If you’re Brisbane bound and flying into the airport, don’t restrict your options and rely on public transport within the city.

With an affordable hire car from Andy’s Auto Rentals, you can get out of the city and see the best sights of southeast Queensland at your leisure.

Here are five incredible places you should check out:

1. Noosaville

Noosaville and Brisbane City are polar opposites, and as you cruise along Gympie Terrace lined with picnic tables, barbecue shelters and children’s playgrounds you’ll start to see how.

Dine in at one of the many award-winning cafes and restaurants, or set yourself up on a grassy spot under a tree and watch the boats, stand up paddle boarders and kayakers glide along the Noosa River.

2. Toowoomba

Whether it’s in autumn for the gorgeous leaf trail, or spring for the festival of flowers – Toowoomba is widely known as the “Garden City” for a very good reason.

Situated less than two hours west of Brisbane, why not make a day out of it and walk along the many picturesque tracks, or have a picnic lunch among the native flora and fauna?

3. Gold Coast

Aptly known as the theme park capital of Australia, the Gold Coast can offer an experience like no other.

Top this off with 57km of white sandy beaches and hundreds of incredible things to see and do, and you’re sure to find some fun.

4. Montville

The quaint village of Montville is a hidden treasure on the Sunshine Coast, and the perfect spot to find some unique gifts that you won’t find in the city.

The main street is beautifully lined with art galleries, pottery studios, craft cottages, antique stores and boutique gift shops – all to make for a very special day trip.

5. Scenic Rim

Tamborine Cooking School is located in the hinterland about one hour southwest from Brisbane. It offers hands-on cooking lessons using fresh produce from the local region.

Take your culinary skills to the next level with helpful pointers from a qualified chef and finish up with a delicious lunch overlooking the Scenic Rim.

As you can see, there are so many places around Brisbane to be discovered by car.

So pick up a rental car from Andy’s and venture out beyond the city for your next Brisbane stay.
