Brilliant service and clean bus ride from the city

Had an overall good experience. There was a long queue when I arrived at the terminal. But it took only 10 minutes to get into a bus and start the ride to the airport. Best and cheapest way to get to the airport if you’re travelling alone. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Easy and hassle-free way to purchase tickets. Recommended.

I used Experience Oz because I got a discount code, but I discovered that the site has a lot of experiences/activities that I'm Interested in. So, I'll be definitely checking those out. I'll be checking out the skydive and great ocean road trips soon.

Bus from Southern Cross station in the centre of Melbourne to the main Melbourne airport

Bus arrives often, around every 10 to 15 minutes at peak times, and takes the motorway for most of the route so it usually arrives on time. It takes a slightly longer route than it did previously at the moment due to some roadworks but still arrived at the airport in under 30 minutes.
