Why choose to stay near Melbourne Airport?

Being one of Australia’s biggest and fastest growing cities, it’s no surprise that Melbourne’s Airport is the second largest, busiest airport in the country. The suburb of Melbourne Airport is 19 kilometres north-west from the CBD and has accommodation options ranging from large hotels on the airport’s doorstep to smaller, budget lodging.

The airport has the Tullamarine Freeway running north-west to south-east, and heading south opens up other freeways and main roads such as Calder Freeway, Western Ring Road and Melrose Drive. With a hired car, you can explore the city of Melbourne to your heart’s content.

You might think there isn’t much to do in the vicinity of Melbourne Airport besides shopping at duty-free stores inside the airport, but there are nearby parks to explore, several dining options, and some fun activities to try.

Parisian cuisine closer to home

Staying at one of the Melbourne Airport hotels such as the Park Royal or Holiday Inn is convenient for those travelling early the next day or hosting a business meeting in one of the hireable conference rooms. They also have their own restaurants for guests and members of the public. The Park Royal has café and bar options for relaxed dining, as well as being home to the Airo Restaurant. The food at Airo is inspired by French cuisine, where diners can enjoy à la carte or multiple course meal options. Vargas Restaurant at the Holiday Inn offers modern Australian cuisine made from local produce.
