Why Autumn is a great time to visit Australia

Events and festivals are plentiful during Autumn in Australia, and the cooler weather means it’s a wonderful time to enjoy everything it has to offer whether it’s food, wine or culture that tickles your fancy.

It’s an ideal time to take a self-drive holiday to see outdoor attractions as well, as mild weather makes vehicle travel a lot more comfortable.

Top Destinations to visit during Autumn in Australia

New South Wales

Orange

The city of Orange is all about wine, food and enjoying the good life. Take a drive through the vibrant town, populated with a multitude of cafes and restaurants serving some of the best meals you’ll find anywhere.

Once you’ve parked your motorhome up at one of the local caravan parks, take a walk through the back streets and you'll soon find yourself on one of the many beautiful walks including the gorgeous Orange Heritage Trail.

Finish off your evening at one of the many relaxing pubs, sipping a beer and soaking up the atmosphere. If you're here around April check out the Orange Food Week.

 

 

Sapphire Coast

With estuaries, lagoons and beaches littered around this coastline, you’ll find plenty of water activities to enjoy from kayaking to marine cruises. With motorhome campsites right by the waters edge you are in a perfect spot for it all.

There is family fun to be had on land as well including fantastic mountain bike trails if you fancy strapping the bikes on the back of the motorhome.

If you are more of a foodie, try out the award-winning locally caught oysters.

 

South Australia

Clare Valley

For all you foodies, the Clare Valley is the place for you. With fine wine, food and views, the charming Clare Valley will not disappoint.

Situated just north of Adelaide towards Port Augusta, give yourself the time the Clare Valley deserves for a truly delicious adventure.

With many campervan parks to choose from you have the choice of motorhome parks right near the wine region or even nestled in beautiful farmlands.

We recommend heading down to the old railway station, better known as Mount Horrocks Winery and grabbing yourself an award-winning Riesling before heading over to Skillogalee’s magnificent restaurant.

 

 

 

Northern Territory

Although tempting to visit in winter, we recommend an autumn motorhome adventure through the red centre. While the nights in winter can be sharp, dropping far lower than most people expect, an autumn adventure brings the best of both worlds.

If you want to be truly immersed in nature there are motorhome campsites in quiet bush settings as well as sites in National parks.

With cooler days and mild nights, get started on your bucket list and park under the stars under the gaze of the truly inspiring Uluru.

 

Tasmania

Strahan

This gorgeous, and light-hearted seaside town is one of Tasmania’s best-kept secrets. Acting as both an attraction in its own right, as well as the gateway to the wild South-West Wilderness, Strahan has a place in many people’s hearts across our stunning country.

Grab a spot at a beachside caravan park and treat yourself to a cruise across the water over to Bonnet Island to find the penguins at dusk, or travel upstream towards Hogarth Falls for a tranquil bushwalk.

 

Victoria

Bright

A truly stunning place, Bright, the gateway to the high country sits nestled in a stunning valley surrounded by picture-perfect mountains and gorgeous walks.

Take your Maui motorhome to one of the best places to visit in Victoria in Autumn, the nearby summit of Mount Buffalo which shows a truly commanding view of this gorgeous area.

When you are ready to stretch your legs, stroll along the stunning river and head to the Bright Brewery and watch the sunset behind the mountains with a cold local brew in your hand.  

 

 

 

Western Australia

The Kimberley

If you are looking for a remote location to take the camper during the Australian Autumn, look no further than The Kimberley. This huge region boasts waterfalls, ancient Aboriginal rock art and hot springs.

Autumn is the dry season and nights inland can fall near freezing, so reserving a powered site at a campervan park ahead of time will help you to stay warm on those chilly nights.

You can’t leave this wildlife haven without experiencing some of the incredible tourism activities like camel rides on the coastline and epic 4wd adventures.

 

 

Ningaloo Reef

This world heritage listed reef is home to turtles, manta rays, 500 species of tropical fish, and is even visited by whale sharks over the Autumn season and through to July.

This makes the area perfect for snorkelling and swimming with wildlife, kayaking or cruising in a glass-bottom boat.

With caravan parks available in the surrounding areas of Carnarvon, Coral Bay & Exmouth you’ll be free to stretch your legs and enjoy this marine lovers reef.

Queensland

Gold Coast

One of Queensland’s most well-known tourist spots, the Gold coast is known for its sandy beaches and holiday parks, but it has so much more to offer motorhome travellers.

Driving the motorhome inland and you will find beautiful national parks such as Springbrook national park where you can enjoy spotting nocturnal wildlife during evening tours or head to a wildlife park.

If you fancy a bit of relaxation time the Gold Coast also has award-winning spa’s and loads of golf courses so pack your clubs in the motorhome, or rent your gear and tee off.

With plenty of motorhome parks dotted along the coast and inland, there is something for every type of traveller.
