    Car Hire Canberra

    Canberra Car HireCanberra is the largest inland city in Australia, created as a purpose-built, skillfully planned city with balances of residential, industrial and agricultural areas. This blend creates an ideal mix of city and country lifestyles in Canberra. As the governing seat of Australia, Canberra is the site of Parliament House, the High Court and many innovative Australian organisations and institutions. The city is focused around Lake Burley Griffith, boasting a number of gorgeous parks for picnics, swimming areas, walking tracks and cycling paths. The Australian War Memorial provides a fascinating insight into the impact of war on Australia as this country was developing into an established nation. An honour roll in the Commemorative Courtyard pays homage to the casualties of war, and is often adorned with red poppies, a symbol of post-war growth. Visit Parliament House perched atop Capital Hill to watch democracy in action. Situated across Lake Burley Griffith is the National Museum of Australia. This iconic yet unique building is home to interpreting and preserving the social history of Australia, including the key issues, events and people that have shaped the nation.

    Situated two and half hours from Canberra, the Snowy Mountains unique landscape, spectacular lakes and white water make the perfect day trip from Canberra. Many ski fields, such as Thredbo and Perisher provide a winter escape with possibilities for skiing and snowboarding. In summer, the fields turn into a mountain biking heaven. Home of Australian cricket legend Don Bradaman, Cootamundra is a nature lover's paradise with its bright blooming wattle trees and rural setting. Tour the caves of the region to discover stalagmites and stalactites at the Yarrangobilly Caves, situated just under three hours from Canberra.

    Canberra has recently introduced Pay & Display parking machines which accept credit cards, smartphone payments, and payment by the ParkMobile app, as well as coins. A Park and Ride facility is available in select suburbs and buses travel to the city centre approximately every 10 minutes. There are no tolls in the Canberra and ACT region. In the surrounding states of New South Wales and Victoria, it is common to have tag accounts for tolls. If you're only using the toll roads occasionally, there are temporary travel passes available as an option to pay without opening an account. The New South Wales and Victorian governments advise to contact the appropriate toll payment providers to make arrangements. Approximate toll costs run between $6-15, depending on the trip.
