We'll be arriving in Melbourne Airport (Tullamarine) T2 at 06:30 in the morning, but our flight to Hobart (from T1) won't take off until 12:45. We've been told we'll have to collect our hold luggage, but can't check bags in until 2 hours before the Hobart flight. I don't know this airport, but some other airports I've been in don't have any seating, shops or restaurants until you get through check-in. Are we going to be sitting on our luggage in the check-in hall for 4 hours until check-in opens, or are there any areas in Melbourne airport where we could sit in comfort, and even get a drink?
Advice would be appreciated, please, as we'll be arriving from UK via DXB and will have been travelling for almost 22hrs! Thanks, Robin.
