Well I can only speak for Australia, yes you can sleep in the car and is fairly safe to do so. Their are plenty of rest stops along the way between Sydney and Melbourne.

As for car hire, this company has reasonable prices

you're probably better off finding a smaller company that has better rates but you can try the bigger companies like avis or hertz. when i was in brisbane we rented from abel rent a car and i think they have branches all along the east coast. may be worth checking out because i think their rates were very reasonable. i'm fairly sure they have a website if you just google it.

I have been looking into hiring a car when I go down south later this month and I found Avis to be the cheapest out of the ones I looked at. Thrifty seemed to be really expensive, so I would steer clear of that company.
