Journey: Melbourne Airport to Warrnambool

Melbourne Airport consists of four distinct terminals in the outer suburb of Tullamarine. It’s about 23km to the north west of Melbourne city centre. Warrnambool, on the other hand, is over 250km to the south west of Melbourne’s centre. So, if you need to get from Melbourne Airport to Warrnambool, what are your options? You can travel by bus, rail, or taxi. However, those options aren’t always ideal.

Public transport is indirect. It has lots of stops, and one service won’t always take you all the way to your destination. Taxis are direct, but they charge using metered rates. That means the costs can often be prohibitive. Luckily, there’s an affordable, quick, and comfortable alternative: direct transfers from Melbourne Airport to Warrnambool. With Hughes, that’s exactly what you get.
