Australia is famous the world over for its amazing beaches, massive coral reef, and Sydney icons such the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. This, of course, is only a small piece of a country so big it is also a continent. Australia has plenty of accessible yet little-known hidden gems such as vineyards, untouched beaches, wild wildlife, and a barren outback. Seeing these sights is best by camper van from DriveNow, one of Australia’s top and most trusted car rental providers. With a camper van, you can leisurely experience this amazing country and see some of its very best kept secrets. Here are just a few of these locations in Australia to Visit via Campervan:

Port Macquarie

The ultimate offbeat campervan destination if you want the complete Aussie experience. With miles and miles of pristine and uncrowded beaches, ideal for casual surfing, diving, and dolphin/whale encounters, this paradise offers everyone great camping opportunities. The picturesque sunsets from the Beach House or facing your campervan is a sight to behold.

Winjana Gorge

You’ll find no better outback trip than the one to Winjana gorge found in the Kimberley region. It’s the finest place in Australia to watch freshwater crocodiles in the wild. This location has an amazing camping area close to the gorge walls. Only a few tourists spend the night here, so if you do, be sure to head out early in the morning to watch the crocodiles coming out of the water for their daily sunbath.

North Australia’s Cairns is a perfect location for your East Coast trip. There are some off beaten tracks that are full of surprises just waiting to be discovered. Aside from being the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns has much to offer in surrounding areas as well. Drive to the Daintree Rainforest, where you’ll be welcomed by the Cassowary, a big and unique bird that’s found only in this area. There’s plenty of camping grounds, clean and with minimal crowd.
