Hi, A friend of mine and I are coming to Melbourne for a few days and on the 6th of January we need to get from the Melbourne zoo to the airport...we will have luggage and we also both have 6 month old babies..

What is the best way to do this?



Hi Tammy,
Hope you enjoyed your stay in Melbourne.

Would you believe I am in Queensland until the 4th January!

Gosh traveling with infants may I suggest that you have 2 options...

a) Melbourne's maxi taxi, large enough to transport luggage and prams is the most comfortable way to go.

For the cost of same visit this website...


or for a more less expensive option then Melbourne Public Transport can provide you with all you need.

b) The Melbourne Zoo has a very convenient train station, the Royal Park. Catch the train into Southern Cross Station in the City.

From here you can then ride the Shuttle Bus to the Melbourne Airport

For information on train times visit Metlink

The Shuttle runs quite frequently, click onto this link for information on cost and times.


I recently rode the SkyBus and I was very impressed with how comfortable and practical the ride was.

Hope that this information will make it easier for you to navigate.

Enjoy your few days here in my hometown, and I hope that you will return to enjoy more of what Melbourne
has to offer

Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
