Australia offers some beautiful sights and natural beauty. One of the best ways to explore this is by travelling via road instead of taking a flight or train to different destinations. Road trips allow you to stop wherever you need, explore a space to your heart’s content without having to worry about schedules; They also give you the option to modify your plans at the last minute if you discover something new. No other type of transport offers this level of flexibility, which is why road trips have become increasingly popular in the recent years. At Awesome Campers, we recommend using a camper van instead of a regular vehicle for this purpose because:
Many people hesitate to hire camper vans because they worry about the costs involved and think hiring a car is more economical. However, they’re not taking the whole cost into consideration and omit including the expenses of eating at restaurants or cafés and sleeping in hotel/motel rooms. These will certainly add to the cost of your trip, which can be avoided if you have a camper van.
A Campervan can be your hotel room, restaurant, and provide shelter at the same time. There’s no need to spend money on anything else, especially if you have all the supplies you need in the van. You can cook healthy and safe meals in the camper van kitchen or set up a BBQ outside it at the right spot. Few other modes of transportation provide this level of independence, affordability, and comfort at the same time, which is why many experienced travellers recommend using a camper van when travelling across Australia.
Travelling over a long distance can be stressful for any vehicle, especially regular cars. These are designed for daily commutes and relatively short distance travel. When you push them to run for thousands of kilometres in hot weather, they can falter and develop problems. That’s why camper vans are a much better alternative. They are designed for long-distance travel and can complete the entire trip without developing any problems.
At Awesome Campers, we have a fleet of well-maintained vehicles. They are always in good shape and ready for long-distance trips in different weather conditions. Our fleet is serviced regularly, has many modern enhancements to ensure the ride is smooth; the vans have large fuel tanks so you don’t need to refuel as frequently. This ensures your trip is relatively stress-free so you only need to worry about directions or destinations. The camper van will reliably take you to any destination without compromising the quality of the driving experience.
Many travellers want to backpack and explore different destinations on foot. This can be a thrilling experience, allowing you to explore the land and connect with it organically. There’s nothing quite like touching the earth, gazing up at a monument, or exploring woodlands on foot. But the human body needs rest and shelter and not everyone is willing to rough it out in the wild by living in a tent. The alternative is to find a hotel or hire a camper van, and the latter is more convenient.
You can park your Awesome Campers van at a good location, explore surrounding areas on foot, before coming back to it for food and rest. This is a very comfortable and safe way to conduct a backpacking trip and it doesn’t even require much planning or expense. You get the best of both worlds; the freedom to explore on foot and a safe place to rest after you’re done exploring. That’s one of the reasons why camper vans are so popular with experienced backpackers and adventurers.
One of the biggest advantages of travelling in camper vans is the parks scattered across different locations in Australia. You can reserve a parking space for camper vans in these parks at an affordable price. Many have their own laundry facilities, bathrooms, toilets, electricity supply, and other such conveniences. You book a space and rest for a couple of days in this location, especially if you need a break from regular driving.
Social interaction is also a big benefit of camper van parks as you can meet several fellow travellers here. There’s something very personal and casual about meeting fellow travellers in camper van parks. In hotels and similar accommodations, people remain indifferent and don’t interact, but in parks, travellers communicate and share experiences. It’s not uncommon to form bonfire parties, BBQs, and play games in campervan parks. These establishments are often located at prime water-front spaces, which adds to the overall experience. If you’re looking for a place to rest that doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket, consider booking a spot in the closest park.
Most campervans have a comfortable bed, a small kitchen, and some entertainment options. They can accommodate two passengers comfortably, so you don’t feel boxed in. We provide clean linens and even a dining table so travellers can enjoy food and rest during their long drivers. These vans aren’t too big so it’s easy to find a parking spot anywhere you like and explore the surroundings.
Vans are air-conditioned and some models have refrigerators to store food. We provide portable chairs so you can sit outside when the vehicle is parked. All vans have a radio/CD player along with AUX connection so you can play music or audio books during your trip easily. Most of our vans also have outlets to charge your electronics if needed so there’s no risk of running out of laptop or phone battery.
Campervans provide great freedom of movement and allow you to stay on the road for extended periods of time. If you want to fully explore Australia’s beauty, this is a great option.
