Things to see and do with a rental car in Melbourne


Coffee anyone? Melbourne is famous for it's cafe culture. If you're lucky enough to be spending time in the city, take a stroll through the many laneways that are dotted throughout the city and you'll be sure to stumble on a great spot to soak in the unique Melbourne vibe whilst enjoying a nice latte. 

From cafe culture to art and sporting culture, you'll also be spoiled for choice when it comes to galleries and museums. There's the renowned NGV National Gallery of Victoria and the National Sports Museum to name a couple of the must sees.

And for some fun in the sun, jump in your car and head to popular St Kilda beach! It's Melbourne's most famous beach for a reason. 

Exploring outer Melbourne

When you think of road trips and Victoria, the Great Ocean Road is surely on the bucket list! Simply hire a car from one of our Melbourne car rental locations and head out for a scenic drive to visit the infamous Twelve Apostles. If R&R is your specialty, Daylesford is a short drive from Melbourne and has an envy-inspiring selection of day spas and resorts to help you drift away from the city blues. For the more outdoorsy types, a hike in the Grampians region makes for an adventure-filled road trip in idyllic surrounds.
