Map and Directions


From Tullamarine Airport (Domestic and International)

The easiest way to get to us from the airport is on the Skybus. It leaves from outside the terminal and goes directly to Southern Cross Station. Between certain hours you can request a transfer from Southern Cross to our door or we are just one Stop on the train, or an easy 20 minute walk. You don’t need to book and it leaves every 15 minutes 24 hours a day 7 days a week and will set you back $18 per person one way.

A taxi from the airport will set you back between $50-$65 depending on time of day and traffic.

From Avalon Airport (Some Jetstar Flights)
SITA coaches meet every flight from Avalon Airport and they are $22pp. You can get more information on their website.

Public Transport
You can catch any Bus or Train direct to Flinders St Station which is directly across the road from us!
You can also catch the Free City Circle Tram if coming from elsewhere in the CBD and this stops right at our door!
