Just south of Wollongong lies Kiama and the famous blowhole. Jervis Bay and it’s sparkling white sand is located just over 3 hours South of Sydney and is home to some beautiful natural features that should surely be appreciated on any road trip to Melbourne. Narooma and Mallacoota are located just a little further South of the bay. These two towns are home to some great wildlife like fur seals and little penguins. Tilba Tilba should be seen for its food on the way to Wilsons Promotory – the great southern tip of Australia. From there, Phillip Island is a great day trip destination full of snorkeling and marine life. The Mornington Peninsula will be your last destination before arriving at Melbourne. It’s fur seal colony and military ruins can be explored before your final night’s sleep in your campervan or motorhome. The entire trip should take about 8 days if driving, given one night spent at each of the towns aforementioned.

Sydney to Brisbane

Driving in the opposite direction to that described in the last paragraph will set you asunder on a road trip to remember. On the way North to Brisbane, you should certainly check out the port and sand dunes located at Newcastle and Port Stephens, respectively. Following on, the dolphins at Forster would add a desirable element to any road trip along with observation of one or more of the areas many beaches. Next, Port Macquarie offers a koala hospital experience of the highest quality.

RV Owners 7 Times More Likely To Take A Campervan Holiday Australia

Lucky you, oh, insightful campervan owner, oh, intrepid traveller! Tourism Research Australia has recently released a report stating that campervanners are more than seven times more likely to take a campervan holiday in Australia in the next three months than the rest of Australians.

Only 12% of the Australian population have plans to book a holiday in the next three months. Over 500,000 campervanners have indicated they are willing to take a road trip within two months.

This blessed segment of the Australian population promises to boost regional tourism, with regional tourism having slumped since the outbreak of Coronavirus.

The number of potential travellers looking to show the family a good time is huge. It would bring a significant boost to the NSW regional economy, with over $282 million expected to pour into the coffers of regional tourism operators, if this prediction manifests.

As Government restrictions start to ease off, many regional communities will be cheering as tourism opens up again. Most small towns in Australia rely on some form of tourism to remain productive and to employ local residents. There are over 711,000 RVs on the road and thousands of open-air campervan sites available across the state. The end of Coronavirus lockdown promises great things for regional towns.

According to the Campervan Industry of Australia, most holiday parks and camping grounds have implemented COVID-19-safe guidelines. Contact tracing, social distancing and increased hygiene facilities in common areas are maintaining the safety of patrons at campervan parks.

Taking a campervan or motorhome holiday can be a great way to get away from the stress and mess of city living. A campervan holiday is by far the best way to see the beautiful countryside of New South Wales, with plenty of coastal and inland spots available to peruse and almost every town in the state will have facilities to accommodate campervans and RVs.

Powered sites are common, allowing for a taste of modern luxury without the hefty hotel price. Cooking outdoors under the stars is a wonderful way to bring the family closer together plus a fantastic opportunity to enjoy great cuisine perhaps not often cooked at home.

Witness nature at its finest: birds, whales and kangaroos are everywhere if you know where to look. Do some research or head to the nearest tourism centre in the town you’re staying at. They’ll be able to provide more information about what to do and see at your destination.

If the kids are coming, you should bring along some fun activities to do on the road so that everyone is on their best behaviour. However, for the most part, you can rely on mother nature to present a bountiful offering with your crew amused and engaged for the duration of your holiday.

If you haven’t already purchased a campervan, you are in the right place to do so at Sydney Campervans and Campers, where we have handpicked the best range of pre-loved RVs from across the country for you to fulfill your travel dreams.

We have customers from across the country travel far and wide who wish to buy from or sell to us, rather than a big supermarket style yard dealer for the quality of care we give to our vehicles and customers. (See our customer testimonials for more.)

Contact the experts at Sydney Campervans and Campers today for a friendly chat about currently available campervans and motorhomes, or those that are arriving soon. We’ll provide you with a vehicle and residence all-in-one for an affordable price.

Although who can put a price on living your dreams?

Travel To Sydney’s Whitest Sand

Jervis Bay is a stellar destination for any camping trip. The area offers many facilities designed to improve the quality of your weekend holiday such as hot water, gas barbecues and powered sites, and the local flora and beaches are absolutely amazing. Indeed, Jervis Bay’s claim of being home to the world’s whitest sand at Hyams Beach draws crowds of thousands each Summer season from Sydney, Wollongong and elsewhere across the state of New South Wales. The following post highlights some of the area’s many activities.

