Flights to Adelaide from Melbourne
Airlines that fly from Melbourne to Adelaide are Jetstar, Virgin Australia and Qantas.
There are four airports in Melbourne, with Melbourne Airport (MEL) at Tullamarine by far the busiest, and the major airport for all domestic and international flights. Melbourne Airport is approximately 23km to the northwest of the city centre. If you’re departing on a domestic flight from Melbourne Airport, you’ll most likely leave from T1, T3 or T4; Qantas arrives and departs from T1, T3 is reserved for Virgin Australia passengers, and all remaining airlines fly from T4. While there is no direct rail link between the airport and the city, there are a number of reliable options for transport such as taxi, rideshare, shuttle bus, public bus, private transfer service – even helicopter if you feel like a splurge. A typical taxi fare from Flinders Street in the Melbourne city centre to the airport in non-peak hour traffic takes around 30 minutes and will cost between $45 and $62.
Adelaide Airport (ADL) is the gateway to South Australia and everything this state has to offer, from the Barossa Valley wine region to Kangaroo Island and the spectacular Limestone Coast. The airport is a hub for eight international airlines, five domestic airlines and a number of regional and charter airlines. Everything is under one roof at Adelaide Airport, which is Australia’s fifth busiest airport, servicing about 8 million passengers a year.
The weather in Adelaide does vary, with some hot weather in summer and cool winters. There’s something special to experience any time of year, so the best time to travel to Adelaide depends on your agenda. February and March is busy in the city, with arts and sporting festivals bringing many visitors. Autumn and early winter is a beautiful time to enjoy a meal by an open fire, something many restaurants and wineries offer. However, rainfall in Adelaide is highest during the cooler months with June averaging the most rainfall, so be prepared by packing for all conditions.
Summer in Adelaide can be very warm, but the city also has the lowest humidity in Australia, which helps to keep you comfortable. From late December to early February, Adelaide temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius, so avoid staying out in the sun for extended periods. Seek out indoor activities, and cool off with a swim in the afternoon.
Appropriate clothing: Shorts and a t-shirt
Don’t forget: Sunscreen, a hat and swimwear
As tree-lined walkways become tinged with red and orange leaves, the weather in Adelaide becomes even more pleasant. Autumn in Adelaide is characterised by warm, sunny days and crisp nights, particularly towards the end of the season. Adelaide Hills usually drop a few degrees cooler, so pack a jumper if you’re heading out to explore.
Appropriate clothing: T-shirt and light cardigan
Don’t forget: A jumper and long pants for cool evenings
Winter in Adelaide often has warm sunny days, with nights cooling down to an average of 7°C. It’s best to wear layers during the day as light winds can make the air feel cooler. Rainfall is most common during winter months, so carrying an umbrella or rain jacket is always wise.
Appropriate clothing: Long pants, a jumper or jacket
Don’t forget: An umbrella and a scarf
As the parklands turn a vibrant green, spring in Adelaide means gardens are in full bloom. Nights can still be cool, averaging between 9-13 degrees Celsius, with temperatures dropping once the sun goes down. Once daylight saving begins in October, the days become warmer, averaging between 21-24 degrees Celsius. Low rainfall makes this a great time to visit.
Appropriate clothing: Shorts with a jumper, or pants with a t-shirt
Don’t forget: A hat and sunscreen
