Car hire in New South Wales is a terrific way to get around the state, despite the region’s large size. Driving is done on the left-side, and most roads in urban and rural areas are well-surfaced. 100km/h is the speed limit outside urban zones. Parts of major highways, including the Pacific Highway, are two-lane roadways, so care is required when driving through these areas.
New South Wales is home to many iconic landmarks of Australia. Just two hours west of Sydney lie the scenic Blue Mountains which boast bushwalking trails, caves and hiking spots. Over an hour south of the capital are Shoalhaven’s famous crystal blue beaches and the town of Nowra. Wine lovers will adore the Hunter Valley and its plethora of vineyards, which can be discovered effortlessly with car rental in New South Wales.
The best time to visit New South Wales depends largely on the type of holiday. Coastal cities are best visited during the summer months between December and February, when temperatures soar above 28°C. Skiers should visit Perisher Blue and the Snowy Mountains between June and July, when temperatures reach below 0°C at times and there is generally good snow cover.
