Unique is a beautiful country with many bodies of water, rivers, and greenery. It seems that most of their cities include many inner parks. This gives the illusion of
having a “country-city”. In most places, Australia is like this. You’ll experience long roads that seem to lead to nowhere while other roads are filled with tall buildings, plenty of parks, and even fun events if you want to stop by and check it out.
Now, in order to explore all of these lovely places – you’ll need to use a car hire company in Australia. Car hire in the Gold Coast is a great starting point. By doing this, you won’t have to rely on a taxi. If you plan on going to many places, you could easily spend over $200 during the day. However, a more affordable method would be to rent a car. Most car rental companies will charge anything from $35 a day to $99 so this will obviously be a less expensive route of touring the city. Also, the prices really depend on the vehicle you are using. If you just need a car that works and is 5 or 8 years old, you’ll be paying the lowest possible price. Some travelers have large families and prefer to use a van which is usually a bit pricey, especially considering that you need to bring the van back with a full tank of gas.
To use a car hire company, we recommend going close as possible to the airport. If the airport is too crowded, you can always get a ride to the nearest car hire company in the area. This might even be more convenient so this way you don’t have to wait in line. Make sure you find a company that has good reviews. A vehicle hire company isn’t complete with positive customers to praise them. If there are a few negative reviews, see what it’s all about. Remember that not every client is happy when using services. Some will be incredibly picky when it comes to a car but if this is not you – you’ll be pleased with the service offer. It’s very important that you make sure they are safe and offer a car that is not damaged or too old.
Alright, so now that you finally utilized a car hire company, it’s time to get on the road! Here are a few places we recommend:
The Great Ocean Road
There is a long road that goes all the way from Torquay to Nelson. The road is actually located in Victoria and is exactly 400km long. The views you’ll see on this road are simply amazing and many of the village sea towns can be seen when driving by. You’ll also pass bright rainforests and a few parks along the way.
Savannah Way is notorious for its many national parks and a few mining towns. Did you know that they even have lava towns? This is definitely a sight to see and in order to get there, you’ll have to travel toward North Queensland from Broome, WA. We love how there are some hotels available with plenty of cattle stations nearby.
If you want to drive right through the heart of Australia, be our guest! As you are passing by the heart, you will be right in the middle of the Adelaide Airport and Darwin. Here they have plenty of vineyards to admire and you’ll also catch a peek of the Simpsons desert. Luckily, the journey ends with a light tropical rainforest.
