Self-drive holidays around Australia are great no matter which vehicle you choose, but there is nothing that compares to a motorhome or campervan holiday. Unlike travelling in a car, you have onboard facilities that won’t be so restrictive in what you can do.

If you’ve never hired a motorhome before, you might wonder what the benefits are, and why you should explore Australia this way. We’ve come up with the top 10 reasons why you should hire a motorhome for your road trip around Australia.

You can stop whenever you want

Imagine this. You’re driving around and discover a place that you want to stop, but you’ve got a reservation with a hotel in a couple of hours. That means you can’t stop to explore and take in the sights. When you travel around Australia in a motorhome, you can stop whenever you want, because the vehicle itself is your accommodation!

If you want to spend a few hours or a few days in a remote coastal town without worry about the time, then you can. You can enjoy lunch or dinner on the side of the road, or have a picnic in a secluded area. Traveling in a motorhome gives you so many options that you don’t have if you were to travel other ways. It also gives you the chance to really soak up Australia’s greatest holiday destinations.

You only have to unpack once

One of the main reasons people choose to cruise on ships is because they get to visit multiple destinations, and yet they have the convenience to only unpack once. It is exactly the same with a motorhome hire! You only have to unpack once.

Motorhomes are equipped with modern kitchen facilities, including cutlery, plus beds, linen and much more. You have the freedom to travel according to your schedule, and the only things you have to worry about are where you’re going to stop next and how much time you want to spend in each destination.

A motorhome gives you more flexibility

Some travellers like to run to a schedule, but others prefer to have the freedom to see what happens. When you travel in a motorhome you can plan your itinerary as you do it. You don’t have to pre-plan anything because ultimately your vehicle is your accommodation.

That means if you discover a coastal town you’d like to spend more time in, you can. If you want to spend time learning about Indigenous history, you can. You can make spur of the moment decisions and really have a true Australian road trip adventure.

There’s a motorhome for everyone

Whether you’re travelling with friends, a partner or your family there’s a motorhome to suit everyone’s tastes and budgets. If you know that you’re going to be travelling to the outback then you’re going to need a motorhome with beds, a kitchenette and bathroom facilities.

Basically you can choose the motorhome based on your initial itinerary, which means you don’t have to worry about anything other than food and water along the way. You can also pick a motor home based on your travel style. If you know you need plenty of power points because you have technological devices then a more modern motorhome will suit, but if you want a motorhome just to get from A to B then there is something available for that too. The choice is yours.

Convenient pick up locations

There are convenient pick up locations all around Australia – including Sydney, Melbourne, Darwin, Alice Springs, Broome, Brisbane, Perth, Cairns, Adelaide, Tasmania and more.

That gives you the convenience to start and end your holiday where you want to. If you just want to travel from Sydney to Melbourne you can, but if you want to travel the other direction from Sydney to Brisbane you can also do that. You get the idea –  travelling in a motorhome is incredibly convenient.

Affordable and family friendly

Hiring a campervan is affordable. Instead of paying thousands of dollars for hotels around Australia, you can stay at a free camping spots or National Parks for a small booking fee.

That means that your only other costs along the way, will be fuel for the vehicle and food. It’s an economical way of travelling and a great way to see as much of Australia as you want to on a budget.

Create magical family memories

Travelling in a motorhome gives you the opportunity to make some memories that will last a lifetime. You can discover historical architecture or visit beaches. When you travel in a motorhome you’ll have the opportunity to pass a variety of destinations and attractions, and will create memories to last a lifetime.

Make new friends as you travel

There’s a reason so many people do motorhome holidays year after year, because they’ve loved the family feel and warm atmosphere of Australia’s camping grounds. With shared barbecue areas, you are bound to meet new people and that means you’ll make friends along the way.

The kids will often make fast new friends too! Pretty much every camping ground has a playground, allowing your kids will have the opportunity to chat and play with other children. You never know, you may just find yourself planning next holiday with your new besties!

Make your friends jealous with a world-class adventure

No matter what your age, having dreams of packing up and travelling around the country in a motorhome is on many people’s bucket list. All you have to think about is food and fuel for the motorhome, but the rest is taken care of for you. You can travel from Sydney to Great Ocean Road, Alice Springs or the famous pink lake, Lake Hillier in Western Australia. You can discover some of Australia’s lesser known beaches and do it all on a budget.
