We recommend acquiring a rental if you want to explore the beautiful sites in Queensland. While Queensland boasts a modern and extensive transport system, you can only rely on public transport like buses, trains, and ferries if you’re touring destinations in the southeast part of the state. Public transport cannot reach attractions in the rest of the state, making rental cars a must-have. Moreover, rental cars give you the freedom to tour destinations at your own pace. On the other hand, public transport like trains and buses have a fixed schedule.
There are several things to note about the driving laws and regulations in Queensland before you hit the road. For instance, driving is on the left in the state while you overtake on the right. Traffic circles operate clockwise, so always give way to those on your right at roundabouts and intersections. Seatbelts are also compulsory for all occupants in the vehicle. Driving under the influence of drugs is an offense punishable by a fine. The BAC limit is 0.05, and it's common to find police on roadsides of certain roads conducting breath tests. Roads in Queensland have set speed limits that you should adhere to when driving. The speed limit on most highways ranges from 110 to 120 km/h (70 to 75 mph), while in the city, it's 50 km/h (30 mph). The speed is lower around school zones and residential areas.
Most car hire agencies in Queensland allow travelers of at least 21 years to rent a car. However, some agencies allow anyone above 18 years to rent a car. Any renter between 18 and 24 will incur an additional daily underage surcharge. Anyone who has attained the minimum renting age requires a valid driver’s license printed in English and a major credit card with matching names. If the license is in a language that isn’t English, you require an international driver’s permit.
