Cairns Car Rental
Without a doubt, the best way to experience Cairns is by hiring a car. Cairns is an ideal self-drive destination, with many of the roads snaking the scenic coastline. Views to the Great Barrier Reef islands, World Heritage Rainforest and long gorgeous beaches are commonplace for Cairns drivers.
Road planners have been diligient about having many lookouts in appropriate places along the beautiful shores, and just an afternoon drive North is bliss.
Tropical North Queensland has many attractions which cannot be reached on an itinerised tour, like wallaby feeding at Granite Gorge, or cooling off in a mountain stream - these pleasures are often missed by many visitors. To see the best parts of Cairns, you really must drive yourself.
To experience the myriad of attractions in Far North Queeland, hiring a car is your best option, as public transport doesn't cover the area near as well as it does in southern cities. It also gives you the freedom to create your own holiday, and enjoy attractions you like without being in a crowd of strangers.
Cairns is a very small city by world standards, and is an easy drive. You can generally find a park in the CBD quickly, and it won't cost you a days work. Rush hour traffic is non-existant, and most self-drive locations are less than an hour in all directions around Cairns. There are also many tourist drives and food trails which are ideally suited to a hire car. We also throw in some free maps of Far North Queensland to help you navigate.
