Hello,
I am thinking of driving the great ocean road on wednesday 6th April. Anyone know a good place to rent a car for not too much money? If anyone would like to join in to make it cheaper that would be great. I am just going for the day as need to be back that night. Any help would be great.
cheers

I don't want to sound like a killjoy here: Honestly you won't see very much in a day as the distances involved between Sydney and Brisbane up the Gold Coast are colossal. Plus the fact that its dark by 6pm in Sydney at this time of year. Also if you're under 25, most Oz car rental companies will only give hire you a small car. There are loads of car hire companies located on Oxford Street in Sydney
Apex and Ezi-ride are two good companies to try.

I meant the great ocean road by melbourne. Apparentley you can drive for about 4 hours see quite a lot of stuff have lunch down there and then drive back - meant to be really nice. Not on the east coast it is the road from melbourne. Anyway if anyone has used a car hire company to do it please let me know a cheap one.
Cheers
