Delve-into-Australias-top-National-Parks

There are too many spectacular national parks in Australia for us to possibly list them all here, but we’ve taken the liberty to find some of the best. We recommend hiring a rental car in Oz and taking the time to explore some of these…

Royal National Park, NSW
Ace-rental-royal-national-park-2

Just south of Sydney, along the Grand Pacific Drive, is the Heritage-listed ‘Nasho’. This is the second-oldest national park in the world, and features a great mixture of bush, boardwalk and beach.

Sydney Harbour National Park, NSW
Ace-rental-sydney-harbour

The only urban park in this list, Sydney Harbour is home to excellent historic attractions, such as Cockatoo Island, Fort Denison and Hornby Lighthouse.

Washpool National Park, NSW

Washpool, northwest of Coffs Harbour, is a great vantage point to explore the UNESCO Gondwana Rainforests of Australia. More than 140 species of bird have been spotted here, so bring binoculars!

Blue Mountains, NSW
Ace-rental-blue-mountains

West of Sydney, you’ll find the stunning Blue Mountains. If you’re not crossing a staggeringly deep gorge on a transparent-floored cable car here, you’ll be snapping photos of unique natural sights.

Ace-rental-undara-volcanic

Out in Gulf Savannah country, you’ll find Australia’s own surreal lava tube formation at Undara Volcanic National Park. This in addition to the vast Outback surroundings, which are a must-see.

Great Barrier Reef, QLD

Ace-rental-great-barrier-reef2

 

Stretching from Bundaberg to Cape York (3,000 kilometres), the unparalleled Great Barrier Reef has the largest collection of coral in the world, not to mention thousands of aquatic species. You can dive, snorkel and cruise here – or all three.

Daintree National Park, QLD
Ace-rental-Daintree-National-Park1

In close proximity to Cairns is Daintree National Park, part of the UNESCO Wet Tropics. This is one of the oldest rainforests in the world, and is split into two sections: Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation.

Nambung National Park, WA
Ace-rental-nambung

Drive north of Perth to Nambung National Park and you’ll be in a landscape that almost feels alien. The Pinnacles are here – odd limestone pillars rising from the earth, scattered around the desert.

Cape Le Grand National Park, WA
Ace-rental-cape-le-grande

Down by Esperance is Cape Le Grand, the ultimate place to visit if you want to watch kangaroos sunbathe on untouched beaches, or even go rock climbing at Frenchman’s Peak.

Flinders Ranges, SA
Ace-rental-flinders-ranges

One of the most popular parks in the country can be found in South Australia. The Flinders Ranges are home to Aboriginal rock art and sites of early European settlement, plus the amazing natural amphitheatre, Wilpena Pound.

Kangaroo Island, SA
Ace-rental-kangaroo-island2

There are a few national and conservation parks to be found on pristine Kangaroo Island, all of which are well worth your time. Seal Bay is home a 1,000-year-old sea lion colony, and the fascinating rock formations of Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks are in Flinders Chase.

Grampians National Park, VIC
Ace-rental-grampians-national-park

As one of Victoria’s top holiday hot spots, you’re in for a treat when you road trip to the Grampians. These sandstone mountains are an icon of the local area, and the forests are filled to the brim with wildlife.

Port Campbell National Park, VIC
Ace-rental-port-campbell

We love the Great Ocean Road so much that we’ve featured two of its parks on this list. Port Campbell is where you’ll find the 12 Apostles, one of the most famous sights in the entire state. The Island Archway and London Bridge are definitely close seconds.

Great Otway National Park, VIC
Ace-rental-otway

Closer to Torquay, Great Otway is a park of two halves: One blends sparkling beaches with craggy coastline, and the other is swathed in luminous green forests, teeming with animals, waterfalls and delightfully placid lakes. To get the most out of your road trip, consider visiting both!

Ace Rental Cars Rent the Experience options 

RTE-logo-Social-cut

A rental car’s a rental car. A moving metallic shell capable of travelling at relatively high speeds from one point to another, safely harbouring people and said people’s material goods en route. It’s a means of getting from A to B, a functional requirement, a literal vehicle to something much bigger. An experience.

An experience is something that helps to define us, that inspires us, that makes us more alive, more human. It’s a breath of mountain fresh air. The feel of a wind on our face. The filtered orange glow of a breaking dawn. The pulse-racing rush of adrenaline, the quivering anticipation of a journey unknown.

An experience is something that validates our sense of who we are. It becomes weaved into the fabric of our existence. It can be brought to mind on a whim to help us escape to a better time. It lives on in us. Forever.
