Where is Adelaide ?

Adelaide, the city of the churches, is located in South Australia. The climate is very warm in the winter with the heat being increased by the warm winds from the deserts in Middle Australia. In the winter the temperatures can drop quite significantly due to the Antarctic winds from the South. 

If you plan your luxury motorhome hire Adelaide for February and March be aware that this will coincide with the Adelaide Festival of Arts, also known as the Adelaide Festival, which is an annual arts festival held in the South Australian capital of Adelaide in March. This will impact the campervan rental Adelaide availablity, so it is best to plan ahead and book your RV Hire Adelaide early to avoid disappointment.

Once you book your Adelaide Motorhome Rental, you have the opportunity to tour the Fleurieu Peninsula, south of Adelaide. If you book your campervan during whale season (July to September each year) you can watch whales and their calves play in the ocean from the shores. Travel 80 km from Adelaide and take in the glorious Victor Harbour where you can visit the South Australian Whale Centre, with interactive sea life displays and hints and tips on whale watching.

Get up close and personal with cuddly koalas or feed the wallabies, kangaroos, emus and other native Australian animals and marsupials when you visit Cleland Conservation Park. This wonderful tourist attraction is less than a 20-minute drive from the city centre on the scenic slopes of Mount Lofty.

At the Deep Creek Conservation Park you can try a variety of experiences. Take advantage of driving your Adelaide RV Hire in the spectacular bushland with kangaroos and other native wildlife or hike one of numerous trails that take in stunning coastal views of Kangaroo Island - all just a 90-minute drive from Adelaide city centre.

Adelaide Zoo is also a major attraction with many animals on display including pandas, lions, tigers, koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and other indigenous species. Adelaide Zoo prides itself in using a science-based approach to animal welfare that focuses on the 5 Domains: Environment, behaviour, nutrition, health and positive mental state.

For those interested in Aboriginal culture a visit to Tandanya - the National Aboriginal Cultural Institute is well worth a visit - Tandanya enjoys a national and international reputation for innovation and excellence in visual arts programming, featuring emerging and established artists from around Australia and overseas

Australian Wine from South Australia - I'll Drink to That!

Australia is now famous all over the world for producing excellent wine – and the Adelaide area has an abundance of wine producing regions of Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and Clare Valley. These areas host some of the finest vineyards in Australia including  Wolf Blass, Penfolds, Peter Lehman, Jacob’ s Creek, Yalumba and many more equally popular brands.

Adelaide Campervan Hire

You can choose to visit the wine regions either in your holiday campervan or pick up one of the many popular tours.  Adelaide is the pivotal place for touring the South Australia wineries. Visit the established wineries, see the vineyards and get to know how the grapes are ripened and transformed into the refreshing wines - it's wicked!. If you ask nicely you can sample the excellent choice of produce, and also purchase specific vintages (perhaps unavailable elsewhere) - but a word of warning - take care not to drink and drive!

Driving Your Campervan in Adelaide

When you tour South Australia, the main roads are perfect for driving your Adelaide RV rental. Apart from the major inter state road network (Adelaide connects to Melbourne in the east to Perth in the West), the main urban network around Adelaide is both modern and easy to understand. In recent years however the road network is beginning to creak a little, due to the number of cars on the road, so make sure you plan your motorhome holidays Australia ahead and give yourself plenty of time to complete your journey.

Stock up on petrol and supplies. The Outback is very remote and you may find yourself driving for hours before coming across any signs of life. Make sure you have plenty of water and food to last the distance.

Take care when driving a campervan in Australia. The speed limit in Australia is 40 – 60 Km per hour within towns, and between 80 and 100 Km per hour on motorways.

Keep an eye out for kangaroos, wallabies, snakes and other wildlife. These creatures may occasionally wander onto the road. Try your very best to avoid a collision, as larger animals such as kangaroos may cause a lot of damage to your vehicle (not to mention give you a fright). However, if a small animal such as a bird comes into your path, try not to swerve sharply or take any risks to evade it – the most important thing is to stay in control of the motorhome. It’s recommended to avoid driving at dawn and dusk. Visibility is low at these times of day, and there tends to be more animals out and about.

