From Melbourne we have a range of campervan or motorhome options to hire.
Heading east – Melbourne To Sydney and beyond
One of the most popular routes run 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.
Heading west – Melbourne to Adelaide along the Great Ocean Road
If you perhaps like the idea of cruising along one of Australia’s iconic routes, then a road trip with your campervan hire from Melbourne to Adelaide is your thing. If so, head west and make your way towards the Great Ocean Road. Littered with ancient limestone coastline and amazing national parks, this coastal drive is spectacular!
You might find yourself surfing at Bells Beach or walking among the 12 apostles and sampling wine in McLaren Vale. This stretch is one experience to remember!
75km south-west of Melbourne you’ll find Geelong. Stop for brunch, learn how to throw a boomerang, meet resident emu’s and kangaroos at the Narana Aboriginal Cultural Centre and learn about the local culture. If you head through Tourquay, this is where the Great Ocean Road begins!
Cruise through Lorne and head to Port Fairy visiting the 12 Apostles along the way, a series of limestone towers jutting out of the Southern Ocean. Carrying on through Coonawarra and on to Victor Harbour, you are more than ¾ of the way to Adelaide. Be sure to visit Naracoorte Caves National Park!.
You’ll eventually end up in the fifth most populated city Adelaide, famous for its vibrancy!
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.
