Melbourne Airport sits in the outer suburb of Tullamarine, about 25km north west of the Melbourne city centre. That means it is just 20km or so from the University of Melbourne. So, if you’re travelling from one to the other, what are your ideal transport options? There’s public transport, including buses, which can take you from Melbourne Airport to the University of Melbourne. But they’re not always the quickest options.
You could find yourself waiting a while if they’re delayed, or if they need to make a number of stops along the way. There are taxis, but they are also subject to taxi rank queues, and metered pricing which can be expensive on longer trips. Luckily, there are more direct options on offer: a door to door transfer with Hughes! At Hughes, we offer direct transfers at any time. Simply book with Hughes, and enjoy the comfort of a premium vehicle, and the service of a professional chauffeur.

The University of Melbourne is well known as one of Australia’s premier public research universities. It was founded in 1853, which makes it one among the country’s six elite ‘sandstone’ universities, as well as a member of the prestigious ‘group of eight’ universities. As a testament to its stellar history, it has seen ten Nobel laureates pass through, which is the most of any Australian university. Its sprawling campus offers peace for staff and students alike, among the hustle and bustle of inner Melbourne. And, if you need to get around the university and it’s surrounds, we can help. Simply book a transfer with Hughes, and let us know where you want to go, and when. We’ll take care of the rest.
