While on the road if you are planning to hire a campervan, local information centres are a wealth of information. You’ll find these are very well marked from the main roads, and many towns have one. You can spot them with their yellow ‘i’ and a blue background.
These are staffed by locals, who know the area and can give you a few inside tips to make sure you enjoy your visit to the region when you hire a campervan. You’ll be able to pick up information on local camping grounds, and often they’ll let you know if there is any free camping in the area, or the location of the nearest dump station (where you empty your toilet waste).
In addition to providing local information, there are some excellent free brochures you can pick up that cover a popular tourist drive, even if you are crossing different regions or even states when you hire a campervan. For example there is a ‘coastal explorer’ magazine which covers the popular tourist drive from Brisbane to Sydney, and also Sydney to Melbourne. This will ensure you don’t miss any must see highlights and can find a few other attractions that suit your personal interest.
Many regional tourism bodies have their own websites set up, in addition to the main state tourism site if you want to do some planning before you leave home. A good place to start after you have spoken to us and gone through the process to hire a campervan, is the Tourism Australia website http://www.australia.com/ which then goes into detail on the area you wish to explore.
