Yep, Australia is big, very big, however there are lots of areas which are perfect for weekend getaways! Great Ocean Road, Kakadu National Park and Jervis Bay are just a few of many ideal campervan weekend trips…
1.Victoria – Great Ocean Road
The Great Ocean Road is probably the most famous short-term “campervan” trip – ideal for 3 to 5 days travels. Travel along the coast and check out the famous twelve apostles. There are also plenty of national parks & water activities (Apollo Bay) around so this is a must for any traveller in Australia
2. Northern Territory – Lichtfield & Kakadu National Park
Lichtfield & Kakadu National Park as just amazing – plan a day at Lichtfield National Park followed by 2 to 3 days around Kakadu! With lots of waterfalls as well as gorges you will have the time of your life! Don’t forget the sunscreen and be aware of the naughty crocodiles – there be plenty during the water wildlife cruises
3. New South Wales – Sydney
Yes – Sydney. Where to start – Kuringai Chase National Park, Central Coast & Port Stephens in the north – Royal National Park, Shell Harbour & Jervis Bay in the south – Hunter Valley for the wine lovers! Do we have to say more – that’s half a dozen weekend trips on its own :-)
4. Queensland – Noosa
Noosa is an all favourite with Australia – it’s the “posh” get away with a 200 km distance from Brisbane. It has everything you want from a quick getaway trip – national parks, awesome beaches and yes, plenty of awesome cafes & restaurants. Plenty attractions around with Australia Zoo & Fraser Island too.
5.Northern Territory – Red Centre – Alice Springs/Uluru
Drive the 1135km loop from Alice Springs and explore the vast and diverse landscapes of the Red Centre. Discover icons of the Australian continent, from Uluru and Kata Tjuta to Kings Canyon, Alice Springs and the West MacDonnell Ranges. Please check also out our suggested itinerary.
