Make your trip a special road trip Down Under. The Rocks is the oldest part of Sydney. There are narrow streets, noble colonial buildings, sandstone churches and probably the oldest pubs in the country. Back in the 70s, everything was demolished here to build modern high-rise buildings, but citizens' initiative could fortunately prevent this and thus preserve the charm of this district. The markets taking place here at the weekend, art museums, street entertainment and the delicious restaurants, as well as the view of the harbour and the opera house, make the Rocks one of the most interesting districts of the city.

The Sydney Mint was built between 1811 and 1816 and is the oldest public building in the Sydney Central Business District. The Sydney Tower, viewing and television tower, was the tallest tower when it opened in 1981, and is still the second tallest freestanding building in all of Australia. The first European colonization took place in Sydney in 1788.
The capital Canberra is located 177 miles south of Sydney and if you continue driving to the east, you will have reached Melbourne after driving a total of 544 miles. A stretch of this length with several intermediate stops can be easily covered with a suitable campervan hire in Sydney. Numerous national parks, as well as Wilson's Promontory and Phillip Island, known for its small penguin colonies, are on the way.
The rugged coast between the two metropolises will most certainly inspire you. Enjoy fresh seafood that you can prepare yourself in your campervan. Relax at Jervis Bay on its white sand beaches. You will pass by lush farms, stunning national parks, numerous beaches and lakes. A little further away, 572 miles to the north, to be more precise, is Brisbane. On your trip you can enjoy the beauty of the outback and the impressive nature far from the big cities. Discover the most eastern part of the country Byron Bay. Remember on your trip that petrol stations can be rare in some places and refuel sooner rather than later.
