Winter Camping – Where To Go?
Many of Australia’s best camping destinations have swelteringly hot summers – so get out and see it all during winter! You’ll not only have more comfortable weather (plus less sweaty washing to do), but you’ll have more space to appreciate your destination when travelling outside of peak holiday seasons.
Central Australia is best explored during winter. While the winter nights are cold, during summer the temperatures are scorching so it’s worth the trade off. From Alice Springs you can head out to Uluru, one of Australia’s most iconic sights. Or start from Darwin to explore Australia’s largest National Park, Kakadu.
You can still enjoy the beach during winter if you head to the right places. North Queensland has mild winters with less rain than the hot and humid summer. The winter off-peak season is a fantastic time of year to visit the Great Barrier Reef – the water will still be plenty warm enough to swim in but you won’t be fighting the crowds for snorkelling space. Convenient campervan hire for exploring North Queensland is available from Cairns, Townsville, and Airlie Beach depots.
Don’t let the weather stop you from taking a campervan adventure through Australia’s most beautiful regions!
