The Europcar car hire experience at Townsville Airport

Our extensive range of makes and models means you can choose the right car for you, however long your journey and whatever you need to carry. If you want a large family or prestige car, try the Mitsubishi Pajero or Holden Commodore. Or something smaller such as the Hyundai I30 might suit you better. And if you want a compact city car the Kia Rio is an excellent choice for local sightseeing and exploring!

We offer a friendly, flexible service with daily, weekly and monthly car rental options covering both short and long-term car hire needs. Our three-step booking process is hassle-free and when you arrive at our station, our highly trained staff will get you on the road as quickly as possible.

Plus, you have the option to drop your hire car off at a Europcar station close to your destination if you only want to make a one-way trip. The choice is yours!

Discover Townsville and surroundings by car

Townsville is the largest tropical town in Australia and enjoys more than 320 days of sunshine a year! With the port at one end of town, and The Strand, a palm-lined promenade along the beach at the other end, there are plenty of attractive places to explore here. You can also hop aboard a cruise to the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef from here – definitely an experience not be missed!

Travel out of town in your hire car to enjoy the open road and make the most of your rental. If you fancy exploring the outback, head 140km inland to Charters Towers, a quintessential historic outback town. At its heyday during the gold rush in the 19th century, many of the original buildings are still intact and open for visitors, including the Stock Exchange Building and Arcade, and Lyall’s Store. If you’re feeling lucky, you can pan for gold at the The Miners Cottage!

Two hours north of Townsville is Wallaman Falls in the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Wet Tropics. The highest single-drop waterfall in Australia, the water cascades 268 metres into the pools at the bottom. It’s particularly impressive when a recent rainfall increases the flow of water! The surrounding rainforests are equally as remarkable and the whole area is simply stunning.
