Discover and experience the Northern Territory with a reliable hire car

Natural Springs in Litchfield National Park, Australia.

Australia’s Northern Territory — or “Top End” as it is affectionately known — has Darwin as its capital and boasts some of the most impressive sites of natural beauty in the entire country. With attractions ranging from desert to rainforest — and everything in between — there’s no better way to explore than with a hire car.

Darwin International Airport give easy access to this amazing territory, and with a hire car you can do as little as explore Darwin’s immediate surrounds, or travel further afield to the wondrous Kakadu National Park, Arnhem Land, Nitmiluk National Park, or even Tennant Creek and its eerie Karlu Karlu / Devils Marbles.

A highlight for many visitors to Australia, a road trip to Uluru, makes for plenty of driving, but the road trip to Alice Springs, the closest major centre to Uluru, will make for a holiday memory of a lifetime.

Deciding on hiring a car is one thing, but finding the right hire car for you is a whole other question, and this is where VroomVroomVroom is here to help.

We work with Australia’s most respected car hire suppliers, and collate all of their rates into one space for you to choose from. With VroomVroomVroom you can browse live rates from Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, East Coast Car Rentals, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz, No Birds, Sixt, and Thrifty, and sort the results by location, price, vehicle type and more. The whole process of searching, sorting and booking can take as little as two minutes, and our best of class customer support is just a call away should you need assistance.

VroomVroomVroom takes the pain out of hiring the right car for your holiday in the Northern Territory, we free you up to concentrate on planning the where and the when of your holiday rather than the how.

Where in the Northern Territory to explore with a rental car

The Northern Territory may not be the largest state or territory in Australia, but that’s not to say there isn’t a bit of driving required to take in some of the best of what the territory has to offer. Tennant Creek, the launching point for the Karlu Karlu / Devils Marbles lies some ten hours away by hire car, while Alice Springs is an even further 15 hours away. Don’t worry if these road trip distances sounds too far, you can always fly to Alice Springs Airport, or Ayers Rock Airport, and pick up a hire car from there. If you’d prefer some destinations closer to Darwin, consider Katherine just three hours away, which brings the incredible Kakadu National Park and Arnhem Land within reach. For those who would like to drive as far as possible in a rental car, how about a road trip from Darwin to Adelaide?

If you’ve got the time but are not sure where to go, take a look at our collection of Northern Territory road trips to get some ideas of where it might appeal to you.
