Moranbah, situated in the state of Queensland is called 'the new kid on the block' by locals, because it is one of the youngest towns in Northern Australia. Established in 1969 as a mining town, Moranbah is an ever growing and developing town. Car hire in Moranbah is recommended as an option to explore surrounding Queensland and all it has to offer. Moranbah is a small town with a great atmosphere and real sense of Australian culture, if you fancy a stint away from the tourist hotspots, it's the perfect place to stay. The surrounding area can be explored by hiring a car in Moranbah and getting out to experience the beauty of the Australian countryside.
Moranbah is close to the Peak Range National Park, which is part of the Peak Downs. Visitors hiring a car in the Moranbah can enjoy the scenic drive that the Peak Downs Highway provides, with outstanding views of the mountains and countryside that stretch between Moranbah and the neighbouring towns of Clermont and Dysart. The peaks were formed around 26 million years ago - which makes them young mountains by Australian standards. You can follow the mountain road to the nearby towns if you rent a car in Moranbah, to explore what other towns have to offer.
The Peak Range National Park is not limited to the peaks themselves - in the park you can also explore mangrove swamps, rainforest and sand dunes (it's amazing that all that can exist in a relatively compact space) as well as dense woodland with eucalyptus trees and poplar gums. If you drive further along, the Peak Range National Park becomes the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park - the two are linked together by the Cape Creek system. The area is home to species that are close to extinction, and without the protection of the wildlife parks, would not be around to this day.

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.
