Rockhampton Car Hire (QLD)


43 Fitzroy Street
QLD 4700

07 4927 8755

Conveniently located in North Queensland

Thrifty Rockhampton caters to all walks of life, including the bustling family needing a safe and reliable passenger car for their laidback holiday to the local business owner requiring a sturdy commercial vehicle for their next big contract.

To make things easy for our customers, we've planted our shop in the middle of Rockhampton, just off the main street of Fitzroy Street and less than 5 minutes drive to the nearby Rockhampton station.

Did you know Rockhampton is one of the sunniest cities downunder and typically enjoys 300 days of sunshine annually? With so many sunrays and a lack of sea breeze thanks to being located 40km inland, it's no surprise the Queensland city is known for its blistering heat. So keep cool and drive to the beach.

Utes and trucks?

As the commercial centre of central Queensland, we've ensured our Thrifty Rockhampton fleet is up to scratch, with a great range of utes, trucks and vans to fulfill the requirements of any job. Best yet, we'll build a vehicle to spec, especially in long term lease agreements. We also offer fully maintained operating leases. Need to know more? Speak to one of our friendly Thrifty staff members on 07 4927 8755 today!

Moving People?

Whether you're jet-setting to Rockhampton for a corporate vacay or heading to the Tropic of Capricorn to see the impressive sites, Thrifty has the cruiser for you, including compact hatchbacks, sleek sedans, roomy SUVs and powerful 4WDs.

If you're travelling with a larger group, such as a sports team, we also offer a 25 seater bus with a trailer option to pack more gear.

Opening hours for early rises

There's plenty to see in this tropical Queensland destination. So why wait? Hit the road early, by visiting Thrifty Rockhampton from 8.00am to 5.00pm everyday of the week. 

Things to see and do in Rockhampton

Known as the Beef Capital of Australia, Rockhampton has definitely earned its reputation, home to the largest throughput of export beef cattle in Queensland. There's even six bull statues placed throughout the city to represent the main beef breeds!

Rockhampton is also a great place to see some historical architecture, as the city dates back to 1853. History-buffs can learn more about the rich past of the city by visiting the Rockhampton Heritage Village, the Dreamtime Cultural Centre and the 130 year old Rockhampton Botanic Gardens.

While the town has plenty to offer, it's also the perfect place to start your exploration of Queensland's incredible natural attractions, including the Capricorn Caverns (limestone caves), the Southern Great Barrier Reef and Mt Archer National Park, just 9km north-east from Rockhampton's CBD.
