Melbourne is a cosmopolitan, multi-cultural and modern city located in the south-eastern region of Australia. It’s regarded as the cultural centre of the country, with museums, galleries and theatres dotted throughout its districts – each of which has its own distinctive character: South Bank, for example, is famous as an entertainment centre, where you will find theatres, opera houses and amazing restaurants.
Stockholm Arlanda Airport is Sweden’s busiest airport and one of four that serves the country’s capital. So it is important that passengers flying from Stockholm with Qatar Airways ensure that their taxi driver takes them to the right airport.
Sweden has a reputation for cool efficiency, and this ultra-modern airport is no exception. Plans have recently been approved to expand the airport to accommodate larger aircraft such as the Airbus 380, and with excellent facilities and a typical Scandinavian devotion to efficiency and quality, flying from Stockholm with Qatar Airways is a relaxing and pleasant experience.
Transportation and parking
There are several railway stations at the terminals. The SkyCity terminal operates long-distance trains to destinations such as Trondheim and Gothenburg, while local trains into Stockholm itself are frequent and efficient.
Road transport includes bus, coach and taxi options, all of which run from various points around the city to the airport. Car parking is plentiful.
Multistorey garages have direct access to the terminals, and there are also open-air car parks near the terminals. Two additional car parks further away offer economy rates and are connected to the terminals by free shuttle buses.
Arriving at Stockholm Arlanda Airport
Passengers flying from Stockholm with Qatar Airways depart from Terminal 5. It has three piers connected to 31 aircraft parking stands with passenger bridges.
There are also a number of remote aircraft parking positions serving this terminal, so it is important to check on arrival where your flight is departing from. Due to the size of the terminal it is also advisable to arrive at least two hours in advance.
Be aware that during the winter there may be delays due to weather conditions, so again allow yourself extra time if travelling during the colder months.

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.
