Melbourne Mini Guide

Melbourne is considered the cultural capital of Australia and is the country’s second largest city. Melbourne is a coastal city based around Port Phillip Bay suburb of St Kilda as well as the Yarra River.

To get from Melbourne Airport to the city centre is a 22-kilometre journey and having a rental car is the best way to do this. Having a hire car will save you a hefty charge on hiring a taxi as the meters often run high in traffic.

The city is spread out over a large area and whilst public transport is good, nothing beats the convenience of your own transport. Rhinocarhire.com can help you arrange low-cost car hire in the city. There is a wide range of hire cars to choose from if you book online and we can make sure that any optional extras you require are ready too when you collect your car.
