Aussie highlights for an unforgettable campervan road trip
Australian culture is just as fun and welcoming as we’ve heard! And there is no better way to experience Australia than on a road trip with your own campervan or motorhome (which by the way, you can book on Campstar.com at the best prices). The Gold Coast is a spectacular region with epic sceneries to explore. Many of the campervan routes are just amazing – almost like if they were meant to be for road trips – so whichever path your gut leads you to, it will turn out to be crazy beautiful in Australia.
Who could resist crystal-clear water beaches, world heritage locations, awesome amusement parks and the aussie surfer lifestyle all together? Exactly, pretty much no one. So, we might as well warn you now that the Gold Coast route for a roadtrip in Australia is super popular among international visitors and local tourists, as it is the iconic camping road trip in the country.
The Queensland coastline has impressive beaches that give travellers a thrilling and breathtaking experience. This campervan route will expose you to stunning sights and fun skydiving activities (very common in the area). So read on, mate! To discover with us what this once-in-a-lifetime trip in this ‘awesome as’ country has waiting for you!
Exploring ‘The Lucky Country’ behind the wheel
A motorhome road trip gives you the freedom to go and stop anywhere you want at any given time, which is very convenient if you’d like to take a closer look at the Australian wildlife throughout the Gold Coast. Koalas and Kangaroos? Yes! You can spot them all in the Australian landscapes during your campervan road trip.
The ‘Lucky country’ is also full of amazing people that will be eager to talk to you and share their culture along the way. Australia has an appropriate infrastructure making camping road trips a memorable experience. There are rest stops all over, barbecue stands (Aussies love their ‘barbies’), and petrol stations have hot showers installed.
On the Gold Coast you can also find voluntary stations by locals. True blues – real australians- provide coffee and tea to long-distance travellers on this route and they’re happy to have a good ‘yarn’ (chat) with them before they embark on their voyage yet again.
Super ‘Sick’ highlights for your Gold Coast journey
Gold Coast Hinterland
It is a beautiful national park with charming mountain villages. You can do a three-day walk in Hinterland to the Gondwana Rainforest which is a listed World –Heritage site. The campervan route also traverses through an ancient volcano which gives campers the perfect landscape for one of Australia’s ultimate photo spots.
Cycling is also available in Hinterland for bike lovers. You can trail through the scenic routes and paths of Mount Tamborine, where you will also have the opportunity to see the gorgeous waterfalls at Springbrook via an Eco Safari tour if you’d like.
Prominent Gold Coast Beaches
Your Australia road trip would, of course, not be complete without enjoying the white sandy beaches of the Gold Coast. The 57 km long stretch of beaches along this route is definitely ist main attraction. There are lots of fun activities to do, like surfing, diving, and snorkeling. You can even get private surfing lessons if you are interested to learn how to get the real aussie experience.
Adrenaline rush in Theme Parks
For adrenaline junkies, another reason to embark on this route down the Gold Coast is the opportunity to experience world-class theme parks, where extreme waterslides are available such as Tornado and Kamikaze. The Warner Bros Movie World is ideal for families, since it has ‘heaps’ (like the aussies would say) of kid attractions and they even get the chance to meet popular cartoon characters. What’s more, Dreamworld theme park has super cool attractions like The Giant Drop and Tower of Terror.
The best way to explore the Gold Coast in detail is definitely via a camping road trip. You can find specific places to camp in our website Campstar.com and visit all these emblematic places on your Road trip Australia.
