When it comes to beachfront campsites, NSW is home to some incredible options to make your van travel truly unforgettable. Boasting prime locations, impressive views and family-friendly facilities, there are some true gems to stay at in a motorhome or campervan hire when travelling in NSW. To make road trip planning easier, we’ve detailed our top spots to stay at when you rent a travel van to explore New South Wales. Plus, with the Apollo rental branch conveniently located in Sydney near the airport, picking up and dropping off your travel van is a breeze.


Why you should visit NSW

If you're looking for a destination that has it all, New South Wales is a top contender. With its breathtaking coastal beauty, diverse landscapes, charming towns and vibrant cities, NSW is a perfect place to explore on a campervan holiday. There are so many great things to do in Sydney and don’t forget to venture further afield from the golden sands of Byron Bay to the picturesque Sapphire Coast. NSW beaches are some of the most stunning in Australia, boasting great holiday parks in prime beachfront locations.


The best way to explore NSW

When it comes to exploring NSW, there's no better way to do it than by hitting the road with an Apollo campervan hire. With a range of modern and well-equipped campervans, enjoy your journey in comfort and style. As well as this, travelling in a motorhome or campervan gives you the freedom and flexibility of enjoying the trip on your own time, without compromising on incredible accommodation locations. It's worth noting that while campervans are a great way to explore Australia, it's important to be mindful of where you take them as they can’t be driven on the sand.
