You might need to ask the boss for some more time off, because Melbourne is simply bursting with iconic attractions. Start off with Federation Square and Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex. Don't miss Melbourne Cricket Ground and St Kilda Beach either.
You'll have to get up early if you want to see all the fascinating sights that this place has to offer. Bourke Street Mall and Melbourne Central are no-brainers. SEA LIFE Melbourne and Eureka Tower shouldn't be overlooked either.
Not too far from the city center, Hardware Lane is one attraction to consider putting on your to-do list. Collins Street and Melbourne's GPO are also nearby and worth checking out.
Time to get out on to the open road and head out to Lilydale. Just 22 miles away, a road trip here will be easy. Looking for an excuse to check it out? Lillydale Lake and Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail ought to be enough reason. If you need any more persuading, also think about Coldstream Hills.
There's nothing quite like opening the car window and feeling the cool sea breeze in your hair while you're cruising by the seaside. Pack some yummy food and spend some time enjoying the sun at one of the stunning beaches near Melbourne. Picturesque options include:
After a long day of chatting to like-minded individuals, it's always great to be able to rest your head somewhere nearby. If you're visiting Melbourne on business, these are some of the convention centers that are close to hotels and cafés:
Here's a rundown of all the tricks of the trade to help you save more money:
Making your way to Melbourne to be wowed by Melbourne Cricket Ground and Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex? Now that's an unforgettable road trip! But it pays to think about just how you'll get around. Driving in this sprawling metropolis can be a nerve-wracking experience, so go for a smaller vehicle, like a compact car. You'll be zipping past traffic and maneuvering into tight car spaces like you lived there your whole life. If you want to leave the driving for outside the city center, that's OK with us too. Book something more comfortable and a little bigger, like a standard car, and explore the mountains of Melton City.
You'll be glad to know that there's a broad range of both luxury and economy rental vehicles on offer in Melbourne. What you go for depends on your funds and the activities you've got planned. Specialty and prestige vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about mod cons and comfort. If you want to indulge yourself, why not grab an elite SUV, or perhaps a cushy mid-sized sedan? On the other hand, if you just need something to whiz around town in as cheaply as possible, maybe go for a budget compact vehicle (or something else that won't break the bank).
