Top tips for hiring a car in Maroochydore

  • Characterised by the joining of the Maroochy River, Paynter River and Petrie Creek, a hire car in Maroochydore offers access along the banks where public transport doesn’t reach. You can drive to the border of Parklands Conservation Park and Mooloolah River National Park before hiking through the dense forests to escape the city life. Driving inland to the famous Big Pineapple takes roughly 20min while a connection of bus services is closer to 1h. Hiring a car in Maroochydore also allows you to pack towels, boards and food for the beach without having to carry it far. Having your own vehicle also provides a reprieve from the warm Queensland sun, meaning no waiting outside for services to arrive.
  • The reception desks of Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz and Thrifty are located next to the baggage claim in the arrivals area of Sunshine Coast Airport (MCY). It’s only a short walk to the carpark, so you won’t need to carry your luggage far to pick up your vehicle.
  • Be mindful when crossing one of Maroochydore’s many bridges, as the river levels can rise after heavy rainfall. Ensure you can see directly across the bridge and there are no flooded sections. Cyclists are common throughout the city, especially along the coast in Cotton Tree, so keep a watchful eye on the side of the road and provide at least 1.5 m of space when overtaking.
  • The worst traffic periods typically stretch from 07:00–09:00 and 16:00–19:00. Congestion is most severe along Sunshine Mwy and Maroochydore Rd as commuters make their way in and out of Brisbane. Plaza Pde also experiences heavy traffic throughout the day and it is best to avoid it if you are visiting the central shopping district.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Maroochydore for $33 or less
  • Book your car hire in Maroochydore at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
