The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is superbly located on the banks of the iconic Yarra River within walking distance of "The City" centre. Around Melbourne itself are inspiring day trips to the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula wine regions, the Great Ocean Road, the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island, historic Sovereign Hill and Healesville Sanctuary.
Further afield, Melbourne’s airport offers easy access to attractions, including Sydney, Uluru (Ayer’s Rock) in the outback, the Great Barrier Reef and the wonderful beach resorts of the Whitsunday Islands.
The main airport serving the city is Melbourne Airport (also referred to as Tullamarine Airport), which is the second busiest in Australia. Its a major hub for many international destinations but is also the most used connection with Sydney. Getting to the "CBD" or Melbourne city centre is easily connected with an express bus service plus the usual taxi services.
