Leaving Sydney with yoru campervan hire, there are a variety of routes you can head in. There are plenty of reasons to head north up to Brisbane and then maybe on to Cairns, otherwise heading down to Melbourne and around to Adelaide can make for a great trip too. Here’s more about each of those options.
Sydney to Brisbane
If you choose to head up to Brisbane from Sydney, there are numerous routes that you might choose to take. However, the most commonly travelled are the New England Highway or the Pacific Highway. The New England Highway is the inland route that involves travelling past Armidale and Stanthorpe until you eventually reach Brisbane. The other route is the Pacific Highway and this is preferred by many because it’s the Coastal route. The sights over the ocean are beautiful and you can stop at places like Port Macquarie, Byron Bay and Gold Coast along the way if you like.
However, it’s also possible to travel in the space in between those two highways and find your own way up to Brisbane as well if you like. If you choose to do that, you’ll be able to come up with your own route and discover all kinds of small places along the way. For many people, that’s the way to travel that’s most exciting and interesting. You can easily spend a week travelling up to Brisbane or longer if you have the time.
Before you make your way further north, you can visit the Blue Mountains National Park on your way out of Sydney. And there are lots of other wonderful places you need to see along the way. These include Nelson Bay if you’re taking the coastal route and Tomaree National Park isn’t far from there either. Both are unmissable stops between Sydney and Brisbane.
There are so many National Parks that can be visited and explored along the way – both on the inland route and the coastal route. You’ll see all sorts of majestic wildlife and by the time you reach Brisbane, you’ll already have had a great time. After that, you can travel on up to from Brisbane to Cairns via one of a couple of routes if you want to.

Sydney to Melbourne Campervan Hire
If you don’t want to head up to Brisbane, the other obvious route to take is travel from Sydney to Melbourne. From Sydney, you just need to head south along the coast. It’s a great chance to explore this stretch of coastline and see some amazing things along the way. In total, it’s a 1200 km trip but it’s worth when you find out just how much there is to see and do in this beautiful corner of Australia; you won’t regret it.
If you take a detour as you leave Sydney, you can head past Nowra and visit Kangaroo Valley. It provides a great mountain drive and the views that you get over the coast and the land are unmissable; it’s also a fantastic camping spot. The perfect place to stop after leaving Sydney in your campervan hire. As you head further south, you’ll get the chance to visit Jervis Bay Village in the Booderee National Park. The beaches and the walking opportunities here are great, and the same can be said of Batemans Bay. As you go through Eden, you’ll get a chance to explore the sapphire coast before eventually reaching Cape Conran, where there’s a National Park with places to camp.
Anyone who’s a fan of boating will want to stop off at Lakes Entrance as they move along the coast towards Melbourne from Sydney as well. It’s scenic, peaceful and ideal for taking a boat out on the water. Even if you’re not into boating, you should stop off and enjoy the atmosphere and sights here. You can then take a scenic drive along South Gippsland Highway or even Princes Highway.
Before you reach Melbourne, you’ll want to stop at Phillip Island, take in the beauty of the area and see the penguins and wildlife there. As you get closest to Melbourne, you’ll be able to pass through the Yarra Valley wine region, sampling the produce and enjoying the stunning scenery found here. And then, of course, is Melbourne itself, a metropolitan hub with plenty to do and see during your stay there.
