Cities and Towns in Australia
easyCar has car rental facilities in many cities and towns in Australia, including
Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Cairns, Canberra, Darwin, Adelaide and Brisbane, and offers
online booking, so hiring a car is simple.
Australia’s cities and towns have a lot to offer. Sydney, for example, is an extremely
popular destination, with landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney
Opera House, museums, galleries, fantastic shops and great nightlife. However, you
can also use your rental car to get to attractions outside of the centre of Sydney,
including Bondi Beach, Manly Beach, the Blue Mountains and the Hunter Valley, which
is famous for its vineyards.
If you are staying in Brisbane, you can use a rental car to drive to the Gold Coast,
which is famous for its beaches and theme parks. If Melbourne is your base, hiring
a car will enable you to visit Phillip Island or embark on a road trip to explore
part of the Great Ocean Road.
The Great Outdoors
To escape from the cities and see the real Australia, head for the Northern Territory
and spend some time in the Australian Outback. Pick up a rental car in Darwin or
Alice Springs and explore the stunning red landscape. There are many different routes
that you can take in your rental car, including the Red Centre Way, which begins
and ends in Alice Springs, winding through spectacular scenery via the West MacDonnell
Ranges, Glen Helen, Kings Canyon, Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta and Rainbow Valley.
