Top Tips

  • There are more than 42,000 parking spaces in Melbourne, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding somewhere to leave your car.
  • The centre of Melbourne is laid out in a grid, making it relatively easy to find your way around. If you’re unfamiliar with the area, you might want to request a GPS to help with navigation (or bring your own if you want to keep costs to a minimum).
  • Melbourne has one of the biggest tram networks in the world, so be aware of trams when you’re driving in the city centre.

Which companies offer best value in Melbourne?

If you want to split the driving with someone else, look out for cars which include an additional driver in the rental price (Thrifty and Bargain Car Rentals often have these offers on their cars). You will see exactly which cars come with an additional driver once you search on our site. We understand there’s more to good value than freebies — you want to be sure the company is one you can trust. To help you make an informed choice, we show ratings and reviews left by previous customers next to each car listing; so you get honest, impartial advice before you commit to a booking.

Day trips from Melbourne

Torquay: Located 95km south-west of Melbourne, Torquay is the surfing capital of Australia. The town is at the starting-point of the Great Ocean Road, and is home to the world-famous Bells Beach. If you’re interested in surfing, you can ride the waves or visit the Surf World Museum; and if you’d prefer to stay on dry land, you can complete a stretch of the Surf Coast Walk.

Phillip Island: Phillip Island is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the state of Victoria, and it’s a great day out for nature-lovers. What’s more, the island is less than a two-hour drive from Melbourne. If you stay until sunset, you will be able to witness the ‘Penguin Parade’ — where lots of Little Penguins run back to the shore after a day of fishing. To pass the time until then, you can relax on one of the beautiful beaches or enjoy a scenic drive around the picturesque island.

Maru Koala and Animal Park: A great day out for the whole family, the Maru Koala and Animal Park lets you get up close and personal with some of Australia’s native species. You can feed a koala, pat a kangaroo, walk with dingoes and hold a python — while the hourly talks let you learn all about the different species.
