If your trip to Port Augusta is all locked in but your itinerary is a little on the empty side, let us give you a helping hand.
Near the city center, Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden is one attraction you might like to consider adding to your to-do list. If you still have space on your schedule, Homestead Park Pioneer Museum and Port Augusta Hospital and Regional Health Service will keep you entertained, too.
If you're looking for day-trip inspiration, we've got a couple of suggestions. Sitting 50 miles away, Port Pirie is worth hopping in the car for. Port Pirie National Trust Museum, Northern Festival Centre and Port Pirie Memorial Oval alone make the drive out worth it. The locals will also probably point you in the direction of Hawker, 59 miles away. If you can only find time for one thing here, let it be Hawker Golf Course. (But we'd also highly recommend Wilpena Panorama and Hawker Visitor Centre.)
Here's a rundown of our top suggestions to score the biggest discounts on a rental car:
Sure, you could vacation in Port Augusta without a rental car. But with so much to see and do here, having one would make life easier. If you're eager to head out of town and into nature, choose a set of wheels with some power. A full-size or mid-size SUV will get you to the area's desert landscapes in comfort. Planning to spend the majority of your vacation close to the bright lights of the city? A compact or mini car will be your best bet. Maneuvering around busy streets and squeezing into tight parking spaces will be a walk in the park with one of these.
There's more than enough choice when it comes to rental cars in Port Augusta. From SUVs with space to spare to economy rides that are a snap to park, you'll find it all here. Selecting your perfect match depends on how much you want to spend and what activities you plan on doing. Some road trips are just begging you to splurge on your dream ride, whereas others require no more than a bargain, no-frills type model. What type of car will it be this time?
