Melbourne Motorhome Rental
Campervan Hire & RV Rentals in Melbourne, Victoria
Melbourne, known as the “cultural capital of Australia”, is the capital city of the southern Australia state of Victoria. You can compare and book your rental motorhomes or hire campervans online before you travel; and then pick up the keys from your Melbourne motorhome rental, campervan hire and recreational vehicle (RV) rentals branch. You may plan to spend days or even weeks exploring the diverse, modern, artistically alive city; or get straight out on the road. There are holiday parks and caravan and camping sites that will accept rental motorhomes, hire campervans and rental recreational vehicles; with truly amazing locations and facilities throughout Victoria and Australia beyond.
The Great Ocean Road in your hire campervan
The cliff-hugging Great Ocean Road itself is not long in distance and can be driven as a day trip from Melbourne city; but to truly see all that this spectacular stretch of coastline has to offer, plan to take your time. Your first stop can be the Otway Ranges with their beautiful waterfalls. Along the Great Ocean route you will pass through pretty coastal towns such as Lorne, Warrnambool, Torquay, Robe and Port Fairy. Pull your campervan hire off the road in Portland to visit Mount Gambier and the Blue Lake.
Highlights of the Great Ocean Road, in no particular order, include Bells, Sellicks and Shelly Beaches and countless other amazing swimming and surfing spots on Victoria’s Surf Coast; Apollo Bay, where you can visit glow-worm caves and the Great Otway National Park; the Twelve Apostles rock formation rising out of the Southern Ocean; Naracoorte Caves National Park near Coonawarra, and on to Horseshoe Bay, Victor Harbour and finally Fleurieu Peninsula. You can spend as much or as little time as you wish exploring scenery and wildlife this diverse and rich landscape in your motorhome rental.
A Tour of Wine Country by Motorhome Rental
From North-east, Central and Western Victoria, there are hundreds of vineyards and wineries that are within reach by your hired campervan or motorhome. Just an hour from Melbourne, drive your campervan to the Cope Williams Winery, Mount Macedone Winery and Cobaw Ridge for a taste of their local wines and enjoy a picnic under endless blue skies. The scenic Mornington Peninsula boasts of exquisite Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; while Milawa in the King Valley wine region has berries, nuts and cheese to go with their wine. There are parks for camping in your motorhome rental and maybe enjoying dampers or toasting marshmallows over a fire. There is nothing like waking up and opening the door of your motorhome; to see endless vineyards as far as the eye can see.
The Yarra Valley wine region is a must-visit for wine-lovers; because it is the pioneer when it comes to the country’s wine industry and has awards to prove it. Wineries here pride themselves for the best Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Sparkling wines in the country. Many camping spots are available for campers to park your Melbourne motorhome rental or recreational vehicle for an overnight stop.
Longer road trips by motorhome rental through Australia
You may choose to return to Melbourne and head east in your campervan rental towards Sydney and the Gold Coast or continue west to Adelaide city. From Adelaide it is possible to explore the state of South Australia, famous for its wines; or head north through the Flinders Ranges National Park to Central Australia: Coober Pedy, Alice Springs and the famous Ayers Rock at Uluru National Park. Those with a truly adventurous spirit may decide to undertake a drive through the extreme outback of Western Australia, though this drive is not to be taken lightly and requires careful planning for your crossing of the Nullarbor Plains. “Nullarbor” means “No Trees” in latin.
