Flights to Melbourne: practical information

Cheap airlines to Melbourne

As Australia's second largest city, Melbourne sees it's fair share of excitement! Melbourne Airport (MEL) is located 22km north-west of the city and welcomes passengers off flights from many major Australian cities, New Zealand, Asia and direct flights from as far away as Canada, USA and Hawaii.

When to book flights to Melbourne

The weather in Melbourne is as unpredictable as it is in England. In fall and spring, it's not uncommon for it to change within seconds. October is known to be the wettest month, but Melbourne receives half of the rainfall that Sydney does.

  • Peak season: Both summer and winter.
  • Low season: Spring and autumn are usually the quietest times to visit Melbourne but also the best.

Flight duration

Flights with one stopover take around 29h.

Experience Melbourne: what to do, what to see

Melbourne is chic, it's classy. The city spreads quite wide and a rental car in Melbourne is an ideal way to get around. While Sydney may have a famous Opera House, Melbourne is without a doubt the culture capital of the country.

Essentials in Melbourne

The G: In other words the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where locals worship their favourite sports stars. It's an icon in this cricket-loving city and is considered one of the best sports venues in the world. For a real local experience while on holidays in Melbourne, try to grab tickets to a game while you're in town.

St Kilda: This corner of Melbourne is a gem. It's palm-lined streets run parallel to the beach, a strand of golden sands worth boasting about. Despite heavy development, the beach area is a lot like Brighton.

Royal Botanical Gardens: The South Yarra gardens are free, so there's no excuse not going to one of the best botanical gardens in the world. Sprawling alongside the Yarra River, get up close to smell the roses, or at least look at Australia's unique flora up close.

Accommodations in Melbourne

You can find a wide range of hotels in Melbourne, thanks to it being Australia's second largest city and a student hot spot. Budget hotels can be found in two areas in Melbourne, first the city centre and in St. Kilda, a seaside suburb. Apart from here, check out Fitzroy and South Melbourne as well.
