The Best Ways To Explore Australia By Campervan

Did you know that Australian van lifers shower at the beach 39 percent of the time compared to only 4 percent in the rest of the world? It sounds like a relaxed lifestyle, doesn’t it?

If you’re thinking of going exploring in a campervan, there’s no better place to do it than Australia. You can spend a few days or a few months seeing everything it has to offer. Let’s look at some of the best ways to explore Australia in a van.

Visit Surfing Hotspots

Australia offers some of the best surfing in the world. Tea Tree Bay, Currumbin, Tallows Beach, Boomerang Beach, and many others - you’ll find amazing waves just begging to be ridden.

With a campervan, you can park close by and be one of the first to hit the surf the next morning. You might even come across an out-of-the-way beach with the perfect waves during your travels. If so, you can easily pull off to the side of the road and test the waters.

Stay Under the Stars to See Aurora Australis

The Aurora Australis, or Southern Lights, is something everyone should experience at least once. And there’s no better way to see them than parking your campervan under the clear sky then laying back and gazing up at the show. Some of the best places to see the aurora are Mt Wellington, Seven Mile Beach, Bicheno, South Arm and Cradle Mountain in Tasmania and in Apollo Bay near Melbourne in Victoria.

Check the Aurora forecast to find the best time to see the Lights.

Wake Up to Beautiful Views

Australia has a wide variety of landscapes and sights to see. Whatever view you like to wake up to, you’ll be able to find it. Whether it’s the glowing red of Ayer’s Rock in NT, the lush green hills of McLaren Vale in SA, Cape Byron Lighthouse in NSW, beautiful Airlie Beach in QLD or incredible Cradle Mountain in TAS, can all be right outside your campervan’s window in the morning.

Stay at National Parks to Explore Every Bushwalk

If outdoor activities are more your speed, Australia’s national parks offer endless opportunities.

Explore every bushwalk, climb rock faces, swim in beautiful pools, and more - all from the comfort and convenience of your campervan parked nearby. Want an epic journey? Try to tick off all the walks listed in the 60 Great Short Walks in Tasmania book.

Cook Your Own Meals with Local Produce

Many cities and towns in Australia have farmers’ markets where local farmers sell freshly-picked produce as well as local meats, cheeses, and other fresh food.

With a campervan, you’ll have a kitchen to prepare meals so you can pick up fresh produce wherever you are and enjoy something different every day.

Stay as Long as You Want

One of the best parts of exploring in a campervan is that you can stay as long as you want. You don’t have to worry about reservations or schedules, just take things as they come.

If you’re enjoying a particular spot, stay a little longer. If something else isn’t what you’d expected, you can pack up the van and head a bit further down the road to see what else comes along.
