Buying your first motorhome is a thrill — it’s the satisfaction of finding the perfect vehicle and the excitement about future adventures. But inevitably, people’s needs and tastes change, and so buying your second (or third) motorhome comes with the question of what to do with your existing vehicle.

Roughly halfway between Sydney and Melbourne, at the junction of the Sturt and Newell Highways in New South Wales, you’ll find Narrandera Shire, an agricultural town rich with more than crops and wool production. Fuelled by the Murrumbidgee River, the region is made even more charming with its tree-lined streets and heritage buildings.

From my vantage point at Two Figs Winery, at the top of the Mount Coolangatta foothill, Shoalhaven Heads is like something out of a children’s fairytale.

Green rolling hills, vast golden fields dotted with cows and horses, rows of vines, and a river winding through the middle of it.

More than just a convenient halfway point between Australia’s biggest cities, the NSW high country town of Tumbarumba is a wonderful destination in its own right, particularly for the caravan and motorhome crowd.

Its low-cost campsites are amongst the best you'll encounter, and you'll be richer for the decision to veer off the rather mind-dumbing Hume Highway. But Tumbarumba doesn't stop with great parks for motorhomers. It also offers to interesting history, wonderful local produce, award-winning wine, coffee as good any city barista can muster and a bounty of surrounding natural wonders.

The Mid West coast of Western Australia is full of colour, grand sweeping landscapes and wonderful people. It’s a destination where you’ll definitely want to linger longer.

The beaches here, so isolated they are nesting havens for rare birds, have to be some of the best kept secrets in coastal camping in the country. While the region once relied so heavily on the fishing industry and mining, tourism is now its much-needed economic mainstay.

Easily one of the most pristine and isolated stretches of the NSW coastline, the Sapphire Coast has an excellent mix of quiet bush camps, tranquil lagoons, wild surf beaches, and colourful towns.

Located halfway between Melbourne and Sydney, and stretching roughly from Bermagui down to the Victorian border, this region is perfect for those travelling in a motorhome.
