Driving in Maroochydore

Located in Queensland, you will need a valid driving licence to hire a car in Maroochydore. For trips during longer than three months, make sure to obtain an international driving permit from your home country before travelling. It is recommended to get one of these permits if travelling to other Australian territories.

There are several transit lanes across the Queensland territory, if you are travelling with 2 people you may use T2 lanes, and cars carrying 3 or more passengers may use both T2 and T3 lanes.

There are tolls to pay on Australia motorways. At most of these you can pay using cash or debit/credit cards, but some operate under a fully electronic system. In this case you should buy an e-tag pass to pay. These can be bought in advance or paid online up to 3 days after you have passed through the toll.

For longer road trips you should be aware of the size and remoteness of some roads. Roads are long, large and wide over much of Australia, but be aware that services can be few and far between due to the scale of the country. Make sure you are prepared with plenty of fuel, water and food.
