    Sydney Airport Car Rental

    Airport Car Rental

    Get your rental car at Sydney Airport! Then head into the city and check out St. Mary’s Cathedral, Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Royal Botanical Gardens, and the Sydney Opera House. Drive your rental through Sydney’s neighborhoods—many landmarks and fantastic restaurants are located in City Centre; Darling Harbour is a lively pedestrian and recreational area with museums, parks, and a wildlife center; City South is home to Australia’s largest Chinatown; and City West is known for its fish markets, seafood restaurants, and pubs.

    Drive your rental to the world-famous Bondi Beach to swim and relax at a beachside bar—it’s a great place to surf and scuba dive too. Manly Beach and Palm Beach are also an easy drive from Sydney. And make sure you take a whale watching tour and visit the Royal National Park to spot kangaroos and wallabies in the wild.

    Sydney’s a great destination, but Australia has so much more to offer. With a longer term car rental you can drive to Melbourne or Adelaide, explore the coast, or head inland to the outback. Picking up your rental car at Sydney Airport and dropping it off in a different city is easy. Start planning your adventure now!

    Sydney Airport is also known as Mascot Airport and Kingford Smith Airport.
