Sydney Mini Guide

Instantly recognisable from the Harbour Bridge and Opera House in its bay, Sydney is Australia’s most iconic city. Capital of the south Australian state of New South Wales, Sydney is not actually Australia’s capital but is the country’s premier city.

Once you have collected your rental car and are mobile keep an eye on the speed limits as these change frequently. Quite a few of the roads in Sydney operate on a toll system but you can buy a tag or an e-pass so that you are covered.

Arriving you will fly into Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport, and you will be glad to pick up your Rhino rental car. The airport itself is located outside of the city in Mascot and having a car is the best way to navigate this vast continent. If you wish to see other Australian cities while there leave plenty of time. Sydney is situated in the southeast corner of Australia, and it takes 11 hours to get to Brisbane to the north (Pacific Highway), while Melbourne is nine hours’ drive to the southwest (Hume Highway).

This is a country in which Rhino’s unlimited mileage offer comes in handy.
