Western Australia is the largest state in Australia. Renowned for the Kimberley Region of the Australian Outback, containing incredible wildlife and a landscape of breath-taking scenery, the world-famous Australian Outback features many tributes to Aboriginal culture. Hiring a car in Western Australia means you can trek through the Kimberley Region, where you can find rock art that's thousands of years old. An absolute must-see is the World Heritage Site, Ningaloo Reef. Located in north-western Australia, here you can see stunning marine and coral life with your very own eyes.
Western Australia's capital city, Perth, provides the perfect getaway for tourists looking for some much-needed relaxation. Take a cruise down the majestic Swan River, get a fantastic view of Perth from Fraser Avenue Lookout, and even spend an afternoon relaxing in Kings Park and Botanic Gardens. Once you've explored Perth you can drive out to explore wider Western Australia. Exploring the city of a Fremantle is a must - rent a car in Western Australia and reach Fremantle in around a 30-minute drive from Perth. This maritime centre is renowned for its boat harbour and fishing community.
Before visiting Western Australia, it's wise to read up on the rules of the road. There are some important things to remember about driving in WA, such as the state speed limits. The speed limit is 100 km/h on open roads and the default speed is 50 km/h in metropolitan areas. International visitors are free to drive in WA for up to 12 months if they have a full licence. Be mindful of the weather conditions which could cause delays or pose a risk to drivers; heavy rain in less-populated areas can cause the roads to become quite hazardous, while intense heat could cause car (and driver) problems.

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.

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.