Hiking and Bushwalking

One of the more convenient features of Jervis Bay installed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service is the area’s trailheads. These are all at or near beaches, meaning an afternoon hike is within easy grasp of any travelers to the area following a morning swim. The ruined Cape St George Lighthouse, for example, is within easy walking distance of Hyams Beach and displays a proud snapshot of life in the 1800s when fishing and whaling boats were reliant on the lighthouse for safety amongst the bay’s rocks.  Trails throughout the rest of Booderee National Park offer a wonderful way to engage with nature up close and personal, with trails varying from overnight trails to simple afternoon treks.

Neighboring Beaches

The neighboring Cave Beach is often patronized by wallabies so confident around humans they’ll come up and ask you for food! Wake up each morning to the sound of Cockatoos and Kookaburras caterwauling from the trees and spend the day swimming in the crystal-clear blue water at your leisure. Murrays Beach offers some fantastic snorkeling opportunities at its shores and is close-by to Bowen Island which is a breeding ground for a colony of Little Penguins. As a conservation area, Bowen Island is unapproachable but can be heard at dusk as Little Penguins stir up a kerfuffle on their way home.

Drinking, Dining and Shopping

The Jervis Bay/Hyams Beach area is home to a vast variety of fresh seafood, caught nearby and lovingly prepared in the area’s local kitchens. One more-noteworthy establishment is the Huskisson Hotel. Built in 1932, the local pub offers entertainment on Friday and Saturday night and has an emphasis on delicious, fresh seafood. Patrons are able to bask in the sea breeze out on the deck: THE spot to watch the sunset. Huskisson also offers several small restaurants and cafes as well as the local RSL and movie theatre. Grocery shopping will need to be done in nearby Vincentia.

Campers and Campervans

The Booderee National Park offers powered sites at its camping grounds perfect for enjoying the weekend with your family or friends in your trusty caravan or campervan. The drive from Sydney is relaxing and enjoyable and there is plenty of space alongside campsites for your chairs, barbecue and other forms of entertainment. Get in contact with Sydney Caravans and Campers today to discuss more camping options close by to Sydney and elsewhere in New South Wales!

  • It’s a Foodies Paradise

  • Arts and Crafts 

If art and craft is more your scene, stop in at the Tilba Woodturning Gallery, Apma Creations and the Gulaga Gallery & Bookstore. You can browse an extensive range of antiques for sale, in addition to discovering traditional crafts and contemporary art and jewellery. Browsing the local shops and galleries is a great way to spend an afternoon, and no matter what your tastes may be – you are bound to find something wonderful in Central Tilba and Tilba Tilba. 

  • Great base for exploring the South Coast of NSW

The Tilba region is a great base for your South Coast adventure.

Both villages feature beautiful Colonial buildings as well as indigenous artefacts including rocks (known as Tors) which tell the creation story and can be found all around the region. The Tilba villages were added to the National Trust in 1974, so all buildings are preserved in their unique form and are full of character and charm. 

Where to Stay

It is best to park your caravan or motorhome in Narooma or the Mystery Bay campground and drive in for the day. There is limited parking available in Central Tilba, so arrive early if you want to secure a spot.

The Question: Motorhome or Caravan?

Do you love travelling? Do you love exploring your backyard and beyond? Have you ever wondered about the dividing topic – Caravan vs motorhome? We certainly have come across it in our personal life and because we sell used motorhomes in Sydney. That is why we thought to provide you with some information around this topic.

To make the right decision as to what is best for you:

  • Take a step back and have a look at the basics.
  • Have a think about how you want to use your motorhome or caravan.
  • Who will be travelling:
    • Single traveller
    • Multiple adults
    • Kids/Grandchildren (all the time/occasionally)

Keeping this in mind check out our motorhome vs caravan Australia pro and cons!


  • Easy to drive.
  • Sit up high and enjoy the views.
  • Easy to park.
  • Easy to set up.
  • Easy Peasy.
  • Get your chairs out and enjoy a drink.

….. However, if you stay in one location for a longer:

  • Exploring can become a challenge.
  • Every time you want/need to go for a drive: pack it all up.
  • Storage: Consider the hight of MH and exposure to elements.


  • Towing can be a challenge: The view from the car added with extra-long length to deal with and knowing how much room you need to manoeuvre around tight roads can take a lot of getting used to.
  • Make sure you have the right car for the right caravan. Do not underestimate the weight of a caravan.
  • Parking can be a challenge.
  • Reverse multiple times to get it into the right spot.
  • Uncouple the Caravan and potentially park the car in a different spot and then 
  • Hook up essentials.

