If you are headed to Melbourne for a holiday it is worth hiring a car as there are many things to do within a couple of hours drive of the city. The Great Ocean Road begins only about an hours drive out of the city in the town of Geelong. It is a 270km stretch of winding road which runs along the Victorian coastline towards the South Australian border.

There are many things to do and places to see along The Great Ocean Road including the towns of Torquay and Warrnambool. Torquay is a home to a series of world famous surf beaches including Bells and Warrnambool is where it is at for winter whale-watching excursions. A Melbourne hire car makes all this very accessible.

Along The Great Ocean Road you will also run into The Twelve Apostles standing sentry along Australia┬┐s southern coast. You will probably need a few days to do The Great Ocean Road justice as there is an awful lot to absorb. So, if you are on holiday in Melbourne on a business trip with a weekend stay over rent a car in Melbourne and make your Great Ocean Road trip happen.

There are other reasons to hire a car in Melbourne; The Yarra Valley for one. Only an hour out of Melbourne, The Yarra Valley is home to some of Australia┬┐s finest vineyards.
