Spending the night at the airport
Melbourne airport is large and the toilets are pretty far from each other, so the stay can get difficult if you are not travelling with people with the same gender. It is generally a noisy place and the air conditioning is strong, so have earplugs and blankets.
Where to rest: The quieter and most isolated places are the hallway that connects terminals 3 and 4 and the corridor that leads to the security control of Terminal 3. However, benches, although they do not have armrests, are not very comfortable. Some of the seats in the coffee shops may be better. Another option is to use one of the VIP lounges. The only problem is that they close at night. On the other hand, there is a hotel connected to the terminals through a covered walkway.
Baggage: In Terminal 2 there is a left-luggage service, but it only operates from 5:00 am to 0:30 am.
Eating and drinking: There are options open during the night in terminals 2 and 3.
Restrooms: You can find showers in the public area of Terminal 2 and inside the VIP lounges.
Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, baby changing facilities, children's playground.