….. However, if you stay in one location for a longer:

  • All you need to do is take your car and explore, leave the caravan parked.
  • No unpacking the whole campsite every time you leave.
  • It feels more like a home.
  • Usually easier to store as they are not as high as motorhomes.


  • Usually more expensive than a caravan.
  • To find out if a motorhome is the right thing for you either rent one or buy a second-hand one first. This won’t break the bank.
  • Reselling your motorhome at a higher price than a caravan.
  • Last for a longer time without having to upgrade/exchange for a new one. 
  • Registration.
  • Insurance.


While a caravan might be cheaper, do not forget 

  • To factor in the cost of the car. Having the right car to tow your caravan is critical when it comes to the safety or you and anyone travelling with you, not even mentioning the rules around road safety etc. 
  • The size and weight of the caravan will add to the fuel consumption
  • Additional items such as a weight-distribution hitch, friction coupling and others might be required. 
  • Caravans depreciate at a higher/faster rate than the big brother. 
  • Upgrading/exchanging your caravan might happen faster than you think, depending of course on how much you use it.
  • Registration.
  • Insurance.

So what are the top 5 reasons for second-hand motorhomes?

  1. Safety. 
  2. To be able to quickly slip behind the wheel and drive off whenever you want or need to.
  3. Length of stay. When you only stay a maximum of three nights packing up a motorhome is a lot easier than packing up a caravan.
  4. Layout – front seats swivel round to form part of a living area.
  5. Ongoing costs – only one vehicle to insure and fuel consumption is lower than if towing.

Will you join Team Caravan or  Motorhome?

Take your time to check out all the details you can before buying one or the other. Make sure you talk to reputable businesses, go for a testdrive and consider to buy second-hand first.

We are sure you will have lots of fun checking everything out and of course, we’d love to help you find your perfect matching second-hand Motorhome!

Camping with Kids & Hidden Gems in NSW

Why do we love to travel? Why do we love camping? Why do we escape the cities? Perhaps it reminds us of the times when we were kids and our parents took us on trips around Australia. Or maybe it is because it gives us a sense of freedom, leaving time behind us? Whatever the reason is, at some stage in our life we will make decisions on the way we camp. Our age and situation in life will be critical when we start looking at the various options of exploring. 

We are a family of 5, including our furry dog Bear. And we love exploring. With this article, we’d love to share some experiences and hidden spots for your next adventure. So no matter what age you are, I am sure you will find some exciting things to take home.

Discover 3 Hidden Gems in NSW

{Tip #1 Southern Highlands}:

So in the April School Holidays, we took our little one Abba ( 3 years back then) camping for two nights on one of the local farm stays in Canyonleigh – Morton Park Farm. Great little spot if you want to just be by yourselves and enjoy being outdoors and experience the beautiful sky at night.

Turned out that in April it still gets pretty cold and I totally underestimated that. But it was beautiful; we had a campfire going the whole day and had sausages that we grilled over the campfire on sticks that we selected from the bush around us. No nasty creepy critters annoyed us – one advantage to travelling in the colder months.

We were so excited about our first real camping experience and immediately started planning our next one. Mind you we did get a puppy in between so this time it had to be dog-friendly for our little Bear to come with us.

A wee bit chilly but so much fun!

Let me tell you, this is a great spot to take your Motorhome orCampervan onto a farm stay. Plenty of space to choose from. The benefit for you would be to have all your amenities with you and can ‘camp’ further away from the hustle.

{Tip #2 Dubbo}:

Viral Asthma and camping? We must have been mad. But, October School Holidays here we come! One of our girls has asthma and of course, she was sick the days leading up to this trip. Hospital the day we left for camping to double-check her cough, make sure she was still ok to go and a few hours later we made the call to give it a go! No risk no fun, right????

Whaaaaat was I thinking? We made it to our farm stay near Dubbo, beautiful place again! Lovely people and the property Pine View Camping & Farmstay is just beautiful. The day ended with pitching tents, not in the greatest moods I must say, but we made it and finally tucked the kids into their sleeping bags, to have a well-deserved drink with our friends.

The morning was gorgeous, the place was secluded but not out of reach. The farm owners, Sue and Matt, took the kids to feed the animals on the farm, an absolute ball for the kids. The adults properly sorted out the campsite only to find two holes at the bottom of the tent.

Could anything else go wrong??? Oh mind you yes – the so desperately needed rain was forecast: What to do? One sick kid, forecast temperature with only 14 for the day, rain and two dogs going crazy…. My mind was running overtime. I didn’t want to be the person to call the shots? Couldn’t someone else tell me what to do?????

