The road trip across Western Australia…Sounds exciting? Wait until you find out about all the amazing places to see on your way. Whether you decided to rent a car or a campervan, your trip will be unforgettable. Enjoy the journey!
Should I rent a car?
With the free CAT busses that can take you around the Perth city centre and a good connection with Fremantle, you might wonder if you still need to rent a car when visiting Perth. This is good thinking, because if you are joining some of the tours to see the surrounding area, renting a car will not make any sense.
However, if this is your first time visiting Perth and you are planning to see more than just the Perth city attractions and Fremantle, renting a car might be essential and will definitely allow you to get around much easier.
Must-sees when renting a car in Perth
The must-sees when renting a car in Perth are Fremantle, Perth beaches, Swan Valley, Pinnacles desert, Rottnest Island, and Margaret River. In Margaret River, make sure to check out the Jewel Cave, Margaret River Fudge Factory, the Busselton Jetty and the Cape Lighthouse.
If you are lucky to have more time to travel in Perth and Western Australia, check out the route along the Coral Coast. There are some heavenly places, such as the World Heritage sites – Shark Bay and Ningaloo, the Cape Range National Park, Monkey Mia, Coral Bay and Exmouth.
Campervan rental: West is the best
If you have not experienced anything like this before, the campervan adventure should be on top of your bucket list. Moreover, it will be hard to find a better place to do this than Western Australia! The beauty of the region will leave you speechless and create memories that will last for a lifetime.
One of the perks you get if you decide to hire a campervan is that you do not have to think about the accommodation every time you move to a new place. Across the state of Western Australia, there are excellent campsites and travelling in a campervan will be a blast. Besides basic needs, some of the campervan sites provide barbecue facilities, equipment hire, swimming pools and even spa.
Where to go in a campervan when travelling in WA
When travelling in your own campervan, think whether you want to go to the South-West region (Perth-Bunbury-Albany-Augusta) or the North-West (Perth-Geraldton-Exmouth-Coral Bay). Or maybe both! If you decide to travel to the North-West, make sure to ask for travel tips at your rental company, as they might have certain restrictions, for example, how far you can travel.
