Four of us are spending the first week in Aug travelling around (have managed to get accomodation booked) and are really looking forward to the trip. It seems that 2wd will be all that we need and we have been told about icecarrental. Has anyone used them? We're like to find out how old rental cars tend to be (we found in New Zealand that the cheaper local hirers had older vehicles). Any other recommended companies? Also will we have any problems not being able to access the more spectacular waterfalls etc without 4wd (because of hire insurance restrictions)? Thanks in advance for any help - couldn't imagine planning a holiday without the TA forums!
