Car Rental Brisbane City

A thriving and contemporary metropolis, Brisbane is located on Australia’s eastern seaboard and boasts a multitude of vacation options for all character types, from rainforest retreats to beach breaks, luxury shopping to island hopping.

Brisbane is Queensland’s largest cultural hub, with a cosmopolitan populace embracing its many multicultural communities. Rising to international prominence after hosting the 1982 Commonwealth games, Brisbane has garnered much worldwide attention in the years since as a sun-kissed holiday hotspot. Much of the experiences to be had in Brisbane could be made wildly more accessible with just one addition to your itinerary - a brief stop to hire a car.

Like other Australian cities, Brisbane comprises a sprawling set of suburbs and settlements that all tally toward its population of 2.2 million people. Due to the vastness of the Australian continent, Brisbane city is similarly sized to the Italian city of Milan yet has only half the population. This is welcome news when considering car hire, as preparing to drive through Brisbane’s network of roads and highways can be daunting to some overseas travellers (remember to drive on the left!). Traffic is certainly present but not so much of a nuisance, meaning less time on the wheel and more on the heel.

Often overlooked as a vacation hotspot by the looming shadows of Sydney and Melbourne, Brisbane has an abundance of experiences and activities with considerably less emphasis on haste than its southern cousins. If visiting Melbourne or Sydney prior, you may just feel like you - the tourist - are the one rushing. With its enviable, laid-back vibe that permeates into all, Brisbane has been ranked the 10th most liveable - and happiest - city in the world. 

Create your story at Story Bridge

Where else to start your story than at Story Bridge?

Take your hire car to Kangaroo Point and park up to get hands-on with this colossal megastructure. Opened to the public in 1940, the heritage-listed steel behemoth is the largest of its kind Australia wide.

You may be thinking that climbing a principally practical structure is ‘down under’ everything else on your bucket list, and you’d be forgiven for thinking so. But it may surprise you to know that this bridge is incredibly popular with holidaymakers and locals alike, thanks in part to the sensational panoramic views you’ll witness upon reaching the viewing platform, which lies 80 metres above sea level. 

Gaze in any direction, as the climb offers 360 degrees of uninterrupted views of many of Brisbane’s iconic landmarks, including the Glasshouse Mountains to the North, Moreton Bay to the east, world-heritage listed Lamington National Park to the south and the Brisbane Forest Park to the west. 

Look down if you dare, as more than 100,000 cars whiz across the bridge daily, passing to safety over the mighty Brisbane River, the deepest in Australia. The bridge offers extra options for the adrenaline-fuelled traveller, from leaning out over traffic, to abseiling and walking the plank.

One of the most inspiring times to make the climb is at dusk when the city lights begin to illuminate its skyline, the sun sets peacefully over the horizon and draws a close to another Australian day. Visiting the Story Bridge is definitely not one to miss and makes for a legitimately ‘awesome’ trip.
