Car rentals and driving

Exploring the attractions of Sydney and NSW by car will be an unforgettable highlight of your holiday. The state’s vast and varied landscape and the many things to do and see along the way make it ideal for leisurely road trips.

To make it easy rent a car with GPS navigation and discover at your own pace the city of Sydney and the beautiful coastline, national parks, wine regions, pretty rural towns and villages and the awe-inspiring outback of NSW.

In Australia we drive on the left-hand side of the road. Most car rental companies have desks and vehicles at Sydney Airport, and offices near the city centre. They will help you plan your trip, and even allow you to return your car to a different regional office.
