Melburnians are not left wanting for ways to move around their city, but some ways are more enjoyable than others. And we should know – when we’re out exploring Melbourne there’s nothing that ruins our day more than getting sardine-stuck on a tram or suddenly rerouted on a train. The Subaru Impreza, however, is one of the most comfortable ways to explore Melbourne. The All-Wheel Drive small car gives us total control as we dash around Melbourne’s tight streets and laneways while the reverse camera (and Reverse Auto Braking in selected models) ensures we nail our parallel parks every time. The sat nav means we never take a wrong turn off the M1 and the EyeSight® Driver Assist tech (selected models only) keeps us safe when distracted by a new piece of street art. With multiple USB ports our devices are always ready to use when we hop out, plus the digital radio, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity are far more entertaining than the voiceover on the tram. In the Subaru Impreza we have the freedom to explore Melbourne's hottest restaurants, schmickest bars and coolest street art (and go beyond the city limits and discover the best day hikes and getaways). This is what our one perfect day exploring Melbourne looks like. Photograph: Graham Denholm

We should err on the side of caution when describing Williamstown as “greater Melbourne”. Not only will the locals love to tell you it’s only 20 minutes to the city (and no tolls!), but there’s a beach that’s accessible via public transport, a gorgeous pier to stroll down and stunning views towards the city and across Port Phillip Bay. As Melbourne's first seaport, Williamstown has swiftly developed into a trendy seaside suburb with a village feel. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants, you can hop on a bike and circle the water’s edge, or just find a quiet spot to sit and think about all the things you still have left to do.
