Melbourne has long been lauded as Australia's culture capital, stitching together an endless ream of sumptuous restaurants, corner cafes, museums, art galleries and rollicking live act venues. It's arty, passionate and well within your budget. Pack your bags and Student Flights will do the rest with our cheap flights to Melbourne.
Most airlines fly into Melbourne Tullamarine Airport (MEL), around 23 kilometres from the CBD, or Melbourne Avalon Airport (AVV), which is a 40-minute drive from the city. The Skybus Super Shuttle spirits travellers to the heart of the CBD in 20 minutes, or you can opt to take a taxi to your accommodation and the city centre. There's also an Airport Bus between Avalon Airport and Southern Cross Station with drop-offs at CBD hotels by arrangement.
Cheap Melbourne flights depart from all Australian capital cities and major hubs. Travel times vary between 1.5 and 4 hours, depending on your location and the domestic airline you are flying with.
