Cairns CBD Car Rental Information 

Cairns might be predominantly known for its easy access to the Great Barrier Reef, but there are plenty of sights and attractions in town itself that are worth your attention. Even if you’re just using Cairns as a basecamp as you trek through the lush Daintree Rainforest or swim amongst coral gardens, make sure you spend some quality time in the CBD. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

When returning your rental vehicle to our locations please ensure to re-fuel your vehicle to the agreed level.

All vehicles need to be returned to our Location within branch hours.

Please contact the branch directly to discuss.

If you are running late and you won't be able to collect your rental car at the allocated time, it is important to get in touch with the branch you are collecting from so that we can make alternate arrangements.


Leave the cooler climates of New Zealand behind and fly into the never-ending summer city of Cairns. Located in North Queensland, you can fly from Auckland to Cairns in just six hours and enjoy sunny days, warm temperatures, and a bonanza of adventures from when you land.

You’ll find a car that suits you at our Ace Cairns City location. We pride ourselves on suiting our customer’s needs without all the fuss and frills of other rental car hire locations - so that you can get on the road and enjoy your holiday sooner.

Cairns is a great city for both relaxers and adventurers. You could easily spend your whole trip here with plenty of beaches, artificial swimming holes, cafes, bars, and restaurants. But, the close proximity to some incredible natural landscapes makes this city so unique. Read on to find out exactly why Cairns should be your next holiday location.

Relax in Cairns City with Ace

You’ll have a blast in Cairns.

Relax by the Esplanade Lagoon for a leisurely break from the midday heat with the Cairns locals. There’s no beach in the city of Cairns itself, but this artificial waterhole makes up for it and is a popular fixture with locals and tourists alike. If you do want to visit the beach, simply pack up your rental car and drive the short distance to places like Kewarra Beach and Ellis Beach. Both are beautiful, featuring the golden sand and blue oceans that Queensland is famous for.

Once you’ve spent the day by the water, you’ll have likely worked up your appetite. Thankfully, Cairns has ample restaurants and bars to choose from, such as Dundee’s at the Cairns Aquarium, Bellocale Italian Seafood Restaurant, or C’est Bon French Restaurant Cairns.

Escape the City in your Rental Car

It’s time to see what makes North Queensland so special.

Just a couple of hours offshore is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Great Barrier Reef, one of the main attractions for visitors in town. Spanning over 2,300 kilometres, the Great Barrier Reef is an underwater wonderland, with over 2,900 individual reefs and thousands of fish calling this place home. Choose to snorkel, dive, or even sail across the reef; with plenty of different tour options available, you can see the reef exactly how you want to.

But while one of the main attractions is in the water, there are still some amazing ones onshore too. Cairns is truly a one-of-a-kind destination - just a few hours up the coast is where two World Heritage-listed sites meet, and you’ll be able to visit them while you’re here. The Daintree is the oldest living rainforest in the world. At Cape Tribulation the rainforest of the Daintree spills out right to the shore, with just a thin line of sand breaking up the crystal clear ocean from the dense greenery of the ancient Gondwana rainforest.

Cairns is simply fantastic. Escape the hustle and bustle of normal life and head here for a once-in-a-lifetime holiday, where an endless summer provides unforgettable natural attractions. From the underwater wonderland of the Great Barrier Reef to the dense rainforest of The Daintree, and Cape Tribulation, you’ll have an amazing holiday here. We’ll meet you there, at Ace Cairns City.
