When to Have a Holiday Down Under

While the majority of tourist destinations in Australia remain accessible and beautiful year round, there are certain times to rent a car in Australia that are better than others.  Have a holiday Down Under with the family this year and begin your plans with a 7 seater car rental in Australia from

Right Now

As we're rounding out the month of January the little school children in Australia are all preparing to go back to school after having the month off.  If you picked up a car rental from Brisbane Airport tomorrow your tour in search of kangaroos and koalas might turn up a fair number of Australian families milking the last few days of vacation, but not likely.  Otherwise, now is a great time to head to Australia... that is from now until mid March.

Easter Holiday

If you can't get the time off until the end of March you might want to hold off a bit longer.  School children get another nice break for Easter and you can expect major tourism areas to be full once again.  This includes the coasts and natural attractions of the Northern Territory, but if you are more interested in a visit to Australia's cosmopolitan attractions then don't let Easter stand in your way!  Aside from business closings in the 4 days of the holiday, this time in March and April is the perfect time to visit cities like Sydney, Perth, and Melbourne.


After February and early March, the next best time to visit Australia by car hire is from August through mid October.  However, the southern coast can be quite nice in May, June, and July, but don't wait until the Australian teenagers are out of school in the end of October!  For about 3 weeks Australian youth celebrate the end of school and there's no guarantee your resort, tours, or dining experiences won't be filled with the sights and sounds of teenage revelry.
