Journey: Melbourne Airport to Apollo Bay

Melbourne Airport is one of the largest in Australia, and it is located in the outer suburb of Tullamarine. It comprises four separate terminals, and lies some 23 kilometres away from the city centre.  That means it’s over 200km from Apollo Bay. So what is the best way to get from Melbourne Airport to Apollo Bay?

There’s public transport, such as buses and trains. But they can take a fair while, especially over long distances. They also require a number of stops and transfers, in many cases. That can end up being time consuming and expensive. Taxis are another option, but they are also quite expensive. They charge using a metered system, so the final expense can be quite significant over long distances. That leaves the standout option: a direct transfer from Hughes. Hughes offers a variety of luxury vehicles, along with door to door service at any time. With Hughes you get a combination of value, luxury, and convenience.

Here’s how long it normally takes to get from Melbourne Airport to Apollo Bay

There’s some distance to cover to get from Melbourne Airport to Apollo Bay, which means the trip mostly takes around 2 hours & 30 minutes. However, if you’re travelling at peak times in the morning or evening, there’s a chance you’ll encounter some traffic. That can cause your travel times to increase a little to about 2 hour & 50 minutes. Of course, the opposite applies if you’re travelling late at night, or early in the morning. During those slower times, the trip usually takes just around 2 hours & 10 minutes minutes or so.

Melbourne Airport has four terminals – here’s how to find your Apollo Bay transfer among them

To accommodate the large volume of passengers that pass through, Melbourne Airport has four terminals. The first is a Qantas regional and domestic terminal; the second is the international terminal; the third is for Virgin and REX flights; and the fourth is for budget domestic carriers. The terminal you’ll arrive in will depend on the airline you fly with, and the airport you left from. Luckily, all terminals are very well serviced by a number of pick up, drop off, and waiting areas. There’s disabled access, too, for those who need it. And if you find yourself with time to kill before a flight leaves, you can enjoy free Wi-Fi along with abundant dining and retail opportunities!

Apollo Bay is worth exploring – do it in style with Hughes before you return to Melbourne Airport

Apollo Bay is a coastal town in southwestern Victoria, which is popular among tourists from nearby, interstate, and abroad. It has a number of prominent events each year, too, including the Apollo Bay Music Festival and the Great Ocean Sports Festival. But that’s not all it’s famous for. It is also well known for its natural beauty. From winter to spring, you can witness migratory whales passing, including southern right whales, which pass close enough to be seen from shore.
