I and my wife have planned for a short Australia tour, just covering Sydney as we have only 5 days in our hands. But it looks like during our return journey we will have a 14 hour stopover time at Melbourne airport before the departure of our flight to Singapore. Perhaps we did not look carefully before making the booking.
What can we do in such a situation? This is during the night and we might end up the whole night at airport, and if it were during the day, I believe, we could have gone for a short city tour.
Now, rescheduling the departing flight, if we do it before we arrive in Australia, seems costly to us. But does anyone know if after arriving in Australia, if we choose to re-book the departing flight one day later (like catching up the next flight, which will give us 1 full day) is going to be cheaper? I know once I rescheduled my US flight after arriving in US and it cost me less than rescheduling up front before the travel. Does it work with all airlines and across the world? Does anyone have any experience specifically in Australia?
What are the suggestions for spending a short duration in Melbourne?
