There will be not much in the way of cheap hire cars up there and being a 22 yo wont help things.
Any hire car above the 26th paralell(tropic of capricorn) also attracts a higher insurance premium and so does a drivers lic not issued in oz.
Greyhound do run a service from Darwin to Cairns.
I would check on your starting point,their site says you can start in Darwin,Sydney,Cairns.

A lot of young travellers advertise on various sites to share rides/costs with other travellers who own cars,most of them are in your age group.

Hello, I would also suggest taking the train if you don't care about a couple of bucks. If you are on a tight budget then I would decide to take the bus because it should be a bit cheaper.

Hello!
you could also take they greayhound bus and book the route "cairns to melbourne". you can get the ticket for 1 or 3 months (or more) and hop on / hop off as often as you want to. it runs every day up to 4 times in bigger places. you can purchase it short before the trip. once you have it you get a code to make online booking from which place to which directions you wanna go. we always did it a day before it never had any problems.
hope that helps
btw 3 months cairns-sydney was about 320$

remember that you can sometimes relocate vans or caravans for the company and pretty much just pay petrol. You need to be flexible with dates and destination though. friends of mine have done this for the rental companies and loved it! good luck and enoy.

If you are 3 friends then take a car on rent. It would be very confort to all and you can get car on rental at roadrunnerrentals now at low cost.
