For some there is no better time of year than when your favourite event or festival rolls around. And what better way to experience it then by getting a group of people together and getting a campervan hire to enjoy the experience in.
Forget about pitching a tent and saying goodbye to the luxuries of home for those few days. A campervan will provide a "home away from home" and will be the perfect vehicle to return to after a long day in the sun, listening to your favourite bands and seeing those much anticipated shows.
An impressive line-up of festivals will grace the east coast of Australia this year, with many of them spanning several days. This makes a campervan rental the perfect accommodation option.
Some of this year's most anticipated events and festivals include:
