“It was a seamless and excellent experience.” – Kim

Things to see and do with a rental car in Blackburn

Blackburn is also conveniently close to Australia’s ‘Food Bowl’ – the Yarra Valley. Known as much for its foods as it is for its wines, this area makes for the perfect relaxing road trip as you cruise from one decadent vineyard to another, stopping at restaurants and cafes along the way. Naturally, one of the best things to do with a vehicle in Melbourne is to follow the Great Ocean Road. This is widely regarded as Australia’s best road trip, as you’ll follow the coast along 243 kilometres of stunning scenery, charming towns and unforgettable attractions. It officially begins in Torquay to the southwest of Melbourne city, and finishes up in Allansford. 

Whether you’ve got one hour or one week to explore Blackburn and the surrounding areas, you won’t be short of things to do with your car rental. The Blackburn Lake Sanctuary is just down the road from the depot, and is an idyllic little spot with indigenous bushland, a scenic lake, wetlands, and hiking trails. It’s also a protected habitat for plants and animals, so you may even spot a few special species during your visit.
