There is! But there aren't any signs to tell you... As explained on the PTV Airport Buses page, the SkyBus ticket office at the airport sells the myki Visitor Value Pack. That costs $14, and comes with $8 credit (plus a few other bits). There are no signs at the SkyBus ticket office about myki, it isn't listed on any of the prices shown, but if you queue ...

I've flown both these airlines several times. Plain and simple, I will openly say that Cathay Pacific service has been consistently better. Also, having had friends go the Cathay pacific stewardess interviews, I can say they are pretty strict on who they hire for their attendants. Generally, I would rate China Southern as acceptable. However, Cathay I would ...

There is no direct transfer, Avalon gets only a few flights a day and nobody books connecting flights between the two on purpose. The only remotely sane non-taxi option is to take the Sunbus from Avalon to Southern Cross (adult $22), and then switch to the Skybus to Tullamarine ($18). If you're really pinching pennies, there are zero public transport ...

The Melbourne airport website has a section on public transport, which basically means buses. They recommend using Skybus to get into the city centre. I've used Skybus before during rush hour going the other way, and found it fine. The price should be quite a bit less than a taxi too. It sounds like you should be arriving at the right time to take advantage ...

You can actually buy a ticket on the bus itself. I've done it, and as you can see on the official website, it is one of the published official outlets. From: http://ptv.vic.gov.au/tickets/myki/buying-your-myki/ Where you can buy a myki You can buy a myki At over 800 retail outlets including all 7-Eleven stores and selected retailers where you see the ...

http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/China_Southern/information.php depends whether you're on their Airbus or Boeing, but you can see their Economy Class pitch and seat width. http://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Cathay_Pacific_Airways/information.php Again depends on Airbus or Boeing, but personally I'd be excited about their economy class seats having power ...

According to the Airport Website, there are three hotels at the airport itself. As you're there for the night, you might want to book one and get a decent bed! It also rates well for sleeping in the airport itself if you needed to... If you have 14 hours, then that's probably long enough to head into town, see some of the city by night, crash there and make ...

There's also a vending machine within Melbourne airport where you can buy (and presumably top up) a myki.

In general you do not need a Visa when simply transiting through most airports in Australia. Transit is air-side, and whilst you do need to pass through security screening, you will not pass through either customs or immigration. This falls under what is called "Transit Without Visa". However officially there is an 8 hour time limit between scheduled ...

Melbourne -- go to the city centre, will take you half an hour by taxi or SkyTrain (I think that is what it is called but I may be wrong) from Tullamarine Airport (MEL) and then get off at Southern Cross Railway Station. From Southern Cross, take a TRAM (a quintessential Melburnian experience) to Flinders Street Station. After alighting at Flinders Street ...

From personal experience Cathay Pacific is much better than China Southern. Service is more polite, food looks much better (i never eat food on airplains so i cant say anything about it's taste) and seats are way better. Skytrax ratings: Cathay Pacific China Southern

An alternative not mentioned in @Gagravarr's answer is that you can purchase a myki online from the PTV website.

Take taxi from Avalon Airport to Lara Railway Station and from there take V/ Line Regional train to Footscray Rail Station. From there take Metro train with direction Williamstown and stop at North Melbourne Railway Station, platform 5. Go to platform 2 and take Metro train with direction Craigieburn to Broadmeadows Station, platform 2. Then take Bus Route ...

As it is, the only public transport option from Melbourne Airport (known locally as Tullamarine) to the city centre is the privately run SkyBus, which will set you back $18. The Airport is connected to the city by freeway, and you can expect congestion during peak hours. Alternatively, you could take one of the suburban public buses which connect to the ...
