When was the last time you thought about Melbourne? Probably not lately, right? When was the last time you saw Melbourne—really saw it, explored its many streets and got to know its residents?
If the answer to that is “Not recently, mate”—or, gasp, “Never!”—then friend, it’s time to get thee to the “Second City”. Melbourne car hire from Wotif means you can go from the Cricket Ground to Flinders Street Station with ease…and stop at all the restaurants your heart desires.
Arrived already? Drop your bags off at your Melbourne accommodation and get out on the town! true, you can get around on a bicycle or public transport, but why not rent a car in Melbourne and really see the sights?
Spend an arvo at the National Gallery of Victoria browsing its numerous collections. The Aboriginal artefacts are particularly interesting—but there are also plenty of international artists represented.
Next, put the pedal to the metal and make for the Melbourne Cricket Ground. It’s a quick 3km hop east to this hallowed territory, where you can explore the grounds themselves and wander through the hallways of the National Sports Museum. If you love rugby, football or cricket, then this is where you belong. You can thank us later.
You like wine. We like wine. Let’s celebrate our combined affection for a good vintage by going wine tasting in the Yarra Valley. Point your Melbourne car rental about 60km east and you’ll be on your way to the good stuff. Just don’t ask us to drive, please.
You’ve seen the sights, re-enacted your favourite cricket plays and lived the good life out in wine country. And that was just on your first day. Why not stay a little longer? Wotif lets you mix and match accommodation and airfares to create the perfect Melbourne packages.Now pass another glass of vino!
