Perth is one of the largest cities in Australia. Much of the city, which the writer Bill Bryson named as being the most isolated city on earth, is located on the Swan Coastal Plain. There is so much to see that car hire in Perth is great for those wanting to explore the metropolis, as well as the fascinating countryside that surrounds it. The area was inhabited by the Whadjuk Noongar people for 4, years before European settlers arrived, and there's plenty of history to discover by hiring a car in Perth and checking out the country.
Perth is known as the capital of Western Australia, and so the retail facilities are top notch. Murray Street and Hay Street are the best places to go for those hiring a car in Perth. There are pedestrian only links to other shopping areas and also to the railway station. Science lovers should consider renting a car in Perth in order to go to the Scitech Discovery Centre, a huge interactive science museum, where you can get hands on and discover fascinating facts. The centre also puts on live science demos, and is linked to the Horizon Planetarium, which is just next door.
Perth is located in some of the most amazing landscapes in Australia. If you drive out of Perth, a couple of hours down the road are the Pinnacles, huge columns of limestone that protrude up from the desert. The Pinnacles look like they belong on the moon, and the sands around them are richly coloured. There are tours available that organise sand boarding on the dunes in the desert. Funnily, the sand gives way to the fishing village of Cervantes, where you can have a spot of lunch. Also close to Perth is the 2,700 million year old Wave Rock, which is incredible both because of its age, and because of its formation.

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.
