Considered the gateway to the Central Highlands, this small city lies along the banks of the Nogoa River, 170 km west of Rockhampton and 190 km to the coast. It was established in 1879 as the railroad expanded into the west. The Budget Rent a Car is located in town on Springsure Road near Gregory Highway South.

The Emerald Botanic Gardens are along Capricorn Highway, not far in the Budget car hire, you can take a nice stroll and explore this tropical garden with 12 different themed plant areas, all native to this area. In Morton Park you will find the largest Van Gogh Sunflower painting in the world, as Emerald is a major producer of sunflowers. Adjacent to this you will find the Central Highlands Visitor Centre.

A short drive in the Budget rental car will bring you to Fairburn Dam, holding back the Nogoa River creating Lake Maraboon, Queensland’s second largest lake.

When it’s full the Lake holds more water than Sydney Harbour.

Many of our locations are unable to obtain insurance for under 21 year old drivers who are therefore required, prior to the start of the rental, to present an original Insurance Certificate of Currency - not a cover note - that indemnifies the replacement value of Budget's vehicle and third party property damage up to $20 million for any one occurrence. The certificate must be issued by a reputable insurer (as opposed to a broker) and is accepted at the discretion of the prospective location with which arrangements should be made directly.
