Campervan Trip in Australia for Families – Top 4 Places to See

Campervan Trip in Australia

Road trips are amazing! I love taking them with my kids and husband. They are a great way for all of us to explore and spend a lot of quality time together. Our favorite modality of road trips is in a campervan. That is because we don’t need a hotel or wait for restaurants. They provide a much more private and independent experience.

Lately, I have been looking into a campervan hire in Australia and the different, unique routes for us to do. There are so many cool ones that go from five days to a whole month. I am having a really hard time deciding what I would like my family to see and do.

4 Top Places to See on a Campervan Trip in Australia

1. The Great Barrier Reef
This barrier reef is the largest living thing in the world. I don’t think I would forgive myself if we traveled to Australia and not checked it out. It should be on everyone’s list of the must visit places during a Campervan road trip in Australia.

It is made of 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands and tours like scuba diving and cruising are available from many companies. So you definitely get the chance to truly enjoy and learn from it.

2. Karijini National Park
Now, this is a place you can’t miss if you are taking a trip along the opposite side of the country (west). It is of particular interest for my family because my husband and sons love climbing and there are some great rock walls here.

You will also find tons of waterfalls and water holes where you can have fun with the family. It’s a great spot for cruising around in your campervan.

3. Gibb River Road
This is a former cattle road that you can visit for an off the beaten path experience in Australia. It goes through some of the most remote areas of Western Australia. So if you are an adventurer this is definitely for you.

But keep in mind that it is often closed during the rainy season, so don’t try to get there from November to March.

4. Sydney Harbour Bridge
This one is nowhere close to being as adventurous as the previous three but I think that driving along the Sydney Harbour Bridge and stopping for a while to appreciate the beauty of the iconic Sydney Opera House is something that we can’t miss.

Which are the landmarks in Australia that you would hate to miss during a campervan trip in Australia?
