Tips for driving a campervan in Sydney

There's a skill in tackling the busy streets of Sydney in a campervan. Luckily, once you're out of the city, there's just open roads and winding coastal routes to think about. Here are a few tips to nailing those first moments in your campervan:

  • Try to time the collection of your campervan with off-peak traffic hours. Driving in Sydney can be nerve-racking enough without having to contend with city traffic.
  • Sydney's infamous toll roads are almost impossible to miss. Before you set off, make sure you know where each one is and how to pay the toll charge. To pass over Sydney Harbour Bridge, you'll need an electronic pass, but most companies will already have this installed in their rentals. Some companies do charge administrative fees for using toll roads, so you may want to read the fine print to see whether it's worth changing up your route to avoid tolls.
  • Hiring a GPS through your rental company can make navigating the city's winding roads a little easier. Plus it may remind you of the speed limits and any hazards to look out for.
  • Once you hit the country and outback, keep a lookout for wandering 'roos, wallabies, wombats and deer. Species are especially active at night and are attracted to headlights. Some rental companies won't insure you at night because of this. Make sure to check your insurance before you head off.
  • Avoid dirt roads unless you have the right 4WD campervan, skills and relevant insurance to do so.