Well, to be honest, the second night didn’t get better for us. I just felt crap but the 4 kids were looking forward to Dubbo Zoo (me too actually)…..

Dubbo Zoo was a pretty amazing experience, riding around on bikes with the kids and looking at all the animals was fun. But our eldest just got worse during the day and on our way back we decided to pack up. The rain was coming and we didn’t want her to get even worse besides having to cope with wet dogs and coldish temperatures the next day.

After 2 nights of what should have been 4, we packed up and left the beautiful campsite! Crying disappointed kids, exhausted adults and 5 hours to drive home. Lesson: A Motorhome would have been so much better! We would have had heating, a dry inside to warm up and play cards. This farm stay is pretty amazing and I would say any Motorhome or Campervan will love it here.

{Tip #3 Barrington Tops}:

Wouldn’t you think we would have had enough by now? Well, guess what we aimed for?  Another camping adventure! We stayed at Riverwood Downs a dog-friendly campsite close to Barrington Tops and we had a ball! Yes we had our struggles, with setting up a tent and one child vomiting for one afternoon and the other one having a temperature for a day as well, but we stuck it out! So much fun. Playing in the little river, splashing around all day just the right thing to do in Summer!

Motorhome and Campervan lovers: This campsite is just beautiful and accommodates all types of vehicles. Amazing amenities, activities and restaurants for those with or without dogs. Off-season it is pretty relaxing and few people around.

Camping with Kids is a lot of fun. All you need to be is prepared and have the right accommodation. We’d love to support you in finding the right fit. So, get in touch now and call us on 02 9832 4372 for your new Motorhome.

Have a Great Day!

The Advantages of Caravanning around Australia

There’s simply no better way to see Australia than to load up the caravan and hit the road. You don’t even need a destination in mind, all you need to bring is your sense of adventure and a willingness to take things as they come. You never know what you’ll come across during a caravan trip, and with Australia home to some of the most pristine beaches, incredible natural wonders and array of native wildlife; you’re bound to enjoy some unforgettable experiences which you wouldn’t find anywhere else in the world.

Perhaps you are new to camping and caravanning, or maybe you’ve had a bad experience in the past. Don’t worry, in this blog post we’ll be highlighting some top tips to make your trip unforgettable, and we’ll also highlight some of the most popular destinations worthy of your consideration.


The Benefits of Caravanning in Australia

Here at Sydney Caravans and Campers, we want to inspire your adventurous spirit and help you find true freedom on the open road. No matter whether you opt for a motorhome, camper or caravan these all have one thing in common – they allow unlimited freedom. Because you’re free to explore at your own pace, you can choose when, where and how you go about setting up camp.

Perhaps you’d like to play it safe and stick to designated campgrounds, and that’s great! If you’re up for an adventure, you can seek out your own spots off the beaten path. The choice is up to you, and before long we’re sure you’ll start to appreciate the many benefits of caravanning in Australia. Here are a few reasons why we’re such big fans:

  • Holiday on a budget – whilst the initial cost of a caravan, motorhome or camper may seem daunting, it will provide unlimited freedom. No more spending money on hotels, you’ve got everything you need within your own self-contained unit on wheels. For the times you aren’t using it, you can hire it out for extra income.
  • Get off The Beaten Path – discover places you wouldn’t normally be able to visit, whether due to location or lack of public amenities. Stay in National Parks, free camp or park up at the local caravan park, every day is an adventure.
  • Memories that Last a Lifetime – throughout your travels you will see incredible places and meet some amazing people, and these memories will last a lifetime.
  • Options to Suit Everyone – whether you’re after a campervan, caravan or a luxury motorhome, there’s something to suit every taste and budget.
  • Independence – whether on your own or with loved ones, caravanning brings with it a sense of freedom and independence you can’t get anywhere else. It’s the thrill of the open road and knowing you can go anywhere, any time without having to give up the comforts of modern life.

Top Destinations in Australia

Some of the most popular caravan destinations in Australia include:

  • The Blue Mountains
  • Port Arthur
  • The Barossa Valley
  • The Great Ocean Road
  • The Gold Coast
  • The Kimberley
  • The Grampians
  • The Daintree
  • Kakadu
  • Margaret River

All of the above sites offer stunning scenery and a uniquely Australian experience, and they’re just perfect for exploring by caravan. Whilst much of eastern Australia has experienced bushfire, there are many areas now reopening for business, and these communities could sure use your support.

