Melbourne attractions and Travel Tips

Melbourne is sophisticated and edgy all at once. Its Victorian heritage and cultural supremacy once making the second-largest city in Australia a weighty contender for capital of the entire country.

The jewel in the crown of the state of Victoria, Melbourne is a vibrant hub of style, sport, culture and food. Melbourne is a relatively compact city for Australian standards, but still sprawls out like spokes from the Central Business District. South of the CBD is the muddy but iconic Yarra River, with some new tourist attractions popping up.

But it is its inner suburbs that hum with life and produce some of the best art, music, cuisine, fashion, performance and design in the world. From the hip cafes and second-hand shops of Fitzroy to the Italian quarter in Carlton and trendy beach side St. Kilda, this is where Melbourne’s character starts to shine.

The large distances involved around Melbourne makes renting a car the obvious choice, and many providers are well-served around the city. HAPPYCAR, the online comparison portal is here to help you find the best car hire Melbourne has to offer so you can take full advantage of this dynamic city with a direct car hire Melbourne Airport also available. We check the prices of international and local providers so that you don’t have to check each website to provide you with the best deals to make your money go further on a rental car that fits your specific rental needs.

General Information

The iconic trams that lumber back and forth past leafy boulevards speaks to Melbourne’s history. Settled in 1835, it was carefully planned before a gold rush brought the world to its doorstep and the British colonies turned the city into a temporary capital. Since the gold rush of the 1850's there has always been a strong Chinese contingent in Melbourne. Immigration has played a vital role in its development, and continues today.

Melbourne is a true multicultural city, with large populations of Vietnamese, Lebanese, Turkish, Italian and especially Greek immigrants. This creates a food heaven where enjoying a different cuisine each night is one of Melbourne’s great treats.

Melbournians love to shop, eat and play sports and its status as the founder of Australian Rules Football, along with populating half the league with its local teams, lends an air of reverence to the sport.

The city is also known as the capital of Australian culture and for good reason. With theatrical and musical productions on every street, a prodigious food and drink culture and festivals the year round, this is where many locals and travelers flock to enjoy the best of Australia.

Using a car hire in Melbourne

While the city itself is fairly large and useful to use a car to get around, Melbourne is an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding regions, and a Melbourne car hire is a very enjoyable, affordable option.

Day trips abound around Melbourne from the quaint villages of the Dandenong Ranges, the scenic Yarra Valley with vineyards aplenty to the beach-bound Mornington Peninsula, there’s something for everyone.

Melbourne is close to the Great Ocean Road, a beautiful coastal region that runs from South Australia to Sydney and an incredible scenic trip all year round. For a memorable day trip, try an excursion to Phillip Island, two hours south of Melbourne, to view a parade of penguins.
