Going on a motorhome holiday in Australia?

March 9, 2017

There are so many reasons why we are so passionate about motorhome holidays in Australia.

Going on a motorhome holiday in Australia is a totally different experience to staying in motels or packaged holiday in a hotel.  Without a doubt, our clients always let us know how much they enjoyed the in-between bits, as much as or sometimes more, than the amazing natural and man made attractions Australia offers.

Our country is large, with major cities being coastal and a vast interior desert wilderness known as the Outback, which occupies most of central Australia.

There is so much to see and do in this beautiful country and often visitors are amazed at the diversity we have.  No, it’s not all red and flat – there are amazing gorges, canyons, rainforests, beaches and escarpments as just a taste of what you can discover on a motorhome holiday in Australia. 

We are confident when we say that a motorhome holiday in Australia will most definitely guarantee you the best chance of seeing a lot more than a packaged holiday in a hotel.

You can choose to start at one location and hire a motorhome for your holiday, and return it to a different location.  For example, pick up your motorhome in Perth, drive up through Western Australia into the NT, and drop off in Darwin. Or you can do a round trip and pick up and drop off at the same depot.

An example of that might be to pick up and drop off in Brisbane and do the incredibly diverse state of Queensland.  The choice is yours, however if you’re looking for some inspiration, click here.

Given that Australia is 31.5 times the size of the UK, 29 times bigger than New Zealand and is approximately the same size as continental USA, we reckon there’s a lot to see and the only way you are really going to see the ‘real’ Australia, is to get out there and see it for yourself by having a motorhome holiday.
