If you’ve not spent much time in Melbourne Airport before, a few navigational tips might be helpful. The most important thing to know about Melbourne Airport is that it consists of four terminals. There’s a dedicated Qantas domestic terminal, an international terminal, a Virgin and REX terminal, and a budget carriers’ terminal. If that seems like a lot, there’s no need to worry. All four terminals are well serviced by collection areas. There are kerbside pick up points, disabled access zones, parking areas, and waiting areas. Simply let us know the details of your flight when you book, and we will ensure that we meet you in a convenient space.
The MCG is the largest stadium in the Southern Hemisphere. In fact, it’s the tenth largest in the world! Needless to say, it attracts its fair share of big events. From cricket and AFL, to rugby league and union, the MCG is the unofficial home of Australian sports. But that’s not all it offers. The MCG also attracts some of the world’s most well-known acts, and has seen concerts of epic proportions. As such a cultural icon, it’s only a matter of time before you end up there if you haven’t already! So why not book the most reliable transport option: a transfer from Hughes.
