Hire a campervan for a quick weekend away or a multi-month tour across the country. Book with us for awesome deals on all types of motorhome rentals.

Where to go in your Perth motorhome rental

As the capital of Western Australia, Perth is situated on the southwest corner of the country’s largest territory. At roughly 2.5 million square kilometers of vast open road, your options are limitless in a Perth campervan hire. Don’t let this overwhelm you, we’ve created a few itineraries to get you started:

If time is on your hands look at picking up in Perth to drive along the stunning southern coast and through the rugged wilderness to Adelaide or vice versa. Tackle on the alluring west coast when en route to Broome located in the northwest of WA.

 

If you don’t want to stray too far from Perth, here are the top destinations:

  • A three-hour drive north of the city is Numbing National Park. Here you will find ancient, eerie limestone rocks spiking out of the sand dunes. Formed over millions of years, these mystifying rocks are worth checking out. The Pinnacles are best seen at sunrise or sunset for a one-of-a-kind desert experience.

  • Cruise down the coast for three hours to marvel at the Jewel Cave, one of Australia’s largest cave systems dripping with crystallised limestone formations. At 1.9 kilometres long and 42 metres deep, there are multiple chambers to explore. Visit Lake Cave to see a photo-worthy reflection on the permanent lake.

  • Stick around the Margaret River region for incredible rock climbing and canoe tours to local wineries and breweries.

  • Drive into the heart of Australia to Kalgoorlie for a look at the gold mining industry and be sure to stop by the Super Pit for an outstanding viewpoint over the nation’s largest open pit gold mine.

 

For longer journeys in your motorhome rental:

  • Head north about nine hours to Shark Bay, a protected UNESCO World Heritage site. Here you discover some of the world’s oldest fossils among a rich marine life. These waters are home to the biggest population of dugongs (sea cows) along with sea turtles, sharks and rays. At Monkey Mia bottlenose dolphins are friendly with tourists and are known to swim up to the shore to say hello.

  • Just north of here is Mount Augustus National Park. The park’s main attraction is the mountain itself formed of rock and twice as large as Uluru. Covered in ancient rock drawings, it is sacred to the local Wadjari Aboriginal people. This is another great spot to catch a desert sunrise or sunset.

  • How about a visit to one of the greatest wonders of the natural world? The Horizontal Waterfalls are a true gift from nature where the powerful ocean tide passes between two narrow gorges in Talbot Bay. Book a boat tour to see them up close or get a bird's-eye view from above in a seaplane.

 

When to travel to Perth for a campervan road trip

Perth is a great place to visit at any time of year with constant warm weather and beautiful sunshine. It’s actually the sunniest capital in all of Australia.

 

  • If you are travelling during the summer months (December to late March) prepare for dry, sweltering days with visits from the ‘Fremantle Doctor,’ the afternoon sea breeze. Highs reach over 30 degrees Celsius and rainfall is rare, book a RV with aircon to cool you down.

  • Visit during the winter months (June to August) for cooler temperatures between 8 - 19 degrees Celsius and stellar desert thunderstorms.

  • Autumn (March to May) is a great mix of warm, sunny days and cool nights rarely dropping below 10 degrees Celsius.

  • For green thumb fanatics, book your trip in the Spring (September to November) when over 12,000 species of wildflowers bloom across Western Australia.

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.

Perth - the gateway to the west

Often referred to as one of the most remote cities in the world (Adelaide is more than 2000km away), the metropolis itself is a cosmopolitan beauty. With an ever-growing skyline and booming tourism industry, it is the perfect spot to hire a motorhome.


Perched along the Swan River, Perth incorporates a big city feel with a beach town vibe. Dine in high-class restaurants or relax at the beach, both possible on the same day. The astonishing economic growth is due to the surrounding natural resources in mining and agriculture. It’s easy to see why this Australian city is becoming a fast favourite amongst tourists.

