Australian Capital Territory is located in the south east of Australia. Nestled in Australia's inland hills and in-between Brindabella's ski slopes and the east coast beaches you will find the country's capital and only city, Canberra. The city's cultural heritage lies proudly on display at its many museums and galleries. The Australian War Museum is memorable, moving and definitely worth a visit. The National Potrait Gallery is located just a short drive away on the other side of Lake Burley Griffin. If you're considering hiring a car in the Australian Capital Territory you'll have the freedom to visit these locations and the state's top attractions at your own leisure.
You cannot visit Australian Capital Territory without experiencing the state's wildlife reserves. From Canberra, you can take around a 40-minute drive and visit the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. Set in a beautiful valley and home to hundreds of Australian wildlife, here you can watch koala bears, kangaroos, emus and many more species in their natural habitats. Rent a car in Australian Capital Territory and drive to the National Gallery of Australia. Located in the city in the Parliamentary Triangle, the gallery is the largest art museum in the country and houses a large collection of Aboriginal art, prints, and sculptures. It also features international art and work by famous artists including Jackson Pollock.
Before travelling to Australian Capital Territory, it's wise to read up and familiarise yourself with the rules of the road. Try and ensure you carry your driving licence with you where possible in case you get stopped. You should also make yourself aware of the speed limits in the state as well as the road rules and penalties. Vehicles may also be subject to random inspections where they are checked for any faults but this shouldn't be much of an issue in a hire car. You may find it helpful to read the ACT road rules handbook before starting your journey.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. 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.
