Things to see and do with a rental car in the local area

Preston is just one of the many incredible spots in the Melbourne area, so while you’re cruising through this eclectic city, shift gears and zoom over to the Melbourne Zoo, Royal Botanic Gardens and iconic Queen Victoria Market. There is truly something for everyone in this cultural hub of a city, so explore with your Thrifty Preston car rental to make the most of it. 
Preston is one of Melbourne’s hidden gems, located less than 30 minutes from the city centre. It’s where you’ll find everything from bikram yoga to growers’ markets, and the locals range from young professionals out enjoying the town to big families relaxing in nearby parks. 
Fashionistas can be found meandering the Northland Shopping centre for the latest trends, whilst foodies can hop between a huge range of eateries from Italian gourmet pizza to authentic Asian cuisine. Should you happen to be in town on the fourth Saturday of the month, don’t miss the Preston Farmer’s Market at the Bell Primary School. You’ll pick up plenty of delicious organic produce while supporting the local community, and the kids will love the animal petting zoo and face painting!
