Plan Your Melbourne Holiday

There is certainly plenty to see and do when you travel to Melbourne, as well as the chance to sit back and relax. Just outside the city is the Phillip Island Penguin Parade, an afternoon attraction where you can see penguins walk down to the beach and even walk amongst them. Nature is never far away in this green city.

Melbourne’s summer runs from December to February, when temperatures rise and the city is warm. Melbourne can also be enjoyed in the spring and autumn, as leaves on the park trees change colour beautifully. Reserve your tickets to Melbourne with the weather in mind, as swimming in the sea is best in the summer. Finding cheap hotels in Melbourne will not be a problem, due to the many types of accommodation on offer in the city and suburbs. Flight deals to Melbourne are available throughout the year, so be sure to check our Deals section before confirming your holiday.

Major Airports in Sri Lanka

Reserve your flights from Sri Lanka and fly from Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA). The airport is in the city of Hambantota and is 35km from the city of Colombo. Both Terminals 1 and 2 serve international passengers, while the third terminal operates exclusively for domestic services. As the main airport in Sri Lanka, Bandaranaike Airport has excellent road and rail links. Ratmalana International Airport (RML) also offers international flights from Colombo itself.

Airport Transportation in Sri Lanka

Trains to Bandaranaike Airport can be accessed using the Airport Express Rail, which runs directly from the centre of Colombo. You can catch a shuttle bus to Bandaranaike Airport from some hotels so be sure to enquire when you book. The extensive public bus system in Colombo does run to the airports, but you may prefer to hire a taxi to Bandaranaike Airport, which will take only 13 minutes from Colombo city centre via the new, high-speed Katunayake Expressway.
