Start your Australian adventure off right in a Sydney Motorhome Rental

Discover the Land Down Under in a motorhome rental and start your holiday in Sydney, Australia’s famous harbour city. Explore the Opera House, Bondi Beach and Darling Harbour and indulge in some fabulous nightlife before heading off on the road trip adventure of a lifetime.

If you’d like to start off in a different city, check out campervan rental options for Melbourne, Brisbane, or Perth.

 

Grab a deal from Motorhome Republic in Sydney

Planning a big trip to Australia can be overwhelming, let us ease your travel plans by helping you find a motorhome rental deal that fits your plans and budget. Sydney is one of the nation’s largest cities, which means plenty of campervan options to suit your unique needs. Snag a deal with a minivan sized hire for fuel efficiency and easy parking. Ride in style in a luxurious RV or a motorhome for the whole family. Book for a weekend getaway, or a multi-month tour around the country - the longer the rental, the bigger the discount.

 

Where to go in your Sydney motorhome rental

Once you pick up your campervan hire in Sydney, you’ll want to stick around to check out the famous sights. Park your van for free during the day in neighborhoods like Alexandria and catch a bus into the city.

Staying for a few days? There are over 15 caravan parks, campgrounds and tourist parks in and around the Sydney area.

 

Plan your campervan road trip from Sydney

Sydney is located on Australia’s beautiful east coast, smack dab in the middle of New South Wales giving you a plethora of itinerary options from which to dabble.

If you have lots of time in this beaut (a little Aussie slang) country, we recommend an exciting east coast itinerary that takes you to Cairns, or Brisbane. Or head the other direction and explore the wonders of the south on your way through Melbourne and onto Adelaide.

Chop and change them as you see fit to make the most of your Australian campervan holiday.

If you decide to stay fairly local, make sure you hit these key attractions:

  • Blue Mountains National Park is an hour’s drive west of Sydney. Climb to the park’s spectacular lookouts over blues forests and crazy rock formations like the Three Sisters, an Aboriginal cultural site. Stop for a picnic near Wentworth Falls or dive into the park’s adventure activities like rock climbing, mountain biking and canyoning. Want a bird’s-eye view? Take a ride in the Cableway and Skyway gondolas.

  • Located in the foothills of the Blue Mountains are the Jenolan Caves. Discover underground grottos and rivers while on tour of Australia’s largest cave system. Enjoy a good ghost story? Book a night tour and listen to Jenolan’s mysterious, unexplained happenings or visit older caves not available on the day trail.

  • Sip Australian wine in Hunter Valley or the town of Orange, both only a few hours outside Sydney. Or follow the coast north for approximately six hours to Dorrigo National Park, a World Heritage site full of waterfalls and lovely strolls through NSW’s flora and fauna.

  • Love the roar of a fast engine? Check out Bathurst, three hours west of Sydney, where both the Mount Panorama Circuit and Vale Circuit are held each year.

  • It’s not often that snow and Australia are used in the same sentence, but if you’re heading to Oz in the winter months (June-Sept), Kosciuszko National Park is worth the visit. Home to the nation’s highest peak (2,228m), head here to ski slopes at either Perisher Blue or Thredbo ski field.

If you decide to rent a campervan outside of Sydney proper, check out Newcastle or Canberra for a relatively close alternative.

 

When to head to Sydney for an RV holiday

Australia is famous for its all-year round pleasant weather so you can’t really go wrong no matter when you come, but here’s what to expect for the different times of year:

  • Book in the summer months (December to February) for hot summer days when the sun shines for over 12 hours. Fair warning, this is also Sydney’s busy tourist season. Make sure to book your Motorhome Republic rental in advance.

  • June to August is Australia’s mild winter season, also its rainiest. Traveling during the ‘off season’ means fewer crowds, less tourists, and better deals for renting a Sydney motorhome.

  • Autumn and spring months are also great for avoiding peak season. Mild temperatures with less people on the road, makes it easy for planning on the go and not quite as hot, hot, hot as summer.

Campervan Hire Sydney - see the city by motorhome

Sydney is a fantastic starting point for a motorhome roadtrip throughout Australia. Become familiar with what the world renowned city has to offer with our guide before you arrive pick up your rental.

Overview of Sydney, Australia

Sydney is a campervan hub, offering the best brands in the business. Popular rental companies such as Apollo, Britz, Jucy and Maui are located in the CBD and surrounding neighborhoods. Book online with us to save time on finding the best deal. At Motorhome Republic, we offer top deals by comparing multiple motorhome brands with pick-up and drop-off locations across the country.

Sydney Accommodation

If you wish to park up the camper for a day or two and stop in the central city, there are thousands of accommodation options. All the famous international hotel chains populate Sydney’s skyline, such as the Marriott, Hilton and Intercontinental. But if you really want to splash out, the Park Hyatt just below the Harbour Bridge is sensational. However, it will set you back around $800 a night! For backpackers, the YHA has sites in the city centre and Bondi, among other places, while Kings Cross, Darlinghurst, Coogee and Glebe are other handy stop-off points. But the city has a wonderful infrastructure for travellers, so getting a bed shouldn’t be too difficult. Want to stay mobile? Hire a camper and hit the road to stay in one of the campgrounds and holiday parks in the outer suburbs – and there are many.

