Essential info for your Perth motorhome adventure
Western Australia is a vast, sparsely populated, and beautiful place—and its urban hub is Perth, a laidback and lovely city where you can get any motorhome road trip off to a great start. This is the most isolated city of its size on the planet. Perth’s location far from any other metropolis gives it a personality all its own and a fantastic worldly outlook.
Guide to driving in Perth
A safe and incident-free road trip is the best kind of road trip. And whether you’re driving in Australia for the first time or driving a campervan for the first time, it’s important to be prepared. To gain some confidence before you embark on your motorhome rental journey from Perth, take a look at our driving tips and brush up on the road rules of Western Australia.
- In Australia, all traffic drives on the left—and in the vast majority of vehicles, the driver sits on the right. For international visitors this can take some getting used to. We recommend that you set aside some time before your departure to practice and get accustomed to driving on the left.
- The staff at the supplier depot will be your top source of information on your specific vehicle. Pay close attention to the orientation you are given, take notes, ask questions, and don’t hesitate to call or contact the depot with queries or issues while you are on the road.
- When heading into the more remote areas of Western Australia, stock your vehicle with plenty of food and water as well as a method of communication in case you become stranded and must wait for help. Take on fuel whenever you have the opportunity as towns can be few and far between.
- In non-urban areas, be aware of the possibility of animals such as kangaroos on the roads.
- The legal limit for blood alcohol concentration while driving is 0.05% in Western Australia, and this is strictly enforced. We highly recommend that you abstain from drinking alcohol entirely before you hit the road in your Perth motorhome hire.
What to see and do with a camper hire from Perth
You’d be hard-pressed to find a better starting point for an unforgettable road trip than Perth. There are so many spectacular destinations to discover that the only issue will be deciding where to go! Perth lies on the Indian Ocean coast, and many travellers embark on a seaside road trip in either direction. A multitude of possibilities also await inland, where the vastness of Western Australia will leave a lasting impression on intrepid visitors.
To help you put together the perfect Perth motorhome rental itinerary, we’ve collected some destination ideas. Take a look and start your planning!
Margaret River region
Take State Highway 1 south from Perth and turn off at Bunbury to discover Busselton, Margaret River, Augusta, and the wonderful surrounding region. This is wine country and also home to an array of State Forests and National Parks, so there is no end of places to camp. There are surf beaches, jaw-dropping limestone cliffs, sumptuous cellar doors, and myriad trails for walking or mountain biking.
The town called Esperance overlooks a lovely archipelago in the Great Australian Bight, and the area surrounding this beguiling town is packed with equally fantastic views and vistas. Kangaroos commonly lounge on the sands at nearby Lucky Bay, and Lake Hillier behind the town is famous for its puzzling pink hue. Cape Le Grand National Park is a fantastic place to enjoy the sandy beaches and granite outcrops that typify this part of the coast. Esperance is the centre of an other-worldly part of Western Australia, and well worth a place on any road trip list.
Driving north along the coast from Perth to Broome would take a full 24 hours of driving if you did it in one go. We recommend you set aside at least a week to make this memorable journey, because you’ll definitely want to stop and enjoy various spots along this jaw-dropping coastline. Kick it off by visiting the community of Benedictine monks at New Norcia. Spend a day or two at Monkey Mia and Shark Bay, feeding dolphins and taking in the spectacular Hamelin pools. Swim with whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And in Broome, you can enjoy the tropical Aussie vibe of the city while riding a camel on the beach at sunset. What a ride!
For an inland road trip, head east from Perth and drive as far as you wish to explore. The “Golden Outback” is full of exciting and diverse sights, and a trip from Perth to Kalgoorlie and back will allow you to take in a good amount of it: the famous Wave Rock formation, historical gold mining sites, lakes, wildlife, and vast open spaces. If you’re really up for adventure, you may wish to seek a permit from Aboriginal landowners to travel on the Great Central Road all the way to Alice Springs. You may also want to consider a 4WD camper for your outback journey!
How much is it to hire a campervan in Perth?
With a wide range of suppliers and seasonal fluctuations to consider, the prices for motorhome rental in Perth can vary greatly. A basic 2-berth van may go for under AUD$50 a day during quieter travel periods, while a luxury RV hire in Perth could cost AUD$350+ per day.
GoSee’s search engine brings together a range of vehicles at different price points, allowing you to browse the options and find the one that suits your needs and budget.
How old do you have to be to rent a campervan in Perth?
In most cases, you must be 21 or older to rent a motorhome. Some suppliers will rent to those aged 18 plus but may charge extra for this.
How to find the nearest petrol in and around Perth?
Perth is a sizable city with plenty of petrol stations! You may wish to ask your rental company to tell you the location of the closest one, so you can fill up the vehicle before returning it.
What type of fuel does a campervan need?
RVs and campervans will use either petrol or diesel, and you should double check when you pick up your vehicle which one it takes. Filling up with the wrong fuel can be a time-consuming and costly mistake!
Some renters will have a preference for either petrol or diesel. You can choose to filter your results to include either type exclusively with the GoSee search function.
Can I rent a campervan one way from Perth?
Yes, most campervan hire suppliers allow one-way rentals. You can specify a different drop-off location when searching. Double-check the details when you confirm your booking and be aware that some companies will charge a one-way fee.
How long does it take to drive a campervan from Perth to Adelaide?
The trip from Perth to Adelaide can take a total of anywhere from 28 to 35 hours of driving, depending on whether you stick closely to the coast or opt for some inland shortcuts. We recommend that you take at least five days to make the trip—more if you’d like to truly enjoy all that there is to see and do along the way!
Do I need a special driver’s licence to drive in Australia?
You can drive a campervan in Australia with your full, valid licence (no heavy vehicle ratings) from your home country. If the licence is not written in English, you will also need an accredited translation or an International Driving Permit.
How are the rental (hire) days charged?
Most suppliers charge on the basis of calendar days. This means that the day you pick up and the day you drop off will both be counted as rental days.
Some campervan rental companies in Perth have a minimum rental period. This means that you need to pay for the specified minimum number of days even if you’d only like to hire it for an overnight camp.
Do I have to return my campervan with a full tank?
Yes, you will be required to return your camper with a full tank of fuel. If you do not, there will be added refuelling charges.
Do you allow pets?
Some of our rental partners allow you to take pets while others do not. You can filter for pet-friendly rentals with the GoSee search function—just tick the “Pet Friendly” box to the left of the results page.
