Arriving at Australia

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.

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.
