Cairns is a city right in the very North of Queensland, Australia. It is home to several shopping centres, galleries, museums and theatres, and hosts many annual events such as the Cairns Festival which showcases everything that this city has to offer, as the colourful parades move through the streets.
Hiring a car in Cairns means that you can travel around at your own convenience, and provides you with the freedom to journey out further afield. We have two branches situated close to the city centre, one of which can be found at Cairns Airport.
Head to the Cairns Central Shopping Centre for some well-deserved retail therapy; the shopping centre is the largest in the North of Queensland, and houses over 180 shops as well as a cinema. If you are feeling a little more adventurous then head to Barron Gorge National Park and get on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. It takes you just metres above the rainforest canopy so you can view the area from a different perspective.
Next to nearby Mena Creek Falls you will find a magnificent castle that is surrounded by a lush rainforest. The area is so picturesque that it is very popular as a wedding venue.
If you like a little more adventure in your holiday, rent a car in Cairns and take a walk on the wild side with a trip to the award winning Cairns Tropical Zoo. Six hectares of lush tropical scenery are home to hundreds of animals of all shapes and sizes.
The zoo is also one of the very few places in the world where you can actually 'cuddle a koala'. If you are looking to visit an area of culture and heritage then visit the state and National Heritage Listed Paronella Park.

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.
