Brisbane really is a unique city. No where in the world could be as perfectly situated as a holiday destination, with the Gold Coast to the south, the Sunshine Coast to the north and beautiful rolling countryside to the west. And lets not forget Brisbane itself - the country town that grew into a city is modern and cosmopolitan with a host of activities to keep todays traveller entertained.
So after picking up your camper van hire hang around the city for a while and experience the style and culture of Australia's third largest city. The inimitable South Bank has an artificial beach where you can sun yourself whilst taking in the city views, and there are a host of nearby bars and restaurants to refuel at. There are a number of art galleries and performing centres here, and on the weekends there are craft markets and free performances around the parklands. For unique city views take a drive up Mt. Coot-tha and watch the sunset over the city below you. The panoramic views are complemented by the lush vegetation of the Botanical Gardens, where in the daytime you can take an informative guided walk through its tropical flora.

If the bright lights become too much for you, hop into your campervan and head north for two hours to the Sunshine Coast. Secluded beaches and thick, lush trees provide the perfect hideaway for you to relax and wind down. Numerous campsites mean that driving holidays are well catered for, so take your pick of the small suburban coastal towns up the Sunshine Coast and settle down for a couple of days. Noosa and Mooloolaba are hot favourites, but make the most of the freedom that your hire camper gives you and do some exploring of other spots.
Another alternative is to head south from Brissie and take in the sights and sounds of the Gold Coast. Its lush hinterland and stunning surf beaches have made this an internationally renowned destination with many tourists flocking to Surfers Paradise, where the city literally merges with the beach. Burleigh Heads is another favourite for swimmers and surfers, as is Coolangatta, which is half an hour south of Surfers.
