    Top Attractions in Preston

    The Preston Market
    The Preston Market has been successfully running for over 40 years and is still one of Melbourne's traditional markets.
    The market opened in 1970 and has grown to house over 130 stores! With its huge range of food, fashion, general specialty shops, free parking and trams, and trains and buses; Preston Market has everything for you!
    The market's atmosphere is unique with a diverse mix of traders and multi-cultural performers playing on every corner! The market is noisy but that “noise” is part of the experience as the market traders compete with each other and shouting their prices and bargains. The “noise” is part of the market's essence.
    Preston Market is not your ordinary market; it's a place where you'll have a glimpse of Preston's trading industry in the 1970s.
    The Olympic Hotel and Bistro
    Just 15 minutes away from Melbourne's central business district, the Olympic Hotel and Bistro offers a range of award winning facilities! It was originally built in 1956 for the Olympic Games. And until now, it embraces the Olympic spirit and at the same time, it's the best place in the Northern suburbs to dine or to just simply relax with family and friends!
    Bowland Wil Boar Park is a unique and delightful place to visit in your hire car, where there are many animals, which you can pet, stroke and feed. There are also beautiful woodland walks, a coffee shop and great facilities for children. The prices are very good, with a small charge for the children who want to go on a ride on the tractor.

    Although British Commercial Vehicle Museum is very small, it is an interesting museum to visit in your hire car with a wide variety of cars and engines to see. The staff is very knowledgeable and at any time will give you assistance should you need any. There is a nostalgic air to the museum, due to the old exhibits. Everything is labelled and explained, park your hire car so you will have a full understanding of the items.

    Brockholes Nature Reserve is a new type of nature reserve, in the sense that it is accessible to everybody with hire cars. There are a lot of things to enjoy here: explore the woods, take a stroll by the Ribble River, or enjoy the lakes on site. These places have been specially created not only for the animals who live here, but also for the tourists themselves, so that they can enjoy their day and make the most of their experience whilst in the Reserve.
