The most popular arrival destinations in Australia are the major cities on the east coast, and cheap flights to Sydney and Melbourne are easy to find. Kingsford Smith in NSW and Tullamarine in Victoria are both world-class airports with all facilities including a Wi-Fi service, access for disabled people, currency exchange, ATM cash machines and information kiosks in both domestic and international terminals.
Frequent bus shuttle services run to both cities, and limousines and taxis are available. Kingsford Smith also connects to the city via rail. The service is regular and takes a short time. Tullamarine offers the very affordable Skybus service every ten minutes for the 25 km trip to the city centre.
Depending on which city you travel to, you'll find there are a good number of transport options available. All major cities host reliable train and bus services and many car rental options.
Australia's extensive railway network can take you between the major cities and most places in between, but where there's no rail station, you can book a cheap flight to a regional airport and hire a vehicle, or book a coach from a major city to get where you want to go. All capital cities in Australia have a wide variety of accommodation options, which range from 5 star luxury hotels to backpacker hostels, and everything in between.
