Transport and Accommodation

Accommodation

We strongly recommend booking accommodation as soon as possible, as rooms are already filling up due to other events.

Rates are approximately $180 to $300+ per night, depending on availability and special offers. For better rates, conditions may apply, such as rooms being prepaid, non-refundable and non-cancellable. Check details when booking.

Breakfast may be offered in a restaurant at the hotel. The cost will usually be additional to the room cost.

Room sizes may be small. They start at 15m², but many are around 20m² (or a bit larger). Check websites.

Accommodation options: The accordion below lists a number of accommodation options within easy commuting distance of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC). We strongly recommend that you do not drive into the Melbourne CBD, as parking is very expensive. A discount code or link to our event is available at some hotels but also check daily rate specials if applicable. At some hotels, the code also applies for one or two nights either side of the Synod dates. For more information about these options, email Keryn Middelmann.

Local transport

From the airport

Sky buses run regularly between the Tullamarine Airport to Melbourne City, departing every 10 minutes during peak times. Tickets are available for One Way or Return and can be booked online www.skybus.com.au

Access to MCEC

Most hotels listed on this page are a 10- to 20-minute walk to the Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), which is just south of the Yarra River. There is a free tourist City Circle Tram that runs around the city. Also, there is a Free Tram Zone spanning most of the CBD north of the Yarra River, where no travel card is needed. We strongly recommend that you do not drive into the Melbourne CBD, as parking is very expensive. 

We are grateful for the support of the LLL, the major sponsor of Convention of General Synod.
