Journey: Melbourne Airport to Lorne

If you’re travelling from Melbourne Airport to Lorne, you have several transport options available. On the budget end of the spectrum, there’s public transport. Buses and trains are efficient and cost-effective ways to get from Melbourne Airport to Lorne. However, there’s some distance separating both destinations. That means your trip could involve numerous buses and trains, and also considerable time.

There’s also hire cars, but they come with an often significant price tag and the inconvenience of having to navigate a new area. Taxis are another option, but their approach to pricing means that long-distance trips are often unaffordable.
