Things to see and do with a rental car in Richmond

When visiting Melbourne, Richmond is the place to be. You’ve got an endless supply of food to satisfy all types of travellers, with everything from fine dining restaurants to cute laneway cafés. And of course, your Richmond visit wouldn’t be complete without heading down to the pub or the MCG footy ground to soak up the atmosphere of thousands of people cheering on their favourite AFL team. Melbourne is known for its shopping, and the factory outlet strip on Bridge Road is one of the best spots in the city to bag a real bargain. Plus, there are plenty of smaller boutiques with stock from top-end designers.

If you’re looking to head out of town with your Thrifty car rental, consider driving one short hour northeast to visit the gorgeous Yarra Valley. This region is known throughout Australia for its delectable food and wine, and you can easily spend a full day or two travelling from one café or cellar door to another.
