Pakenham to Melbourne Airport – enjoy an iconic part of Victoria with Hughes’ transport

Pakenham is a satellite suburb in West Gippsland, which is a little over 50km from Melbourne’s centre. It’s a popular area, too, as demonstrated by its rapid growth over recent years. Increasingly, Pakenham is seeing developments expanding, along with schools, infrastructure, cafes, and more.

However, it retains the Gippsland community feel, with community herb gardens, run without chemicals by volunteers. Perhaps the great attraction, though, is the Pakenham sports and aquatic centre. With recreational opportunities brimming from this vibrant new suburb, it’s no surprise that Pakenham is a popular destination for many!
