Things to see and do with a car rental in Cairns

Things to see and do with a car rental in Cairns

Renting a car in Cairns makes it a whole lot easier to see the countless sights and attractions around town and throughout northern Queensland. Drive just 15 minutes north and you’ll reach the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, where you can take a 7.5 kilometre gondola ride over some of the country’s most beautiful scenery. Or, keep driving north to visit the surreal Daintree Rainforest, where you can explore the oldest rainforest in the world.
In town, allow plenty of time to explore the esplanade, boardwalk and lagoon, and to visit Rusty’s Markets during the weekend. Also ensure you pay a visit to the gorgeous Crystal Cascades, a series of waterfalls and swimming holes just out of town.

Thanks to Cairns’ northern location, it’s the perfect place to use as a base for exploring the Great Barrier Reef. And of course, the glittering beaches of the Queensland coast are all worth visiting, so be sure to stop off at places like Port Douglas and Palm Cove along the way.
Just keep in mind that you are not permitted to drive to Cooktown via the coast road with your SIXT car rental from Cairns (you can, however, take the inland route).



Hiring a SIXT car is the ultimate way to explore all that the north tip of Australia has to offer. Jet-setters come from all over the world to experience the wonders and beauty of Australia's World Heritage areas. Go white water rafting in Cairn's nearby rivers, see the lovely butterfly filled town of Kuranda and visit the Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef with your rental car.

It's hot in Cairns… really hot, and that means flip flops and singlets are everyday attire. Thankfully, SIXT hire cars are made for Aussie conditions with air conditioning to give you relief from the sizzling climate. Our vehicles have the style and features to suit your tropical vacation or corporate junket and allow you to cruise the streets of beautiful Cairns and beyond in comfort.
