What Makes Australia Special for Campervan Travelers?

Campervan travelers are like kings of the rough road. They seek out what their heart desires – an awesome place to visit. Campervan travelers drive for hours and days. They are hungry for the spectacular adventures they will encounter in their journey. Perhaps, these campervan travelers are always enticed by the bigger continents like Europe. Most often, people think that the bigger things always have the best. This notion might be bunked if campervan travelers have found their way in Australia. Though Australia is the smallest continent, and a remote place, you can actually see great wonders. Here are the reasons that make Australia so special for campervan travelers.

It is the home of the Great Barrier Reef.

As campervan travelers, we always want to see something out of the natural. The Great Barrier Reef found inside the waters of the Coral Sea within the territory of Queensland, Australia is an Australian beauty with an exotic touch of the nature. It is composed of a series of small reefs of different varieties and colors that stretch at an amazing 2000 kilometer border.

Get out from your campervan and have a close up sight of the Great Barrier Reef. It is very abundant in marine life. If you set out off the sea, you can see several kinds of marine life such as those colorful fishes, the hungry and frightening sharks, the speedy turtles (when in water), and the Great Barrier Reef’s most awesome attraction, the reef itself.

It is the home of the giant rock – Uluru.

Why would campervan travelers waste their time for a rock? Uluru, otherwise known as the Ayers Rock is not your typical rock. If you happen to have a drive with your campervan around the Northern territory of central Australia, you may catch a glimpse of the giant rock, Uluru. It is not a mountain or a hill. It is a large sandstone rock formation that amazingly covers 8 km of land. If you will take a closer look at Uluru, you will notice that it exudes colors of red and orange during sunrise and sunset. It is like a solidified desert in the form of a giant rock.

Campervan travelers and other visitors from around the world can climb the giant rock, but be sure not to dirty the place. The giant rock is a sacred thing for the aborigines in the area.

It is the home of delicious barbecues.

Australia is not only known for its natural wonders. Their food is also excellent, especially barbecues. The Aussies love holding barbecue picnics, and it is already their tradition. There are several barbecue stands in Australia, and the selection is very vast. From meat, vegetables, to seafood, campervan travelers will surely enjoy stuffing their stomachs with good food.

If you want to throw a little barbecue party, you might as well catch your own ingredients. Since Australia is an abundant source of marine life, you may go fishing. Campervan travelers who love the aquatic sceneries never forget to bring their own fishing tackle. The Bay of Plenty in New Zealand is just one of Australia’s top places to throw a seafood barbecue feast.

What makes Australia special for campervan travelers do not end here. There are actually a lot of reasons why campervan travelers need to pay their visit in the little Australian continent.
