Public Transport at the Doorstep of Crowne Plaza Melbourne
Equipped with one of the best public transport systems in the world, getting around Melbourne couldn’t be easier.
Melbourne’s extensive tram network connects the CBD and inner city with the outer suburbs with services running daily approximately every ten minutes on every line.

Trams are one of the easiest and cheapest ways to see Melbourne and if you want to explore more than the CBD you can get a myki Visitor Value pack. This pack includes a full day fare so you can travel across the entire tram network as well as discount offers to 15 Melbourne and regional tourist attractions. You will need a myki to travel outside the free tram zone. To find out more about myki, click here.
Complementing the inner city tram network, Melbourne’s train service is one of the fastest ways around the city from the convenience of the city loop going though every CBD stop, to lines terminating in Melbourne’s outer suburbs. Melbourne’s major stations are Flinders Street – the destination for most city lines, and Southern Cross, which connects passengers to outer suburbs and regional Victoria via VLine services. Crowne Plaza is located only a short walk down Spencer Street from Southern Cross station, making city accommodation easy and accessible for guests travelling from the regional Victoria.
VLine is Victoria’s regional train network and departs from Southern Cross Station. Regional travellers can alight from Southern Cross station, only minutes from Crowne Plaza Melbourne and enjoy the convenience of connecting suburban lines, trams and taxis for further travel.
Melbourne has two taxi companies that service the greater Melbourne area. Taxis can be taken from Crowne Plaza Melbourne’s taxi rank, found directly outside the lobby or arranged through reception.
City Circle Tram
Melbourne’s free city circle tram is an ideal way for visitors to see the city and travel around the CBD. The historic tram loops the city, stopping at historic sights and landmarks and is free to all travellers.
Bringing guests from Tullamarine airport, the Skybus leaves and terminates at Southern Cross Station, providing guests with connections to the CBD and suburbs. Skybus passes can be purchased from the airport or arranged through reception at Crowne Plaza. Tullamarine Melbourne Airport is approximately a twenty minute trip on the Skybus from the CBD.
