You need to book campsites but it's so much more free and laidback. Each night can be spent in a different location without worrying about packing and forgetting things, because all your belongings are in your mobile home!
4. There are so many places to see.
Although it's small, there are so many beautiful places to see in all areas of the state. We were there for 9-10 days and still had to cut out some places we wanted to go such as Bay of Fires.
On our first drive to a supermarket, someone walking by indicating we were parked too much to one side. When we first filled up petrol, someone also came out from the store to help us as we had not filled up our campervan before.
The staff at The Pondering Frog were so nice and had plenty of recommendations of where to visit in Tassie!
Small things like that really contribute to your trip and make it that much more enjoyable.
7. The lack of stores forces you to be more independent.
You'll find some people will complain about the lack of stores in towns or how early everything closes. With a campervan, all you need is to stock up on groceries in your motorhome and you won't need to worry.
It also helped us spend less money.
8. The food is local, fresh and delicious.
When you do go out to eat, you can't resist that Tasmanian seafood. Delicious oysters everywhere at reasonable prices.
But even then we still had leftover storage space yet still didn't feel like the campervan was missing much. We even had a mini heater to battle those chilly nights.
10. It will be a tale to tell.
Not many people, or at least younger people, will tell you they've travelled around a state or Australia in a motorhome. We noticed campsites were often full of retired couples enjoying their free lives or tourists.
Hi, my husband and I plan to hire a campervan during our 10 day trip to Tasmania in December this year. Since we haven't hired or driven a campervan before, we have a lot of questions to ask and to be honest a little nervous. What would you say are the main or top things to keep in mind for first-timers? - Mel
