Journey: Melbourne Airport to Clayton

Clayton is a popular Melbourne suburb that attracts many visitors from the airport each year. To get from Melbourne Airport to Clayton, there’s plenty of transport available, too. Melbourne Airport is located in Tullamarine, and sits about 18km northwest of Melbourne CBD. Clayton, on the other hand, sits some 18km to the southeast of the CBD. That means you can utilise the wide range of transport options that travel towards the city.

However, public transport often involves transferring from one service to another. As a result, it can be time consuming and a little inconvenient. Luckily, Hughes has an alternative: affordable, door to door service. Our services operate at all times of day and night, and we take you from your location, to the doorstep of your destination.
