We hired a couple of cars up there in July. Budget was heaps cheaper than Avis or Hertz. We had a x-trail for about $400 for a week I think. It was OK though it didn't handle the dirt of Black Mtn Rd (Julatten to Kuranda where there are cassowaries) well after the wet so we turned back after a short distance. Also don't hire from the airport; it's at least $50 more - just get the airport bus ($10 from memory) to drop you at the city office of the hirer.
