The cost of your campervan hire will vary depending on the size, amenities, inclusion, age of the vehicle and length of your booking.

When is the best time to hire a campervan in Broome?

The best time to visit Broome is between April and October. This is the dry season, which boasts warm temperatures and minimal rainfall. We recommend you avoid school holiday periods as those weeks tend to be the most expensive.

Are there any age restrictions to driving a campervan in Broome?

Many caravan hire companies have a minimum age requirement and some will have a young driver's surcharge for those under 25 years old.

Maui, Britz and Cheapa Campa will allow drivers from 21 years old with no surcharge.

Can you park a campervan anywhere in Broome?

No, it is illegal to park your campervan anywhere in Broome and fines apply for those who go against the rules. However, there are plenty of free camping areas where you can park up at no cost.

How long do I need to travel around Broome by campervan?

To travel the length of the coast from Broome to Perth takes around 7 days, similarly, Broome to the Kimberley via the Dampier Peninsula can be stretched to roughly 8 days.

In saying that, there are plenty of day trips to destinations including Cable Beach, Willie Creek, Horizontal Falls and Cape Leveque.

Do I need special campervan insurance?

Compulsory third party insurance will be included automatically in your rental rate to cover injuries to other people. Caravan insurance is usually available as an extra to cover vehicle damage.

Tips for driving a campervan in Broome

  • Check what sort of vehicle you need: Many campervan hire companies will not allow you to drive on unsealed roads such as Gibb River Road or in the Bungle Bungles. Make sure to review the restrictions of your campervan hire and consider a 4WD rental. Also consider renting a campervan with cooking and camping equipment included as accommodation gets scarce the further you get from Broome.
  • Be aware of the wet season: The roads in remote locations can flood during the wet season and it's best to wait until waters recede before passing.
  • Stock up on supplies: Shops can get pricey in remote areas, so try to load up on essentials before leaving Broome. Distances can be longer than you think and accidents happen, so make sure to top up on fuel and water whenever you can.
  • Be an early bird: The dry season months from May to October are the busiest, so make sure to book well in advance.
  • Drive during the day: Avoid driving at night, sunset and sunrise as animals tend to wander on the road during these times.
