Australian road trip? Easy.

Nothing quite says adventure like a campervan holiday in Australia. The long open roads, the dusty red landscapes, the nights under the stars – not only is it the best way to explore the country, it’s one of the few remaining ways of tapping into the true sense of adventure associated with travelling.

What’s more, Australia is a country that feels as though it has been specifically designed with campervan holidays in mind. Unlike a bus or plane, a campervan gives you the freedom to stop off and hop out anytime – whether you want to sip a beer while watching the sun go down, take a refreshing dip in the glistening blue water, or snap an unmissable photo to send to friends and family back home. A campervan offers you the flexibility to explore Down Under in your own way and at your own pace, without feeling as though you are being torn away from the beautiful surroundings. 

Campervanning in Australia also means that you don’t have to worry about booking accommodation – something that comes particularly useful in high season, when finding a room can be tricky. On a campervan holiday, everything is right at your fingertips, easy to transport, and always available when you want it. 

There are some fantastic tried-and-tested routes to take, too, where the journeys are just as scenic as the destinations. The Great Pacific Drive provides a glimpse of both the magnificent beaches and unbelievable rainforests of New South Wales, while the Great Ocean Road is widely regarded as one of the world’s most impressive drives, winding through vast national parks and along rugged coastlines.

Outback adventures

Formed of striking desert plain landscapes, rugged mountain ranges, sacred sites and wild gorges, Australia’s Red Centre is a fascinating part of the country, and an important cultural region. Taking its name from the reddish glow caused by the oxidised iron in the soil, the Red Centre is the perfect place to take your campervan.

You’ll have the chance to explore the dramatic desert landscape, swim in watering holes, ride quad bikes and watch Uluru – or Ayers Rock – change colour at sunrise. You will also have the opportunity to discover the Aboriginal way of life up close and hear stories from the oldest living culture in the world. A road trip through the Red Centre is one of the best ways of experiencing the real Australia.

The Great Ocean Road

Spanning 243 kilometres, the Great Ocean Road is widely considered one of the world’s most scenic coastal drives, and therefore a must-see on a campervan holiday to Australia. Situated in the south west of the country, the spectacular route hugs the coastline for its entirety, offering stunning views of craggy cliffs, unspoiled beaches and the deep blue Southern Ocean.

What’s more, there are a whole host of different spots to stop over along the way, where you can embark on hikes, hit the surf or simply drink in the vistas from a limestone cliff top. It is also a great opportunity to immerse yourself in nature. Great Otway National Park, for instance, is home to a range of cascading waterfalls, twinkling gorges and ancient trees. There are a handful of free campsites en route, allowing you to take the journey at your own pace.

Beach life

Australia boasts nearly 27,000 kilometres of coastline, so life here is intrinsically linked to the beach – from the sun-kissed surfers, to the ebb and flow of handsome boats in the harbour. Yet, while most will have heard of Whitehaven Beach in Whitsundays and Bondi Beach in Sydney, travelling by campervan means you’ll be able to access some of the more hidden stretches of coastline where regular tours don’t go.

Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay, for example, has been recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as having the whitest sand in the world, while Squeaky Beach in Wilson’s Promontory takes its name from its noisy sand – it’s so pure that it makes a squeaking noise as you tread on it. With the freedom to travel where you want, heading off the beaten track to explore lesser known beaches is a must.

Best time to visit Australia

Owing to the vastness of the country, there’s always good weather to be found in Australia. The benefit of having a campervan means that you can head to wherever the sun is shining, be it the tropical zone in the north – perfect between April and September – or the temperate zone in the south, which is best between October and November, and late-February to March.

Australia is a country that is all about the outdoor lifestyle, yet with temperatures soaring in the summer between November and January, it’s a good idea to time your visit for around April orMay, when the weather is slightly cooler and there are fewer visitors. The comfort of sleeping in a campervan very much depends on the climate outside, so choose your destination and travel time with that in mind.
