New South Wales

New South Wales is not Australia’s largest state, but due to it’s international reputation it definitely punches above its weight when it comes to attracting tourists. In fact did you know, NSW received 32.1% of all visitors to Australia and accounted for nearly 29% of overnight stays!

And whilst you may think that people came to visit the iconic beaches, Sydney Harbour, top notch restaurants and the myriad of museums , truth is, more visitors to NSW spend time overnight in rural destinations, than they do in the city.

Which may mean they know things you are yet to find out. Like where to find the best surf in the state, or where you can enjoy some outback hospitality, amazing hiking trails or go caving. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back as we have and will continue to put together a number of itineraries for you to sample and enjoy on your campervan adventures around Australia.

If you believe the residents of Sydney, they would have you believe Sydney is the Capital of Australia, however, the truth is, Canberra in the ACT (Australian Capital Territory) is the true Capital of Australia.

Victoria

It may be one of the smaller states of Australia, but the state of Victoria crams a lot in. Just Ask any Victorian which state is better, NSW or Victoria and you will get beaten about the head For them it is a no contest. And Victoria has a pretty good claim which it puts forward.

Victoria – and more specifically Melbourne – puts on some of the country’s largest sporting events (from the Melbourne Cup, to the Australian F1, to the AFL grand final and much more. Yet, even if sport is in the blood of the state, there is a refined and elegant side to Victoria worth checking out.

Whilst we are building a list of itineraries to check out whilst you are down there, some extra things you may want to check out include The Mornington Peninsula, The Great Ocean Road (which is often described as one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world), The Ski Fields, the Grampians and so much more.

Queensland

Queensland is well known around the world for the Great Barrier Reef, Noosa and even the Gold Coast, but journey inland in your campervan and you will see some of the most spectacular sights Australia has to offer.

If you’re starting in Sydney, try getting off the beaten track and head North on the Great Inland Way all the way to Cooktown, or check out Stanthorpe which is becoming known as a culinary hotspot due to the wineries popping up, the deli’s, fresh fruit barns and more dotted throughout the area.

And there is so much more, from the Matilda Highway stretching through grasslands and desert, to North Queensland and the Daintree Rainforest, Queensland is somewhere you need to plan to spend weeks, not just days.

Western Australia

With the longest coastline of any of Australia’s States or Territory’s you may think that Western Australia has nothing else to offer other than amazing views of the Indian Ocean.
But you would be wrong. Sure, Western Australia does have some amazing places to surf, and Broome is well known as a holiday spot for those looking for something special, but there is so much more you need to check out. From the World Heritage Listed Ningaloo Visitor Centre to the Savannah Way (an epic journey from Broome over the Fitzroy river and inland) and the mighty Gibb River road which is only accessible during the months of April to November.
Oh yes, there is a lot to see and do in Western Australia.

South Australia

South Australia is one of those destinations that just has to be seen (and explored) to be believed. There is so much to do and such a wide diversity of weather, animals and sights to see that it is almost a crime not to come at different times of the year to see just how different it can be.

From the 100km long Bunda Cliffs in the Great Australian Bite, to the extreme desert conditions of the Nullarbor Plain, to the rolling hills of the world acclaimed Barossa Valley or the Riverland, South Australia has an adventure for everyone. With the right planning seeing all that South Australia has to offer will be a couple of week adventure – but one that is definitely worth it.

Tasmania

A lot of Australian’s do not know much about our southernmost state, so if you have little idea of what to expect there, you are not alone. However, we can assure you first-hand that Tasmania (or Tassie as the locals call it) is a brilliant city full of great places to see live music, eat great food (They make some amazing cheeses), and just chill. The trick is to know where to go of course.

Some of the things you may want to see whilst you are down in this part of the word include the protected Huon Pine trees which are some 10,000 years old, Cradle Mountain, The Bay of Fires or take a slow and leisurely drive from Hobart to Launceston.

Of course if you are looking to do something more adrenalin filled, why not try Canyoning at Cradle mountain the mountain bike trail at Blue Derby Pods or Swim with the seals at the Tasman Peninsula.

Northern Territory

Home to Uluru (once known as Ayer’s Rock), Kings Canyon and Darwin, The Northern Territory has a lot to offer the wide-eyed traveller. But planning your trip is essential, because if you head too far inland without the right setup, you could come unstuck.

But don’t get put off by that, the key is knowing what you want to see and how long to allow for it. Some of the more popular things to do whilst travelling through the ‘Top of Australia” include camping near Uluru, taking a swim in the Kings Canyon, Spending time in Kakadu National Park where everyone of your senses if overwhelmed by spectacular beauty, to visiting the sites of Darwin which was attacked by Japanese forces in WWII.

Of course there is so much more to do in the Northern Territory, the catch is planning what to do first.
