Don’t let the winter chill ruin your holiday. Rug up, stock up the RV with lots of essentials and hit the road. Winter time can be a fantastic way to spend sacred time with loved ones and making the most of travelling in Australia.
The best part about travelling in an RV is that you can deck it out and be prepared to suit the change of weather so that it’s the best experience possible. After all, it’s nice to do something out of the ordinary. So go ahead…pick a getaway, have some fun and get that well deserved R&R!
Here are five incredible destinations that we love. This will also be a great opportunity to spice up your Instagram grid and will make those at home feel very jealous!
1. Falls Creek, Victoria
Ignite your adventurous side and visit Falls Creek. The scenery is not only breathtaking and is a place the whole family will LOVE. Our top place we recommend staying at is ‘SKI!’, which is the biggest ski resort and also offers skiing classes for both kids and adults. A top pick for the adults is a place called ‘Stingray Bar’, which is a 1950s style bar and will be a highlight of the trip.
2. Carnarvon National Park, Queensland
Carnarvon Park is another place that is on our must-visit list. This is an iconic park based 600km north of Brisbane and is renowned as the ‘oasis for the desert’. The photographs you will take will blow your mind and will be an unforgettable experience for everyone. Highlights include the rainforests, cliffs, creeks and, of course, the Aboriginal rock art.
3. Eyre Peninsula, South Australia
The Eyre Peninsula is one of the most unique locations to visit during winter, surprisingly! One of the best things about this location is the serenity whilst sitting around the campfire in the evenings. Believe us when we say it is unforgettable. There are a variety of free camping spots and the sight-seeing opportunity is amazing. Plus, for all the seafood fans…this location is famous for providing the best seafood dishes. Yum!
4. Albany, Western Australia
Albany in winter is a fantastic place to go if you feel like a getaway that involves as little crowds as possible. Not only are the beaches beautiful to look at, but you will also be able to hopefully witness the whales migrating. Nearby locations include the Stirling Ranges, Karri forests and West Cape Howe National Park, which is great if you want to entertain the kids!
5. Cairns, Queensland
Cairns is a must this winter holiday season. Highlights of Cairns include the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, Kuranda Scenic Railway and the Rainforestation National Park. Don’t miss out on going to Barron Falls and the Barron Gorge National Park to see some wicked scenes. For the animal lovers, there’s plenty to see at the Koala Gardens Wildlife Park. Whatever you choose -you certainly won’t be bored!
6. Jervis Bay, New South Wales
Jervis Bay is an incredible spot too. Winter is a great time to visit as you can bush walk or bike ride along the beautiful coastlines. The Booderee National Park is a highlight and is also kid-friendly. You can even do some whale watching cruises and the seals in the bay. This location is super unique yet a beautiful place to getaway this winter.
7. Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory
Famous for their birds and wildlife, Kakadu National Park is an unforgettable experience at any time of year. Visit Gunlom Falls and Muguk for some hidden gem findings. Ubirr is a popular Aboriginal rock art gallery and features some stunning pieces that are worth making the trip for.
8. Broome, Western Australia
Broome is one of our favourite locations to visit. Broome’s climate is super warm and tropical and is an awesome way to break up the winter period. Activities that are highly renowned in Broome are the Broome Camel Safaris, Sundowner Camel tours and the Broome Whale Watching. Not only this, Broome has stunning beaches and water sport opportunities. So go on, start packing your RV!
