One of the most amazing life experiences that you can enjoy when visiting Australia is the Australian East Coast. Australia is a large country with heaps of landscapes that vary based on the region that you visit.
No matter which part of the country you decide to go to, you will admire the beauty that the country has to offer.
The route up or down the Australian East Coast is a really popular one because it can be done relatively quickly and it offers different experiences in different cities.
Additionally, there are several places along the East Coast that are campervan and motorhome friendly, so you will be able to find a base that is safe for you to leave your campervan and belongings, so you can have peace of mind to enjoy the experiences that the Australian East Coast has to offer.
Why consider a campervan hire along the Australian East Coast?
There are a couple of really good benefits.
You can hire from one of the popular international airport hubs.
You can fly into Cairns, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney, and Melbourne and pick-up a campervan or motorhome to start your trip. Most of the campervan hire companies are within a 20-minute journey from the airport and some also offer a pick-up service.
So you can easily arrive, get taken to your campervan or motorhome, and then be on your way to start your Australian East Coast journey within an hour of arriving in your destination.
There’s more flexibility with one-way hires.
This is huge since alot of time is required to drive up or down the Australian East Coast. To give you an idea:
- It will take 11h to drive from Brisbane to Sydney without any breaks.
- It will take 18h to drive from Brisbane to Cairns without any breaks.
The last thing you want to do is to lose time travelling back to the hiring depot to return the vehicle along the same route that you’ve experienced on your travels.
A one-way hire will grant you more time to enjoy the experiences that the East Coast has to offer.
Rental companies will add a surcharge for a one-way hire. However, because the route along the Australian East Coast is popular and there are campervan and motorhome companies that have several bases along the Australian East Coast, the fees will be lower than other non-popular one-way routes.