Sydney events – so much to do

The New Year’s Eve party and firework celebrations on the harbour are perhaps the most well-known festivities, but there’s plenty going on all-year round. The Mardi Gras in February-March has taken on a life of its own, with the Australian Garden Show sure to warm you in up in September. A game of Aussie Rules is an experience like no other, so check out the Sydney Swans – footy season runs from March to August.

Sydney: The International City For Food & Drink

It’s no surprise that Sydney has a delectable smorgasbord of culinary options, mainly thanks to its multicultural population. Chinese, Greek, Italian, Spanish, Thai and plenty more varieties of food are readily available. Major ‘Eat Street’ hotspots include East Circular Quay, Chinatown and Darling Harbour. For a more budget option, try Glebe, west of the city centre. Parking isn’t always easy, but that’s because the food is so good.

Sydney- A Wonderfully Diverse Culture and People

With more than 100 to choose from, it’s not surprising that Sydney is considered a modern-day haven for beaches – so your camper allows you to pick and choose. Surfing is an institution in Australia, while the beaches themselves are remarkably clean – partly a result of the Beach Watch Program established in 1989. Remarkably, Bondi is only 7km east of the business district and is always packed with backpackers and international visitors, with Coogee, Bronte and Manly also very popular. The outdoor lifestyle and surrounding environs are very conducive to international tourism – especially British and Irish!

Amazing Things To See and Do in Sydney

The most iconic image of Australia, along with the kangaroo, is the Opera House. And while you may be reluctant to follow the well-worn tourist path, we can personally assure you that it’s a must-see. Also located at the harbour, the bridge sits like another colossus of modern engineering in the background, with numerous other attractions (ferry trips, Taronga Zoo, Darling Harbour) nearby. The list is endless…

OK, so snakes, jellyfish, scary spiders and occasionally aggressive insects form a small portion of the Sydney welcoming committee, but the diversity of other living creatures more than make up for this slight inconvenience – and they’re often friendly. Taronga Zoo is a short ferry trip from the city, with more than 2600 animals, while Sea Life Aquarium is located in central Darling Harbour. If Koalas are more your thing, Featherdale Wildlife Park is worth the 40-minute drive in your Sydney campervan hire from the CBD. This route will also lead you to the Blue Mountains -perfect for those in possession of the freedom that a rental campervan brings.

If you want to get your dancing shoes on, then Sydney has more than enough to keep you entertained. One of the top 10 things to do is visit nightclubs such as Chinese Laundry and Hugo’s Lounge, while Surry Hills has been described as a drinking safari. Low 302 and Tio’s are just two options for a tasty beverage, with the Rocks and Darlinghurst well-known for a variety of watering holes.

Public transport systems in Sydney

Sydney (Kingsford-Smith) Airport is located a mere 15-minute drive from the CBD, serving more than 40 international destinations. There is a comprehensive network of rail, bus and ferry services. Train Link, Light Rail and Sydney Buses are the major operators.

Sydney Weather: Warm Summers, Mild Winters

Sydney enjoys a temperate climate of warm summers and mild winters. January and February are the warmest months, with average forecast highs just below 26 degrees. Even winter months are relatively warm, with the average low temperature dipping to around eight degrees in July.

Tracking Down a Campervan Hire in Sydney

All the major motorhome brands, such as Apollo, Britz, Jucy and Maui have branches in Sydney’s CBD or outer regions. A number of rental companies are clustered together, so it makes it easier to pop in quickly and work out the best deal for you. Search online for comparison sites. Motorhome Republic can help you compare the largest selection of brands for your Sydney campervan rental trip.
 

Campervan Rental and travel tips for Australia

  • Book ahead of time for the best deals.

  • Make sure to get plenty of rest on the road, switch drivers often or pull over for naps if you’re feeling sleepy.

  • Choose to visit during the off-season to save money and avoid crowded destinations.

  • Always book insurance with your campervan rental.

  • Drive cautious and avoid driving at night outside of cities as wildlife on the roads can be a hazard after dark.

Go Cheap and Cruisin Motorhomes are located at 23-25 Erskine Rd, Caringbah, which is around 13 kilometres from the Sydney Airport or 25 kilometres from the city centre.

The Beta 2S is newer again and suited to travellers who prefer to drive incognito, as this model doesn’t have the same bright orange branding on the vehicle. Note that none of Spaceships’ campervans have on-board bathroom facilities, so you’ll need to stay in campgrounds or caravan parks for the duration of your Australian trip. Hiring with Spaceships also makes you part of the Space Mates program, a national network of contact points for travel advice, discounts and DVD swaps.
