Things to see and do with a rental car in Bayswater


Victoria is a hub of cultural, historic and natural attractions, so you’ll never be short for things to do in Bayswater with your vehicle rental. Head just over 30 minutes north-east of Bayswater to the Yarra Valley wine region and indulge in some of Australia’s best vintages. The entire area is known as the ‘Food Bowl’ of Australia, so you can easily spend days stopping at cellar doors, restaurants and wineries along the way. Another popular spot is the Dandenong Ranges, which is just 15 minutes from Thrifty Bayswater. Here, rolling hills and dense forests create the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life, with hiking trails, cafes and scenic viewpoints throughout. You can also visit Australia’s oldest steam train, Puffing Billy, for a relaxing and stunning 25-kilometre ride through this gorgeous attraction. 


Finally, animal-lovers shouldn’t pass up on the opportunity to visit Healesville Sanctuary, which is less than an hour from Bayswater. This is a not-for-profit haven for native Australian wildlife, where the main goal is to fight wildlife extinction through recovery and breeding programs, and by educating the public on Australia’s most at-risk species.
