Hire a car in Sydney
A beach lined metropolis, Sydney is a vision of glamour and laid-back Aussie excellence.
The capital of New South Wales (though often viewed as the true capital Australia), Sydney mesmerizes visitors from all over. While its landmark tourist sites are brilliant, the city is much more than its famous Opera House and postcard images. And despite its urban buzz, Sydney remains one of the friendliest cities in the world.
Delve into the small pockets of the city before driving to the surrounding national parks and sunbaked beaches. Search with easyCar to find the best set of wheels for your trip down under.

Sydney car hire information
Whether visiting or living, Sydney is one of the most expensive cities in the world. But there are ways to save some cash. Take advantage of the city’s free museums and walking tours, spend time at the beaches and indulge in the cheap, but delicious, Thai cuisine.
Australians love their coffee, and we’re not talking standard old French pressed coffee. Here you'll find finely-crafted espressos, lattes and flat whites. In Sydney, independent cafes and coffee roasters prove coffee can be a form of art.
Sydney’s warm season runs November to April, with January being the hottest month. But if you're looking to avoid the crowds and holiday prices, visit from late September to early December or February to April.
Sydney doesn’t hold back when it comes to festivals, so it’s worth considering planning your trip around one. Vivid Sydney, the city’s colourful lights festival, begins in late May and runs till mid June. And, of course, there is the city’s spectacular New Year’s Eve firework display.
With Sydney’s notoriously slow and infrequent public transport system, renting a car is the way to go if you want to save yourself time on the road.

Greater Blue Mountains Drive
Less than a two-hour drive inland from Sydney rests one of the country’s finest areas of biodiversity. The rugged Blue Mountains is a huge area of protected bushland filled with stunning scenery, both above and below the ground.
Branching off the main Greater Blue Mountain Drive, you will find a sprawling 1,200km network of roads. Journey off the main path and onto any of the 18 Discovery Trails, the back roads which wind their way through the mountains, valleys and eucalyptus forests. The small 36km Blue Mountain Drive loop around the cliff tops is definitely one for the books.
Make a pitstop by the iconic rock trio – known as the Three Sisters – for epic vistas, or venture underground and crawl through the Jenolan Caves. No matter the route you take, this UNESCO listed site is sure to impress.
