Driving

LoadingAdd to itinerary

Unlike the Americas and most of Europe, Australians drive on the left side of the road. In the absence of traffic lights and at roundabouts, give way to the right. In Melbourne, watch out for trams and the unique city centre hook turn. Never pass a tram from the right or pass a stationary tram from the left, as passengers may be getting on or off. Seatbelts must be worn by law and at night it’s compulsory to drive with the headlights on. Drink driving laws are extremely strict in Victoria. The .05 blood alcohol limit is rigidly enforced and random breath tests are common. Speed limits and other regulations vary; however, in Victoria the speed limit is 50 kilometres per hour in built-up areas. Highway speed limits vary from 75 to 110 kilometres per hour unless otherwise indicated. In Melbourne, the CityLink and EastLink expressways, with their state-of-the-art electronic tolling systems, require a special e-tag or day pass to travel on them. For more information, or to purchase a pass, visit: www.citylink.com.au or www.eastlink.com.au, or contact CityLink on 132 629 and EastLink on 135 465.
