Hire cars to explore New Ireland's tropical wonders

Toyota 10 passenger landcruiser provides individual and small groups with air conditioned comfort and plenty of muscle and traction to visit out of the way places throughout fascinating New Ireland

Hire cars at a flat rate

We hire to all comers, but naturally we give Kavieng Niu Lodge guests priority in the use of our taxis, hire cars, and tours.

Our associated company, Star Hire & Rental, provides the hire cars you need for more flexible holiday exploring and fun, and for business -- you need a car to get around.

Toyota Hilux 5th Element dual cab 4WD provide great go-anywhere transport for up to five people.

Star offers two types of vehicle for rent -- current model Toyota HiLux Fifth Element Double Cab 4WD and Toyota Landcruiser 10 passenger 4WD. Four wheel drive provides possibilities for getting off the main roads, and air conditioning ensures driver and passenger comfort.

Unsure of about venturing off the main highway on your own? Star can provide an experienced driver/guide too.

All vehicles are hired at a flat day rate from K700 (AU$320).
