Cairns Rentals

Travel to Cairns, the gateway of the Great Barrier Reef, to explore Australia's tropical northeast region. Hire a cheap car in Cairns to reach the numerous attractions of an area rich in natural beauty and beach resorts- to get to the rainforests of Kundra and Port Douglas, or to go towards Townsville and the Whitsunday Islands.


Cairns is a city in North Queensland, popular with Far Eastern tourists who enjoy shopping in the city center and nature lovers that want to travel to one of the fifteen National Parks of the region. The city's hub is the Cairns Esplanade, an artificial saltwater lagoon. Walk the Esplanade Boardwalk to get a taste of seafood and shop at its stalls, and enjoy the nightlife of Spence Street. Cairns is located only seventeen miles away from Green Island, one of the major attractions of the Great Barrier Reef. You can take a ferry, boat or catamaran to the island, where you can snorkel or dive in the reef or walk in its rainforests. Other popular diving spots located not far from the city are the islands of Michaelmas Cay and Fitzroy Island.   


Rent a cheap car in Cairns- either from the city center or Cairns Airport (CNS) - to drive over to the nearby beaches and rainforests. Most of the beaches suited for swimming are situated north of Cairns, such as Trinity Beach, located a twenty minute drive from the city center and close to the resorts of Palm Cove. Going inland from the coast, you can drive over to Kundra. browse the large variety of handicrafts and produce available a Kundra’s markets and continue to Glacier Rock, a spectacular lookout point. A further hour's drive northwards will take you to Port Douglas, a laid back village that offers great beaches and a jumping point to Opal and Agincourt Reefs. From Port Douglas you can continue to Daintree National Park, one of the oldest rainforests in existence and travel out to the reef from Cape Tribulation.


Alternately you can head south of Cairns in your affordable rental car towards Townsville, the "capital of the tropical North". On your way driving the A1 you will pass Lake Barrine, a freshwater lake situated within the Atherton Tablelands and the impressive Jourama Falls. In Townsville you can visit its Reef HQ Aquarium, interact with wildlife in Billabong Sanctuary and dive at the Yongala wreck site. After a further three hour's drive south you will reach Airlie Beach, known as the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands. Another day trip available from Cairns is to head westwards to the Crystal Cascades, where you can go swimming and drive over to the Mareeba Wetlands, a reserve where you will find an abundance of wildlife, including crocodiles and a bird sanctuary.
