If you hire a campervan from Sydney, you have a long list of day trips and road trips to choose from.
Wineries and vineyards, misty mornings, artisan food, scenic country lanes, and charming historic villages, the Hunter Valley is worth at least two days of your time.
Stunning gardens, antiques, rolling green hills, misty valleys, historic mansions, waterfalls and a diverse choice of bush walks, the country grandeur of the Southern Highlands is worth at least a day of your time.
With wildlife parks, beaches, museums, national parks, camping, and some beautiful walks, the Central Coast is a great family day trip.
Newcastle is one of Australia's most under-rated cities. It has blossomed from its industrial beginnings into a laid-back surf mecca with historic charm and great bars and restaurants. Port Stephens is the dolphin capital of Australia and here you'll find near-deserted beaches, turquoise waters, national parks, and an extensive sand dune system.
An endless choice of bush walks, waterfalls, sandstone cliffs that change colour in the shifting light, cockatoos and other wildlife, the smell of eucalypts, breath-taking views, towering tree ferns, blazing autumn colours, and charming mountain villages, the Blue Mountains can be visited in one day, but it begs to be more thoroughly explored.

Enjoy daily swims in the ocean, sweeping sandy beaches, kangaroos, seals, whale watching, dolphins, beach camps, fishing, surfing, and a relaxed barefoot lifestyle.
Climb mountains, taste cool climate wines, experience the culture, excellent museums and year round festivities of Australia's capital city Canberra. Eat local produce straight from the orchards, walk among spring blossoms or the changing colours of autumn. This route rejoins the coast in Victoria and includes Wilsons Prom, Phillip Island and the Mornington Peninsula.
The golden plains and granite boulders of the Monaro plain are a photogenic entry to the rugged beauty of the Snowy Mountains. twisted snow gums, prairies, alpine flowers, fresh brooks, and a myriad of bush walking trails make the Snowy Mountains a must visit if you wish to experience the diversity of Australia's landscapes.
The South Coast of New South Wales is a mosaic of protected forests, waterways, quiet beaches, crystal clear waters, white sand, and spectacular coastline. The longer you spend, the more you'll unwind to this laid-back and fun loving coastal lifestyle. Surf, kayak, bush walk, swim, dive, or just laze on the sand.

The journey to Broken Hill is one of wide open plains, big skies, all-encompassing sunsets, art, emus, kangaroos, and the unique colours of the Australian outback. Broken Hill itself is an outback town of historic wooden pubs and lots of art. This can be undertaken as a Sydney to Adelaide 'outback' road trip.

The 1,300 km stretch of coast between Brisbane and Sydney is a magical place of lush river valleys, seaside towns, dramatic coastlines, wide sweeping beaches and the ever-present Pacific Ocean. It's worthy of a two week road trip, or longer, so take your time, enjoy the vibe of each new place, and gather memories that will last a lifetime.
