The Great Ocean Road is an Australian landmark that attracts countless travellers from interstate and abroad. Most of them travel through the airport to get there, as well. In fact, Melbourne Airport receives among the highest number of passengers in Australia, and it’s located about 23km northwest of the city centre. So what transport options are available to all those passengers when they arrive?
There are the usual public transport options, like buses and trains, which are affordable and relatively easy to use. But they’re not exactly the quickest options. There are also taxis, but they use meters to charge, which means they can be too expensive over long distances. Luckily, the perfect solution exists in a Hughes transfer from Melbourne Airport to Great Ocean Road.

All road transport around Melbourne can be affected by peak hour traffic. So, if you’re travelling during peak hour in the morning or evening, there may be a slight delay in your trip. Don’t worry, though, because it won’t be too long. Usually, the trip takes about 130 minutes. In bad traffic, it may be closer to 170 minutes, so that’s worth keeping in mind if you have appointments to keep. On the other hand, if you’re travelling off peak your journey may be as quick as 110 minutes. However since this journey is offered as a tour, please keep in mind the total time for the tour is around 8-10 hours.
Melbourne Airport is unique in that it has four separate terminals in its one Tullamarine location. Luckily, all four terminals are very well-organised. Getting from one to the other is easy, and finding your transfer from Melbourne Airport to Great Ocean Road is easier still. Each terminal is serviced by a combination of kerbside collection/drop off spaces, disabled access spaces, and parking or waiting zones. Better still, you won’t need to walk more than one hundred metres or so from the terminal to find your waiting transfer!
