It consists of four terminals, and is known as an internationally renowned flight facility. If you’re travelling from Melbourne Airport to Toorak, then you have no shortage of options at your disposal. You could travel by bus, train, tram, or taxi, but all come with their own drawbacks. For example buses are time consuming, and they aren’t always the most comfortable or efficient way to travel.

Pick Up and Other Information
Travel times in and around Melbourne are notoriously changeable, thanks to the city’s large population of drivers. During peak periods, the streets of the inner city (including Toorak) are flooded with commuters, and that can easily cause slight delays to your travel times. Generally, it takes us 45 minutes to get from Melbourne Airport to Toorak, but in heavy traffic it is often closer to 50 minutes. By the same token, it can take us a little less time to travel outside of peak periods. Often, it takes around 40 minutes when conditions are favourable.
Melbourne Airport has four different terminals, with each dedicate to a unique and important service. The first terminal hosts Qantas’ domestic and regional services, with departures on the first floor, and arrivals on ground floor. The second terminal is the international terminal, and it facilities overseas flights from a number of multinational carriers. Terminal three is home to Virgin Australia airlines, as well as REX Flights from regional parts of the country. Finally, terminal four offers budget domestic services from carriers such as TigerAir, Jetstar, and Air North. Each of the terminals share one thing in common, though: terrific transit facilities. There are restaurants, retail opportunities, and plenty to keep you occupied before your flight departs. There is also free Wi-Fi across all terminals, which means you can keep connected in transit.
