How to Reach Melbourne, Australia

The Easiest Way to Reach Melbourne


Melbourne has two airports which are well connected with major cities across the world. There is a daily flight to Los Angeles and multiple flights to Asian cities like Dubai, Doha, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur. The train, bus and road network is well connected within the country.


Melbourne has one of the world’s largest tramway networks; they travel all over the city and are a sight worth checking out. The City Circle trams travel a tourist route, taking in landmarks and sights of the city. There is also a very efficient network of trains, taxis and buses, including night rider busses in certain areas. Driving can be slightly confusing, due to the fact that driving where there are trams in unusual to most people and the trams take priority, terrain in certain areas requires an off road vehicle such as a 4x4. For something different you might consider taking a riverboat cruise on the Yarra River, which cuts through Melbourne.
