Road Trip

Consider visiting a regional town or two on your next road trip holiday.

Many of Australia’s country towns have thriving tourism industries featuring experiences of food, wine, craft brews and distilleries, boutique shopping and more.

The people are friendly and they are ready to welcome tourists. 

Country people are used to a slower pace than city folk which reflects in their friendliness and hospitality. 

Strike up a conversation with the locals and you’re sure to appreciate their charm. The wonderful people are just one of many reasons to head to the regions on your next road trip. 

While the beaches in Australia are top-notch, the scenery that will greet you when you head inland is stunning. 

You can find national parks interwoven among picturesque towns waiting to welcome you. 

Travelling in an Apollo campervan or motorhome, you can do it all, enjoying the scenery of the road, stopping for nature walks, and making the most of the towns you pass. 

Regional towns provide unique environments with rich histories and allow you to support the townsfolk and their businesses. 

Rural Australia doesn’t get as much love as coastal Australia.

It’s common to build a holiday around a beach destination. 

By not skipping the countryside, you discover hidden gems and help to support these towns, which rely on tourism dollars greatly. 

Largely comprised of small businesses, you’ll find delicious home-style bakeries, cool craft breweries, artisan galleries and boutiques, cosy guesthouses and novel tourist experiences dotted throughout country Australia.

So, when you take your motorhome holiday with Apollo, weave some country towns into your route. 

Top town suggestions:

  • Stanthorpe, QLD – Both the coldest place in Queensland and its apple capital.
  • Tamworth, NSW – Country music festival and the Big Guitar.
  • Bright, VIC – Scenery and swimming holes.
  • Jugiong, NSW – Visit the recently renovated historic country pub The Sir George, built in 1852.
