Known fondly as the “Top End” of Australia, Darwin has some of the most stunning sights in Australia within driving distance of the city. From Kakadu National Park to the Katharine Region three hours drive south, this part of Australia is definitely not one you want to skip.
There is a wide range of campervan and motorhome hire companies with depots in Darwin, so people can find a great option for any trip or budget. But the benefit to renting a motorhome is that you get everything you need for both popular and remote locations.
While Australia in general is known for it’s warm climate, Darwin and the surrounding Northern Territory stays hot all year round. But it can still get incredibly cold at night, especially in the desert, so finding a motorhome with heating and air conditions is a very good idea.
There are also a number of other motorhome hire details that should be checked before you start to book your trip. These include:
Another thing that may be important for adventurous travellers is whether or not the motorhome can be taken where you want to go. A lot of motorhomes are not designed to go off sealed or bitumen roads, so if you plan on seeing some of the more isolation sights around Darwin then it could be better to consider a 4WD option.
Some motorhome companies, like Apollo and Australian Campervans, also hire cars and other RVs and may even offer discounts if you want to hire both a motorhome and another vehicle. But no matter where you want to go or what you want to see, by checking the details first you will be able to find the best vehicle for your travel adventures in Darwin.
