Day 1: Depart UK
Depart the UK from your chosen airport.
Included: International flight
Day 2: Arrive Sydney
To give you time to catch up on your sleep after such a long flight, we’ve included one night at a hotel near Sydney airport, before you collect your campervan the next day.
If you’re keen to stay in Sydney before hitting the road, we can add more nights here.
Included: Airport hotel
Days 3-10: Campervan self-drive from Sydney to Brisbane
We work with a range of campervan companies with a wide choice of vehicles from 2 to 6 berth so that we can put together a quotation based on the size of your party. Either way, we highly recommend you upgrade to an insurance package that reduces your liability and bond for a stress-free start to your holiday!
Once you’ve collected your vehicle, the open road beckons, but we can advise on a suggested itinerary if you’d like. Hug the coastline or head inland, the choice is yours!
Included: Campervan hire
