Located in the south east region of Australia, Melbourne is not only a sprawling metropolis but is also regarded as one of the most exciting cultural cities in the world. Melbourne is constantly voted as one of the world’s most liveable cities – and with its amazing restaurants, vibrant youth culture and many modern shopping centres; it’s not hard to see why.
Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport is a shining example of modernism combined with traditional values of service and courtesy. This busy air hub is located approximately 30km south of the capital, and is currently undergoing substantial re-development. Plans for a new airport hotel are underway, as well as an extension of the Tehran metro service to the main terminal. Passengers flying from Tehran with Qatar Airways will find the staff friendly and helpful, and the well-laid out terminal building easy to navigate
Parking and transportation
Transport to and from the airport is primarily provided by taxis and hire cars. Taxi journey time to the airport is around 90 minutes, depending on traffic. Shuttle buses link the airport to the nearest metro station and with Tehran’s domestic airport, Mehrabad International Airport. If you’re driving to the airport, follow the Tehran-Qom Freeway (Route 7), which links to the airport via a separate access road. Short-term parking is available next to the terminal building. Long-term car parks (2 and 3) are a little further out, but there is a regular free shuttle bus service running to the terminal.
Arriving in Tehran
Passengers flying from Tehran with Qatar Airways depart from Terminal 1 A and B zones. A comfortable lounge area is available for first class and business class travellers, which offers snacks and drinks as well as relaxation areas.
Facilities and amenities
Imam Khomeini International Airport has a good selection of facilities and amenities. Although there are no business facilities or meeting rooms available on-site, there are plenty of conference facilities in nearby hotels. Banks and currency exchange facilities are available (note that credit cards are not widely accepted in Iran) and free Wi-Fi is available in the Departure lounge. A selection of retail outlets sell locally-produced Iranian goods, and a duty free shop is also available (no alcohol). A popular restaurant offers a selection of traditional Persian dishes, coffee and light snacks.

Melbourne’s reputation as a cultural centre is well-earned. Festivals, events and shows bring everything from live theatre to music and art to this thriving city, while a host of attractions keep visitors entertained all year-round.
Flinders Street Railway Station is probably the most recognisable landmark in Melbourne and is a typical example of colonial-era architecture. The main entrance has a cluster of clocks hanging over it, and is a meeting point for locals.
Eureka Tower is the tallest residential building in the Southern Hemisphere. Climb to the top (if you have a head for heights) to get some spectacular panoramic views of Melbourne.
For all the hustle and bustle of everyday Melbourne life, head to the Queen Victoria Market. Huge and colourful, you can get just about anything you want here, including unusual souvenirs and antiques.
Flowing through the heart of the city is the Yarra – known as the "river that flows upside down" because of its brown colour, it’s actually a lot more scenic than it sounds, with some beautiful walks and picnic spots along its banks.
