Before you set off and do a self-drive holiday in the capital of Queensland, learn about the rules of the road and safety.

  • Always bring your driver's license
  • Drive on the left side of the road
  • Put on your seatbelt
  • Make sure the children have a baby or booster seat
  • Don't drive at night
  • Don't drink and drive

Know the speed limit


The speed limit in the inner city streets has now been lowered to 40 kph, and increases to 100kph in open motorways. Always keep an eye out for signs and remember that speed limits are in kilometres, not miles!

Be aware of toll roads


There are only a few toll roads in Brisbane, so it would be best to get an electronic pass or an E-Tag to avoid fines. An electronic pass is highly recommended for tourists, while an E-Tag is a great option if you are planning a longer trip. Get an electronic pass or E-Tag online

Rest between long rides


Fatigue can set in fairly quick when you're driving long distances in a large vehicle. Try to rest at least 15 minutes every 2 hours. You can also spend the night at a campground. Look for great Caravan Parks in Brisbane.
