Turn Your Family Holiday Into a Melbourne Adventure

These days, a lot of people see travelling not just as a leisure activity but also as a way to explore the world and discover new places. There are many different ways of travelling and exploring a country, but if you want to discover Melbourne, the best way to do it in my (I'll admit, slightly campervan obsessed) experience is, you guessed it, with a campervan!

Make your trip amazing

Melbourne is one of the most populated cities in Australia. Some people who decide to explore this place opt to stay in a hotel or a bed and breakfast. What a waste! Sure this allows them to explore what's within the city center, maybe even the most popular tourist attractions surrounding Melbourne if they take a tour, but there's no way you're going to experience all of what this city has to offer like that.

How To Make Your Trip To Brisbane More Convenient - Hire A Campervan!

Being a smaller city compared to Sydney or Melbourne does not mean that Brisbane is lagging behind in terms of things to do. One of Australia’s premier cities, Brisbane is a hotspot of culture and recreation. While the city center is a fast moving metropolis of its own, the natural sights around the outer edges of Brisbane makes the city a wildly popular tourist attraction. With a number of must-see destinations on hand, a viable transportation service is definitely essential. There is always a need to move people around to various views in the city, but to visit beyond the urban sprawl and to get a real feel for everything Brisbane has to offer, it's a great idea to hit the road in a campervan to make your holiday your own adventure.

One of the best things about renting a motorhome in Brisbane is that they are so immediately accessible.

Here are some tips and answers to a few Frequently Asked Questions I've been getting in my inbox about campervans/motorhomes and traveling round Australia:

Then you can either call their customer care number or use their online booking system. Make sure that the motor home company of your choice provides the vehicles from your departure point, not just where you live.

All motor home companies provide the traveler with an emergency contact number. Simply dial the number and provide your location. They'll send help. In the meantime, prepare a cup of coffee and enjoy the view!

How To Pick The Right Motorhome For Your Next Trip Round Australia

Being home to some of the most amazing natural landscapes in the world, Australia is a favourite destination among travelers and vacationers. Although the country prides itself on it's cosmopolitan world class cities like Sydney and Melbourne, its natural landscapes are some of the most popular destinations for tourists looking to escape the hustle and bustle. People are excited to see the picturesque parklands, the beautiful beaches and the serene atmosphere of the countryside. 
If there's one thing that can make traveling the world's largest island continent an experience you'll never forget, it's touring the country from coast to coast in a portable motorhome, allowing you to see the sights all the way from Ayers Rock to the Twelve Apostles at your own leisure and in your own time. Getting the best deal on the right motorhome rental is one of the single most important things to make trips enjoyable.

Get To Know About Hiring Campervans In Perth

There are quite a few things that you need to consider while looking to hire a campervan or RV in Perth, or anywhere in Australia for that matter. Touring with campervans has become hugely popular as more and more baby boomers seek out more comfortable ways to see the sights in their retirement years, when sleeping in tents and hostels will no longer suffice.
There are lots of agencies in and around the city of Perth that offer various kinds of campervans and motorhomes packages to suit your needs. Whether you're after comfort, space for families, or extra features such as entertainment units and refridgeration, there are a whole range of different vehicles to suit your needs and budget.
When it comes to picking your camper, there are a lot of things to consider. First things first you need to have an idea of how much the agency you're going to go with costs compared to their competitors.

Tasmania – Explore The Apple Isle

Tasmania is Australia's smallest State, a small island 150 miles off the southern coast of the mainland. Its capital city Hobart offers a range of urban wonders from food to art and performances, while this little island also boasts many unique and fascinating natural wonders, from walking tracks to, pristine beaches, to the spectacular old growth forests of the Styx Valley. There are several national parks and world heritage sites – in fact over a quarter of the country is now National Parkland! I'd say the best way to fully explore Tasmania from coast to coast and take in all is has to offer is to travel by camper.

RVs and campers are becoming a hugely popular travel option for retirees and professional globetrotters to visit new places without the hastle and cost of hotels and transport. There are several reasons for this – freedom and flexibility, comfort, an easy way to spend more time with family and the biggest of them all – budget. Getting to a new location is easy enough, but to spend any length of time exploring it can be an expensive proposition even before accommodation is taken into account. That is why campervans make for such a popular choice. People these days don't just want to see something and leave. More and more, people are looking for a retreat or escape, where they can just pull up and enjoy the sites without limits or restrictions.
