It’s time for your trip to Moorabbin Downtown. Moorabbin is a suburb within Melbourne, Victoria, and is approximately 15-kilometres from the CBD. Moorabbin gives you the best of both worlds: you can explore all that Melbourne has to offer while also being close to the quieter areas of the Mornington Peninsula. We know that however you choose to spend your days here, you’ll have a great time, with Thrifty!
Moorabbin has a mild climate. However, as Melbourne is famous for its four seasons in one day, make sure to pack for all types of weather while staying in Moorabbin.
Moorabbin is a thriving suburb within Melbourne. Still, let’s not forget the huge social calendar that Melbourne is famous for. If you can, time your visit to Moorabbin with one of their many events, like the Australian F1 Grand Prix, Australian Open Tennis, Fashion Week, AFL Grand Final, the Melbourne Cup Carnival, Melbourne's Music Week, and the International Film, Comedy, Jazz, Fringe and Writers festivals. Take some time to research what’s on before you come to visit, that way you know you won’t miss out.
Moorabbin really does give you the best of both worlds. Conveniently located between the hustle and bustle of the CBD and the cool coastal area of the Mornington Peninsula, you can enjoy the coast by day, and the city by night.
The Mornington Peninsula is home to an exceptional coastline. Just a 45-minute drive from Moorabbin, the Mornington Peninsula is a great way to get outside, explore the beaches, and take in what’s on offer here. There’s plenty of scenic drives here too, which means you won’t have to leave your Thrifty rental if the weather turns. Try out the Arthurs Seat Loop Scenic Drive, Esplanade Scenic Drive, or the Flinders Hinterland Scenic Drive. Simply stop whenever you see a particularly great view or a spot that you want to take a walk, swim or explore.
In Moorabbin itself, you’ll find excellent cafes and restaurants. Particular highlights include the Tradesman Cafe, Minnie Miny Mo Cafe, and Farro Nourishing Eatery. At any one of these great options, you’ll experience the incredible coffee that Melbourne is famed for, as well as some delicious food. So, enjoy!
Head into Melbourne CBD for the late afternoon and evening and experience the city lifestyle. Take in the street art at Hosier Lane, or head to the National Gallery of Victoria to experience one of the incredible displays on offer. Marvel at the mecca of culture in Flinders Lane, where you’ll find award-winning restaurants, bars, galleries, and fashion stores. Finally, grab a bite to eat at Chin Chin, The Hardware Club, or Foglia Di Fico to name a few.
Just a two-hour drive from Melbourne CBD is the Great Ocean Road. A regular feature on plenty of travel blogs, the Great Ocean Road is home to the 12 Apostles, The Grampians, and Loch Ard Gorge. Make sure to keep your camera charged and bring your sense of adventure because this road trip is full of natural beauty unlike any other! Plus, while this trip can be done in a day, we recommend taking your time to explore, so make sure to book a spot while on the trip.
Another beachside town worth exploring while you’re here is the suburb of St Kilda. Affectionately known as the playground of Melbourne, St Kilda offers great views, top attractions like Luna Park, beaches, and sunsets with penguins! You’ll have a great time exploring this beachside town.
Your trip to Moorabbin is going to be a great one. From the epic social scene that Melbourne has to offer to the Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne CBD, St Kilda, the Great Ocean Road, and simply so much more, Moorabbin is the gift that keeps on giving. Bring your sense of adventure, plenty of layers (and a rain jacket or two) and get ready to explore in your Thrifty rental. We can’t wait to meet you here, at Moorabbin Downtown.
