Car Hire Brisbane to Enjoy the Queensland Coast

Car hire Brisbane is the perfect way to explore the fabulous Gold Coast of Australia. Pick up your auto rental international at Brisbane Airport and you're off to see what this third-largest Australian city has to offer. Australia is another of those countries where you have to learn to keep to the left side of the road!

You get some idea of the bustling nightlife and exciting city atmosphere when you hear that Brisbane is known by locals as Bris Vegas. Sun, beaches, surfing, and partying are one side of this growing city; dozens of theaters, concert halls, art galleries and museums constitute the other side. Downtown Brisbane lies alongside the Brisbane River; be sure to take the 10-minute drive up to Mt. Coottha to get a beautiful panoramic view of the city and its environs in your car hire Brisbane.

Land and Ocean Sights

Everyone loves kangaroos and koalas! Visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and see these lovable animals up close. Before you leave the city, find out important driving information about your national car hire. There are some toll roads leading out of Brisbane, but you can avoid these by taking alternate roads.

Tour the Gold Coast south of Brisbane; it is the country's most popular resort area. If you're the sociable type, explore Surfers Paradise at night--the bars are boisterous! North of Brisbane is the Sunshine Coast with low-rise lodging and a more low-key atmosphere. Fraser Island is a mustsee--the world's largest sand island; take your 4WD! At Noosa Heads, be prepared for close encounters with monitor lizards (goannas) that walk about above the surfing beach!
