We caught the SkyBus from near the Crown Casino to Tullamarine airport. There was no stress with this service. It arrived on time at the designated pick-up point and arrived at the airport with no delay.

Id say skybus is cheaper...online you can buy return ticket, 2 adults 4 children for $70, thats airport to city hotel plus city hotel to airport. There is no way a taxi would be cheaper than $35 one way.
