A Guide to Campervan Holidays in Queensland, Australia

Queensland, Australia, is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world. The reason for this is simple – there is so much to see and do. The best part is that it doesn’t even matter what type of person you are. For example, if you’re the type of person who likes to lie on the beach and read a book, then Queensland is for you. If you’re the type of person who enjoys wildlife tours or whale watching, then Queensland is for you. If you’re travelling with family, and you’re looking to visit unique theme parks, then Queensland is for all of you.

Regardless of your reason for travelling to Queensland, you’re going to have a difficult decision to make in regards to accommodations. You can look into Australianapartments or rent a campervan. It’s best to choose the former if you know you’re going to stay in one spot and visit all local attractions. If you’re more of an explorer or adventurer, then you need to strongly consider renting a campervan.


Campervans aren’t big and clunky like American RVs. Campervans, on the other hand, are not too big or too small. They’re affordable, comfortable and convenient. In regards to affordability, you can rent a campervan for as low as $30 per day if you only require a campervan that will be comfortable for two people. If you’re travelling with a family, you can still get away with as low as $48 per day. More importantly, when you’re in a campervan, you can experience all the scenic overlooks, parks, beaches and natural beauty Queensland has to offer.


Now let’s get to the good stuff, which is where to go when you choose a campervan holiday in Queensland. We’ll focus on more off-the-beaten path locations and attractions, but before we do, we should at least mention the basic attractions. These include beaches, wildlife tours, cultural exhibitions, art galleries, boutique shops, spas, theme parks, whale-watching cruises and the outback. Some of these themes will be covered more specifically below.

If you’re a true adventurer, you need to take advantage of the amphibious crafts that cross deserted beaches. These amphibious crafts will also visit estuaries, as well as the Bustard Head Lighthouse. For a more water-based adventure, as well as romance, go on a guided kayak tour during sunset. If you’re travelling with a significant other, then this will surely be a tour to remember for a lifetime.


Sticking with the water theme, consider going sailing around the Whitsuny Islands. This is a great experience, especially if you have a great guide, which is likely. If you want to witness a natural wonder, visit 75-Mile Beach on Fraser Island. One of the most underappreciated attractions in Queensland is Aloomba Lavender. Here you will find 4,000 acres, cattle and rolling hills. It doesn’t get more beautiful, regardless of what country you’re in. A few peaceful Queensland attractions to consider include Alpha Native Flower Garden, Anzac Square War Memorial and Apex Park And Lookout.


If you want to visit theme parks, begin at Aussie Waterballs, which is one of the coolest and strangest things you will ever see in your life. For more traditional entertainment, go to Aussie World, which is home to a Ferris wheel, slides, games and more. Bellingham Maze is a lot of fun. It’s for all ages, and it features mazes, brain-teasing puzzles and some unexpected surprises. If you have a need for speed, visit Big Kart Track.


In order to see all of this, or at least most of it, you’re going to need a campervan. If you’re only going to choose one, two or three attractions that are all within close proximity to one another, and you’re travelling with family, then consider Queensland villas instead.
