Driving in Australia


To hire a car in Australia, you must carry a valid NZ licence when driving, in addition to a

valid piece of ID. The driver must also be at least 21 years old (age may vary by car

category). Drivers under the age of 25 may incur a young driver surcharge.


Factor in long distances when you travel, especially in rural or remote areas. There are rest

areas every 80-100 kilometres on motorways and roads. Extreme weather conditions often

affect driving: be aware of flood, heatwaves or bushfire warnings when you travel. In some

areas, a four-wheeled drive is advised.


The national speed limit is 110 km/h on motorways (in NT it is 130 km/h). On single-

carriageway roads the limit is 100 km/h, in built up areas it lowers to 50 km/h and to 40

km/h near schools.


There are payable tolls on motorways around major cities in Australia. Some use a fully

electronic system so you’ll need to buy an e-tag pass to pay. These can be bought in

advance or paid online up to 3 days after you’ve passed through the toll. Read less
