Tasmania Campervan Hire

Posted on 30 July 2009

Tasmania Campervan HireAustralia's island state of Tasmania is a great place for a campervan holiday. For a start, it's only 300 kilometres across (364 kilometres (226 mi) long from the northernmost point to the southernmost point and 306 kilometres (190 mi) from west to east), so you're only ever half a day away from the beautiful coastal beaches. Check out the video at the bottom of this post to see what a great campervan holiday in Tasmania looks like.

The following information on Tasmania is from Wikipedia (
Tasmania is an Australian island and state of the same name. It is located 240 kilometres (150 mi) south of the eastern side of the continent, being separated from it by Bass Strait. The state of Tasmania includes the island of Tasmania, which is the 26th largest island in the world, and other surrounding islands. The state has an estimated population of 500,000 (as of December 2008) with almost half located in the greater Hobart area, and an area of 68,401 square kilometres (26,410 sq mi), of which the main island covers 62,409 square kilometres (24,096 sq mi).

Tasmania is promoted as the Natural State and the "Island of Inspiration" owing to its large and relatively unspoiled natural environment. Formally, almost 37% of Tasmania is in reserves, National Parks and World Heritage Sites.

The state capital and largest city is Hobart, which encompasses the local government areas of City of Hobart, City of Glenorchy, and City of Clarence, while the satellite town of Kingston (part of the Municipality of Kingborough) is generally included in the Greater Hobart area. Other major population centres include Launceston in the north and Devonport and Burnie in the northwest.

Local residents want them gone -- and rangers have spoken to them, but as it's private property the rangers have no jurisdiction. The story gained traction after a real estate agent started marketing the beachfront property, at AUD$1.5 million and discovered campers stayingthere. And when the agent told the owner about the dilemma, the owner laughed and said, "Why wouldn’t you want to camp there, it’s beautiful." Here's the story link.

Here's a great article from the Sunshine Coast online newspaper The Daily, about a group of 'Grey Nomads' who hire publicly owned places like school grounds to camp in:

Mike Kenavan said most of the group was retired with many planning longer trips "as the year goes on".

Some of the group members have been to, or are planning trips to, Glen Innis, Dysart, Nobby and Adelaide.

"We're extremely grateful for sites like this being made available, rather than going into commercial parks," he said.

Errol Thompson said while the sites were cheaper, it was a two-way street for the school.

"The school gets money from us hiring the school yard and they get unofficial caretakers acting as security for the site," he said.

Campervan Hire Perth

Here's an excerpt from great article in the Sydney Morning Herald, about a campervan road trip from Melbourne to Perth:

They said we'd never make it. They said we'd break down in the middle of nowhere, run out of water and if the unforgiving climate didn't kill us, the guy out of Wolf Creek or another Bradley John Murdoch would. But that didn't stop us setting off in a 1977 Volkswagen campervan sans air-conditioning for a trek across the Nullarbor Plain in blistering heat.

Despite the voices of doom, we lived to tell the tale. Alas, the Kombi didn't.

But it did make the 4000 kilometres from Melbourne to Perth, via the southern West Australian coast - and halfway back - without incident, and what an amazing road trip that made...
Read the rest here, including information about Balladonia, WA, where in 1979 the remains of NASA's Skylab came tumbling down -- the town museum still has pieces of Skylab on display.
