While driving around Melbourne is enjoyable and straightforward, there is a large tramline network that makes intersections and turning left or right a matter for caution. Also look out for pedestrians disembarking from the trams! Once away from the city, roads are well-maintained and easy to drive although many are toll-operated.
Melbourne is a car-friendly city with parking spaces right across the city and metered street parking in shopping and tourist areas as well as over one hundred supervised multistory and underground parks. Take note however; hourly and daily parking rates can be expensive.
Start your visit to Melbourne by taking a drive around the city's main districts. The old city centre and docks area are bustling with life and things to see, but come evening head over to Southbank for theatres and nightlife. The Port Melbourne and Albert Park areas of South Melbourne offer a glimpse into the city's history while for relaxing days in the sun there are beautiful beaches at St Kilda. The colonial architecture of Flinders Street Railway Station is one of Melbourne's landmarks while the Immigration Museum close to the station gives you a poignant look back at Australia's early settlers.
