From Melbourne International Airport (Tullamarine Airport):

The St Kilda Skybus departs from outside Terminal 2, in the middle lane (cross the taxi lane to the purple direct bus departure area). The cost is $19 and will bring directly to us at 17 Carlisle Street St Kilda. Please check departure times at https://www.skybus.com.au/st-kilda-express-service/timetable/

If you are arriving outside these times then we suggest catching the Sky Bus to Southern Cross station in the CBD. This bus runs 24 hours a day and will drop you off in the city. Cost is $21.

From Southern Cross Station
Catch the number 96 St Kilda Beach Tram. (You will need a MYKI card purchased from 711 outside Southern Cross station, cost is $6 and you will need to top up $5 for the journey). The journey will take about 20 minutes. You then need to get off at Luna park/Macdonalds stop and walk away from the direction of the beach down Carlisle Street to Number 17. After a minute you will see Base (big red glass building) on your right side.

If you arrive outside of tram operation (approx 12.30 - 5.30am) then catch a taxi, it will cost you around $20 from the city.

A taxi from Melbourne airport costs about $75.

From Avalon Airport
Catch the Sunbus (there is one bus that meets every flight). The cost is $22. The bus will drop you off at Southern Cross Station. Follow directions as above from the Station. http://www.sitacoaches.com.au/avalon/rates_avalon.shtml

We look forward to welcoming you to Base St Kilda!
