7 seater car rental Melbourne

Melbourne seems to be where the most is happening in Australia, or so they say. Melbourne is great for young and old alike, but the young are certainly starting to take over with their great music and art scene, as well as innovate restaurants and much more. It is the second-largest city in Australia and continuously expanding, for good reasoning! Here, you can tramp around Victorian-era architecture and enjoy world-class surfing all in the same day, which is not seen in many other places in the world.

Recommended 7 Seater Car & MPV drives in Melbourne

If you are looking for quite the long and adventurous drive, head to Adelaide from Melbourne on the iconic Great Ocean Road. With beaches like Apollo Bay, many national parks, and so much more – you'll find yourself camping and loving it along the way. Many people choose to do this journey slow, so they can hike and get their adrenaline – as well as relax in some of the best wine in all of Australia. Geelong and Henty wine regions are so full of flavor, they often leave people stranded in wine country for weeks!
For those looking for an adventure that isn't so long and maybe a little closer to the city itself, why not take a drive to the Yarra Valley Wineries? Or, if you are not interested in wine, why not take a hike through Sherbrooke Forest to see places like Sherbrooke Falls and enjoy a lovely picnic out in nature.

If you want something even more relaxing, head to the famous Peninsula Hot Springs in Fingal, where you can lay back and soak in some awesome mineral water. It's only about an hour and a half drive from Melbourne itself, and well worth it.

If you get a chance to visit Melbourne in the winter, don't think that you are stuck near the beach and can't enjoy a little snow - as Lake Mountain is the place to be in the winter. Here, you'll find an abundance of great snow-related activities to keep you and your friends or family occupied!
