Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside
Pros: plugs, seats with armrests, vending machines, toilets
Cons: no sleeping spaces, poor wifi if working, automatic doors.

We did great ocen road. Arrived 10am to drop off hire car. Flight was late at night. Need to reat from journey No couches, had to sleep on floor. No showers, we had gone a couple days roo many. Only vending machines on landside. Airside shut early. We were asked if we wanted to grab food but had one meal. Poor/if working wifi. Plugs for charging. I you were to stay for an hour it's fine you'd have plastic seats with arms and vending machine and be able to get a o airside if there in opened hours. Only advantage was due to waiting patiently and slweping on floor. When bording came around we were offered extra leg room. Airside was basic quiet few shops.

You CANNOT sleep here

Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room

So, instead of paying for only a few hours in a hostel I took a bus from the Centre of Melbourne to Avalon Airport the night before my 6am Jetstar flight to Sydney. Why Avalon and not one of the two bigger airports, you ask? I've been asking myself the same question for almost two years. Thinking this bus ride to Avalon would be fairly brief, I was grossly mistaken. It would appear that Avalon was in fact over 45 minutes bus ride away from Melbourne(and as far as I was aware not near any civilisation whatsoever) Sitiing by the check in on one of the benches, getting somewhat comfortable, I was told by a member of staff that Avalon Airport would indeed be closing and I would not be able to sleep inside. After asking again and practically begging, I was still at this point without a place to sleep. Though the staff at Avalon were totally useless:they offered me a place to sleep in the security guard's office. So it had got to midnight or one o'clock and I was picked up my a man in a car and driven about 3/4 minutes to some building where the securtity guard was doing his night shift. I was told to stay in the waiting room next door, which had armrested chairs, so no sleeping on those and a very uncomfortable floot, which was what I had to settle for. Now this could hae been fine If not for the door being slightly ajar and nothing I could do about it. So that plus my clothes being rather damp from four straight days of Melbourne rain, left me with an awful cold on my flight back to Sydney and in an even worse mood. My advise is to NOT sleep in this airport because you CANNOT sleep there!

avalon closes at night

by greyman (November, 2007)

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure

jetstar-late night arrival and then early morning departure to perth. no choice but assumed Avalon would stay open with such scheduling but out on my ass. I found a roadhouse(closer to Geelong than Melbourne) on the highway who had seem it all before.
