Getting around Melbourne

Self Drive: From the airport to the Pullman Melbourne Albert Park – take the Citilink tollway and follow directly into the city, taking the Kings Way Exit and following it toward St Kilda and the southern suburbs. Kings Way veers right into Queens Road, then on your left-hand side as you come to Albert Park Lake is the Pullman Melbourne Albert Park. For valet parking (approx $31.50 per 24 hours) pull in to the entrance from Queens Road, otherwise turn into Lorne Street and park underneath the hotel in the Mercure self car park. (approx $16.00 per 24 hours, 1 exit).

Trams: If you are in the city and taking the tram, take the number 3, 5, 6, 16, 64 or 67 and get off at stop 27. Turn right into Lorne St and head toward Albert Park Lake – the Pullman Melbourne Albert Park is located on the next corner, with the entrance on Queens Road.

Taxis: A taxi from Melbourne Airport to the hotel will cost approximately $60.
