Why should I hire a car?

couple enjoying the road trip

By hiring a car, you can enjoy the joy of traveling. No need to walk from one destination to the other, no more having to ride another transportation to get to a specific place.

Sunshine Coast Attractions not too be missed and a rental car will help you get there!


Ever dreamed about a holiday location that can offer pristine beaches and secluded locations, that is not too far from modern amenities.  This is the Sunshine Coast which has both of these and more.

Australia Zoo – Make sure you visit Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin at the place they call home.  Steve Irwin has left a legacy for animal and nature lovers, and you can feel the passion and effort that he took to make the zoo a popular place for tourists to visit in a rental car.  The park is located inland from the Sunshine Coast, so make sure to book your rental car before planning your day to make traveling there convenient.

Underwater World – With a name like that, you can probably guess what this place is all about.  Halt your rental car and experience a giant walk through aquarium which is the main attraction here, where you can see animals living as they would in the wild.  There are also daily shows, with animals like seals, that are something the kids (or squids as they are called here) will enjoy.

The Nutwork – Experience the behind-the-scene process of making chocolates while the workers are cracking macadamia nuts until the chocolate coating process is done. It is very educational and when you had a taste of the product, you’ll find it addictive and impossible to resist another piece. The Nutworks is located at 37 Pioneer Road in Yandina, Queensland, thus, a rental car is highly recommended for a must-visit chocolate factory in Queensland.
