Cairns Car Rentals
Renting a car is a great way to get around in Cairns and explore the many great destinations that are just a few hours drive away.
Getting around Cairns CBD with your own car does make things a little easier. The driving in Cairns is fairly laid back just like the town itself so take your time and enjoy the slower pace. There's plenty of parking in town and the road signs directing you to popular tourist destinations are clearly marked.
There are many wonderful scenic routes to take that combine rainforest and ocean views, so if you want to get out of the city at your leisure, hiring a car is an excellent idea. The coastal roads connecting Cairns to other beachside towns are thought to be some of the best in the world.

Why hire a car?
If you are worried about getting lost then make sure you hire a car with a GPS system or get yourself a map of the area although it's hard to lose your way as there's always ocean to your east and rainforest to your west.
With a rental car you can see Tropical North Queensland at your own pace, so hire a car and enjoy the freedom of choosing where to go whenever you like! However, if you want to venture further abroad and head up to the Bloomfield Track you'll need to think about hiring a four wheel drive. There's also a number of other tracks closer to Cairns that are great for four wheel driving.
