As Australia’s second-largest state, there’s a lot to discover, meaning that renting a car in Queensland is nothing less than necessary to explore everything that the state has to offer. While there are lots of options for public transport such as buses, ferries, trains and a tram network, renting a car in Queensland is the ideal choice to visit all of the state at your own pace and with no restrictions. Home to some of Australia’s biggest attractions such as the Great Barrier Reef, also known as the world’s largest coral reef, you’ll be able to see thousands of tropical fish and marine life. Otherwise, other popular attractions include Whitehaven Beach, Australia Zoo, Daintree Forest, Hamilton Island, Dreamworld, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, among others.
Queensland allows for the ideal ride with your rental car with good quality and flat roads. Any type of rental car will be more than ideal to drive the easily accessible roads around the state. Don’t worry about driving abroad in Queensland as it’s very similar to the UK. Both UK and Queensland citizens drive on the left-hand side of the road so it’s easy to do, even for younger aged drivers. Speed limits will also vary. Built-up residential areas will average at 50km/h (31mph) and then up to 100km/h (62mph) in rural areas. Speed limits are usually not signposted, meaning that drivers must adjust their speed limit accordingly to the most suitable speed of the road conditions.
