About 4WD Hire Cairns

If you the type of traveller who would want to explore the outback regions, then 4WD Hire Cairns is a great option to satisfy your off-the-road demands. This rental business focuses on rugged vehicles that will take you to rugged places in Cairns, Cape York, and Cooktown. These areas open up a road trip packed with outdoor adventure and spectacular wildlife and nature interaction. The company's main branch is located in Cairns City but pickup and dropoff of units can be done at the airport so that renters can start their trip as soon as possible.


The company features a well-rounded rental fleet―4WD cars, 4WD campervans, sportscars, and minibus. There are 7 options for the 4WD campervan range, all of which are Toyota models, either Hilux or Landcruiser. These units are great for couples or families up to 5, who want to explore the Far North without ever doubting if their unit can make it to the outback landscapes.

The perfect off-the-road partner for couples, these 4WD campervans let you tackle tough terrains with ease and comfort. They've got two options to choose from―a 4 berth X-Terrain and a 2 berth Toyota Landcruiser. There are certain differences between these 0-3 years old 4WD campers. The X-Terrain, in particular, provides two rooftop tents and a slideout kitchen. The Toyota Landcruiser, on the other hand, comes with a convertible living space that becomes a nice sleeping area at night. The pop-up roof could be another sleeping option or extra storage space.

Seating and sleeping 5, the Toyota Landcruiser is armed with a unique rooftop tent design that caters the entire family comfortably. The rooftop tent allows up to persons, while the extension tent below with self-inflating beds accommodates up to 3. The unit takes pride in some fancy features like the modern fridge and freezer technology, ratchet straps, and shaded awning. Though the unit is commended for families, this is also great for couples or even solo travellers wanting extreme space.

These 0-3 years old Toyota Landcruiser models would be the next favorite camper for a family of 4. If you're travelling with a kid, then this one is a perfect match because of the baby seat, not to mention the solar shower! The interior layout is very spacious without leaving all the comforts behind, including a fully-equipped slide-out kitchen with sink, cutlery, gas stove, and fridge. At the rear is a nice storage room for your stuff while sleeping places are from the pop-up roof and ground tent.

This 0-3 years old Toyota Hilux is a 4-door, 5-seater automatic 4WD that accommodates up to 5 people. It has a slide-out kitchen that is loaded with a portable stove, fridge, and food storage boxes. Sleeping options come from the rooftop tent and another tent on the ground. Tents are provided with self-inflating camping mats and linen. The interior of the campervan is more of a storage area for large equipment and extra luggage. For extra convenience, a step-up extension can be attached to the wheel so that you can access the navigable rear side windows and roof rack.
