      Yes I think campervan travel is a lot more of a relaxed style, no scheduled to adhere to or delays with missed trains, flights, etc.

    I have to say this article is very well written and I really like the writing style. Keep up the good work.
    I wish some day i will also explore all these places in australia.

  3. Great post. We drove the great ocean road in a beat up old 1986 Nissan campervan with 750,000km on the clock about 10 years back. It was the most fun I’ve had! The feeling of freedom you get with a camper van is incomparable with any other way of travelling in my opinion! Reading this makes me want to head straight back down under,

  4. We’ve never been in a camper van but I can see the advantages of using one in such a vast area as Australia. It looks like a much more comfortable way to travel than a car. Thanks for sharing your tips on #FarawayFiles

    This is really interesting. I am currently enjoying my off-road adventures with my 4WD. The awesome guys from helped me with my car’s suspension and accessories needed for my trips which I think is really important if you want no hassle on your trip. I haven’t tried going on a campervan but it sure looks fun. Someday, maybe. For now, I’m good with my 4WD. 😉

  9. Great post guys! Road tripping through Oz is definitely the way to go. We had great fun doing the East Coast route earlier this year. We bought (and then sold) a station wagon and either slept in the back or camped in a tent. Your pictures look awesome and bring back so many memories. You’re definitelty spot on about saving some money, especially with so many free camping grounds! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I love camping, I love the great outdoors and I love nature. I guess a campervan trip through Australia would be so my cup of tea. I was just wondering if it is necessary to have a 4×4 campervan, depending if there is a lot of deep sand to drive through? Love your photos, btw

  11. I can’t argue with you that campervans are a great way to see Australia. However David and I have been to many, many places in Australia, including all the ones you mention, just in a car. The only parts of Australia which don’t have motels are the very remote areas which you wouldn’t get through without a 4WD.

    I love a good road trip! And my husband, myself and our good friends just rented a campervan exactly like that one and did a road trip of Oregon.I’m not sure where I’d go in Australia as I’ve never been and I’d want to see it all – which just isn’t possible – but I know I would enjoy it!
