It is becoming increasingly popular for people to consider an adventure in Australia by travelling in a campervan. It is not only Australians getting out and enjoying this experience, but people from all over the world. Whether you hire a campervan in Australia, or have purchased your own vehicles you can join the many Grey Nomads that are exploring Australia at their own pace and in their own way. If you are not familiar with the term Grey Nomads, they are generally people 45 years plus, who have all the time in the world to travel around the great continent of Australia. Sometimes these people are looking for seasonal work to supplement their retirement savings - others are simply enjoying life. Generally the Grey Nomads own their own rig, whether a campervan or a caravan, with many selling up their family property to enjoy this lifestyle for years at a time. There are plenty of people though, who choose campervan hire in Australia, rather than invest thousands of dollars in a vehicle. Campervan hire provides more flexibility to have the right type of campervan to match the destination. It's also a cost effective way for international visitors who enjoy the outdoors and camping to explore Australia, without the need to bring their personal gear. Campervan hire provides transport, accommodation and a kitchen for enjoying the local produce, which allow savings to go further. Australia offers literally thousands of free or low cost camping options which are perfect for someone who's thinking about campervan hire. There are many publications and websites which provide more detail, however it is fairly obvious around 4pm in the afternoon if you're away from the main cities. You'll see several campervans and motor homes stopped in beautiful locations getting ready for the mandatory 'happy hour'. This is a good opportunity to have a chat to fellow travellers about the best locations to travel in Australia, and where you may find the next stunning camping location. escorts Brisbane
A popular route to travel in a campervan is the East Coast of Australia. There are many stunning beaches that have nearby campgrounds. If you are lucky, there may even be the odd deserted beach for an early morning walk before you head out on the days adventure. If you are considering campervan hire, and have at least a month or two available, there are plenty of options. One that many fellow campervanners have travelled is the coastal road from Adelaide to Cairns. Adelaide is well known for its wine regions and gourmet food, with many towns on the coastal road to Sydney, via Melbourne providing fresh seafood. The Great Ocean Road is also one of the most famous roads in Australia, and really is quite spectacular as you meander along the coastal roads in your campervan. Visiting Wilsons Promontory and Phillip Island is a must. It is possible to see Little Penguins in the wild at Phillip Island as they ride the waves and waddle up the beach to their burrows. escortsPerth
You'll be amazed at the beautiful coastal towns all the way along the coast as you start heading north. The great thing by having a campervan is that there is no need to book accommodation or be concerned about where you will spend the evenings, as your bed and kitchen are with you all the time. Travelling in a campervan gives you greater flexibility to stop for the night, if one of these beautiful towns takes your fancy. As you continue meandering north, you'll notice there are plenty of islands to explore off the coast from Brisbane to Cairns. One of the most popular is Fraser Island which is the largest sand island in the world. It is easy to arrange a 4WD day tour of the island's highlights, or even longer if you prefer. The Whitsunday's is best explored by boat, but don't underestimate the stunning views that you can get from the mainland overlooking all the islands and the brilliant blue water. The drive to Cairns does not disappoint as you travel the coast through pockets of tropical rainforest. Cairns is a worthy finale to the East Coast Adventure with the Great Barrier Reef beckoning.
