Marvel Stadium, previously known as Etihad Stadium, is one of the busiest and most famous multipurpose stadiums in all the southern hemisphere. Its grand design, a clear standout against the stunning harbourside. Situated around 23 kilometres from the Airport, your average travel time from Melbourne Airport to Marvel Stadium will be approximately 35 minutes. When considering how best to get there, you have multiple options available. Taxis and hire cars will do the trick, though they can become quite costly.

The fairly priced Skye bus service, departing from Melbourne Airport, will take you directly to Southern Cross station, which is within comfortable walking distance to Marvel Stadium. On the other hand, if you’re pressed for time and a lengthy ticket queue and crowded bus ride doesn’t appeal to you, we recommend a direct, chauffeur-driven transfer with Car Australia. Our meet and greet service will have a professional driver collecting you from inside the terminals and whisking you away directly to the stadium, so that all you have to worry about is finding your seats once you arrive.
