Journey: Melbourne Airport to Port Melbourne

Getting from Melbourne airport to Port Melbourne is possible in a range of different ways. You could opt for public transport, with many buses available to make up the distance. But public transport can be slow and uncomfortable, with lots of time spent lugging luggage between stops. There’re taxis, in the alternative, but they have their drawbacks too. Taxis can be unpredictably priced, and they’re often inundated with passengers. That means you can spend a long time waiting in the taxi rank.

At Hughes, we are committed to door-to-door service. We will pick you up from anywhere in Port Melbourne, or drop you off anywhere. All you have to do is arrange it in your booking. We find this service is useful for our clients, as it allows you to enjoy all aspects of Port Melbourne, without worrying about transport. Some of the things you can enjoy include parklands, bayside beaches, and the restaurants and cafes of the iconic Bay Street. However, our favourite aspect of Port Melbourne is the ambience. Port Melbourne has industrial origins, with many industrial areas still operating there today. But a lot of Port Melbourne’s warehouses have been converted, which makes for a terrific urban atmosphere.
