Top tips for hiring a car in Port Douglas, QLD

placeholder


Port Douglas road rules and driving conditions

Port Douglas road rules are similar to the rest of Australia, meaning you'll need to drive on the left-hand side of the road and ensure your Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) is below 0.05 at all times. The one thing to be mindful of when driving in the town is the changing weather conditions that may influence your driving.

Heavy rain can make some roads impassable and flooding may make some roads difficult to drive along, even with a 4WD. Rain is most common in Port Douglas during wet season, usually between November and April.


Port Douglas's rush hour and busiest roads

Rush hour in Port Douglas is usually between 8am to 10am, and 5pm to 7pm. The busiest roads to avoid during these times include Macrossan Street and Captain Cook Highway.


Do I need to hire a car in Port Douglas?

Port Douglas car hire is recommended, as public transport is limited and driving will give you the flexibility you need to make the most of your trip. To make the most of your time in the coastal town and experience all it has to offer (as well as travel to surrounding landmarks), it's best to drive. If you're visiting the area and don't have a vehicle on hand, why not hire one on Turo?
