Australia has some of the most beautiful destinations in the world, many of which are perfect for taking off road camper trailers. There’s no better way to traverse hundreds of miles, giving you total control of where to go and when you’ll get there. Whether you want to see the awe-inspiring Great Barrier Reef in tropical North Queensland through one of the many Airlie Beach tours, explore the 250 kilometre Great Ocean Road in Victoria or virtually the entirety of Tasmania, there are many exciting adventures you can embark on and many locations you can explore at your own pace from the comfort of an off road camper.
Tropical North Queensland
Tropical North Queensland encompasses a wide range of popular locations spread across 2,000 kilometres between Cairns and Townsville. You can spend nearly two weeks travelling between the two towns, taking in iconic landmarks such as the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. Alternately, you can undertake a shorter 7-day, 400 kilometre journey that includes stopping by Cape Tribulation, Port Douglas, and the AtheronTabelands. Either way, you’re guaranteed to have a spectacular trip that creates long-lasting memories.
The Red Centre
The aptly named red centre in the Northern Territory is quintessentially Australian and known for its dry and dusty landscapes interspersed with outback towns and unique natural landmarks. Travellers rarely regret taking the opportunity to explore this less tamed region of the country. With a camper trailer, you’ll have the means to visit Alice Springs and discover a surrounding arid environment unlike anywhere else in the world. It also offers a great opportunity to travel through the region home to Uluru, a UNESCO World Heritage Site surrounded by many great features.
Great Ocean Road
Any visit to Victoria isn’t complete without cruising down the Great Ocean Road. 150 miles of shoreline from Torquay to Warrnambool can be traversed in five days at a reasonable pace with dramatic views of the ocean to accompany you from start to finish. There are many quaint towns to visit along the way, including Aireys Inlet, which has a reputation for its beautiful beaches and national parks in addition to its exciting live music events. You may also wish to visit the renowned 12 Apostles limestone formations which were formed over thousands of years by geologic processes.
The Blue Mountains
If you’re planning to travel around the surrounding environs of Sydney in off road camper trailers, it’s a great idea to tick off the Blue Mountains from your travel bucket list. The Three Sisters is one of the most famous peaks in this mountain range, with various trails that are suitable for group hikes if you want to stretch your legs and enjoy some magnificent backdrops.
Tasmania is widely regarded around the world as an oasis. The island is small enough that it’s possible to traverse the entirety of it in just ten days. From Devonport to Launceston and Cradle Mountain to St Helens, you can witness the beauty of Tasmania for yourself at your own pace in off road camper trailers. Don’t forget to visit the capital city of Hobart while you’re there.
