4WD road-tripping is the best way of getting off the beaten track and exploring the hidden beauty of the Australian country. With a 4WD camper, you can do it all in comfort while experiencing nature closely and enjoying countless unique experiences. Below are some of the best places to go to escape the crowd and have a true adventure in the Australian wilderness.
The Kimberley, WA
Western Australia is definitely the best place for off-road adventures in Australia. It’s packed with unbelievable natural attractions, including many that can only be accessed using a 4WD vehicle. The Kimberley region is one such place and offers a level of beauty that can’t be explained. Covering over 423,517 square kilometres, the Kimberley region is an ideal choice for those looking to spend time in complete tranquillity. Some key attractions include:
Windjana Gorge National Park
Home Valley Station
Drysdale River Station
To enhance your understanding of this region, try to make the most out of the guided Aboriginal tours. The truly diverse landforms of these areas make it a unique choice for 4WD motorhome travellers.
Sunshine Coast Hinterland, QLD
Queensland is another great place for 4WD road trips. It’s a state that’s famous for its lush green forests, lakes, waterholes, stunning beaches and delicious food. The Sunshine Coast offers some of the best 4WD tracks, great for everything from unique, captivating camping, surfing and fishing spots and fun road tripping. Located only 80km from Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast is an easy way to escape the crowds, with beautiful attractions such as Bribie Island, Fraser Island, Kalpowar State Forest, Great Sandy National Park and the Glasshouse Mountains.
Eyre Peninsula, SA
The Eyre Peninsula is one of Australia’s best kept secrets when it comes to beach holidays, featuring some of the country’s most dramatic coastline along with the best seafood in the country and almost no tourists. While exploring the area in your 4WD camper, you can enjoy camping with water views on either side of Port Lincoln in both Lincoln and Coffin Bay national parks and again on the outskirts of Ceduna at Wittlebee Conservation Park. Enjoy days filled with exploring coastal walking trails, four-wheel driving across sand dunes and feasting on freshly shucked Coffin Bay oysters.
Arnhem Land, NT
Eastern Arnhem Land is a two-day drive from Katherine that can only be done with a 4WD. You’ll need to organise two permits online before you go but it’s worth it to experience some of the best beachfront camping anywhere in Australia. The area is largely free of crowds, fishing is legendary and the Yolngu art centre at Yirrkala is a great place to visit. Spending time in Arnhem Land is a deep immersion into our indigenous culture that isn’t available anywhere else in Australia.
The Grampians, VIC
The Grampians is well known but there’s plenty to explore beyond big-ticket attractions like Mackenzie Falls. The road between Dunkeld and Halls Gap (65km through the middle of the Grampians National Park) is one of most scenic mountain drives on sealed roads in Australia. Halls Gap features some amazing bushwalks, including the five-hour loop from Halls Gap around the spectacular Pinnacle Lookout, past the high-walled Grand Canyon and the Venus Bath Rock Pools.
