Top tips for hiring a car in Dandenong

  • With Dandenong being situated on the outskirts of Melbourne, having a hire car opens up the possibility of visiting scenic destinations, such as Lysterfield Park and Churchill National Park, which are not connected by public transport. Popular attractions including Puffing Billy Railway and Kokoda Track Memorial Walk (1.000 Steps) can be reached from Dandenong in roughly 30min, which is less than half the time required using buses and trains. It’s also easy to drive 20min west towards Chelsea Beach, which would otherwise require a trip in and out of the CBD by public transport.
  • All car hire companies are located directly outside Terminal 2 at Melbourne International Airport (MEL). There are no inter-terminal shuttles as Terminals 1, 3 and 4 are within walking distance from the car hire facility, below short-term parking. The drive to Dandenong takes roughly 1h, making hire cars a fantastic option to avoid a costly taxi fare. The most direct routes from the airport use toll roads, so it is recommended to familiarise yourself with the conditions of your hire agreement.
  • If you are driving towards St Kilda and the centre of the city, keep an eye out for trams. Be sure not to block the path of an oncoming tram or cross double yellow lines. The rural surrounding suburbs east of Dandenong are the areas where you’ll most likely encounter wildlife on the roads; be aware, reduce your speed and use headlights to avoid collisions.
  • Peak hour traffic can cause long delays in Dandenong and it is best to avoid driving during the morning rush between 07:30–09:30. Afterwork congestion is particularly noticeable on the Monash Fwy and Princess Hwy from 16:00–18:30. Weekend traffic is less of an issue; however, the roads are generally busier the closer you get towards Malvern and Camberwell.
