Though not to so known to many, it’s a fact that one of the prime attractions of living in Brisbane is the extreme easiness it offers to escape from the city and get into the heavenly glory of nature. Perhaps this is why it is one those few cities on earth that are best recommended for campervan rental holidays.
Begin Your Memorable Journey outside the City
Book your campervan hire Brisbane online well before you arrive in the city, so you can make the most of your time in exploring its touristy delights. Upon arrival, you may travel your four-wheels for about half an hour in any direction from the CBD and you will start seeing horses grazing in paddocks, cart wheels and cow shaped letter boxes. You will also find the smell of the sea fills in the air.
Such scenarios are not common to most cities in the world. For example, it takes more than an hour and half to go away from the red brick houses when you drive from Sydney’s CBD. Melbourne too has almost endless landscapes of suburbia stretching in all directions. Similarly, in the foreign counterparts like New York, London and Paris, it really takes a hardy soul to make a short gateway.
Drive your van in the ease for few minutes and you will reach in Tingalpa & Capalaba, which make a perfect destination for weekend day-outs. With horses, odd cow and closely located small towns offering taste-tingling cuisine and geese, Tingalpa & Capalaba will add a host of unforgettable memories to your road trip.
Another stop is Cleveland which is home to a historical lighthouse, heritage train and the oldest pub of the state. This is a place where you can tuck into freshly cooked prawns and enjoy a sip of beer together while letting the sea water lap at your feet. Bestowed with the wonderful marine and a soothing foreshore walk, Wynnum Manly too is a great place to stop by and soak up the beauty of the nature.
Next, you may head down to the northern bay suburbs of Redcliffe, Sandgate and Shorncliffe. These places are known for their historical British style coastal villages, rock pools, Spanish Mission bathing sheds, ship wreck, jetties and pelicans.
Depart for the south east and you will reach at Victoria Point, from where you can board a ferry to the CoochieMudlo Island – an island that is home to unspoilt and stunning white sandy beaches.
If not short on time, you may head north on Dayboro Rd and reach in a charming Old Petrie Town. Just a short jump down the road is the postcard perfect historical country hamlet of Dayboro, which is also a major gateway to Mt Mee best known for its timber mill relics, piccabeen palm and eucalypt forest trails.
If you drive your campervan about 20 minutes in the west from the city centre, you will reach the elegant Samford Valley flaunting its incredible country style with town centre, museum, café in church, and rail trails.
And did I say about Ipswich? It is just one half hour down the Western Freeway & Ipswich Motorway. Here you will find picturesque parks, retro-style cafes, stone churches, and bushwalk trail – all with its jaw-dropping views.
