Taking a campervan tour around Australia can be done in different ways. There are fully decked-out campervan, but there are also 4x4s with a small sleeping compartment, so you can go off-road.
Australia is huge, and the most popular way to explore this country is to drive around in a rental car, staying at hotels or camping in different locations.
Even with a normal camper you can go where you want and then camp where you want. Wild camping is not prohibited in Australia, although you must have a permit in the national parks. You can often get these at the entrance of the park.
You often sleep among wild animals such as kangaroos, wallabies (small kangaroos) and countless other strange creatures. Just plan a route and go. But plan well, because the distances are sometimes unprecedented and you don't want to drive 800 kilometers on your last day, I think.
There are 4×4 campervans, which can go off-road and are a bit smaller than regular campervans. One of those is a Toyota LandCruiser 4×4 for example, it’s small and tough and comes with all you need, such as a double bed and a tiny kitchen. One of these is ideal for a tour around Australia, because it gives you the ultimate freedom.
