Perth Motorhome Rental

Perth is the hub of western Australia and the best location to begin your Australian campervan holiday

 

Hiring a motorhome from Perth

Perth is home to around 2 million people, and is the fourth most populous city in Australia. Sitting on the banks of the Swan River in the southwest of the country, Perth is the best location to pick up a motorhome to travel around Western Australia. You can choose from any one of the 14 fleets available through Motorhome Republic for a month-long campervan tour of Australia, or simply pick one up for a long weekend away or a quick retreat. The range includes campervans designed for an affordable, no frills holiday, and those that include all the latest features and luxuries, so you’ll have no trouble finding one suited to your style. 

 

Where to go with your Perth motorhome

Western Australia takes up a third of the whole country, and has a mainland area of roughly 2.5 million square kilometres. That’s enough space to fit the entire country of New Zealand more than 9 times, and that’s a lot of places to explore in your Perth campervan hire.
 

Shark Bay is roughly 9 hours north of Perth and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s where you’ll find the largest population of dugongs and the oldest living fossils on the planet. It’s also where you’ll see the friendly Monkey Mia dolphins, which come up to the shore every day to interact with people. 
 

A little further north and inland from Shark Bay is Mount Augustus, a mountain that is actually a rock that is also twice the size of Uluru. Plus, it’s the largest rock in the world. It’s 860 metres high and is decorated with ancient rock art from the Wadjari Aboriginal people. Try to be there at sunrise or sunset for an doubly spectacular sight. 
 

Relatively close to Perth at just 3.5 hours down the coast, one of Australia’s largest caves awaits you. The Jewel Cave is 1.9 kilometres long and reaches depths of 42 metres, and features beautiful soft-lit stalactites and formations.
 

The Pinnacles are only 300 kilometres (about 2.5 hours) from Perth, and are one of the most famous sites in Australia. These formations are tall spires of limestone that have taken millions of years to form. There are thousands of them standing straight up in an arid desert landscape, and are another spot that can be even more enjoyable during sunrise or sunset. 
 

Yet another iconic destination is the Horizontal Waterfalls, which is suited for those on longer motorhome tours from Perth. Situated in the north of Western Australia, there are two waterfalls in Talbot Bay near Derby that fall sideways instead of down due to powerful ocean currents. 

 

Best times to hire a campervan in Perth

Perth has the most sunny days out of any of the Australian capitals, making it a great place to visit just about any time of year. 
 

Summers can become quite hot, with averages in the low 30 degree Celsius range. The temperature cools down to around 20 degrees Celsius through winter (June to August), although this is the time of year for spectacular thunderstorms and rainshowers. 
 

Spring is a great time to visit – between September and November – when it’s not too hot, yet it rains infrequently.

Campervan hire Perth – go wild in the West

This city on Australia’s western coast is the gateway to the stunning state of Western Australia. With an international airport, a busy seaport and a bustling tourism industry, it has all you need to kick off a wonderful motorhome road trip. So here’s everything you need to know about camper rental in Perth.

Overview of Perth, Australia

Describing Perth as remote is something of an understatement. You will find the capital of Western Australia on the south-west tip of the mainland, with the nearest city being Adelaide, more than 2000km away. However, this doesn’t limit the number of interesting places to go and things to see and do in your motorhome rental.

Its location on the Swan River is very fitting, as the region has always been blessed with natural resources. Mining and agriculture dominate the economic landscape and the region is undergoing an economic boom in terms of performance. A delightful balance of vibrancy and relaxation, Perth is a city on the up, with a warmth reflecting all that’s good about Australia.

Perth hotels, hostels, backpackers

There’s a cluster of hotels in the CBD, specifically around Mounts Bay Road and Wellington St – but Hay St is a little more exclusive with a handful of five-star options. Hyatt Regency and Pan-Pacific have good reputations. For those on a budget, backpacker hostels are in plentiful supply. Campervan rentals are a great option for a holiday in Perth and combine a place to stay with wheels to get on the road and into the Western Australia wilds.

