Cairns 4WD Rental & Bush Camper Hire

Hiring out 4WD’s and Bush Campers is our specialty, available in a wide range of sizes & combinations, both as Ground Tent GT & Roof Top Tent RTT set ups. Fitted with Camping Equipment Packages tailored to the number of people travelling, our Bush Campers are the ideal vehicle for your epic off-road adventures. With your Cairns 4WD Hire, feel confident in striking out and seeing the diverse natural beauty of North Queensland, from the remote coast to lush rainforests to picturesque tablelands to the off-road-only epic adventure that is Cape York. Enjoy a memorable 4WD holiday, traveling where you want with the freedom to stop and linger at your leisure.

Start off in the vibrant city of Cairns, with its beautiful city beaches and easy access to rainforests and mangroves just a short drive from the city centre. Cairns is also known as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Earth’s largest living structure. There is a myriad of ways to see this natural marvel, including snorkelling and diving but also submarine rides, seaplane flights and day cruises. The many islands off the coast of Cairns each have their own personality, from coral cays where you can live out castaway fantasies to larger islands complete with posh resorts.

North Queensland is blessed with a second UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site in its Wet Tropics, running practically parallel to the Great Barrier Reef. Encompassing nearly 900,000 hectares of mostly tropical rainforest, this area is prized for its rich, unique biodiversity. Reserve your 4×4 and explore the rugged, beautiful terrain with the kids in tow, taking in its sweeping forest landscapes, scenic waterfalls, wild rivers, stunning gorges and coastal scenery. The rainforests here are superb for bushwalking, picnicking and swimming in water holes and waterfall-fed pools. Impressive cave systems, including the Chillagoe Caves and the Undara Lava Tubes stir the imagination through their otherworldly formations created over millions of years. Spend time getting to know this wonderfully diverse area in your fully-equipped Bush Camper, with off-road drives around Lake Tinaroo or along the Bloomfield Track through remote tropical wilderness.

The off-road jewel of Northern Queensland has got to be beautifully rugged Cape York. Travel along the Peninsula Development Road and following an old telegraph line past cattle stations and indigenous communities on a stellar 1,200 km journey to the very top of Australia with plentiful options to veer off and explore the Eastern and Western Cape. Retaining much of its charm from its gold rush days and physically accessible to a select few willing to brave rough roads, Cape York is a brilliant 4WD adventure with deep creek crossings, heavily corrugated dirt roads and a host of other obstacles to navigate. However, the reward is stepping foot on the northernmost point of mainland Australia and immersing yourself in the wild beauty of the peninsula.

With your Cairns 4WD Rental & Bush Camper Hire, prepare to enjoy an epic adventure your way. Be in full control of your itinerary, deciding where to go, choosing your on-road or off-road destinations, and how long to stay in each place. Feel free to stay longer in your favourite spots, taking advantage of the many convenient campgrounds and caravan parks scattered throughout the region. Our Bush Campers come fully-equipped with camping gear to allow for maximum self-sufficiency while being easy to set up and take down, leaving you more time to enjoy the destination. While most car hire companies can restrict where you can drive, all our vehicles are permitted off-road, so you can take your Cairns 4WD or Bush Camper on dirt tracks and unsealed roads if they are on HEMA maps and are open and safe for passage. All our vehicles come with manufacturer’s warranties, and for additional peace of mind, we are pleased to offer Emergency and Breakdown Assistance. In the unlikely event of a vehicle failure, we are ready and willing to promptly replace your Cairns 4WD Hire (subject to availability).

With Cairns 4WD Rental & Bush Camper Hire, Australia’s north-eastern coastline and beautifully forested interior is yours to discover. Spend a few days in laid-back Cairns, swimming and tanning in the giant swimming lagoon by the city’s promenade before exploring the UNESCO-inscribed Great Barrier Reef on day trips aboard cruises, submarines and visits to the islands, including unspoilt Fitzroy Island. Or head inland to the nearby Atherton Tablelands, home to swaths of pristine rainforest, lush tropical farms and stunning waterfalls. The Tully River and Lake Tinaroo offer water sports for the whole family, ranging from leisurely swimming to heart-stopping white-water rafting. Get up-close and personal with the Wet Tropics by visiting attractions including the Mamu Rainforest Canopy Walkway, Paronella Park and Granite Gorge Nature Park while caving enthusiasts will want to add the the Chillagoe-Mungana Caves National Park and the Undara Lava Tubes to their itinerary. Off-roading adventures await, particularly around the northern end of Daintree National Park via the Bloomfield Track and the CREB Track as well as the Tinaroo Range road network through the Lamb Range rainforest just a little over an hour’s drive southwest of Cairns. For the ultimate 4WD journey through untamed wilderness, Cape York is where it’s at. Take the journey towards Australia’s northernmost point driving through Cooktown, several old telegraph stations in Musgrave, Moreton and Bramwell, as well as some beautiful Aboriginal country featuring some of Australia’s best rock art sites. Once at the tip, spend a few days based in Bamaga, Seisia or Punsand Bay and relax on the secluded beaches, enjoy some excellent adventure fishing or island hop through the Torres Strait.

Experience all that North Queensland has to offer, from coast to forest to outback with your Cairns 4WD Rental & Bush Camper Hire. Follow your sense of adventure wherever it takes you, whether on sealed roads or rough, off-road terrain while enjoying the greater comfort, privacy and flexibility that comes with a self-drive holiday.
