Europeans first settled the area of Blackburn in the 1840s. The area was densely wooded, though orchards and small farms were soon developed. In 1861 the Traveller's Rest Hotel was built on the current site of the Blackburn Hotel. Blackburn is bounded in the west by Middleborough Road, in the north by Springfield Road, in the east by an irregular line along streets to the east of Blackburn Lake Sanctuary and in the south by Canterbury Road.

A large part of Blackburn is of historical significance, as it was built around the artificial Blackburn Lake in 1889, now known as Blackburn Lake Sanctuary, with the lake in the middle of the sanctuary, a very popular place to go for a daytrip.

In addition to our large fleet of passenger vehicles we also have a comprehensive and large range of commercial vehicles covering everything from vans and trays to trucks and buses.

At Thrifty Car Rental Frankston, we also specialise in long term rentals and fully maintained operating lease on our wide range of vehicles.
