Simply put, Merimbula is a paradise. It is called the jewel of the Sapphire Coast, and it deserves the name - white sand meets blue water, and everything is marvellously relaxed. Away from the costal edge it's surrounded by forests, with plenty of non-marine exploring to do for those interested in making the most of car hire in the Merimbula. Some of the best national parks in Australia cover the area, so consider having the occasional break from lounging around by the water, hiring a car in the Merimbula and taking a tour of the forest roads to explore the beauty of the Australian gem
Merimbula is home to some of the most fascinating sea life in the world, head out on a fishing charter from the Merimbula Marina to discover some of the most interesting species of fish known to man. Fishing tours from the marina allow you to keep what you catch, so you can experience the taste of the Sapphire Coast. Afterwards, rent a car in Merimbula and explore the wilderness beyond the city.

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.
