Australia Off the Beaten Path | Motorhome & RV Rentals

If you’re in the process of brainstorming innovative ideas for your next trip, step outside the realm of traditional vacation planning and consider renting a motorhome with Auto Europe. Particularly favorable for in-depth exploration of larger countries like Australia, choosing to rent a motorhome, campervan or RV during your upcoming getaway is a great way to comfortably experience the sheer magnitude of whatever country you happen to be visiting.

Australia is a vast and expansive destination, and virtually every itinerary is bound to be different. Some travelers are keen on discovering as much of their host country as possible, while others are more interested in exploring one specific area extensively. However you plan on spending your days, opting to rent a recreational vehicle is an exciting and feasible opportunity, due to the country’s abundant caravan parks (often called Holiday or Tourist Parks). These venues are also a cheaper alternative to staying in hotels, and are a great option for larger families, as they are able to comfortably accommodate more travelers. Let’s take a look at some of the other ways you’ll be able to enjoy an RV rental in Australia:

Find Adventure in the Outback

The Australian Outback has been revered as a place where plains seem to stretch into eternity, and possibility is only bound by the limits of your imagination. Gather around a campfire in the Red Centre hub of Alice Springs to hear the poetry and stories of the Outback, while learning more about the history of the region and its people. Even though the Outback is touted as a sunburnt country, the region’s red hills and fiery sunsets are augmented by abundant plant life and cool, inviting waterholes. Spend some time looking at dinosaur footprints and Aboriginal carvings, while fossicking for gold in Queensland, or park your campervan and canoe through Katherine Gorge in the Northern Territory.

Experience Coastal Charisma

With over 3,000 miles of stunning coastline, complete with charming islands, sprawling beaches, colorful reefs and meandering drives, you’ll find millions of ways to stay busy when you’re touring Australia’s coastal regions with a motorhome. Australia’s Great Ocean Road offers impressive coastal views, accented by lavishly varied landscapes, making it one of the world’s most scenic drives. While navigating your RV along the coastline east of Adelaide, you’ll be privy to everything from gorgeous panoramic beach backdrops to rugged cliff-top views, and picturesque city sunrises, rivaled only by the region’s postcard-worthy Indian Ocean sunsets. Australia’s Gold Coast is a region that is world-renowned for its white-sand beaches and incredible surfing opportunities. And let’s not forget the Great Barrier Reef, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, representing some of the finest and most exotic scuba diving and snorkeling opportunities available to travelers.

Indulge in Rainforest Refinement

Pick up your motorhome in Brisbane, and enjoy the impressive amenities of a thriving world-class metropolis.  Once you’ve had your fill of city living, continue traveling along Australia’s east coast, in order to catch a glimpse of native marsupials and other indigenous species in their natural habitat. Just a short drive outside of Brisbane, you will find hidden waterfalls, well-maintained walking trails and dramatic lookouts over Australia’s enchanting World Heritage-listed rainforests. If your journey happens to take you through New South Wales, the Gondwana Rainforests reach across 50 separate parks throughout the territory and into south-east Queensland. Accessible from Byron Bay, this area embraces subtropical, as well as warm and cool temperate rainforest types.  If you’re planning on sticking closer to Sydney, but still want to experience the thrill of the jungle, there are also rainforest pockets scattered throughout the area’s Blue Mountains region!
