Perth Airport is Perth’s main airport, and is located 12 km from the CBD, and the event venue. It is accessible by taxi, Uber, bus or hire car.
You require an international licence or licence from your own country to hire a car. Cars are right hand drive and the rule of the road is to keep to the left. We recommend Budget, a car hire company that offers great service and competitive rates. Others to choose from include Europcar, Bayswater Car Rental, Avis and Hertz.
