Motorhome Rental Brisbane Australia
So you’ve decided this year that you want to hit the road with the family, get back to nature and escape on a self drive motorhome holiday adventure to Australia.
A Motorhome Rental Brisbane Australia reservation is the ideal family holiday, and in particular the districts of Queensland, Brisbane, Cairns and the Gold Coast.
The benefits of booking the best Brisbane campervan rental is that you can travel at your own pace around the Queensland coastline. Stopping at the next convenient overnight camping park. Wearing your wide-brimmed akubra hat with corks to avoid the flies while firing up the barbie to roast the chooks or yabbies, all washed down with a beer stubby.
With the tropical rain forest at Daintree Forest, the endless miles of surfing beaches along the Sunshine and the Gold Coast and the world famous coral reefs found at the Great Barrier Reef, try catching the ferry to Fraser Island with the wild dingoes - Queensland is the place to be. Brisbane is a great location to start and end your Queensland Australian experience.
Where to Park Your Campervan Hire Brisbane
If you are thinking of a Brisbane RV Hire as part of your holiday in Australia you will want to know the best camping locations to park your campervan overnight.
At Holiday Campervan we can suggest the Brisbane Holiday Village, which is located around 30 minutes’ drive from Brisbane and close to Westfield shopping at Chermside. It has large powered sites available, and motorhome visitors are welcome to use the Village’s amenities (including ladies and gents showers and toilets), coin operated barbecues and a coin operated laundry. Camper van visitors can also use the resort's leisure facilities – the swimming pool, an 18-hole mini golf (small fee applicable), tennis courts and a children’s playground area. Other campsites are also available and details of free camping in Australia – yes that’s correct! – free camping, can be found at here.
The Australian Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast are amazing and there is a great park at Burleigh Heads, which is about 89km from Brisbane, on the Pacific Highway. When you are there you may want to take a tour into the Hinterland, natural Bridge at Springbrook and maybe on to Mt. Tamborine and back to Brisbane via Toowooba on highway A2 for 191 km.
When you travel into downtown Brisbane it is recommended that you secure and leave your camper van at the campsite and travel by public transport into Brisbane city centre, to avoid car parking difficulties.

What are the Different Varieties of Camper Vans and Motor Homes Available?
Before you decide which motorhome rental 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 Campervans Brisbane 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 awnings can allow for additional 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 Motorhome - 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 fitted with a reasonable sized washroom/toilet and a more capable kitchen 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 campsites that are too tight for larger motorhomes.
Class C Motorhome
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 town, therefore alternate local public transportation may be required.
Class A Motorhomes
The Class A motor home 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 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.
Driving a Campervan in Brisbane for the First Time
If you have never driven a campervan before it’s only natural to feel a wee bit nervous. After all you are probably moving from the equivalent of rowing a boat to maneuvering an oil tanker!
The main thing is not to be overawed. Take your time to get a feel for the cabin and the motorhome controls. Make sure that your driving seat is adjusted to the correct height and distance from the steering wheel. Get to understand how to start the engine and more importantly how to stop!
Ensure you understand all the manual gears (unless automatic), know how to move into reverse, and how easy the clutch is to depress.
Adjust your wing mirrors, making sure that you can see the full length of the campervan. Watch out for people overtaking when you least expect it – remember slow moving caravans and motorhomes can be frustrating to other impatient drivers following behind.
Get to know your height restriction (very important when travelling on roads with overhanging trees or bridges).
Make sure you know the speed limits in Australia, and the states you are travelling through.
When you arrive at your campsite, reverse park, to ensure your eventual departure is made easier.
Just remember that your “oil tanker” is a lot longer than your usual “rowing boat” so make sure that you give yourself plenty of space to turn at every road junction.
If in doubt, just ask the motorhome rental agent, who will be happy to take you over all the features of the campervan.
The climate in Brisbane
Brisbane has a subtropical climate with warm or hot weather for most of the year. The climate in Brisbane is very sunny, with approximately 2,800 hours of sunshine per year. Most of the rainfall is in summer from June to August. This can be in the form of rather awe inspiring thunderstorms with torrential rain. Every now and then, a tropical cyclone can reach the city, although this rarely happens because cyclones usually pass over further north. Occasionally, these cyclones can pass over the ocean at some distance from the coast, causing storm surges onshore.
