Bushcamper/4WD rental from Sydney

Hi,

My husband and I are travelling to Sydney in July and are planning to drive to Cape Tribulation/Cairns.

We are looking for a reliable rental company from whom we can rent a suitable vehicle for the trip. We are planning to be on the road for approx. 4 weeks.

We are open to all great advice as well as both positive and negative experiences.

Thanks :)

I think Sydney to Cairns is rather a well worn tourist highway, no need for a "bushcamper". Or did you have a more adventurous inland route in mind?

Well we're primarily following the coast. We were thinking the likes of a bushcamper so as we could sleep in the car and have all neccessities with us...

Okay, so you don't have any reason to want 4WD? You just want to be able to cook for yourselves, self-catering? And some flexibility with where to stop? Hopefully since you are asking about a "reliable" company cheapness is not your primary factor. (Btw I remember someone from Europe posting that they wished they had known about on-site cabins, maybe it won't suit you but I thought I'd mention it so you are aware of that option.)

We like the thought of being flexible - being able to deviate from the route and drive inland if we feel like it. So that's probably our main priority. The cost isn't that important as we feel that a reliable company will be cheaper in the long run:) The plan is also to take a few nights at a hotel/resort along the Way and stay in a cabin if we get tired of the car - again freedom and flexibility are what we're seeking :)
