Capricorn Coast car rental

Capricorn Coast

Rockhampton Airport is the major gateway to the Capricorn Coast and hosts many car hire operators, including Avis, Budget, Thrifty, and Hertz. Avis, Budget and Thrift also have offices in the Rockhampton CBD. Like many areas of central and northern Queensland, a car is an absolute must.

Many visitors have already hired in either Brisbane to the south or Cairns or Townsville to the north, but for those flying into the beef capital of Australia, there are plenty of options with prices starting from around $23 a day. The coastal town of Yepoon, a 30-minute drive from ‘Rocky’ also offers a car hire service through some of the hotels. Check at reception for details.



Nearby towns of Clermont, Emerald and Gladstone also offer value car hire with many of the national brand names based there.
For local hire, Little Johnny’s Car Hire at the Keppel Bay Marina also offers some great deals.
There’s a great range of vehicles on offer for Capricorn Coast car hire customers, from small hatchbacks to large sedans, people movers and 4WDs.

Prices vary, according to size and length of hire, and include full insurance and roadside breakdown assistance, but you must be over 21, have a valid driving licence and a credit card to validate your booking.

Robust Campers and Capricorn Camper hire, in Rockhampton, also offer cost effective deals. At the other end of the scale, Business Class Limos, based in Rockhampton, offer chauffeur driven luxury. A word of caution when driving in remote regional areas, especially at night. Kangaroos will often converge on roadsides, so drive carefully.
