WHAT is sports crazy and overflowing with delicious food, a thriving arts and music scene and has attractions to suit all walks of life? Melbourne, of course, Australia's second biggest city with its 3.7 million residents.
Located in the south-east corner of the country, Melbourne, the state of Victoria's capital city, is renowned for its never-ending supply of major sporting events including the Australian Open tennis grand slam (January), Formula 1 Grand Prix (March) and the Spring Racing Carnival, which includes the Melbourne Cup horse race that "stops the nation" (November). But there's more than sport: think lots of laughs at the International Comedy Festival, family fun of Moomba, a festival on the banks of the Yarra River which winds through the heart of the city, the tastes and tipples at the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival and home-makers' dream day out at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show.
Location, location, location! There are five car rental companies with offices and car collection points located on the ground floor of the Short Term Car Park immediately opposite the terminal buildings. Picking up your vehicle couldn't be easier and there are clear directions to guide you throughout the terminals.
There are also car rental desks in the Arrival Halls of both T1 Domestic (Qantas and Jetstar) and T3 Domestic (Virgin Blue and Regional Express). more...
