Driving in Australia

To rent a car in Australia, you must have a valid driver’s licence issued in the country you live in as well as piece of ID with you.

Factor in long distances when you travel, especially in rural or remote areas. There are rest areas every 50 to 60 miles on highways. Extreme weather conditions often affect driving: be aware of flood or bushfire warnings when you travel. In some areas, a four-wheeled drive is advised.

The national speed limit is 110 km/h on highways. There are some variations, including the Northern Territory which is 130 km/h. On two-lane roads the limit is 100 km/h, in built up areas it lowers to 50 km/h and to 40 km/h near schools.

There are payable tolls on highways around major cities in Australia. Some use a fully electronic system so you’ll need to buy an e-tag pass to pay. These can be bought in advance or paid online up to 3 days after you’ve passed through the toll.
