Melbourne airport lies approximately 25km from the CBD. You can expect to pay around AU$60 for a standard taxi from the airport to the city. A much cheaper alternative is the frequent SkyBusservice, which runs every ten minutes from the airport to Southern Cross station (with free hotel shuttle bus service from the station to most CBD hotels) and costs AU$18 each way.
By public transport
Melbourne has an excellent public transport network consisting of trains, trams and buses. Within the main CBD area, tram travel is free at all times and is a great way of getting to and from the event venue, as well as exploring the city sights. If you are travelling outside of the CBD, you will need to purchase the public transport smartcard known as Myki. For more details on the public transport system, visit Public Transport Victoria. (Note that the public transport option between the airport and the city is the SkyBus service.)
