How to travel around Australia in a campervan?
A road trip is the best way to see Australia and nothing is more fun than doing it in camper van. If you want to travel in a camper van in Australia, then this blog is for you.
Buy one or Rent one?
The answer depends on you. Do you want to do one trip in your campervan, or are you looking to take off regularly and explore the unknown? Once you get a taste for a campervan holiday you might want to do it again and again, but renting a campervan is a great way to try before you buy.
Choosing the right vehicles and understanding the rental system
We have a variety of campervan hires, all with different facilities and amenities.
Gold Coast Motorhome Hire will be able to advise you on the best motorhome hire for your needs. Just call our friendly staff and we will talk you through all your options.
Planning the route
Where to start!! Planning the route is so exciting, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start.
- Firstly, make a rough route plan.
- Secondly, find out the camp grounds on that route.
- Thirdly, plan your supply according to the route and stops along the way.
Planning the route will help you be prepared with enough petrol, food and water. Why not talk to our motorhome rental team, maybe we can point you in the right direction, literally.
Follow the Rules of the road
Whilst each state has different road rules, we all drive on the left-hand side of the road, obey the speed signs and ensure that we all wear seat belts, and driving whilst drunk or using your phone is not permitted. If you’re from outside Australia get familiar with the road rules before you hire your campervan.
The final step is very easy, enjoy!
At the end of the day, it is the memories that will always stay with you, so never stop exploring.
