Australia self drive and campervan holidays

When most of us think about Australia, we imagine space and freedom. So what could be better than being free to explore in your own rental car, enjoying the epic Outback desert, setting up camps with ocean views or just relaxing on deserted beaches?

Our Australia self drive holidays will give you the freedom explore Australia independently, but without the hassle of planning it all on your own. You can visit the Outback, the stunning East Coast, Sydney and magical Ayers Rock, travelling either by rental car or campervan. You can hike through Kings Canyon and cruise billabongs in search of monster crocs.
