Thread: Getting round Melbourne

    Getting round Melbourne

    So I'm doing a cross over to rEvo with Rubens of IDC scuba in Melbourne on the 30th of July, and I was wondering if any locals had recommendations of how to get from the airport to Sorrento without a hire car.

    I'm guessing taxi from the airport then train would be easiest? That seems to be googles opinion..

    Anyone heading that way on the 29th?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Hire the cheapest small car you can get at the airport..

    It is 140km each way... around 2hrs drive in off peak times.. a taxi will cost you 60 each way from the airport to the cbd which is the same as a car per day.. public transport will be a train to frankston and then a bus for another hour.. probably 3-4 hours each way in total and not simple.. and you will want a car in sorrento to use while you aren't diving so you can look around..

    Just be conscious of toll roads each way.

    Car. Distances are way too far to easily cover by public transport.

    Cruisin Oz Cars.

    It's a third party agent but the price was hard to turn down. About 360 NZD for 7 days.
