The Melbourne Lounge closed back in March 2020 at the start of the pandemic. Now, at the same time as borders between Victoria and New South Wales reopen, Virgin Australia has reopened its refurbished lounge. The new-look lounge takes on a more contemporary and relaxed look and feel. It can seat up to 500 guests, making it the largest in Virgin Australia’s network of 10 lounges.

The lounge features all day dining, the Wake Up coffee bar, and the Wind Down wine bar. Melbourne Lounge also had the Get Down to Business centre, where travellers can hire meeting rooms with complimentary WiFi, power, PCs and printing facilities.

And there are plenty of places to sit:

  • The Gallery Lounge – the perfect place to take in the stunning views of the tarmac, with comfy chairs and ottomans

  • The Sunroom – a mixture of cosy seating arrangements, the perfect space to sit with a loved one, friend or colleague in comfort

  • The Long Stay – a chill-out zone adjacent to the Wine Down bar, with a focus on single seating for the solo traveller to catch up or unwind prior to their flight

  • Workbenches – offering power and data as well as a comfortable place to stay connected on the fly
