All our campervan, motorhome and RV rental models come with:
With 300 days of sunshine each year, Townsville is known as the dry tropics. The region’s diverse landsapes range from the majestic granite boulders of Magnetic Island to the lush rainforests of Paluma National Park, and sweeping northern beaches such as Balgal Beach.
From Townsville you can snorkel or dive the Great Barrier Reef, scuba dive shipwrecks, campervan out to hiking trails, or drive it onto the ferry to explore the history and turquoise bays of Magnetic Island. For a day tour in your campervan, visit the historic outback ghost town of Charters Towers, or drive north to enjoy the pristine beauty of Hinchinbrook Island. In Townsville you can kayak Ross River, visit the world’s largest living coral reef aquarium, wine and dine your way along Palmer St, try your luck at the casino, and stroll the beachfront promenade.
Catch the sea breezes at Rowes Bay Caravan Park. The BIG4 Walkabout Palms is a little outside Townsville but is family friendly with a jumping pillow, play ground, resort style pool, pedal karts and a games room.
Most of these day drives and day trips from Townsville will have you back in town by evening so you can base yourself in Townsville if you wish. But having a campervan gives you the flexibility to stay wherever you like. For this reason we list the best camping in each destination.
We've listed 10 road trips out of Townsville which range in distance from a short 1 day drive to Airlie Beach to a complete circumnavigation of Australia. One of the good things about renting a campervan from Camperman is that you can drop it off at one of our other depots such as Airlie Beach, Cairns, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne or Adelaide.
