Journey: Melbourne Airport to Collingwood

Collingwood lies about 23km to the southeast of Melbourne airport. As a result, getting between the two can take a while – at least, when you rely on public transport. Public transport is a great, and cost-effective way to get from Melbourne airport to Collingwood, but it’s not always the most efficient, or the best value for money. When you travel in groups, it’s often cheaper to opt for direct transport, such as a taxi. But even taxis don’t offer the best value for money, and you often have to spend a long time waiting for them to arrive.

That’s why we recommend a more comfortable alternative: direct transfers from Hughes. At Hughes, we keep our costs low and our service high. Our pricing remains on par with alternatives, such as taxis. However, with a fleet of chauffeur-driven premium and luxury vehicles, our standard of service is unrivalled. Our services are direct, private, and available twenty-four hours a day.

Our Fleet

Whether you are looking for a luxury limousine or premium sedan experience or want to move a large group easily and in comfort, Hughes can help. We have vehicle options for 1 – 61 passengers and an extensive fleet to accommodate all your transport needs.

Collingwood is a Melbourne icon – here’s why it’s worth the trip from the airport

Visitors to Collingwood are often struck by its historical features. Home to a range of important historical building, the inner city suburb offers a truly unique atmosphere. In addition to that, it also offers the incredibly retail of Smith Street, where you can also find some of the country’s leading nightlife. That’s not all Collingwood is famous for, though. A lot of people know Collingwood for its football club, the Magpies. The ‘Pies, as they are known, have been active in Collingwood since 1892, making them one of the oldest football clubs in Australia. But whether you’re soaking in the nightlife, enjoying the retail, or working late, you’re going to need reliable transport. With Hughes, it doesn’t matter where you need to go, or where you want to end up. As a part of our door to door service guarantee, we will collect you from anywhere in Collingwood.
