Luggage Storage Near the Australian Sports Museum

Some people like to call Australia the “Cricket Capital of the World.” In reality, Australians love all sorts of sports; football, basketball, rugby, tennis, boxing – you name it, they’ll play it. In fact, Aussies love athletics so much they created the Australian National Museum. This super-sized sports center pays homage to Australia’s greatest athletes. Incidentally, there’s also a special exhibit dedicated to the Melbourne Cricket Club. 

If you’re a big sports fan, especially if you’re a Cricket fanatic, you should definitely visit the ASM. It’s located within the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Even if you aren’t that big into sports, you should still check this amazing museum out. Who knows, the palpable zeal of all the other sports fans who are there just might make a believer out of you yet.

Luggage Storage Near the Old Melbourne Gaol

Do you believe in ghosts, goblins, and ghouls? Well, you should visit the Old Melbourne Gaol even if you don’t. This place just exudes a creepy, unsettling atmosphere, especially in the late hours of the day. Long ago, the gaol used to be a prison that housed some of Australia’s most dangerous criminals. Now, the gaol is a museum of sorts. However, they don’t display art pieces and marble statues at the Old Melbourne Gaol. Instead, they display terrifying oddities and curios such as the alleged skull of Ned Kelly. 

You can find the Old Melbourne Gaol near the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Add this scary destination to your itinerary. But first, use Bounce to store your things, lest the spirits of the deceased steal your possessions.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
