas of natural beauty. Many of these places can be reached via shuttle bus services, or alternatively by renting a car from one of the providers at the airport itself.
Alternatively, if you will have a little more time you can venture into the city proper. Melbourne is a modern metropolis and here you will find all manner of sights and attractions, with its wealth of museums and galleries as well as plenty of opportunity to sample world-class retail and dining opportunities.
Being a major transport hub, most of the eateries in Melbourne Airport are chain restaurants. Hungry Jacks is just outside of the main complex, and is a lively bar and grill serving a range of Australian specialties. Inside the airport, O’Brien’s Irish Bar has a range of simple dishes, or there’s Sushi Sushi for those seeking something a little more exotic. Of course there are also famous global chains, such as Mcdonald’s and Subway.
The airport has a fairly typical selection of shops, offering luxury fashion brands and high-end electronic goods. Rip Curl Tullamarine is an Australian-born surf brand and the airport store is one of its premier locations, whilst Surf Dive n Ski Melbourne Virgin also sells local fashions. There are also several fashion brands on offer, including Burberry, UGG Australia and Michael Kors.
For those on a short stay, places like the Park Royal hotel offer swim and spa services, which can be a great way of unwinding either before or after a long flight. Alternatively, just outside the terminal area is Tullamarine is Woodlands Historic Park, where the Woodlands Homestead, dating back to the 1840s, still stands and is open to the public. For those looking for something a little more active, UrbnSurf park will soon be open, offering urban surfing just outside the airport!
The airport itself is one of Australia’s most well connected, with international and domestic flights running day and night. It is also well served by public transport - including VHA airport shuttle, Sky Bus and Star bus all offering quick and cost effective ways of getting to the city centre. Alternatively, those who are perhaps travelling to more remote areas in the Melbourne suburbs can opt for one of the many taxi and private hire firms operating out of Melbourne airport.
Naturally, Melbourne Airport is home to several aviation firms, including A1 Aviation Services, Abr Aviation, and C&H International Freight. The nearby area of Tullamarine also plays home to several engineering firms and manufacturers, such as Chandler Engineering, Inner City Cabinet Works, Interior Solution Manufacturing and Ltq Engineering.
