Facing the world with just yourself and a backpack is brave, but if you really want to see the world, the best way is by campervan.
We’ve got 5 great reasons why a campervan holiday is just what you need, rather than another flight to Bali or Fiji. Or maybe you need to convince your partner how great an idea it is to take the kids up North this holiday? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
HERE’S WHY BACKPACKING IS OUT, AND CAMPERVAN HOLIDAYS ARE IN.
Backpacks are cool, but do they have wheels? A campervan gives you the freedom of a car, with the convenience of a giant house. It’s your very own home-mobile.
Outside busy spots in peak season, campsite bookings aren’t required, giving you a flexible route taken at your own pace. Let your mood take the wheel, and linger longer than a guide bus would let you.
Wake up to a new view everyday.

Immerse yourself with nature.
Between golden sunrises and fiery sunsets, you don’t get much closer to nature than in a camper. Take in the sights and smells, the stars and campfire, the forests and seas, and reconnect with the natural world.
If you think backpackers are friendly, imagine the camaraderie and mateship of fellow campers. Imagine meeting folks on the road from all walks of life, where everyone is welcome. Strike up a conversation and share travel stories around a campfire, under a beautiful full moon with twinkling stars. Imagine that.
Allow for surprises.
On a campervan road trip, the journey is more than half the fun. Follow your nose and encounter the unexpected – a waterfall walkway or deserted beach, a small-town museum or historic site with interpretive displays. Learn to take it easy, mate, and make room for a little serendipity.
So this holiday break, leave your backpack at home and take the high road with a camper and the NT
