Australia is packed with cities, scenic coast roads, burnt orange deserts and wild outback which makes it ideal for exploring by road, with your own car or campervan. That said - it can be easy to underestimate the driving distances if you forget it’s a country that’s roughly the size of Europe!

Why travel by campervan in Australia?

Travelling by campervan in Australia gives you flexible freedom. You’ll find a wide selection of vehicles to suit every requirement, from a budget campervan with little more than a mattress and ‘esky’ in the back, to a luxury campervan equipped with an electric bed system, a range of gadgets and extras like a BBQ and flat screen TV.

With a campervan, you can stray from the well-trodden routes; it’s easy to change plans and spend extra nights in a place you love, or drive on through to your next destination. There's no check-out deadline, no set breakfast – it’s just you, your travel companions and the road ahead.

What should you think about?

Here are a few things so think about before hiring your campervan in Australia:

  • Are you traveling on a shoestring and just need a basic model?
  • Do you need an on-board toilet/shower?
  • Do you want a new model, or would an older/higher mileage vehicle suit?
  • How much comfort/luxury do you need? (We have luxury models and you can break your journey with hotels/lodges too)
  • Would you prefer to pay more but reduce the insurance excess to zero?
  • Are you travelling with children?
  • Would you prefer a larger berth van with more space inside?
  • What bed configuration do you need in terms of doubles/singles/bunks?
