Sitting at the very heart of Yass Valley Shire is the town of Yass itself, a name believed to be derived from an Aboriginal term meaning 'running water'. Situated close to the capital city, Canberra, Yass is very well-connected to the surrounding region with a network of roads which make exploration a very tempting idea.
Car hire in Yass is easily arranged thanks to our central location along Comur Street, meaning you don't have to venture far to get set up with one of our cars. Free yourself from tedious, rigid schedules, and make your own rules when you hire a car in Yass.
You can access the National Trust gem that is Cooma Cottage if you rent a car in Yass - situated along Yass Valley Way, it'll take no more than a five-minute car journey to reach. The guided tours offered by the staff give you great insight into the lives of Hamilton Hume and his wife, as well as highlighting the importance of maintaining historical finds.
If you're looking for an unconventional attraction then Carey's Cave, found in the limestone Wee Jasper Valley, is a great place to visit. By hiring a car in Yass you'll arrive at the atmospheric site in just under an hour.
As Canberra is so close by, there's nothing stopping you from taking a day trip to the zestful city to enjoy the wonderful, cultural artefacts and collections kept at the Australian War Memorial. This must-see venue, although a popular tourist destination, is a very dignified and poignant approach to the military history that has helped shape Australia into the country it is today.
To round off your experience you can stay to witness the last post ceremony, a daily act of respect that occurs at 5pm. Whether you're a would-be historian, or simply want to understand Australia's heritage, this is a magnificent monument that every tourist can appreciate.

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.
