An easy, three-hour drive, the scenic coastal views more than make up for the quick trip. Ideal for those that want a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. From our branch in Sydney, make a quick stop in Kiama for yummy gelato before driving through quaint coastal villages on your way to Jervis Bay.

2. Perth – Exmouth

Driving from our Perth branch, you will drive through some of the most spectacular beaches in the Australian west coast. Ningaloo Reef is a popular snorkelling spot. While you can see the oldest fossils in the world near Shark Bay. At Exmouth, park your campervan under a star-filled sky amidst majestic sand dunes and desert landscape.

This world-class road trip starts with you picking up your Hippie Camper from our Cairns branch and driving to some of the most spectacular sites in the country. This two-week road trip will take you from the breathtaking Great Barrier Reef as well as World Heritage-listed rain forests and of course, the dramatic expanse of the Great Outback.

4. Victoria Goldfields

This three-day road trip begins from our Melbourne branch and will have you driving through some of the most historic areas in the state. The roads that line the Victoria Goldfields route used to be, quite literally, goldfields which made the region famous during the 1800s. This trip will also take you through charming towns such as Daylesford, Bendigo, Ballarat and more.

5. Brisbane – Cairns

This is one mesmerising coastal drive that you will start after picking up your campervan rental from our Brisbane branch. The six-day journey is a great way to experience the biggest coastal attractions Australia has to offer.

Sun-kissed Byron Bay. The panoramic views of Noosa National Park. The Historic city and southern gateway to the Great Barrier Reef – Bundaberg. We really can’t list all of the great sights in store for you in this drive. The best thing to do is rent a Hippie camper and get the gang together for a much-needed road trip.

They say that life is short, and the best way to make the most of it is set out on the greatest road trip of your life!   Start your journey by visiting our website and booking your own Hippie camper today. We would love to tick places off that bucket list with you.
