Journey: Melbourne Airport to Ballarat

Melbourne airport is situated about 23km to the north-west of Melbourne’s CBD. That places it about 115km from Ballarat. As a result, travellers looking to get from Melbourne airport to Ballarat often have to look outside the conventional taxi trip to get there. Of course, there are plenty of options to get from Ballarat to Melbourne airport and vice versa. There are long-distance buses, and there are trains. However, they can take a considerable period of time. You’ll have to find your way from one bus stop to another, and wait as other passengers embark and disembark throughout the journey. There’s always hire cars, but they’re expensive. On top of that, navigating a new city can be stressful and time-consuming.