RV hire in Adelaide comes in many shapes and sizes, with campervans suiting pretty much all sorts of travellers and budgets. The easiest way to sort through this huge selection is to book with an independent comparison site like Holiday Campervan.

Further advantages of a cheap motorhome hire Adelaide is the opportunity to arrange a one-way rental. This means, if you’d like to explore interstate to Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth or Sydney you can drop your campervan off at your final destination, saving you from doing the same driving twice.

If you fancy a city break, when you tour South Australia, with a few gentle road trips in between? - there’s a camper for you. Or are you prepared for a full-on outback adventure? - there’s one for that, also.

What are the Different Varieties of Camper Vans and Motor Homes Available?

Before you decide which Motorhome Rental Adelaide company to get a quote and book online, you will want to understand the different varieties of campervans, motorhomes and recreational vehicles that will be offered to you to drive as part of the Camper Hire Adelaide deal. Some of the early bird RV rental rates on offer may increase nearer your departure date, so make sure you secure your booking as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Micro Motorhomes or Mini Campers

These tiny motorhomes are often based on small van versions of popular cars or even small people carriers. Most mini campers offer sleeping for two, but many just have just a single berth.

You will also usually find simple cooking facilities and a cupboard to store the smallest portable toilet.


The legendary Volkswagen camper has been popular for more than half a century. There are thousands of camper vans on the road and they are still being built today by the original manufacturer Volkswagen, and a small industry of specialists able to convert or upgrade the vehicle.

Normally they offer comfortable but basic accommodation for two or more happy campers in a family car sized vehicle. They will be equipped with basic cooking facilities, and the addition of an awning can allow for greater head-room, making the campervan more comfortable.

 The benefit of a small micro motorhome and a small campervan is that they can be used to travel into the city and be parked as a normal family car – but be familiar with the minimum roof height when parking in a multi-storey car park with barriers.

Class B Motorhomes - Larger van conversion

Bigger commercial style vans can be converted and are sometimes known as 'panel van' conversions. These larger vans, like a transit van, again can offer more room and are capable of being decked out with a reasonable sized washroom/toilet and a more capable kitchen with gas cooker and dinette and with adequate headroom. They are the least expensive recreational vehicle to operate. The Class B motor home is easy to drive on the motorway, highway and around towns and cities. Because the driving and living compartments are connected, there is no need to get out of the RV during stops and it is capable of reaching less accessible camping sites that are too tight for larger motorhomes.

 Class C Motorhomes

These motor homes use a driver’s cab and chassis from one of the major van manufacturers. A motorhome body is built on to complete the recreational vehicle.

Inside the motorhomes, two or more campers can sleep comfortably, and in most cases are equipped with all the comforts of home including a washroom, a shower and cassette toilet (a removable waste tank on wheels).  Some of the motor homes will be equipped with a fixed double bed and can also make use of the over-cab storage to fix an over-cab bed. Although they are generally easy to drive, like a large moving truck, some of the larger models can be difficult to manoeuvre in tight spaces, and some models of this motor home may be too large to drive around the local town, therefore alternate local public transportation or a car hire may be required.

Class A Motorhome

The Class A motorhome is a recreational vehicle built on a stripped-down truck or lorry chassis where the driving compartment is an integral part of the RV interior, so no separate cab. Class A motorhomes look like a large bus and are well equipped with room inside for double beds and all the luxuries of a home from home.

The American Recreation Vehicle RV

These come with a large interior over the top luxury fittings and fitments. More importantly, many vehicles are dependent on petrol fuel and in the larger RV’s they can be less than fuel efficient and can offer miles per gallon figures in single figures. 

Adelaide Weather and Climate

Adelaide has a Mediterranean climate with warm, sunny weather for most of the year. During the winter months the overnight temperature can drop quite significantly, so be prepared. Rainfall comes mainly in winter. Unlike the east coast cities of Brisbane and Sydney, Adelaide’s skies are cloudier in winter than in summer.
