Go on the ultimate flexible travel experience with zero worries about shelling out extra budget on costly transport and accommodation when you hire one of our awesome Australian campervans. With your own wheels and everything you could possibly need supplied with your camper, all you need to think about is where you're going to begin your adventure.
Pick your camper up from one of four locations in Australia, and choose to make a one-way trip, dropping it back at a different location, or do a return trip and end up back where you started.
You'll be behind the wheel of a modern, fuel-efficient and spacious camper, kitted out with sleeping area, gas hobs, fridge, and freezer. And instead of having a clunky and difficult to manoeuvre vehicle, you'll have an easy, smooth driving camper that handles like a car and can be driven anywhere.
It's a great way to get out and travel Australia, and without any restrictions on mileage, you can literally drive around the entire country if you like! Sharing with a friend or partner? Even better, you'll halve your costs just by bringing one of your favourite travel buddies along for the ride!
We'll cover your insurance and make sure you're covered for any breakdown services, and if you download the free app, you'll be able to find free and budget-friendly campsites wherever you go in Australia – we'll even give you a list of partners offering discounted rates on trips and activities to make your trip the best it can be.
You'll become quite attached to your camper during your travels in Australia, and no doubt will enjoy plenty of adventures together.
Our lowest-cost option, the Alpha is our most popular choice among travellers. As with all our award-winning campervans, the alpha is compact on the outside and spacious on the inside. You won't have to worry about how to manoeuvre a big, clunky vehicle, our Alpha camper comes in the form of an automatic Toyota Estima and drives just like a car and can be taken anywhere.

You can start and end your campervan adventure from any of the following collection points in Australia:
Commence your road trip in the relaxed resort town on the Whitsunday Coast in Queenland. The perfect gateaway to the Whitsunday Islands and lower Great Barrier Reef. With it's palm fringed beaches, outside restaurants and weekly markets this is a great destination from which to explore the region. Why not check out the tropical rainforest and waterfalls of Conway National Park or the towns of Mackay and Townsville.
Start your adventure slap bang in the middle of Australia's East Coast and discover the best galleries, rooftop bars, and museums in the city. Making your way to the outskirts of Brisbane, you'll come across beautiful subtropical beaches, low-lying valleys, and fragrant vineyards to roam. Close by are some of Australia's best coastal gems, from the bohemian vibes of Byron Bay and the peace and laidback living of Port Macquarie, to the rainforest and national parks of Gold Coast, and the paradise views from K'gari.
Start or end your journey in Australia's most eastern town - Byron Bay. Famous for being the centre of Australia's counter-culture, this coastal town has epic beaches, great surfing, world class festivals and a vibrant community of local people. Visit the iconic Byron Bay lighthouse, hike along the Cape Byron track or just put your feet up and relax at one of the many wellness retreats and spas.
If you're starting your adventure in the north of Australia's East Coast, you'll probably be flying into Cairns, which is a fantastic place to explore. The gateway city to natural wonder of the world, the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns draws crowds from all over the globe, but there's plenty to see on land as well as the tropical wonders under the sea. Don't miss a visit to UNESCO World Heritage Site, Daintree Rainforest – one of the oldest rainforests in the world, and be sure to fit in some awesome adrenalin-pumping activities, too.
Tiny Tasmania is not often on a first time travellers Australia bucket-list, but we think it should be! Whilst it has shaken off it's reputation as a quiet backwater, Tasmania is still refreshingly underedeveloped and has amazing wildlife - such as the Tassie devil! Explore hidden coves and beaches, feast on local artisan produce and take in stunning mountain scenery.
Situated in the far south of Australia, Melbourne is all about enjoying life, which is why you'll often find its gorgeous parks and gardens playing host to music festivals, sporting events, and friendly social activities that cater to everyone's tastes. Take your time in Melbourne and enjoy discovering the city without the aid of a guide book – you'll find plenty to keep you entertained all by yourself. Drive along the Great Ocean Road on your way out of Melbourne for one of the most scenic road routes in the world.
One of Australia's best known and most popular cities, Sydney is a good place to start your travels from, giving you the option to head north or south with a bit of sophistication and fun to get things off to a good start. There's plenty of sightseeing to do in Sydney, so allow plenty of time to go and gawp at the Opera House, sip cocktails in the harbour, and hit the surf on Bondi Beach. If you're looking for adventure just outside of the city, you can't go far wrong by heading for the Blue Mountains, or making the journey to Wollongong for views of rugged coastline, paragliding opportunities, and the chance to see a Buddhist temple in not so usual surroundings.
If you book a trip for more than 21 days we can also arrange a free airport pick up. Speak to a travel advisor for more info!

This trip is designed with your safety and wellbeing in mind. As a result of Covid-19, many of our suppliers and partners around the world are introducing new policies and procedures surrounding health and safety in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. As the state of travel is evolving these new safety measures will adapt over time, and will be different for each trip. Here are some of the changes you may see on your trip:
Arrival safety meetings
Most trips have an arrival meeting on the first day where the guide or local team will run through the trip, the safety protocols, and to answer any questions you may have. Now more than ever it is important you arrive in time for these meetings.
Proof of vaccination or negative covid test
For the safety of all travellers, at the start of some trips you may be required to show evidence that you are fully vaccinated (14 days after your second dose) and/or show evidence of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the tour start date in order to join the programme.
Updated hygiene and safety procedures
Our suppliers and partners have health and safety procedures in place on all of our trips. These protocols will be updated and adapted as a response to the Coronavirus outbreak, dependent on local restrictions and laws.
Transport and accommodation choices
Our suppliers and partners choose the accommodation and transport on our trips very carefully, and you may see a change to what would normally be used as a response to the outbreak. This may involve such changes as enhanced use of private transport or quieter accommodation.
Trained and knowledgeable staff
Our staff in the UK are trained to help you with your trip before you depart and answer any questions you may have. In addition, the local team and guides on our trips are there to help with any health and safety concerns and to ensure our trips run safely and smoothly.
Reduced group sizes
Some trips will run with reduced group sizes to start with. You may find that trips are more intimate and chilled, whilst still being packed with fun and adventure.
Your guide or the local team will be on hand to help you seek medical attention should you require it during your trip. As medical facilities and standards can vary around the world, you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place before you depart to cover you for any medical emergencies.
24/7 emergency support
We operate an emergency phone line for our travellers abroad. This is operated by a UK based member of staff 24/7 if you have a genuine emergency or urgent matter that you need attending.
It is important that you take measures to make travelling safer for yourself and others around you. Ensure you frequently wash your hands, cover your face when you sneeze and cough, bring and use your own hand sanitiser and facial coverings/masks, and enable social distancing where necessary. You should also ensure you listen to the instructions and guidance of the local team at all times, and follow all local laws and restrictions.
