Camperman: Campervan Hire Australia

Gold Coast to Sydney Road Trip Itinerary

© Jeppe2011

Day 14 & 15: Hunter Valley to Sydney

If you have the time, detour west to take in world heritage listed Wollemi National Park and the Blue Mountains National Park. Both national parks have campervan-friendly campgrounds. There are so many hikes, and all of them so different from one another, that this route deserves two days.

Alternatively, head south for Sydney stopping at Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park for a stunning hike through forest, sandstone cliffs, and harbour views.

Wollemi & Blue Mountains Route

388 km | 5 hrs 42 mins driving time

Wollemi National Park is a world heritage listed valley of soaring cliffs, misty lakes, swamps, golden grasslands, ancient forests, glow worm tunnels, pagoda rock formations and fern gullies. There is campervan camping inside the park. See the map below.

The Blue Mountains is brimming with natural beauty and easily earns its UNESCO World Heritage status. It offers stunning scenery, excellent hikes, Aboriginal rock art, waterfalls, rivers, and sandstones cliffs that are perfect for canyoning, abseiling and climbing. There is campervan camping in the region. See the map below for campgrounds and attractions. 

Ku-ring-gai Chase and Brisbane Water Route

165 km | 2 hrs 10 mins driving time

Ku-ring-gai Chase  and Brisbane Water National Parks are just an hour north of Sydney but when you're walking here you'll feel a million miles away. Colored sandstone cliffs, woodlands, Aboriginal art, water views, wildflowers, birds, wildlife, a heritage lighthouse and the excellent, sometimes challenging, walks will remain in your memories long after you've left.
