Motorhome Rental in Broome, Western Australia
RV Rental and Campervan Hire from Broome WA
Broome is a pearling town located on the coast in the northern part of Western Australia, between the Kimberley and the Great Sandy Desert. Despite its remoteness, Broome has increasingly become a must-see in intrepid adventurers’ bucket list. Western Australia alone covers 2.5 million square kilometres and accounts for one third of Australia’s land mass so the distances between attractions and cities of significant size are huge. Broome itself lies 1,400 miles north of Perth, the capital of Western Australia. It is for this reason, and the convenience that campervans bring, that many visitors prefer to explore the region by motorhome rental in Broome. Whilst in Broome, take advantage of the beautiful white sands and sunsets you can all have in the 14-mile long Cable Beach for which Broome is famous.
Bungle Bungles, Purnululu and Mirima National Parks
It is in Western Australia that you will truly come to appreciate the value of your 4WD campervan rental in Broome. From Broome, driving east towards Darwin or Alice Springs in your 4x4 Broome campervan hire on the Great Northern Highway will take you to Purnululu National Park, home to the UNESCO-listed beehive-shaped towers of Bungle Bungle Range estimated to be 350 million years old. Purnululu is about 400 miles away by RV rental in Broome.
Continuing north on the highway with your Broome motorhome hire and come to the relatively young outback town of Kununurra, a local name referring to a lake of the same name considered to be the largest manmade lake in the southern hemisphere. The lake is large enough to be known as an inland sea and unsurprisingly, is a mecca for cruising, canoeing, fishing and all other types of water sports.
Whilst in Kununurra visit Mirima National Park, also known as the Hidden Valley National Park, with its 600-million-year old Zebra Rock. In this park, Kelly’s Knob Lookout is known as the ideal place to witness sunsets and the Black Rock Falls a popular swimming hole.
Drive from Broome and Swim in the Ningaloo Reef
If you are willing to drive your Broome motorhome rental for 850 miles, travelling south on the Great Northern Highway and then turning your campervan hire in Broome onto the North West Coastal highway, you will be rewarded with the experience of Australia's largest fringing reef and coral gardens. At Exmouth, you can swim in the clearest turquoise waters on the planet and find yourself floating over the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef. Here, you can spot dolphins, manta rays, humpback whales, turtles and whale sharks with predictable regularity.
Karijini National Park by 4WD Campervan
On the way to Ningaloo, about 11 hours inland by motorhome hire from Broome is Karijini National Park which is inhabited by some of the planet's oldest rocks: At an age of four billion years, some of the rocks are as old as the planet. These rocks form cavernous gorges and Mount Bruce, Australia’s second highest peak. Although the park is renowned for having some of the best scenery accessible by road, for the more adventurous traveller in a 4WD camper hire in Broome, a guided tour of the Weano Gorge where you can jump down waterfalls and climb back up from the depths, will give any adventurer a feeling of travelling to the centre of the earth.
From Karijini, it is possible to join back up with the Great Northern Highway to return your RV rental in Broome, or head south to Perth via the Pinnacles.
