Campervan Hire Western Australia – Holiday with Adventure
Campervan Hire Western Australia – On the Beach!
Have you ever hired a campervan before? Are you keen to try “something different” but you’re not sure what to expect? If you’re wondering whether you are suited to a campervan self drive holiday, let us put your mind at ease. In this article, you’ll discover why our customers love our campervans – and why we’re sure you will too!
Camping in Luxury
Traditional camping involves sleeping on hard ground in a cold tent with no hot water, no bathroom and no fridge! No wonder many people are put off. And yet, those same people want to get out and about, experience the outdoor life, see forests, beaches and bush trails. We want the best of both worlds – and our campervan hire in Western Australia (and beyond!) is the perfect solution.
Creature Comforts of Campervan Hire
When you hire a campervan, you can experience the great outdoors without sleeping on the cold, hard ground. You get a comfortable bed, running water and depending on the type of camper you choose, you may even enjoy hot water, a shower and toilet.
Dual Battery Setup Makes it Easy
These campervan luxuries are made possible by a dual battery setup – a secondary battery that is separate from the engine battery. This allows you to operate your fridge, lights and other electronics while your out and about, without draining the main battery. The secondary battery recharges while you drive. You can also plug your campervan directly into mains power at your campsite. All appliances and electronics will then run off the mains power. When you hire a campervan in Western Australia, you’ll find many campsites equipped with bays dedicated to campervans. These are powered bays, so you can plug your van into power.
For “An Amazing Holiday” – Choose Campervan Hire Western Australia
Every day, we hear our customers rave about their “amazing holiday” and how fantastic their campervan has been! Even people who hate camping, or who have never been camping, fall in love with their campervan. Some people have even given their camper a nick name!
We’d love you give YOU the same wonderful experience. To get you started, one of our friendly staff will demonstrate all the campervan’s features, showing you how it all operates. We provide all cutlery and cooking items, all sleeping needs such as blanks and pillows, and much more. After many years of running our family business, we’ve thought of everything and you’ll find everything you need in the vehicle. We’ll even provide extra tents and sleeping gear if you want to make sleeping arrangements less “cosy” (great for teenagers who want to sleep in their own space.)

Although we have pick up and drop off locations all over Australia, most of our customers start their journey in Perth. Indeed, many of our guests come straight from Perth International airport to collect their hire camper – starting their journey on day 1! But where do they go? And where should you go? This blog post contains a few suggested destinations for those of you starting your Perth self drive itinerary.
Going North from Perth
If you have at least 7 days, you can travel North right through to Broome. We have drop-off points in Broome, so you don’t need to worry about racing back to Perth again. If you’ve got a bit more time on your hands, the Kimberley region is worth seeing, especially if you’ve got a four wheel drive to take you off road. You can travel through to Darwin in the Northern Territory, where we also have drop-off points for our vehicles.
Perhaps the best time of year to head North is during Australia’s Winter – July through September. Even though Perth’s Winters are generally very mild, it can be wet and rainy and heading North is a great escape into warmer weather. Despite being Winter, the North West is warm most of the year and you’ll be able to swim at the beach and experience Aussie sunshine all year round.
Going South from Perth
South Western Australia is surprisingly beautiful, studded with world-class wineries and pristine forests. Your sight-seeing might involve wine/cheese/chocolate tastings, cave walks, forest walks, beach swims and more. Margaret River (here’s how to get there) is perhaps the most famous Western Australian wine making region, so head there first and then travel down to August and then east to Denmark and Albany. There’s plenty to see and do and no shortage of designated paid and free tourist attractions.
If you’re visiting Perth in Summer (December-February) and you’re not accustomed to a hot climate, we recommend going South during these months. The climate is milder, but you will still be able to thoroughly enjoy warm sunny days.
Ideas for Shorter Self-Drive Trips from Perth
If you’ve only got a few days for your self drive holiday, that’s fine. Perth is central to a fantastic array of attractions that can be seen within a few hours drive. Our customers often tour Perth’s southern regions inside a few days, seeing Fremantle and the Perth coastline. You can even head down to Margaret River, which is less than a day’s drive and gives you access to pristine beaches and world class wineries. There are also wineries worth visiting that are a little closer to Perth, located in the Swan Valley. If you’d rather head North, we’d recommend a visit to New Norcia, or taking an overnight trip to see the Pinnacles.
Perth Self Drive Hire Camper Vans and Four Wheel Drives
Although you can hire a vehicle for less than a week, most of our customers hire their campervan or four wheel drive for a week or more. Obviously, the more time you have the better for exploring and seeing Australia. In either case, we recommend making the most of each stop when planning your Perth self drive itinerary. Don’t rush through your trip, trying to see as much as possible. Try to relax instead. Even if you don’t have much time, you’ll enjoy your holiday more if you stop and spend time to enjoy each location.
Give our office a call today and talk to us about your holiday ideas. We’ll help you choose between Perth-based hire campervans, our camper trailers and our range of four wheel drives.
It’s May – the last month of Autumn/Fall in Australia. So with Winter fast approaching, where’s the best destination for a self-drive holiday? North of course! Our Australia 4WD Hire is a great way to get there!
Australia 4WD Hire – North from Perth to Broome
North Western Australia continues to offer iconic warm weather and sunny days, even in the middle of Winter. In fact, Broome will often experience a series of blissfully hot days with temperatures as high as 29/30 degrees Celsius during these months. This is perfect for our overseas guests seeking a summer holiday.
Continuing from our last post, we’re highlighting Itineraries from The WesternAustralia.com Website http://www.westernaustralia.com. You’ll discover well thought out Itineraries, a great place to start your journey planning. One of their featured journeys in the Broome Getaway – suggested 7 days. While we think 7 days is too ambitious, we think it’s a fantastic holiday and suggest you allow extra time, especially on the to- and from- legs of the trip.