The Keep on Camping website has been established to provide current information on the status of caravan parks in fire affected regions. This resource will prove invaluable in the planning of your caravan or camping trip, and it’s also a great place to read some local stories from fellow travellers to fire affected regions.

The 3 Essential Considerations

You should never rush your decision to head out on a caravan trip or purchase a caravan. You should always take the following into account:

Planning – You don’t have to have a destination in mind just yet, but it’s still a good idea to think about the areas you would like to see, some of the campgrounds you’d like to stay at, who will be coming on the trip and what time of year you’ll be heading out. Once you’ve got a rough itinerary in place, you’ll feel a lot more relaxed and confident about heading out.

Type of Caravan and Tow Vehicle – Think about the type and size of caravan you need. Some caravans are purpose built to go off-road, which generally means heavy duty tyres and solid construction. Think about the features you want, for example toilet/shower facilities. You also need to consider your vehicle – is it capable of towing the caravan you’re looking at?

The best thing to do is head along to a caravan and camping expo. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with choice, pick up the phone and give us a call and one of our friendly team members will help find the right model for your needs.

Safety – Ensure you have a strong understanding of all safety regulations, towing guidelines and the weight/dimensions of your caravan. You should also ensure you’ve got First Aid and emergency equipment ready to pack, such as a satellite phone and GPS system. Keeping up to date with safety regulations will ensure a safe and happy trip for you and all other road users.

The above considerations are by no means exhaustive, and you’ll no doubt have a million thoughts running through your brain before you embark on your adventure. The important thing is not to worry. Remember that everyone was a first-time camper/caravanner and that you’ll figure things out on the road. Before you know it, you’ll be a seasoned caravanner providing all the best advice to your friends and family.

So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and explore this amazing country by caravan, your next adventure is calling!

Your Australia Wide Location for Second Hand Campervans and Motorhomes

Would you believe that campervans and motorhomes are a great investment? Would you believe that second-hand campervans are an Australia wide phenomenon? Would you believe that many others, instead of buying brand new, are throwing in with the second-hand motorhome trend Australia wide? If you know anything about campervans and motorhomes, that information may not surprise you. If you aren’t knowledgeable about the inherent value of these majestic modes of transport, though, you might be scratching your head. Don’t worry, Sydney Campervans & Campers, sellers of second-hand motorhomes Australia wide, has got some information on why a second-hand campervan makes for a great purchase for anyone who might be taking a journey in the future.

How Popular Are Second Hand Motorhomes Australia Wide?

Quite. If you’ve done your research, you’re likely aware that many people enjoy the campervans and motorhomes for many reasons. The freedom and flexibility that they provide when you’re on holiday are incredible. It’s a home away from home suitable for providing some of the comforts and pleasures of your domicile while you cruise around on the open road. Having your own campervan can afford you with a sense of security, always knowing you’ll have a place to stay while travelling that is truly yours. Whether you’re taking a week off to ride along the beaches, or heading elsewhere to see the sights, it will always feel like an adventure filled with magical moments when you have your campervan or motorhome to accompany you along the way.

The drawback, in some cases, is that a fresh from the factory motorhome can run up the costs. Why pay so much when you can get something with equal quality for less? A second-hand campervan, Australia wide, is one of the best ways to get what you want at the best and most reasonable price around. When buying that second-hand campervan, however, you can’t just go anywhere. Not everyone has a great selection, and not every supplier will understand the intricacies of pre-owned motorhomes in a way that allows them to break things down for their clients. Luckily, though, we’re here to bridge that gap and provide a dedicated service for those looking for second-hand campervans and motorhomes.

Who Sells Second Hand Campervans Australia Wide?

Finding a Secondhand Campervan or Motorhome in Sydney

If you are a traveller longing to see the countryside from the point of view that you can’t get from staying at a hotel, seeing Australia’s beauty from a secondhand campervan or second-hand motorhome could be your new favourite way to take a trip. Travelling doesn’t get much more freeing than making a trip in a campervan or motorhome. The possibilities are endless to the places you can see, things you can experience, and the people you will meet along the way who probably share similar interests and stories.

There is nothing like being able to plan a holiday without the burden of needing a car rental, plane ticket or hotel reservation. You will be able to affordably travel to places you’ve always wanted to see without time limits or planes to catch. You can turn a simple camping trip into a unique adventure for the whole family. You will have the freedom of deciding when and where you want to go without worrying about places being booked at popular travel times each year or not having a safe place to stay every night.
