Sometimes referred to as Australia’s cultural capital, Melbourne is not only a bustling modern metropolis but offers its visitors plenty of cultural intrigue – from colourful street art to world-famous institutions such as the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and the Forum Theatre. This combined with many luxury shopping centres and premium hotels, makes Melbourne an attractive destination, whether you are travelling for business or pleasure.
The Nigerian capital of Lagos is one of the busiest air transportation points in Africa, and Murtala Muhammed International Airport has developed in the last few years into an efficient departure point.
Passengers flying from Lagos with Qatar Airways will find this a friendly and welcoming airport, where staff greet you with a smile and are more than happy to make the start of your journey a pleasant one.
Parking and transportation
The easiest way to travel between Lagos and the airport is by taxi. These are plentiful and quite cheap. Some hotels in Lagos will also arrange pre-booked limousines on order.
Some buses run to both the international and the domestic terminal, but it is important to check that you are on the right bus, as the two terminals are a mile apart and there is no shuttle between them. Limited car parking (750 short-term spaces) is available.
Arriving at Lagos
Passengers flying from Lagos with Qatar Airways depart from the international terminal. There are executive and VIP lounges available for business class and first class passengers.
Facilities and amenities
Murtala Muhammed International Airport has a good selection of amenities for travellers. Wi-Fi is available in the executive and VIP lounges, and there is a meet and greet lounge, prayer rooms for devotions, and access for less able-bodied passengers.
A choice of retail outlets sell both locally produced Nigerian goods and products such as jewellery, electrical goods and perfume, as well as a duty free area for ticket holders who have cleared customs.
On-the-go snacks, coffee and light refreshments are served in the lounges and from food outlets around the terminal, and by vendors in the food court. ATMs and currency exchange services are also available.

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.
