Based in the southern hemisphere, Australia has earned the title of being one of the wealthiest countries in the world. The vast expanse of the country is split into six large states, so car hire in Australia will greatly help you get around. The populated areas of the country are highly urbanised and are largely concentrated on the Eastern coast. The country is of course recognised for its aboriginal heritage, you can visit Uluru formerly Ayers Rock which is sacred to the aboriginals. Hiring a car in Australia will give you full scope of the country, pick out your favourite areas and city hop to make the most of your time.
The big tourist draws for the big cities are of course Melbourne and Sydney. Both based in the south east of the country. Although seemingly close, it's still an eight hour drive between the cities due to Australia's vast scale. If you're hiring a car in Australia, you can make the most of your drives by heading out to the Great Ocean Road, for a real scenic drive with plenty of seaside towns to use as bases along the way. If you're happy to contend with a serious drive, rent a car in Australia, then take two or three days to drive the Golden Coast in full, starting in the capital, Canberra, you can stop in Sydney and Brisbane, before finishing up in Cairns for a relaxing couple of days
While in the country, take time to visit one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef spans over 1600 miles around the north east coast of Australia. Using Cairns as a starting point, you can head down the A1 and see as much as the reef as you like on daily boat excursions with the option of scuba diving or snorkelling to see the reef up close. If you're basing yourself in the west of the country, Perth is a great big city to have as a temporary home. The Kings Park in Perth centre is one of the world's largest inner-city parks, with landmarks encompassed it's a great attraction to prioritise in the city.

To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
