Sunshine Coast Car Hire

Car Hire on the Sunshine Coast is essential to make the most of your visit here. The Sunshine Coast offers everything you could ever need in a holiday destination. With its beautiful beaches, volcanic peaks, freshwater lakes, lush rainforests and ancient Hinterland villages, there is so much to do and see here that you need to hire a car to make the most of your visit.

As one of the most popular Sunshine Coast car rental companies, Alpha Car Hire offers the widest selection of quality vehicles at the most affordable rates. With our extremely competitive rates, it is often more cost-effective to hire a car from us than pay for taxis. Plus, all our vehicles come with a generous 500km per day mileage allowance so you can explore this stunning region without having to worry about overages.

Why hire a car in Sunshine Coast?

The Sunshine Coast covers more than 4,100 sq miles in Southern Queensland, stretching from Caloundra in the south to the Cooloola National Park in the north. Here you will find some of Australia’s top surf spots, world-renowned beach resorts, natural mangrove forests, freshwater lakes and more.

Hiring a car on the Sunshine Coast is the only way to truly explore everything this beautiful region has to offer. While public transport is reliable in this part of Queensland, it only connects the major towns and cities, which means you’ll miss out seeing the beauty of the Hinterland, the multicoloured dunes at Teewah, or the natural mangrove forests at Maroochy Wetlands.

Alpha Car Hire Sunshine Coast has a large selection of vehicles to suit all budgets. So no matter if you’re in town for a business conference or enjoying a family camping trip in the Amamoor National Park, we can provide you with the right hire car at the best price. And with all our cars coming with a generous 500km per day mileage allowance, you’ll have the freedom to explore as much as you like without worrying about excess mileage charges.

Places to visit when hiring a car in Sunshine Coast

Hinterland – You can’t visit the Sunshine Coast without exploring the natural beauty of the Hinterland. Here you will find lush rainforests, volcanic peaks and picturesque waterfalls. So pack a picnic and head for the hills to explore one of Australia’s most beautiful regions. For art lovers, we recommend the art trail which will take you on a tour of the region’s art scene and give you the chance to meet real artists as they work to capture the awesome natural beauty of the mountains and seascape.

Caloundra – Settled between the Glass Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Caloundra offers miles of stunning coastal paths which connect many of the region’s best beaches. Here you can learn to surf or just relax in one of the beach cafes. For those with a little more energy, the ocean pool at Kings Beach is perfect for a swim. Alternatively, head on down to the aquatic playground at Dicky Beach which offers great fun for all the family.

Mooloolaba – If you are looking for a little adventure then Mooloolaba is the place to be. Here you will find whale charters which leave the boardwalk each day from June through November. This will give you the chance to see magnificent humpback whales up close. The picturesque town of Mooloolaba is also perfect for a light lunch before exploring one of the boutique shopping arcades.

Maroochydore – The home of Alpha Car Hire Sunshine Coast, for those in search of a little sophistication, Maroochydore offers a vibrant, multicultural vibe with lots of trendy cafes and a thriving live music scene.
