Western Australia's vast landscapes seem almost made to be explored on four wheels and Broome is an ideal starting point. You'll get to enjoy sunsets on Cable Beach, the natural phenomenon of the Staircase to the Moon and the chance to spot the rare snubfin dolphin off the coast. Broome is also the gateway to the wild Kimberley region, so it's a tough destination to beat for the caravan crazed.

Find out all you need to know about campervan hire in Broome, including where to book, some top tips and frequently asked questions to get you started.

Campervan hire locations in Broome

You'll find most campervan hire companies located in Broome's city centre. Broome's airport is located right in the city so if you're flying in to pick up a vehicle, you'll be close to most locations.

Tips for driving a campervan in Broome

  • 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.
  • The roads in remote locations can flood during the wet season and it's best to wait until waters recede before passing.
  • 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.
  • The dry season months from May to October are the busiest, so make sure to book well in advance.
  • Consider renting a campervan with cooking and camping equipment included as accommodation gets scarce the further you get from Broome.
  • Avoid driving at night, sunset and sunrise as animals tend to wander on the road during these times.
