One of the best ways to experience an Australian holiday is to hire a campervan or motor home and drive yourself to all the fantastic places that you have always wanted to see. Australia is a modern western nation with sealed highways right around its perimeter and it is a safe country to travel in. There are many companies that specialize in providing late model vehicles for rental and they come in all sorts of different styles and layouts. Your budget will also be one criterion and there are vehicles available that range from the most basic van through four wheel drive off road campers right through to the most luxurious Winnebago style motor homes.
The biggest advantage of a motor home or campervan holiday is that you don't have to worry about accommodation and you can go where ever you like and stay as long as you like for only a very small extra expense. Even the largest cities have great parks so your budget can be allocated to better things like tours to places of interest or eating out instead of self catering all of the time. The distances in Australia are so vast that this type of holiday is the only way to keep costs down, especially when travelling through places like the Northern Territory to see Kakadu National Park and Ayres Rock or in Western Australia travelling through the Kimberley or the Pilbara.
Major hire companies have depots in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns, Darwin, Alice Springs, Broome, Perth and Adelaide as well as in Tasmania. This makes it really convenient for pick ups, drop offs and assistance in the event that you might need something during the course of your travels. Overseas driving licences are recognized in Australia so it is not necessary to get something special. Different insurance options are also available depending on how much risk you are prepared to carry yourself.
If you think that you would like to holiday in Australia then why not consider hiring a campervan or motor home.
