As one of Australia’s biggest airports, you may discover some of the best prices for flights to Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific when you travel via Melbourne.
Melbourne is an incredible place for a stopover or longer stay, but the airport is quite a long way from the city centre. If you have an early morning flight or are just spending one day in Melbourne, then you may want to consider staying at an airport hotel in Melbourne.
While there are quite a lot of hotels located within the airport grounds or nearby Tullamarine, there are only a few I would recommend my family and friends stay at for their comfort, price, and convenience!
