The beautiful city of Perth is the perfect place to start a campervan holiday. Down on the south-west coast of the country, you can head north or east to start exploring.

However, before you can go anywhere, you need to have the perfect campervan. Your priorities are reliability, comfort and space, and we can help you to discover a huge range of options so that you can find the right campervan to hire in Perth.

Your Vehicle Options
You can choose from a wide range of options, and we’ll help you to choose the right one. Firstly, you need to know what to consider to select the best campervan for your trip. Some of the things to think about include the size of the vehicle, the time of year you will be travelling, your budget, where you want to go, whether there is a toilet or shower and, of course, how easy it is for you to drive it.
For the camper options to get you off the beaten path, which still offer comfort and extra amenities, you can consider a 4WD camper. The 4WD options usually have a pop-up tent or tents, which fold down from the roof or can be free-standing. Some of the 4WD options have a fridge, portable cold water, a roof rack and other convenient additions. If you want something that’s easier to drive, can handle going off-road and still provides plenty of space and comfort, a 4WD vehicle is a great option.
Campervans and motorhomes come in a variety of sizes, with options up to 6-berth available. They can really provide you with a home away from home, with amenities including kitchens, showers and toilets, awnings, TVs and comfortable beds. If you want to travel in style and comfort, you can find the perfect choice for your trip. Whether you’re a couple travelling alone, a family or even a group of friends going on an adventure together, there are so many options available for you.
Where to Go from Perth?
Of course, one of the most important things to decide is where you’re going to go. The best thing about getting in a campervan is that you can set off on an adventure and go where you like. You get to enjoy yourself not just when you stop for the night but along the way too, when you’re on the road. If you start your journey from Perth, you have a great choice of places to go to. You could stick close to the Perth area if that’s what you want to do. However, there is a great choice of both short and long trips for you to take too.
If you want to explore the south-west corner of Australia, the Perth South Western Circuit route is ideal for you. It takes you along the coast, as well as some beautiful lakes on your way to and from Kalgoorlie. A circuit route is perfect if you don’t want to see anything twice. You can complete the circuit and see something new every day. It’s also up to you which way around you decide to drive the circuit. You could head south from Perth or you could go east and south when you get to Kalgoorlie.
This circuit is 2,150km and should take you around 14 days to complete. Along the way, you get the pleasure of stunning white beaches, national parks, wineries and the beautiful outback too. It’s also a good choice for wildlife, and you could even spot humpback whales from July to October. This is a circuit you could do at any time of year, although it might be cold in winter.
Another option if you want to set off from Perth is to drive to Darwin. Of course, you could also drive just part of the way. Other excellent places to choose along the Perth to Darwin route include Exmouth and Broome. The full Perth to Darwin route is a long one, totalling 4,500km. You’ll want to take a minimum of 25 days to do it, so it’s a good pick if you’re thinking about taking a month or so away. A good six weeks or more gives you time to really set your own pace. You’ll get to see what the coast of Western Australia has to offer, before landing in the Northern Territory.
Along the way, you can marvel at the crystal clear waters and stop at Ningaloo Marine Park to see the fringing coral reef. In the Kimberley Region, there’s a fantastic range of scenery and you’ll get plenty of opportunities to see wildlife too, from crocodiles to kangaroos. The best time for this route is May to September, which is the dry season in the north.
For anyone who’s thinking about travelling east from Perth, the Perth to Adelaide route is another amazing option. Starting in Perth, you can choose to first travel along the southwest corner of the WA coast. Or you can make your way east to Kalgoorlie if you’re interested in Australia’s mining history, before continuing south and then east to enter South Australia. This iconic Australian drive will take you across the Nullarbor plain and over Australia’s longest and straightest road. Anyone wanting to spot some whales is likely to see Southern Right Whales from June to September, and there are chances to spot other wildlife along the way too.
This route is at least 2,750km, requiring a minimum of 14 days. You can do it anytime, but summer can be hot, so winter and spring are often best. It’s your choice which route you take, what you want to see along the way and how long you want to take too.
Gallivanting Oz will help you with your campervan hire in Perth to get you off on your adventures equipped with a comfortable vehicle and everything that you need.
