Things to see and do with a rental car in Melbourne

South Melbourne adds its own personality to the city and offers plenty to do when you’re in the area. Of course, many of Victoria’s best attractions are never far away with a car rental. 

Our South Melbourne car rental store located just a stone's throw away from the South Melbourne Market. If you're lucky enough to be in the area on a Wednesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday, the markets are a great place to discover fresh local produce and enjoy great food and coffee! Featuring local farmers, artisans and producers, the markets are a treasured inner city establishment in Melbourne as they're filled with activities, events and even live music. 

Escape Room Melbourne can also be found in the south of the city and is a great attraction if you’ve got a small group to work together. 

Many of Melbourne’s top attractions are nearby, such as the City Circle Tram, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, and the Royal Arcade in the heart of the CBD. If you’ve got more time, make your way an hour out of the city to the gorgeous Mornington Peninsula for a round of golf, wine tasting, hiking, an art gallery or spa visit, and so much more.
