Situated around the mid-way point of the Gold Coast, Southport is a prime location for a short break or a holiday. You can visit attractions within the city limits or take longer journeys to explore what's around; car hire in Southport allows you to do it all. Take in the Broadwater and experience life at the sea edge or have some retail therapy at the Australia Fair Shopping Centre all so much easier by hiring a car in Southport. After you have been whizzing around why not stretch your legs at one of the many parks or aquatic centres nearby?
Waiting for public transport and having to stick to timetables is time-consuming so hiring a car in Southport would really save time. With time to spare, take a relaxing boat trip or just enjoy an ice cream or coffee before you jump in the car again. Rent a car in Southport and drive out to the Broadwater Parklands. You can take in the area from the car, on the Gold Coast Highway, or explore the shops, beach, viewpoints and playgrounds to make a day trip out of it. There are plans to build a pier to replicate the original one which was removed because of detrioration.
Southport has so much to see and do but you may want to take the opportunity to explore your surroundings further, how about a trip to Brisbane, state Capital of Queensland? Brisbane contains over 14 noted visitor attractions, take the Pacific Highway and in under an hour you'll be there. The art gallery is a must see among the selection of cathedrals and museums. Do the Story Bridge climb, or for more adrenaline take advantage of their abseil climb package. Or, head to the Eagle Street Pier where you can enjoy a vast selection of famed food at the water's edge.

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.
