Staying for a few days? There are over 15 caravan parks, campgrounds and tourist parks in and around the Sydney area.
If you have lots of time in this beaut (a little Aussie slang) country, we recommend an exciting east coast itinerary that takes you to Cairns, or Brisbane. Or head the other direction and explore the wonders of the south on your way through Melbourne and onto Adelaide.
Chop and change them as you see fit to make the most of your Australian campervan holiday.

If you decide to stay fairly local, make sure you hit these key attractions:

Blue Mountains National Park

Climb to the park’s spectacular lookouts over blues forests and crazy rock formations like the Three Sisters, an Aboriginal cultural site. Stop for a picnic near Wentworth Falls or dive into the park’s adventure activities like rock climbing, mountain biking and canyoning. Want a bird’s-eye view? Take a ride in the Cableway and Skyway gondolas. With its close proximity to Sydney, the Blue Mountains National Park is definitely worth a visit.

Jenolan Caves

Located in the foothills of the Blue Mountains are the Jenolan Caves. Discover underground grottos and rivers while on tour of Australia’s largest cave system.

Hunter Valley

Sip Australian wine in Hunter Valley or the town of Orange, both only a few hours outside Sydney. Or follow the coast north for approximately six hours to Dorrigo National Park, a World Heritage site full of waterfalls and lovely strolls through NSW’s flora and fauna.

If you decide to hire a campervan outside of Sydney proper, check out motorhome rentals in Newcastle for a relatively close alternative. You may also rent a campervan in Canberra to see this wonderful city or begin a motorhome adventure in Devonport Tasmania.

When to head to Sydney for a campervan hire holiday

Australia is famous for its all-year-round pleasant weather so you can’t really go wrong no matter when you come. In general, Sydney enjoys a temperate climate of warm summers and mild winters. Here’s what to expect for the different times of year:

  • Book your Sydney motorhome hire in the summer months (December to February) for hot summer days when the sun shines for over 12 hours. Fair warning, this is also Sydney’s busy tourist season. Make sure to book your Motorhome Republic campervan rentals in advance.

  • June to August is Australia’s mild winter season, also its rainiest. Traveling with your campervans hire during the ‘off season’ means fewer crowds on Royal Botanic Gardens and holiday parks, less tourists, and better deals for renting a Sydney motorhome.

  • Autumn and spring months in New South Wales are also great for avoiding peak season to enjoy your RV rental Sydney trip. Mild temperatures with less people on the road, makes it easy for planning on the go and not quite as hot, hot, hot as summer.

Travel Tips for Campervan Rental Sydney Holiday

  • Book your RV ahead of time for the best camper van hire Sydney deals.

  • Make sure to get plenty of rest, switch drivers often, or pullover for naps if you’re feeling sleepy.

  • Choose to visit during the off-season to save money and avoid crowded destinations during your motorhome hire Sydney trip.

  • Always book insurance with your Sydney camper rental.

  • Drive cautiously outside of cities as wildlife on the roads can be a hazard after dark.
