  Renting a car
by darthmilmo

I rented a car on two occasions while in Australia. On one occasion, I bought a self-drive tour of Frasier Island. In it we were teamed with fellow travelers. We then were given a 4WD Toyota Landcruiser to explore the island at our own pace.

On another occasion, I rented a car in Tasmania with my friend Lynda. We received the car one morning and within hours we were driving on our own rental car. The good thing about renting a car is that you get the opportunity to stop wherever you want.

Prices vary by region and by vehicle. At times, you can get a rental car for as little as $35 AUS with unlimited miles. It'll be an older model such as the one I had in Tasmania, but who cares. As long as it takes you wherever you want to go it'll be fine. Oh, dont' forget to add the value of gas and oil changes as needed.
