So, you’re thinking of coming up for a visit to see what all the fuss is about? You’ve got a vague idea that ridiculously long stretches of coastline might be nice. Buckets of sunshine. Swimming around in the world’s largest living organism (it’s much nicer than it sounds). Or possibly cruising around 4WD-style on a variety of gorgeous islands and remote wildernesses?
Queensland can exceed your expectations, but don’t forget that it’s a big state. A rental car is an essential holiday item if you want to make full use of every precious second. No need to worry! VroomVroomVroom has collated all the deals and specials of the most popular hire car companies in one place. You’ll find the best deals in Queensland from leading car hire companies including Avis, Budget, East Coast Car Rentals, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz, and Thrifty.
Explore the beauty of Queensland in a rental car
You might want to pick up your lovely Brisbane rental car as you arrive at Brisbane Airport and go crazy in the southeast. There are 800 kilometres of sandy beaches stretching from Coolangatta on the NSW border to K’gari (previously Fraser Island), flirting their way past Surfers Paradise with all its glitz, glamour and idling through the languid Sunshine Coast.
You might be a bit of a danger buff and fancy testing your skills against the unforgiving wilds of Cape York. No worries. Grab yourself a rough-and-ready Cairns hire car and launch on a mission up along the Cape York Peninsula. Or maybe you’re up for some Queensland luxury. Pick up a convertible and head to Palazzo Versace, our only 6-star hotel in Australia. Check-in for a night of pure luxury at the Brisbane Marriott Hotel or experience the Whitsundays at the new Qualia Resort.
Or maybe you want to do something a little out of the ordinary and see the living spirit in Queensland out in the country and regional areas, the “Outback”. Get yourself a roomy van or SUV and drive your rental car beyond the reaches to explore Aboriginal artwork at Carnavon Gorge, make an entrance at the infamous Birdsville Races, or dig around for some precious stones in Opalton. VroomVroomVroom’s got locations all over the Queensland Outback. Places like Charleville, Mount Isa and Charters Towers make the one-way trip easier to organise.
