Australia’s Best Self-Drive Destinations for Motorhoming

Hiring a camper is the perfect excuse to go in search of the
country’s most scenic self-drive routes. Whether you enjoy the winding
coastal roads or are more partial to the countryside, here are a few of
Australia’s best self-drive destinations for your camper escape.

 

The Great Ocean Road 

Perhaps the most scenic coastal drive in the country, the
Great Ocean Road  is truly an Australian travel bucket-list destination.
Along this winding coastal road you will discover pristine beaches,
charming sea-side villages and the renowned 12 Apostles, impressive rock
stacks that rise up from the Southern Ocean. Admire the limestone
cliffs, encounter picturesque walks and certainly don’t forget your
camera. This self-drive escape is ideal for your camper adventure
year-round.

Red Centre Way 

Many visiting Australia are in search of that true blue
Aussie outback experience and the Red Centre Way in the Northern
Territory offers exactly that. Along this beaten outback route you will
come across some of the country’s most famed natural icons including
world-renowned Uluru. Discover the unique terrain of Alice Springs and
the Central Australian Landscape before driving into the depths of
Watarrka National Park and the alluring Kings Canyon, a 100 metre high
canyon crammed with red and rugged edges. Along the way you will come
face-to-face with the country’s renowned wildlife and see some of the
most spectacular rock formations and sunsets you will ever have the
pleasure to see.

NSW South Coast Drive

 Australia may just be home to the best coastline in the
world and the NSW South Coast Drive will give you a taste of the beauty
on offer. As you cruise along the coastal road you will encounter quaint
water-side villages and towns and a myriad of lakes and rivers ideal
for water-based activities. Explore the popular coastal towns of
Bateman’s Bay and Jervis Bay or visit Blowhole Point in Kiama. This
self-drive adventure is a great idea for families and allows you to kick
back and relax in the Australian sunshine. Enjoy!

West Coast Wilderness, Tasmania 

Tasmania’s wild west coast often gets missed off a
first-time visit to the state. However, this 3-4 day drive should not be
removed from any self-drive itinerary as it showcases Tasmania’s
highlight attractions and wild wilderness. The drive links three
spectacular World Heritage areas: Cradle Mountain, the rugged waters of
the Franklin River and majestic Lake St Clair. Along the way you will
encounter Tasmania’s tallest waterfall in Zeehan, the West Coast
Wilderness Railway  and the unique terrain surrounding the old mining
town of Queenstown.

Pacific Coast Touring Route 

The Pacific Coast Touring Route offers everything from
lush forest areas to top food and wine encounters. It begins in the
country’s famous metropolis of Sydney and finishes up in sub-tropical
Brisbane. Start your journey ticking off your bucket-list activities in
Sydney by exploring the famous Quay or completing the jaw-dropping
bridge climb. Head up the central coast and pull over to experience some
of the country’s finest wine in the Hunter Valley, absorb the laidback
and alternate vibe in Byron Bay or visit the fun-filled theme parks in
the Gold Coast. This self-drive adventure has something to cater to all
travel requirements and is highly recommended for your motorhome
adventure.
