It has everything to offer, from fantastic museums, art galleries and heritage sites, to stunning beaches, parks and gardens, as well as being one of the world's most ethnically diverse cities. With a car rental at Sydney International Airport Car Hire you can experience it all, at your own pace and in your own time. With a huge variety of rental cars on offer, you will be sure to find something to fit your needs and allow you to get the most out of your time in this fabulous city.

Sydney City by Hire Car

Once you have found your hotel and settled in, the perfect way to start your trip to Sydney is to drive your rental car down to the Rocks, the place where European settlers first landed and the history of this magnificent city began. Lying directly below the iconic Harbour Bridge, here you can pick up one of the historical maps and conduct your own heritage walk, discovering the fascinating beginnings of this city for yourself. Also be sure to explore the boutiques, markets, cafes and pubs, which make the Rocks the thriving, trendy area that it is today. From here it is only a short walk to the Sydney Opera House, where you can stop off for a drink and some entertainment or else just marvel at this modern architectural gem and the sweeping views out across the Harbour.

Once you have soaked up some of the culture and history of the city, the best place to head is one of the famous beaches, which line the city's eastern edge. You can't go wrong with the ever-talked of Bondi Beach or one the stunning Northern Beaches, such as Manly. These are easily accessible in your rental car and once here the city will feel miles away. Either lie back and relax on the sun-kissed sand or perhaps go join in with the swathes of Sydneysiders surfing amongst the crashing waves. At many of the beaches walks along the headland, such as the Manly Scenic Walkway, offer breathtaking views both out to sea and back at the city.

Beyond the city in your rental car

The real benefit of a car rental at Sydney International Airport Car Hire is the ease with which you can reach some of the country's spectacular outback, lying just beyond Sydney's outer edges. The Blue Mountains, about an hour from Sydney's CBD in your hire car, gives a tantalising glimpse into the majestic beauty of the Australian landscape. Here you can hike and trek through the bush, stand awe-struck as you gaze at the Three Sisters, one of Australia's best loved natural landmarks, or take part in the extensive range of outdoor sports and activities available here. Featherdale Wildlife Park is also in the area, offering the opportunity to see some of the truly unique wildlife that calls this country home. For wine lovers Hunter Valley, to the north of Sydney, is also within easy striking distance, in your rental car.

After all this, leaving may well be hard, but at least with your car rental at Sydney International Airport Car Hire you won't have to worry about getting back to the airport. Drive your rental car all the way there, dropping it off where you picked it up, and avoid all the hassle of taxis and public transport, allowing yourself the opportunity to savor every last moment in this unforgettable city.
