Things to see and do in the local Melbourne area
No matter your reason for visiting Melbourne, there are loads of fun adventures to enjoy both within the city and further afield. The Thrifty office is only a stone’s throw from a number of the city’s top spots such as Federation Square, DFO Harbour Town, Crown Casino and the Melbourne Aquarium.
For those who want to get out of the city and see more of Victoria, Melbourne is the perfect starting point. Try the iconic drive along the Great Ocean Road, taste the wines in the Yarra Valley, soak up the scenery at Phillip Island or relax down on the Mornington Peninsula – you’ll never run out of options!
Tips and advice when visiting the Melbourne region
- Be careful when driving on tram tracks, and give way to commuters getting off the trams
- Note that in the Melbourne Metropolitan area, one-way streets and hook turns (turning right from the left lane) are common
