Parramatta is only 23km away from the Central Business District of Sydney, so car hire in Parramatta is a good option for those wanting to explore the capital. Parramatta is named after the Parramatta River, which flows through it. Retail lovers will be glad to know that Parramatta is the home of the fifth largest shopping centre in Australia, Westfield Parramatta. There is a lot to do in Parramatta, and hiring a car will allow visitors to do more. The city has a lot of good restaurants, a beautiful park, and there's a beautiful nature reserve around the river.
Parramatta is a largely commercial city just outside Sydney, offering lots of shopping, great restaurants and a lively social scene. Those hiring a car in Parramatta will want to head towards the sports stadium, which is next to Parramatta Park. It used to be farm land, and you can still see the Old Government House, from when Parramatta was the capital of New South Wales, until it moved to Sydney. Renting a car in Parramatta could also take you down to Lake Parramatta, a nature reserve around an old reservoir, which is great for walking.
Parramatta was once the capital of New South Wales, before Sydney took the title. Just a short trip out of the city is Elizabeth Farm, which was established in 1793, and there you can see the oldest European building in the country. It is an open museum, where you can read family letters and pretty much use the house as your own.
Two hours from Parramatta by car is the magnificent Hunter Valley - a massive river valley which is famous for producing both coal and wine. The Hunter River runs through the valley, and the scenery is spectacular, with great views from the high points.

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.
