10 Of The Cutest Campervans You Can Hire To Road Trip Around Australia

It’s not surprising that the main travel trend of 2020 is road tripping. And when we’re reaching our destinations, many of us are choosing to camp instead of stay in hotels.

In fact, Camplify (essentially Airbnb for campervans) reported a 125 percent increase in Winter camping holidays compared to last year — so just image what that’ll mean for summer.

As someone who joined in that winter camping trend, it’s a delight. We were able to kit out my friend’s car, but it’s not always possible. Plus camping gear can be expensive, so the fact you can hire an Insta-ready campervan kind of makes me happy. Camplify have shared 10 of their quirkiest vehicles with us for inspiration.

#1 Dolce Sole Camper (Burleigh Heads, QLD)

I rarely enjoy a bright yellow anything, except when it comes to cute vehicles. This adorable van has a custom vintage interior design by digital creators Tegan & Ned, keeping things cute, bright and breezy.

#2 Aalto Van Co // Sandy (St. Kilda West, VIC)

Ok, excuse me, but why is this whole set up more chic than my own home? This creation was built by a small Vanlife design and build studio from Melbourne.

#3 Henry (Sydney, NSW)

If you have a bed, you have a campervan, and this adorable gut gives all the beachy vibes. It might not have a kitchen, but it has plenty of under storage for your surfboard, bikes or winter snow equipment.

#4 Omeo (Brisbane, QLD)

If you’re someone who gets excited by funky amenities, this one will excite you. Like a Nutribullet, a French press, indoor and outdoor kitchens, a fridge freezer and reading lights. The owners are even happy for you to take it on a longer trip.

#5 Yugen, Olivia  (Miami, QLD)

While the outside isn’t much to look at, inside is just about the most glampervan you’ll ever see. The double bed is a legit, pocket sprung mattress for one. And just look at that kitchen.

#6 Cosy Campers, (Yeronga, QLD)

Ok everybody stop, because this is the cutest campervan I’ve ever seen. It’s like a wood cabin on wheels. This converted Mercedes Benz is fitted with handcrafted, reclaimed timber and powered by solar panels.

#7 Mazzy The Van, Flinders, NSW

She’s a vintage beauty, and you may not be driving her, but if you book a campsite the owners will sully set her up at it for you — no towing, driving large vehicles or wrangling a setup in the dark.

#8 Hendrix (Coolum Beach, QLD)

You’ll notice a few vans from the Drifters for hire, and none are cooler than Hendrix — and automatic 2015 Toyota Hiace kitted out with hotel-quality bedding, a mini bookshelf, cards and games, Bluetooth speaker and coffee maker.

#9 Bilbo (Brisbane, QLD)

Even nicer than a Hobbit Hole, Bilbo is a lovingly restored and complete self-sufficient vintage campervan with a Bluetooth speaker, games console, board games and a fully equipped kitchen.

#10 Van Halen – The Campervan (West Beach, SA)

I mean, you know it’s going to be rock and roll with a name like this. This bad boi is completely insulated, fits three people and has plenty of storage space for all your goods.
