Mission Beach and Cape Tribulation are some of the most popular beaches near central cairns. The roads are excellent and easy to navigate so drive with confidence past all of these landmarks and enjoy the view.
The rainforest surrounding Cairns is spectacular, with many spots extremely popular with tourists and locals alike.
You can drive to most of these natural attractions easily to witness large waterfalls, swim in peaceful lagoons and even go on kayak adventures. Whatever your travel style you can find a spot to enjoy.
Driving to Cooktown is a minimum two-day rental as we don’t recommend any nighttime driving on open highways purely for your safety as it is a priority. Cooktown can only be accessed via the in-land road as it is sealed.

Visitors most often hire a car for either 1, 3 or 5 days. Research the activities that you really want to do in Cairns before making your final decision as to how long to hire your car for.
Because it gets so hot in Cairns in the summer months you should be aware of what you leave in the car as the cabin is likely to heat up fast.
