Paraburdoo is in the Pilbara in Western Australia and is around 98km north of Perth. Hiring a car in Paraburdoo is essential to be able to explore the surrounding locations and visit places such as Radio Hill Lookout and Palm Springs which are a must-see when visiting this area. Paraburdoo is a mining community, and there are three mines in the local area, some of which have areas that are open to tourists, so hiring a car in Paraburdoo is a great way to go sightseeing.
Hiring a car in Paraburdoo is a good idea because the town is close to amazing natural sights like the Great Sandy Desert, the second largest desert in Australia, and the Hamerlsey Mountain Range. The area is famous for its scenery, with wildflowers being prolific after it rains. Those renting a car in Paraburdoo can also head over to the Pilbara mine works - there are tours around the mines if you book ahead.

Paraburdoo is quite remote, but there are plenty of things to do in the local area, mainly sightseeing in the many nature reserves of the Pilbara. The town sits on the edge of the Hamersley Range National Park. The mountain range contains the twenty highest peaks in Australia, and the area is full of gorges. Wittenoom Gorge is very impressive, and has a unique appearance because it is so eroded. This is because the land in this part of the Pilbara is some of the oldest on earth, formed by lava bubbling up from the centre of the earth billions of years ago.

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.
