Victoria's Premier, Ted Baillieu, has welcomed a Federal Government decision to give Melbourne a second international airport.
But he now wants federal money for a new rail link.
Avalon Airport, which is owned by the Defence Department, currently handles a small number of domestic passenger flights.
The Federal Government says it is granting the airport a new lease which will give it full international status.
The State Government recently announced a feasibility study for a new rail link between the airport and Melbourne and now the Premier says he would like financial help to fund it.
"Putting in place the capacity to have a rail line in there is what we're about," he said.
"We would welcome any support the Commonwealth would be prepared to provide."
The Government is looking to China to increase international tourism.
Work on the multi-million dollar passenger terminal is expected to start soon.