Book Your Australia 4WD Hire for Perth to Broome Trips
You can book either a 4WD hire or campervan hire for this journey. Of course, a campervan is best if you want to stick to sealed roads and increase your level of comfort; however, the North-west has many off-road tourist destinations, so you might want to consider a 4WD.

Australia is a large continent with a wide variety of climates. Hot, tropical locations in the North and cool wine growing regions in the South, offer great choice and variety for your holiday. This article contains essential tips for making the most of Aussie weather and seasons on your Australian driving holiday.
Follow the Best Weather
Some people love the heat, while others prefer the cold. Depending on your preference, you can follow the most inviting weather by choosing your destinations carefully.
Northern areas of Australia offer warm, balmy weather even during Winter months. Broome and Coral Bay in Western Australia for example, are often preferred by our campervan rental customers during Winter months.
Surprisingly, cooler Southern regions are equally popular during Winter months – especially for people who prefer cool weather and a relaxed holiday of sight-seeing and wine tasting.
The Aussie outback – including central Australia, Alice Springs – can be unbearably hot for tourists coming from colder climates.
Avoid camping on the beach during Winter months. Not only will it be cold, it can also be windy and rainy.
Watch out for Jellyfish swarms in tropical areas and around warm beaches. If in doubt, ask the locals – or the area’s tourist bureau – whether it’s safe to swim.

When planning your campervan hire holiday in Australia, expect to spend a lot of time driving. Australia is a large continent – and Western Australia is the largest state – so there can often be hours of driving between destinations. We’ve compiled the following tips to help you plan holiday activities around your driving schedule.
Plan activity after a long drive. When you’ve spent a long time driving, it’s good to stretch your body and get some fresh air. If you hope to go hiking, surfing or exploring, schedule it for the day after a driving day. It’s a great way to get refreshed and energised before the next drive.
Plan time for rest. Every driving holiday should include a few days of nothing! A day without plans offers freedom to explore, build a campfire, enjoy your campervan and just relax.
Schedule adequate time for each activity. One of the biggest mistakes people make on their driving holiday is trying to cram too many activities into one day. While it’s tempting to do as much as possible, you’ll enjoy a better holiday if you’re not too rushed. One or two activities in a single day is usually enough.
Schedule adequate driving time. In calculating driving distance and time, remember to allow a little extra time. Giving yourself an extra hour to complete a three hour journey gives you time to make stops, take photos, stretch your legs and enjoy a snack or lunch. And if you’re slowed by unexpected traffic delays, you’ll be glad for the buffer of time.
Our best advice is don’t overfill your schedule. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy each day and relax in your campervan.
