Located in Queensland, and serving the nearby town of Emerald, Emerald Airport is a small airport, which services just under 50 flights per week, mainly to and from Brisbane. The town of Emerald, as the name might suggest, is well known for its gemstones, and has a number of exciting heritage sites, with a thriving culture.
Renting a car at Emerald Airport puts all of Queensland at your fingertips, allowing you to explore at your own whim, go where you like, when you like and see everything that you want to see, from the town of Emerald, to the area known as The Gemfields.
When hiring a car from Emerald Airport and driving over to the town of Emerald you will, excuse the pun, uncover some hidden gems. From the heritage sites of the Emerald Railway Station Complex, to the Fairbairn Dam located just a few kilometres away. The Fairbairn Dam is a great place to visit and walk around. It holds back a huge amount of water from the nearby lake, and has a spot which is perfect for fishing just a few hundred yards from the dam itself.
The Dam is a popular place for people to visit and is only a short drive away from the town centre itself.
Nearby to the town of Emerald, and close to Emerald Airport are The Gemfields, an area made up of a number of towns named after various gemstones (such as Sapphire Fields). Each town is unique and interesting, and certainly worth visiting.
The highlight of any calendar year in The Gemfields is the Gemstone Show and Exhibition, known as Gemfest. Taking place in August each year, it's an interesting glimpse into an industry which is largely unknown, and those who like to see gemstones up close will find that there is a great deal to see at the festival.

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.
