Brisbane City by Hire Car

After driving your car rental to your Brisbane hotel and settling in, the perfect place to start any trip to Brisbane is the South Bank area. Here you will find the Queensland Cultural Precinct - which houses the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Queensland Art Gallery, the Gallery of Modern Art, the State Library and the Queensland Museum - all of which offer an incredible insight into the culture and history of this fascinating state, as well as a look into its thriving historical and contemporary arts scene. As if this wasn't enough the South Bank is also home to a number of man-made beaches and lagoons, as well as some excellent markets and no end of options for eating out.

After discovering some of the culture and history of Queensland and its capital, a great place to head is the city's magnificent Botanical Gardens, where you can see some of Australia's unique flora and fauna. From here you can drive your rental car to Queen Street Mall for some shopping or to Mount Coot-tha for fine views out over the city. In the evening head to Fortitude Valley to sample some of Australia's best nightlife and get a taste of Queensland's thriving music scene, which is centred on Brisbane. A cruise on the Brisbane River is another great way to see the wonderful architecture and beautiful gardens and parks of the city.

Beyond Brisbane in your Rental Car

While there is more than enough to keep you busy within the city itself, the real advantage of a hire car from Brisbane International Airport Car Rental in Queensland is the ease with which you can reach some of the beautiful natural sights that the Sunshine State has to offer. The crystal clear waters of Moreton Bay, with their wide array of marine life, are just a short drive from Brisbane in your rental car. Between mid-July and November you can go whale watching; at other times of the year you can feed dolphins and perhaps even catch a glimpse of the magnificent, but increasingly rare, dugong. Another must-see attraction, if you are keen to experience more of this country's fascinating wildlife, is the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world's first and largest koala sanctuary.

When it is time to leave, you can drop your car rental at Brisbane International Airport Car Hire and depart with the least amount of hassle necessary, allowing yourself the opportunity to get the most from this fabulous city and its easy going way of life.
