Sydney-Melbourne Touring is the primary place to plan a road trip by caravan and adventure between Melbourne and Sydney along the two scenic routes, the Coastal Drive and the Inland Heritage Drive. The Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide to Alice Springs by campervan is a long journey so plan your itinerary accordingly, select accommodation and browse and book activities like kayaking, bushwalking and hot air ballooning.
Phase 1: Sydney To Melbourne
Drive from Sydney to Melbourne, and along the way stop to swim the white sand beaches of Jervis Bay, spot whales in Eden and hike to the southernmost tip of mainland Australia in Wilsons Promontory National Park. See seals, penguins and koalas on Phillip Island then round out this bucket-list road trip with award-winning Mornington Peninsula wine.
Your Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide to Alice Springs by campervan, tour takes the route to Jervis bay which should take around 3 hours of driving. On the Sydney to Melbourne route section of the Boomerang Coast, you’ll have the chance to camp in state forests and by beaches; two of my favourite spots are Army Camp near Jervis Bay and Scrubby Creek Rest Area, which has some great walking tracks, located near Eden.
The picturesque village of Pambula is one of the highlights along Australia’s stunning Sapphire Coast. Pambula’s highlights are its amazing fine, sandy beaches, the Ben Boyd National Park that surrounds it, an abundance of wildlife; and of course, the succulent oysters from the nearby oyster farms. You can easily spend a few days or even a week in Pambula without getting bored.
From Pambula make your way to Gippsland Lakes. The Gippsland Lakes are a network of lakes and lagoons where you can swim and surf. The best way to spend the afternoon here is by getting on a sail to explore the lakes. Great, because you can visit the Ninety Mile Beach which is a 90-mile-long stretch of pristine golden sand.
Wilsons Promontory National Park
Wilsons Promontory is a beautiful National Park where you can enjoy a walk to Squeaky Beach, or further along the coast where there are plenty more beaches awaiting to be explored. Hike Mount Oberon which takes around one hour from the car park. For beautiful photography, hike Mount Oberon during the sunset or sunrise to capture those soft pastel colours.
Phase 2:Adelaide to Alice Springs
Clare Valley wine region & Flinders Ranges
Moving along your Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide to Alice Springs by campervan moves onto driving from Adelaide to Alice Springs. We start our adventure travelling through the vineyards of the Clare Valley wine region, but soon enough we’re heading into the rugged Outback through the historic town of Melrose, the gateway to the Flinders Ranges. We enjoy an easy stroll through the awesome Alligator Gorge, which is sometimes bursting with wildflowers. We’ll then settle in the heart of the Southern Flinders Ranges for the night.
Along the way to Coober Pedy the Opal Capital of the World you’ll notice the incredible changing landscapes. Wildlife, such as kangaroos, emus and eagles will scatter as road trains thunder across a landscape that resembles Mars or the Moon. A highlight for some is visiting Josephine’s Kangaroo Orphanage, where you can meet the rescued kangaroos and baby joeys and admire (or buy) Aboriginal art and didgeridoos.
Kings Canyon & Uluru
Explore the Watarrka (Kings Canyon), where you’ll need to stop to admire and photograph the massive sandstone walls, vast canyon floor and stunning gorges. On the Canyon Rim Walk, you’ll experience the beautiful Garden of Eden. Then afterwards begin your journey into Uluru. Nothing will prepare you for the sight of The Rock. Soon after we’ll be experiencing our first awe-inspiring Uluru sunset, taking time to absorb the beauty and majesty of this place.
We start the day at dawn taking a walk around the base of Uluru. Hiking through acacia woodlands and grassy clay pans, you’ll spot wildlife at waterholes, marvel at The Rock’s geological wonders and learn more about Aboriginal interpretations from your Culturally Accredited Groovy Guide. Later, we relax back at our campground or join one of our Adrenalin Plus options.
After devouring yet another scrumptious breakfast we’ll experience a glorious sunrise over Kata Tjuta before we hike to lookouts around Kata Tjuta and visit the majestic Valley of the Winds with its ancient rock formations and extraordinary views. After lunch, hit the road to Alice Springs to end the Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide to Alice Springs by campervan tour.
