For a 4WD camper rental Cairns vehicle that’s built to tackle our tough surroundings, this vehicle can tick all of the boxes. As Land Rovers are typically military cars it makes sense to put their power to use in the Far North Queensland outback, whether you’re visiting Cooktown, Cape York, or travelling the Bloomfield Track. Built between 2004 – 2008, these turbo diesel 4WD's are able to take you through un chartered territory without a hassle, making for a comfortable drive around this stunning area. If you’re thinking of a 4WD camper rental Cairns to visit Cape York in, this is the one for you. Simply pull up to a site at the end of each day, set up the side awning, and you’ve got a relaxing space to enjoy a cold drink from your very own fridge.

The value of the “Credit Card Bond” you choose to take will be “Debited” from your credit card for the duration of the hire. Please ensure you have sufficient funds to cover this debit (you may need to pay additional funds onto your credit card) or take an Option Reduction to lower the bond. Please note that the Debited Bond takes on average 14 days (but can take up to 60 days) before funds appear back on your credit card. This is due to the slowness of individual banks processes which we cannot be held accountable for.

DAILY RATES are calculated per calendar day and not per 24 hour period.

ROAD RESTRICTIONS These vehicles go from Cairns to Cape York on a regular basis and visit all the "Must See" tourist places on the way. The vehicles can be driven on recognised unsealed roads as long as the weather at the time is suitable for such a trip and this is why the vehicles can only be taken from Cairns to Cape York during the months of June to November. Some sections of roads like the "Gunbarrel Highway" on Cape York are not allowed to be accessed due to the harshness of the roads but places like Fruit Bat/Elliot/Twin waterfalls, The Telegraph Road, the Peninsula Development Road and the Bamaga Road (also known in sections as the Southern and Northern Bypass road) are all well taken care of and allowable for you to travel on. The Roads that these vehicle are allowed on will lead you from Cairns to the very tip of Cape York - Australia where you can fish, catch ferries to the islands of the Torres Straits and stand at the sign saying you are at the very top of Australia. Please consult a good map provider for road names and details like the “Hema Map" company.
