Discover Melbourne St Kilda and surroundings by car
As one of Melbourne’s trendiest inner-city suburbs, St Kilda is well-worth a visit and when you pick up a car rental from our Melbourne St Kilda station you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to explore at your leisure. There’s plenty to see and do in the area with top attractions including the Luna Park – a century-old entertainment complex which has become the face of St Kilda.
If you want to catch some rays or splash in the surf, don’t miss St Kilda Beach – one of Melbourne’s most-loved coastal destinations. Here, you can enjoy a relaxing stroll across the soft sand, take a dip in the clear waters, or admire the views across Port Phillip Bay. For a particularly memorable experience, head out to the pier breakwater at sunset to see the penguins.
From St Kilda, you can drive towards the centre of Melbourne where you will also find a wealth of top sites including Federal Square and the Southbank. Or, you could put your foot down and hit the Great Ocean Road – a National Heritage Site which starts at Torquay and stretches 243 kilometres along the south coast towards Portland.
Driving in Melbourne City
When navigating a new area, it’s important to drive slowly and to follow local driving laws. Local signage will guide you towards many of the top attractions but as traffic does build up within the heart of Melbourne, it’s a good idea to avoid rush hour periods which tend to fall from 7-9 in the morning and 5-7 in the afternoon. While roads such as the CityLink toll make getting around easier and link the city to travel hubs such as Melbourne Airport, it’s still advisable to leave plenty of time for your journey. Also, keep an eye out for the traffic cameras which govern the city’s roads.
With regards to leaving your car, on-street parking is available, or you may prefer to use one of the designated parking buildings.