Where to stay in Perth

Take your pick of hotel and hostel options in the sunny state capital. If you enjoy being in the hustle and bustle of the city, check out Mounts Bay Road and Wellington St in the CBD. Search for five-star hotels on Hay Street, both Hyatt Regency and Pan-Pacific come highly recommended. Many backpacker hostels are available for money-conscious travellers. But the best bang for your buck is a Motorhome Republic campervan - wheels and a place to rest your head at night, what could be more perfect?

Perth’s favourite events

Learn about Perth’s agriculture at the week-long Royal Show set in late September or early October. This event showcases info exhibits, agricultural competitions, display animals and has a large fairground of rides and games. Sporting events are always popular in Australia. The Hopman Cup welcomes professional tennis players from around the world each January- don’t worry, it’s indoors. Spend the day at the WACA for a cricket match or cheer on the Super XV rugby union. For a unique sporting event, check out an Aussie rules football match and ask your friendly neighbors to explain the game.

Best eats in Perth

Enjoy a bit of everything from Perth’s diverse culinary repertoire. Feast on Italian cuisine in the Cappuccino Strip in Fremantle - a must-visit location. Asian fare is always available with cheap takeaways around every corner and lush Asian-inspired dining. Alfred’s Kitchen is famous for its insanely mouth-watering burgers and won’t break the bank. For a mixed culinary fare and great people watching, head to Forrest Place market or Five Bar in Mount Lawley.

Residents of Perth

Two million people reside in the diverse city of Perth. This has been home for Aboriginals for centuries as Western Australia colonised as a free settlement. There is a mix of Europeans, South Africans and Asians and over the years a growing number of expats settling in Perth’s booming city.  

Perth’s must-see and dos

As a coastal city on the Indian Ocean, water sports such as surfing, wakeboarding, kitesurfing, snorkelling and scuba diving are always fun in Perth. Lounge at top-rated beaches like Cottesloe and Rockingham and bring your family to Scarborough.

Located near the business district is Kings Park. Park your campervan for free at this registered Botanic Gardens. Climb up to Mt Eliza for a perfect view over the city and Swan River, and enjoy a picnic on one of many grassy lawns.

For those who enjoy the arts, don’t miss the Art Gallery of Western Australia curated with over 15,500 works of art. The Academy of Performing Arts always has a show worth attending. The West Australian Ballet and Opera groups are well-established with a calendar of events.

One of Perth’s best neighborhoods known for an eclectic mix of culture and art is Fremantle - only 30 minutes from the CBD. Listed as number seven of Lonely Planet’s 2016 ‘Best in Travel’, this upbeat port city is one not to miss. Hang in trendy cafes, listen to buskers’ along the sidewalks and check out a plethora of artisan crafts.


Check out the events bar that pops up when you search for specific dates on Motorhome Republic’s site to find out what’s on when you arrive.

Transport in Perth

If you arrive a few days before you pick up your motorhome rental, utilise the city’s public transportation service called Transperth for buses, ferries, and trains. The international airport offers a bus service that takes around 40 minutes from the main terminal to the CBD. It is a sprawling city and public transport is not always available. Car and motorhome rentals are a great idea to get around, and depots are available across the city as well as near the airport.

It wouldn’t be Western Australia without the heat

Non-stop sun and hot temperatures make for light luggage, but also mean the necessity of caring for your campervan hire. The conditions are standard in this part of the world, but make sure to ask your rental company for tips on maintenance.

Perth Motorhome Rental Brands

 

As the window to the west, Perth is booming with unlimited campervan options. Choose from up to 14 unique rental companies, both local and international brands.  Depots are spread across the city with a number located near Perth’s international airport. Book with an intercity depot and ask about complimentary shuttle services. Public transport into the city is quick and affordable or grab a taxi for an easy 15-minute ride. Pick up your Perth motorhome hire and set off for the wild, wild west.


Driving tips in and around Perth

 

  • Drive on the left-hand side of the road.

  • Be cautious of rugged terrain in remote regions. Hire a 4WD if you are planning to visit these types of areas.

  • Wildlife in WA is always active, beware of animal crossings and avoid nighttime driving when possible.

  • Always keep plenty of water and food on board and fill up on petrol before heading to remote regions.

  • Some vehicle types sell out during peak season, book early to avoid this dilemma.
