What to do while in Melbourne

Melbourne is a thriving, diverse city and visitors have a lot to do and see. If you like coffee, you’re in luck as the city has great cafes serving world-class coffee. Head to the city center to Federation Square and see the iconic Flinders Street Station. Take a walk to the Botanic Gardens, and if you have time, check out neighborhoods like Fitzroy or St. Kilda. When it’s time to eat, find one of the many Greek restaurants in the city that has the largest Greek population outside of Athens. 

Summer in Melbourne

Summer lasts from December through February. Melbourne’s summer temperatures range from 60 to 80 degrees, and it’s the perfect time to head for the water. There are several beaches to check out including Melbourne Beach, Brighton Beach and Elwood Beach. Release your inner child and head for Luna Park amusement park in St. Kilda and ride its wooden rollercoaster. If you happen to be in Melbourne in January, try to get tickets to a match at the Australian Open.

Phoebe went far and behind with her professionalism and willingness to help me with my hire. The truck hire and being shown how to use everything in the truck itself made moving so much easier. Would definitely recommend Phoebe and the SIXT Footscray team and will be coming back for my hiring motoring needs in the future
