Some considerations for driving a hire car in and around Mount Isa

Watch out for wildlife

Australia’s wildlife is one of its greatest attractions, but if, after you’ve picked up your hire car in Mount Isa, you’re out in the countryside, please remember you’re in their turf and it pays to be extra-aware when driving a rental car out there. Wildlife such as kangaroos and emus can be unpredictable and fast-moving, so watch your speed and keep your distance. If you’re concerned, always slow down.

Choose the right type of rental vehicle

If you’re planning on hiring a car in Mount Isa and using it as a base for some countryside trips, then a rental 4WD is perhaps a more prudent choice than a conventional rental car such as a SUV, sedan or hatchback. Do bear in mind that most hire cars are not permitted to be driven off-road. Keep an eye on your fuel gauge and always make sure you have plenty of water in your vehicle.

Yes, that’s a train on the road

As with Western Australia, Queensland is home to some of the longest — and largest — trucks in the world, some of which can be as long as 60 metres in length, and they’ve well and truly earned their nickname of “road trains.” When overtaking one (always take care, regardless of what you are overtaking), bear in mind that overtaking a road train will take longer than overtaking a regular truck.

Click clack front and back

In Queensland, the driver of a hire car and all passengers seven years and older must wear a seatbelt. It is the driver’s responsibility to make sure all passengers are wearing their seatbelts. Children under the age of seven must be in a properly fastened Australian Standard-approved child restraint. Fines can be as high as AUD$1,078 per offence.
