If You Begin Your Adventure from a Melbourne Domestic Airport

Australia's main domestic airlines service the large centres with regular flights.

The major airlines are:

  • Jetstar
  • Qantas
  • Tigerair
  • Virgin Australia

Most flights will depart from Tullamarine, Melbourne's major airport. Some flights, however, may also depart from Avalon. Some of these flights may offer better deals, saving your touring dollars.

Melbourne's airport has changed considerably these days with the building of the easily accessible T3 and T4 terminals.

Shop here for cheap airline flights for domestic travel on any of these airlines.

"I found it easy driving to the airport and finding the Long Term carpark for the T4 terminal. Once there, it was a breeze securing a park and catching the lift down to the departure lounge. So different these days. I managed to book the car space online so as to save time and used my credit card to enter and leave once I was back in Melbourne after my break. Parking for 4 days was very reasonable.
No stress!"

Parking is a lot easier at the melbourne Airport if you need to leave your car for a few days. And the cost is very reasonable. Terminal T3 and T4 also have a bus drop off point. If it is convenient to use public transport, why not do so.

Packing for one of Melbourne Short Breaks is easy to do.

Please note ...

When booking your airline ticket make sure that you have checked for the allowed luggage capacity. Nothing like saving on a cheap airline ticket only to find that you have incurred a hefty charge for being overweight.

These days you can travel for a short period of time with just a few interchangeable items, a couple of pairs of undies, a tooth brush and toothpaste and a few personal cosmetic items as most places you stay at supply towels, shampoo, conditioner and soap.

A backpack, handy for touring with, and carry on luggage (usually weighing in at around 7kg) is quite sufficient. No need to even check your luggage in. Saves time and money. These days you can purchase a carry on suitcases that doesn't weigh much, allowing you to pack more. There are scales at the airport for you to check your luggage weights.
