Driving tips in Perth

Perth is a long way from the other major cities in Australia, but it definitely rates as worth including on your road trip itinerary. Whether it's hitting the tracks, taking a cruise, or sampling the culture of the area; Perth and the rest of Western Australia are easily accessible if you have a hire car at your disposal. CarHire.com.au has convenient pick-up points throughout Perth and Western Australia, so consider flying to strategic points and picking up your hire car from those airports.  

Day trips are always a popular and enjoyable option for travellers hiring a rental vehicle in Perth. The Perth Hills area is just 30 minutes out of the city. Drive a little further to the waterfalls and rock formations at John Forrest National Park. The Bibbulmun Tracks are another popular destination and start just thirty minutes south of Perth. A full or half day walk is possible with time to spare for dinner and a drink back in Perth itself.

Best places to visit with a hire car in Perth

Locals insist that all visitors should find time to see Rottnest Island. It's only a thirty-minute ferry ride from Fremantle and the island is absolutely amazing. While on Rottnest Island you can meet an interesting little local called a Quokka. You will easily see that this little macropod is a relation of the Kangaroo and Wallaby. Rottnest boasts some of the most spectacular beaches you'll find anywhere in Australia, as well as amazing holiday accommodation. Your rental car will have to stay on the mainland as you are not permitted to take hire cars across bodies of water, however, bike hire is a popular way to get around the island.

Perth Cultural Centre is both an area of central Perth and the collective name for the main buildings of the Art Gallery of Western Australia and is definitely worth a visit. 

Perth Hills (Kalamunda) an easy drive away. Enjoy forest walks and cycle trails, organic cafes and boutique wineries. 

If water is your thing then AQWA makes a great pit stop for all the family (and even the most luxurious rental car can get a bit stuffy after a long day of driving). The AQWA is Western Australia's number one natural attraction. It features Australia's largest aquarium and underwater tunnel, gorgeous living coral reefs, huge sharks, turtles and stingrays and an amazing collection of WA marine animals. It represents some 12 thousand kilometres of the coastline in just a few hundred metres.

Because Western Australia is such a huge state, Perth is a wonderful place to base yourself for your western adventure and a great place to hire a vehicle. Wine Tours of the Margaret River, Snorkelling on Ningaloo Reef, Swan River Cruises from Fremantle and the gold fields of Kalgoorlie are just a sample of the best of the west. And it's all there for you to explore in your carhire.com.au vehicle.

For a great view of the city, explore the lush gardens of Kings Park and you'll be well rewarded. And you can explore the city itself with the free CAT buses then jump into your carhire.com.au vehicle to fully experience the region. The city is heaven for fitness types; take an early morning stroll around the river, where you'll be passed by streams of cyclists, and you can see rowing crews training. 

The Wembley Golf Complex is arguably one of Australia's finest public facilities, with 18 hole courses and a magnificent day and night driving range.

Captain Cook Cruises offer a wide range of luscious cruise options from Perth to Fremantle or upstream to the magnificent Swan Valley wine region if you feel like a break from driving. 

If you are travelling with children or just a big kid at heart check out Perth's Premier Amusement Park, Adventure World. With roller coasters, slides, and so many other rides it would take a few days to get through all of the fun rides.  It has something for those who want to get wet or stay dry.
