Where is the branch located?
We are located on the corner of Princes Hwy and Chandler Road, Noble Park, opposite Macdonalds. Enter and exit via service road off Princes Hwy.
Noble Park is a suburb of Melbourne, around 25 kilometres or a half-hour drive from the city centre in your rental car. Noble Park has everything you might expect from a Melbourne suburb, with restaurants, parks, leisure centres, churches, schools, train stations and hospitals all available here. It is much quieter than the city and offers a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of the CBD. Noble Park is not quite a tourist destination when travelling through Melbourne and Victoria, but its parks, swim centre, and quieter streets can offer a nice place to return to when seeing the sights in Melbourne.
Walk along the Yarraman Creek as it winds through parks and residential areas and stop at the Ross Reserve, with large open areas for picnics and barbeques; on a nice day, it is filled with local residents looking to make the most of the weather. A skate park, table tennis tables, sports ovals, playground, fitness equipment and a running track are also on site.
One of Melbourne's best features is its juxtaposition of city living and stunning national parks and nature. You never have to drive far from the city to find some breathtaking scenery. One of the most stunning national parks in Victoria is the Yarra Ranges National Park, just over two hours away by rental car from Noble Park. Situated just before the Victorian Alps, the Yarra Ranges offers a diverse landscape filled with places to explore. From mountains, rivers, lakes, gorges, ancient forests, the largest flowering tree on earth, The Mountain Ash, the list is endless. A great use of your car is the Black Spur Drive, winding through the forest with dense foliage growing right up to the roadside for miles around. See iconic native animals such as grey kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, echidnas and more. If you only have time for one scenic drive, the Black Spur Drive has it all, stop off at designated areas and take on one of the walking paths, ranging from easy strolls to challenging treks.
There is more than one mountain range worth seeing outside Melbourne, and this one is even closer, at just 25-minutes by car from Noble Park: the Dandenong Ranges National Park. Bordering the outer suburbs, the Dandenong Ranges are a popular getaway for Melbournians. Climb the 1,000 steps, a Kokoda Track memorial, while learning about Australian WWII history. It is hard to believe when you climb these steps, you are a stone's throw away from Melbourne, with giant ferns, thick forest, wallabies, wombats and the endangered powerful owl. It makes the perfect day trip from Melbourne, and you can be back in the city in time for lunch or dinner.
Melbourne has many fantastic tourist attractions, from the iconic Melbourne Zoo (Australia's oldest zoo), to the aquarium, Eureka Skydeck, the Botanical Gardens, and the famous shopping arcades in the city centre. But what most won't mention is Melbourne has many fantastic free attractions, to save you money to spend on more important things like shopping and food. There are a number of free museums and art galleries dotted throughout the city to encourage tourism—only a 30-minute drive from Noble Park. Start off with the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) located on St Kilda Road, just down from Federation Square. The gallery is home to more than 70,000 artworks and is the main public gallery in Victoria and one of the best in Australia. See everything from Australian colonial art to French Impressionism during your free visit. Other free attractions include the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, the State Library, The Australian Centre for Contemporary Arts (ACCA) and a range of other smaller galleries and museums.
