Australian Campervan Hire Tips

Australian Campervan HireCampervan hire is an affordable, fun way to travel Australia. Our customers often say the experience is addictive… and they can’t wait to book their next holiday! Although we can’t say hiring a campervan is ‘cheap’, we can say that it is an affordable holiday option. You will certainly get more ‘bang for your buck’ than staying in hotels and finding fixed accommodation during your trip. To help you get more value from your campervan hire, follow these tips:

  • Flexible meals. A mistake people often make is planning their meal times too strictly. Some people plan to cook all meals themselves. Others plan to dine out every night. Cooking all meals yourself can be tiring, especially if you’re always in and out of the grocery store for ingredients. On the other hand, dining out can be expensive… and it can detract from the outdoor holiday experience. We recommend mixing up your dining options. Our vans provide all the facilities you need to cook and clean, so cook for yourself as much as you can but DO give yourself a break and eat out a couple of times a week.
  • Make the most camp area activities. Nearly all Australian holiday parks have dedicated spots for people who are hiring a campervan. You will be able to plug your van into mains power and recharge your equipment. You’ll also enjoy a variety of activities available to camp area guests. These facilities may include a swimming pool or tennis court. If you stay in a remote bush camp area, you will no doubt find a walking trail nearby. There are plenty of activities you can do without needing to visit expensive tourist attractions, so make the most of them. You’ll save money and benefit from a more relaxing holiday.

Campervan hire gives you an extremely flexible holiday. If you find a place you love, you’re free to stay a little while longer. We hope you’ve enjoyed these Australian campervan hire tips. You’ll enjoy the freedom that comes from having no fixed schedule of accommodation.

We hired the campervan for 15 days in May
to explore the coast from Perth to Monkey Mia. The

helpful and easy to deal with. We had a great time
and it was fun. Highly recommended.

Things to See and Do in Monkey Mia

The fishing also comes highly recommended.

The Bungle Bungles – 4WD Hire Recommended Destination

Bungle Bungles 4WD Hire

4WD Hire Ultimate Bungle Bungles ExperienceHiking through the Bungle Bungles
by David Busch Aus

Our 4WD hire is a fantastic way to see the Bungle Bungles. You can take your four-wheel-drive vehicle and drive right in.

You’ll be able to access areas that others can’t… and secure some very nice camping spots.

About the Bungle Bungles

People have traveled from all over the world just to take a hike through the Bungle Bungle’s beehive-like limestone formations. It is hard to believe that these unusual tiger stripes are made from algae that grows and penetrates the pores of the honeycombed rock. The stunning red/orange color is built up from a combination of manganese and iron where they stain the rock.

Historically, the Bungle Bungles in Western Australia was where the Aboriginal people lived during the wet season, where there was a lot of wild life and plant life to sustain them. Almost no one knew about this place until the middle of the 1980s. In 1987 it was named a national park and in 2003 it gained world wide recognition when it was inscribed into the World Heritage List.

Bungle Bungles 4WD Hire Experience

For our International customers wanting to experience the Outback – or even Aussies who have never really been off road – we recommend a 4wd hire drive out to the Bungle Bungles in Western Australia. The Bungle Bungles is now world renowned and many tourists make a point of seeing this beautiful place on their West Australian holiday. As our customers often tell us… you will not be disappointed.

4WD Rooftop Camper Hire – Experience Australia

4WD Rooftop Camper Hire - Off the Beaten Track

4WD Rooftop Camper Hire - Off the Beaten Track

Check out this photo of one of our hire campers – a 4WD rooftop camper. This photo was sent in by a happy holiday maker enjoying the great outdoors. If you’d like to escape to secluded areas like this, 4WD hire is a great way to get off the beaten track. And the rooftop tent makes camping even better.

Benefits of Traveling Light

Rooftop campers are super portable and always ready to go. There’s no need to tow a trailer or caravan, so you don’t have to worry about vehicle access. You are free to travel wherever your 4WD will go!

Easy Setup-up and Pack-down.

Nobody wants to spend hours setting up tents, especially after a busy day of activity.  The rooftop camper tent simply folds down and you’re ready. The pack-down process is just as easy, making your mornings easy. You can set off early on your adventures, making the most of every day.

High and Dry

Sleeping high-and-dry is exactly what you want when you’re camping! Less worry about ants, bugs and creepy crawlies. Being off ground, there’s also less sand and dirt in your tent and, therefore, less clean up. Our customers also appreciate the dry tent floor.

Level Sleeping Surface

It’s always difficult to find a smooth area for setting up ground tents. With rooftop camper hire, you don’t have to worry about slopes, sticks or stones ruining your holiday sleep.

Hire a Rooftop Camper

If you like today’s photo and you’re keep to hire a rooftop camper, give us a call today or use the easy booking forms on this website. (Sorry these are no longer available for hire.) Remember, if you’re traveling in a group, you can add a camper trailer to your hire for the ultimate sleeping space and camping gear setup.

Best Campervan Hire – Reviews Our Toyota Campervan

Hi Terry.

We had a fabulous celebration
when Our Toy-ota celebrated its
25,ooo km Anniversary earlier this week.

She had already enjoyed a restful, shady week in Broome,
and we treated her to a luxury sudsy all-over bubble-bath,
with her usual special face and chest wash
*she does LOVE collecting those bugs on her chest*
and she was as clean as a whistle
ready for the party in her honour.

and a rousing chorus of "For She's a Jolly Good Camper Van".
(just kidding about that last bit!)

We are still enjoying our trip 100% + + +
thanks to you, Terry,
and your fantastic Camper Van Toy-ota.

Kind regards,

Maxine and Neil
Relaxing in The Shade at Kakadu this week.


Thanks for the giggle Maxine and Neil! We’re so glad you’re enjoying your holiday.
