Campervan Road Trips from Adelaide

looking for some inspiration on where to drive your campervan in South Australia? Here are some suggested itineraries from past travellers and our reservations team to wet your appetite travelling around South Australia and further afield:

If you can drag yourself away from the relaxing beaches and delicious food in Adelaide, you might want to give your fresh new wheels a spin. Whether you’re after a long roadie or a quick day trip, check out some of these popular spots to start planning your adventure.

Victor Harbor

Spot some migrating whales from your motorhome or campervan hire in Victor Harbor Source:

Just 80km from the city, Victor Harbor is a popular seaside destination in easy driving distance for a road trip in your motorhome rental from Adelaide. If it’s fresh air and relaxation you’re after, then you’ve come to the right place. This city is a stone’s throw away from some incredible walks, drives, and general beauty spots, like the Deep Creek Conservation Park and Heysen Trail. Victor Harbor is also famous for wildlife spotting, as it’s a great place to see whales as they make their annual migration. You can also visit penguins on Granite Island, or continue your travels to Kangaroo Island to spot some furry creatures in their natural habitats.

Adelaide to Perth

If you’ve got more than a week to enjoy your campervan holiday in South Australia, consider heading on the epic road trip from Adelaide to Perth. This trip can take anything from a week to months, depending on how long you wish to spend in each place, but to really make the most of the journey two weeks would be optimal. The trip is one of the most legendary in Australia, taking in mining towns, caves, bushwalks, the Nullabor Plain with Austrlaia's longest and flatest roads and stunning views of the coastline.

Flinders Ranges

The majesty of the Flinders Ranges makes them well worth a visit during your South Australian trip Source:

Discover what the outback is all about with a trip to Flinders Ranges, about 220 km from Adelaide. This area is home to some incredible scenery and wildlife for you to explore, including huge grasslands, deserted mountains, and gorges. Flinders Ranges is an ideal place to come in a campervan or 4 wheel drive rental with plenty of campsites and places to park up, but with more than enough open space for you to enjoy the peace and quiet.

Barossa Valley

If you didn’t get your fill of wine tastings from the local wineries in the Adelaide Hills, there’s plenty more in store for you. The Barossa Valley is one of the world’s most famous wine regions, an area that produces more than 21% of all of Australia’s wine! The Barossa Valley is just 65km away, making it an ideal day trip from Adelaide. It’s not all about the wine, either, as the stunning surrounding landscape is a reason in itself to visit the area. There are the glorious Barossa Regional Parks, Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park, and farmers markets to explore, as well as museums showing off the area’s German heritage.

Where to Park Your Campervan Rental in Adelaide

If it’s your first time hiring a campervan in Adelaide, one of the first questions running through your head may be, ‘Where are we going to sleep?’ This is a great question. Although your bed comes with your vehicle, you do want to make sure you’re parked in a safe, convenient, and pleasant spot. While there are many places that you can simply pull up and set up camp without booking, it can often be easier to plan ahead and book a designated campground, where you can use power, water, and toilet facilities. Luckily, Adelaide and the surrounding area cater very well to campervan holidays, and there is a range of different campsites depending on how wild you’d like your adventure to be! Here are just a few.

BIG4 Adelaide Shores Caravan Park

If you are hoping to spend a few days exploring the city, you probably won’t want to travel too far from Adelaide itself to park up. To solve this problem, there are a number of great campsites either in Adelaide or within a short drive, one of which is the BIG4 Adelaide Shores Holiday Park. Besides being conveniently situated on Adelaide’s own West Beach, this Big4 location has some impressive facilities that you’d expect more from a hotel than a campsite, including a lagoon style pool and go karts.

Cape Jervis Station and Caravan Park

For a more low key and rustic experience, head out of the city to a campground like the Cape Jervis Station and Caravan Park. Located right next to the beach and with everything you need for a basic night’s rest, this is a great spot to kick back, enjoy the peace and quiet, and hopefully catch a sunset or two!

Adelaide Hills

Adelaide is well known for its beautiful wine country, with many varieties of cool climate wines including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc. At just a short drive in your camper from Adelaide, and in close proximity to national parks and conservation parks, the Adelaide Hills are a great place to come and sample some of the goods. Like many wineries, not only is this setting beautiful, but it also comes hand in hand with delicious restaurants and farm shops for you to try out other produce. Park up at the Hahndorf Resort Tourist Park or Barossa Tourist Park, and enjoy an excellent combination of camping with fine food and wine.

What to Look Out For on Your Trip to Adelaide

So you’ve landed in Adelaide, picked up the keys to your campervan or motorhome rental, and now you’re ready to see some sights. While some people might head straight for the open road to make the most of the stunning natural environment, there’s a whole lot to explore in Adelaide itself before you head off. Check out some of these highlights before shooting off on your drive.

Glenelg Beach

Just 12km from the centre of Adelaide is the relaxed, sunny suburb of Glenelg, complete with its famous white sandy beach. This beach is a particular hit with visitors as well as locals, as there is a wide range of activities available besides just lounging on the sand. Head out on a sailing tour of the area, swim with the local dolphins, and go snorkelling, scuba diving, or even jet boating! The beach is family and dog friendly and is a great place to do a bit of shopping, grab some lunch, and just soak up the good vibes.

Adelaide Botanic Gardens

Wander around a green oasis in the heart of the city at Adelaide Botanic Gardens Source:

Adelaide is well known for being a green city, so what better place to appreciate this than in the spectacular Adelaide Botanic Gardens? Not just an ordinary stroll around the park, these botanic gardens are home to one of Australia’s finest collections of native and exotic plants, with different species grouped into interesting landscaped gardens. If plants aren’t your thing, you could still be impressed by the striking architecture used to house them, like the huge Bicentennial Conservatory and Palm House.

Central Markets

Sample your way around the Central Markets to enjoy a taste of South Australian produce Source:

Adelaide has a thriving food and drink scene, with plenty of exciting restaurants, cafes, and bars for you to sample during your stay. With influences from Asia and across the globe as well as a focus on the Modern Australian menu, you’ll have no trouble finding something to pair the local South Australian wines with. If you’re looking for a bite to eat and want something a little lower key, head to the Central Markets. A huge part of South Australia’s food history for more than 140 years, the markets are an integral part of the city and a great place to find fresh produce.
