Best way from airport to Art Series the Blackman hotel

Hi all,

We are coming over to Melbourne for the first time this week for 3 days. We are arriving at Melbourne main airport around 7PM, could anyone please advise the best way to get from airport to hotel (there will be 2 of us only, no kids)

Thanks in advance!

By "best" do you mean cheapest or easiest?

You can catch Skybus from Tullamarine Airport to Southern Cross, catch the 109 tram up Collins St to Swanston St and then catch a tram (16, 3, 6, 64, 67, 72 and 5 ) and get off at stop 23 directly outside the hotel.

Or you can catch a taxi from Southern Cross to the Blackman about 3.5 km.

Or you can get a taxi direct from the airport (27km) about $70

Or you might be hiring a car and you'd have to get into town via the Tullamarine freeway (tolls apply).

Have a great time!

Thank you very much for the information! Skytrain then taxi sounds like a good option.

Any idea of approximate time from airport to hotel?

Many thanks again!

Hi again,

About 20 minutes on the bus to Southern Cross that time of night. Does depend on the roadworks near the Ring Road, then about 5-10 minutes from the taxi rank.

It's SkyBUS, not train. Do not wander around Tullamarine looking for a train station! ;)
