Hire Cars in Sydney
Hire a car and you'll find it much easier to get around Sydney, and to check out the many highlights beyond the city limits.
You'll find car hire companies at Sydney Airport in Mascot, in Alexandria in the inner west and in Sydney's northern suburbs of Willoughby, North Sydney and Lane Cove. In the city, car hire is available in Kings Cross and in the CBD.
Here are some great ideas for day or weekend trips once you've hired a car. Sydney's famous for its beaches, but you'll find the best around an hour from town. Head south along the Grand Pacific Drive to Wollongong - affectionately dubbed ‘The Gong by locals. Or, cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge and explore the Northern Beaches, home to iconic Manly and world-famous Palm Beach.
The Blue Mountains is also an easy day trip around two hours' drive from Sydney. Join the happy snappers at the Three Sisters then enjoy a spot of lunch or afternoon tea. You'll find some great eateries in Leura, including Leura Garage.
Newcastle's another great day trip around 2 hours from Sydney, and this harbour city is famous for its surf beaches and great food scene. From here, it's another hour to the Hunter Valley wine region, which has over 180 wineries to check out. It's worth making a weekend of it, if you have time.
