Car rental Australia

Australia is a vast and mysterious continent. It was discovered by Dutch explorers in 1606. During the late 18th and early 19th centuries, large numbers of English convicts were transported to various Australian penal colonies. The population of Australia barely surpasses the population of the Netherlands and is distributed over the main centers of Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Canberra and Darwin.

The inhabitants of the outback

The distances are huge and the hinterland is desolate, hot and almost impenetrable. Only a small group of Aborigines lives in the outback. Car rental in Australia is necessary to explore the immense country. Compare car rental Australia before departure and book a great bargain from holidaycars.com!

Enjoy natures beauty at the Great Barrier Reef

On the east coast of Australia is the largest coral reef in the world, the Great Barrier Reef. This natural wonder lies over a stretch of 2000 km of the coast of Queensland. You can explore the reef from almost every coastal town. Rent a car in Australia and discover the magic place at your own pace.

Rent a car to explore the Blue Mountains

Sydney is an enchanting city with one of the finest natural harbors in the world. There are over four million people living in Sydney. The town and surrounding area is also immense, so a rental car would be quite handy. The nearby Blue Mountains are known for their breathtaking views and unspoiled flora and fauna.

Darwin

The impressive rock formerly called Ayers Rock, stands in a completely flat red colored area. The rock is located in Australia and to get there you should rent a car in Darwin. Singapore is also closer to Sydney than to Darwin. The straight road to Ayers Rock is about 1500 km long.

Tips for travelling through theWetlands by rental car

Car rental in Australia is simple and fast. That is important, because it easily gets you to Southeast of Darwin, the tropical wilderness of Kakadu National Park, a stunningly beautiful area with cool waterfalls, red cliffs, raging rivers and extensive wetlands. Be sure to view the rock paintings of the Aborigines which sometimes are dated back to 20,000 years ago.

Perth

To the North of Perth on the west coast, lies the Natural Park Shark Bay. Car hire from Perth is highly recommended. You can find many rare flowers and even spot an Indian manatee. The sandy beach Monkey Mia is a must see. You might encounter wild dolphins in the shallow water.