Events in Perth

Due to a temperate climate, it’s unsurprising that outdoor activities are popular. One major annual event is the week-long Royal Show around September-October. Much like the rest of the country, Perth locals have the sporting bug and there are numerous opportunities to see the world’s best. The Hopman Cup hosts the elite of professional tennis, with the WACA home to Perth’s number one sport, cricket – a top-class sporting facility. You can also take in the unique pleasures of Aussie rules and Super XV rugby union with the improving Western Force.

Eat in or takeaway? - Places to eat in Perth

If you get tired of cooking on your camper stove, why not splash out on some Perth cuisine. When it comes to interesting places to eat, the restaurant selection is outstanding. European immigrants have helped develop a truly cosmopolitan population, and a trip to the Italian-inspired Cappuccino Strip in Fremantle is one of the top 10 things to do. Delight your taste buds with pasta restaurants, coupled with Asian-inspired spots nearby. Delis are commonplace, with Alfred’s Kitchen an institution, delivering top-notch burgers for that budget option. The night markets of Forrest Place and Five Bar in Mount Lawley are also tourist favourites.

The people of Perth

More than two million people are estimated to now live in Perth, with an ever-growing tourism industry and increasing interest in campervan travel. There’s a strong European population, although South Africans have made their home here, especially in recent years. The Aboriginal culture dates back centuries, with Western Australia colonised as a free settlement.

Things to do, places to go

When it comes to Perth Attractions, It’s impossible to ignore the outdoor lifestyle. Propped up by the Indian Ocean, beaches such as Cottesloe and the more family-friendly Scarborough will take your breath away. Rockingham is also an award-winner. So surfing, wakeboarding, snorkelling and all other water-based activities should be on your to-do list.

Perth is now firmly established as a popular tourism spot – and not just the sunniest region of Australia, with around 3000 hours a year! Kings Park is a fantastic welcome to the city, with stunning views and 400 hectares – a natural nirvana. You may just want to park up the camper and spend the day there.

The West Australian Ballet and Opera groups illustrate a growing creative and artistic scene, with the Academy of Performing Arts a breeding ground for younger talent. The Art Gallery of Western Australia is also a showcase for outstanding exhibitions and there are a number of museums worth visiting.

Fremantle is a little gem, with a surfeit of interesting historical buildings and trails. Despite its small size, it enjoys a diverse culture and has numerous pubs and clubs. Only 30 minutes from Perth’s city centre, Fremantle is an essential destination.

Perth Transport

Much like the city itself, Perth Airport has enjoyed exceptional growth in terms of people using the facility, with services from the likes of South Africa, New Zealand and Dubai. Located 17km from the city centre, there is a shuttle service in operation. Transperth provide all your bus, ferry and train requirements. For self-drive holidays, car and motorhome rentals are available from a number of depots.

Hot, hot and hotter - Perth weather

Knowing what to wear in Perth in summer is not difficult. With sunny weather and average temperatures in January and February of 31 degrees, clothing will probably be at a minimum. Even in winter, the average only drops to around 13 degrees. In these conditions, it’s vital you take care of your camper rental. Don’t speed and ask your hire company for advice on maintenance.

Motorhome hire companies in Perth

There are plenty of options, with a number of small local or national chains alongside the big names. Some depots are at the airport, with others elsewhere in the city, but off-airport depots may offer free transfers, and the distance to travel into the Perth CBD isn’t very far. A campervan rental from Perth, WA gives you the freedom to explore the best of Western Australia and beyond.


Perth Pointers for camper road trips

Have a read of these handy tips before booking your Perth campervan hire:

  • Brush up on Australian road rules before driving. The most important one? Drive on the left!

  • Book as early as you can to get the best deals and early-bird specials. Some classes of vehicle also sell out quickly for peak periods, so be in quick.

  • Watch out for wildlife when driving in remote area - hitting a kangaroo is no small collision.

  • Rent a 4WD if you are planning an adventure on unsealed roads. Western Australia is a great place for this type of trip.
