Cairns Driving Information


 
Driving is on the left side of the road.


 
All Cairns Airport rental cars are automatic transmission.


 
Your local drivers' licence is required.


An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).


 
Cairns Driving Stress Level: 6/10

You'll need a 4X4 to tackle the area from Cooktown north through Cape York and some of the desert roads. It can be expensive, and finding an automatic transmission 4X4 is difficult. Even with a 4X4, roads in the tropics can be harrowing, and often impassable, during and immediately following the wet season.
