Journey: Melbourne Airport to Flinders Street

Flinders Street offers one of Australia’s most iconic images. It is also home to Melbourne’s epicentre, with tens of thousands of people passing through every day. Needless to say, it’s a popular destination for travellers. For those arriving in Melbourne via the airport, Flinders Street is often the first port of call. But how can you get from Melbourne airport to Flinders Street?

There are buses that will get you there, as well as trams. But they are often time-consuming methods of transport. There are taxis as well, but they can be more expensive than you expect – often without the service to back it up. That’s why we think a limousine transfer from Hughes is the best option. Hughes offers door to door service, at any time of the day and night. The only thing that matches our service, is our value for money.
