Car Rental in Cairns

Cairns’ best driving destinations

Cairns is situated in tropical North Queensland and is most well known for being the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. It’s the fastest growing regional city in Australia and has many attractions to take advantage of with the autonomy of a rental car.

Soak up a sunset along the waterfront

Much of the vibrancy of this tropical paradise stems from the waterfront district. There’s plenty of parking and it’s a great area to relax. Take a stroll along the promenade, grab a meal at one of the many restaurants and watch one of the phenomenal sunsets that Cairns is famous for.

Access the Great Barrier Reef from Port Douglas

Port Douglas is high on the list of places to visit from Cairns. Just over an hours drive north surrounded by the Coral Sea on one side and rainforest on the other it’s even closer to the Great Barrier Reef then Cairns. So for anyone after easy access to the reef head to Port Douglas before you slip on a mask and snorkel. It’s also very close to Daintree Rainforest which is one of the oldest forests on earth and also well worth the visit.

Experience the Red Interior in Mareeba

Head in the opposite direction to the ocean and you will quickly find yourself in the Australian Interior. There are some spectacular attractions accessible via a short drive from Cairns. An hours drive west of Cairns lies the famous rodeo town of Mareeba where you can hang out with wallabies at Granite Gorge and get lost in the history of the region at the Mareeba Heritage Museum.
