Luggage Storage at Southern Cross

As per a previous post, our party of four adults will be arriving early on a Tuesday morning into Southern Cross Railway Station after a trip on the Sydney-Melbourne XPT service. We are planning to stay in Melbourne until early afternoon, when we will pick up a rental car for the drive to Phillip Island and the penguin parade. We will overnight in Cowes and leave the next day to travel to the Great Ocean Road.

Will we be able to store our luggage at the railway station for a few hours? We would prefer to not have to rent the car, stow the luggage and then pay for parking while we sightsee that morning, if at all possible.

Thanks for your replies.

The lockers are located near the Skybus terminal, inside Southern Cross station.

As per the link, there are various sizes of lockers, so have a look around. If I recall correctly, the largest are off to the side, and seemed to me not to be as obvious as the smaller and intermediate ones.

Thanks, everyone, for the help. It looks like we will be able to store our luggage while we are in Melbourne.

Are there car rental locations at/near the station that anyone knows about?

Thrifty (ok for ferries) has an office at 390 Elizabeth St. which is in the CBD (downtown) and about a 15 min, walk from Southern Cross. After Spencer Street (Southern Cross) the streets go King,William,Queen, Elizabeth all very British LOL
