Journey: Melbourne Airport to Southern Cross Station

Southern Cross Station is a transport hub in Melbourne’s CBD. That places it some 23km away from Melbourne airport. That means many travellers are faced with the question of how to get from Melbourne airport to Southern Cross Station. There are plenty of options, too. There’s the Skybus, which offers frequent services from Melbourne airport, and will get you to Southern Cross Station. But it’s not a private service, and it’s certainly not the fastest option. Then there’s taxis – probably the most common choice.

But taxis are priced unpredictably – you never quite know what it’ll cost you. On top of that, you can face long waits in the taxi rank queue. So what’s the best option? A Hughes transfer from Melbourne airport to Southern Cross Station will take you privately and directly to your destination, at any time. With pricing on par with the others, why wouldn’t you?
