Gallivanting Oz is a unique and personalised service where we take your needs and consideration into account to help you book the perfect motorhome or campervan for your memorable holiday. As an independent tour company, we offer a range of suitable campervans that are designed to meet your individual needs. What could be better than that?

How We Make Campervan Hire In Melbourne A Breeze

Hiring a campervan is always a lot of fun, but when you choose Gallivanting Oz, you take the whole experience up a notch. We don’t run our own fleet of campervans and motorhomes: that’s not what we’re about. Instead, we match you up to the most suitable campervan or motorhome for your needs, sort out pricing, and then arrange for it be available for you to pick up and drop off at a specified location. We even offer escorted tour options too, if you prefer camaraderie on road and everything to be organised for you.

The whole point of everything we do is to break away from the “pre-packaged” and “no options” services that currently dominate the campervan hire market in Melbourne and give you a genuinely personal service. Your vacation should be your baby, and so that’s why we’ve dedicated ourselves to make it happen.

As you might have guessed, Gallivanting Oz is unique in the industry. We don’t try to shoehorn you into taking one particular service over another. Instead, we help you have the perfect campervan-based excursion.  Whether you prefer to organise your adventures once on the road,  or assisting with information and suggestions for those who like to pre-plan, or you can join us on a highly organised but very relaxed escorted tour on a variety of popular but remote routes around Australia.  You can easily add ‘extra’ routes or time on the road when joining us on an escorted tour, such as the Great Ocean Road near Melbourne.

This isn’t a service for backpackers looking for cheap rentals with no frills, but rather anyone who wants to explore the glorious Australian wilderness in the best way possible. That may be by having a budget friendly option, or it may be making sure the features you are after are in the booked motorhome.  We like to make sure you understand all the costs and how the insurance works for the specific motorhome you have chosen, so there are no surprised either at pick up or once you’re on the road.  Once you’ve picked up your campervan in Melbourne, you can travel to loads of different places around Australia. The road network connects Melbourne to all the major East Coast cities, such as Gold Coast, Sydney, and Brisbane, as well as the West Coast and interior. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can travel deep into the outback, visiting Alice Springs and experiencing some of the most desolate and wild countries in all of the Western world. Or, if you want to go West, you can travel to Perth and see the glorious vistas of the West Coast – the choice is up to you.  From Melbourne we have a range of campervan or motorhome options to hire.

Gallivanting Oz is here to make your next road trip special. We don’t believe in off-the-shelf rentals that provide everyone with the same service. That’s why we match you up with a range of campervans and motorhomes to suit your particular needs, depending on things like your interests and party size, budget, as well as how far and where you’re planning on going.

Australia is a vast country and is ideal for exploring in a vehicle where you can sleep on your journey. If you venture into the desert interior, it can be remote, underscoring just how important it is to choose a reliable vehicle.  At various locations around Australia we have a range of 4WD campers for hire if you are someone who prefers to get off the beaten track.

Go Anywhere You Like From Melbourne

Where you go with your campervan is entirely up to you, but here at Gallivanting Oz, we’re keen on several routes that run out of Melbourne.

Melbourne To Sydney

One of the most popular routes runs between Melbourne and Sydney, Australia’s two largest metropolises. As you journey along the coastal road from, Melbourne, you’ll first arrive at Phillip Island, famous for its penguin colonies. Next, you’ll see some of the stunning headlands that stick out into the South Pacific. All along the coast, you’ll find coastal towns based on local fisheries. The entire region is famous for the quality of its seafood. Much of the fish you’ll east here is freshly caught on the same day.

If you carry on up the coast a little more, you’ll come across Jervis Bay, a favourite place for people looking for stunning white-sand beaches. As you venture north, you’ll also go past some of Australia’s National Parks, areas protected by law to preserve their natural beauty. There are lots of places en route to park up and camp for the night, so you’ll always have options.

Adelaide To Darwin

For those of you who are feeling adventurous, then Gallivanting Oz recommends the incredible scenic Adelaide to Darwin route. After travelling from Melbourne to Adelaide, you’ll start venturing north, deep into the heart of the country. Here, on the route from Adelaide to Darwin,  you’re likely to see practically all of Australia’s native wildlife, including kangaroos, wallabies, emus, crocodiles and a whole host of birds, as well as some creepy crawlies if you look closely!

Along the way, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about the Aboriginal culture native to the area as well as visit some of the most famous geological sites in Australia, such as the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The route, like the Melbourne to Sydney road, is peppered with national parks centred around some of the country’s most stunning natural wildernesses. The interior of Australia has an epic loneliness about it. If you’re the type of person who likes to be thousands of miles from civilisation, then this is the place to be. You need a quality campervan that can withstand the high temperatures and long journeys, and we will be happy to provide. We recommend you make the journey during the dry season between May and September.

Brisbane To Cairns

The Brisbane to Cairns is a bonafide Queensland adventure – one of the most popular coastal drives. Again there’s plenty of opportunities to see the local wildlife, including cassowaries and dingos. Queensland is also home to a large population of crocs in the northern parts of the state. The Queensland countryside is a mixture of long beaches, tropical rainforest, and a stunning marine ecology, including the great barrier reef. With a campervan from Gallivanting Oz, you can explore all that Queensland has to offer and then circle back to Brisbane for all of the sights and sounds of that great city.  If you have at least a month up your sleeve, we strongly recommend the Queensland loop for so much diversity with the red colours of the outback, stunning coastal scenery and time to explore the Tropical North and the world heritage listed Daintree Rainforest.

Of course, these are just a taste of some of the routes that you could take. Our website contains information about all the popular journeys that campervans make, including all of the highlights along the way. Choosing a route to take isn’t easy, but rest assured no matter where you decide to travel, Australia will not disappoint.  We strongly suggest you chose one section to explore this time, do it well, and then come back and explore another area.  Sometimes, the travelling distances in Australia can be underestimated which can lead to a rushed holiday experience, which is not always that much fun.

Get Your Campervan Journey Started

It can sometimes be confusing knowing which campervan to hire and for how long. But with Gallivanting Oz, you can take all of the difficulty out of the decision-making process. It’s our job to help guide you through the process of choosing the right campervan for your needs. We’ll help you think about the size of vehicle that you need, or whether you need a fully-fledged motorhome for the journey you plan to make. We’ll also talk you through all of the administrative stuff, like the licenses that you might need during your trip.  You can ask us questions regarding national park entry fees or anything else you need assistance with – we are happy to help where we can.

Remember, it’s our job to make your life as comfortable as possible. With us, you don’t need to be a campervan expert to plan and execute the ultimate road trip. With our support, it’s easy. We’ll take care of all aspects of the organisation for you, including the finding the best budget friendly campervan or motorhome and where you should travel in Australia. It’s your holiday, and so you should have full scope to do what you like.
