Places to Visit with Your Car Rental South Yarra

South Yarra is one of Melbourne’s historic and wealthiest inner-city districts, surrounded on the north by the Yarra River and Richmond, on the south by Prahran, and on the east by Toorak.

The vast business sector of South Yarra is known for its shopping, fashion, dining, and entertainment options. Chapel Street is dotted with upscale shops, cafes, nightclubs, and the popular Jam Factory entertainment complex, the Como Centre, and the Vogue Shopping Plaza. More retail businesses, the Pran Central Shopping Centre, and the historic Prahran Market with its huge assortment of gourmet foods and fresh produce on Commercial Road, which separates South Yarra from Prahran. Restaurants and fashionable fashion boutiques along Toorak Road sell the best of both local and imported goods.

Herring Island

Herring Island Environmental Sculpture Park is a 3.2-hectare artificial island in Melbourne’s Yarra River near South Yarra, about 3 kilometres from the city centre. You can grab a punt over from Como Landing on weekends and public holidays from January to Easter and enjoy a day out at the lovely picnic spot and take a wander through the Herring Island Environmental Sculptures.

The Herring Island Hall and Gallery was rebuilt from an old scout hall. The facility is open for activities, exhibitions, and meetings during the summer arts festival. The island was constructed when the Yarra River was straightened in the 1920s to reduce flood damage from the neighbouring neighbourhoods. It is currently a haven for wildlife and art enthusiasts alike.

Como House and Garden

Como House and Garden, built in 1847, is an unusual blend of Australian Regency and classic Italianate design. The past owners, the Armytage family, lived there for over a century, and Como provides a peek into their luxurious existence.

The Armytages became well-known among Melbourne’s upper crust and their numerous beautiful dances, dinners, and receptions. Even the servant’s quarters, kitchen, and laundry have been preserved, and the exquisite dining and reception rooms are still decorated with Armytage family relics.

Fawkner Park

Fawkner Park, named after Melbourne’s co-founder John Pascoe Fawkner and initially reserved in 1862, has mostly retained its original shape. Two Art Deco brick pavilions and meandering walks studded with Moreton Bay figs, elms, poplars, and oaks are among the highlights.

Summer weekend cricket matches have a ‘village green’ feel, with spectators taking advantage of the free on-site barbecues and picnic spots. The park also houses the Fawkner Park Children’s Centre and playgrounds and sports fields.

Good cars, excellent variety and keen rates. Easy website booking. Airport pick up and drop off very good. Good people to deal with. I’ve used these guys twice and will continue on every Brisbane visit.

First time hire with Alpha and I must say it was great. Much better value than other hire companies. Was reticent about the off airport location but the shuttle was easy, virtually no waiting and drivers friendly and polite. Check-in and drop off very easy as well. Again, staff were great. Car clean and no problems.

I used Alpha 10 years back when they had just started out and loved their service back then, so when it came time to hire another car in Brisbane I sought them out. Super pleased to see their great work has paid off and they are now a massive company but have retained the small company service and vibe. Super friendly staff from the shuttle drivers, to front desk and phones. 0800 is answered quickly unlike others. Nice vehicles and great price. Will be back for sure.

Great experience renting a truck (both times). In both cases - clean interior, runs well. Hydraulic lift, A/C, cruise control were in good working order. Booked and paid online, no hassle pickup and drop off, friendly staff. Also, great price on truck rental, looks like the best in the city. Don't forget to fill that tank when returning the vehicle.

The business is located in the perfect spot in Hendra and there is a service station only metres away, making it super easy to refuel just before returning the car. The staff are quick, friendly and efficient. The car I had was relatively new and in excellent condition (although it did need a more thorough clean, which could be due to my last minute booking). The shuttle bus runs regularly and the driver was extremely helpful and considerate. Overall, I was very happy with every aspect of my first experience with them. It won't be my last!
