In Australia, we often refer to camping as “roughing it”. That’s because you sacrifice some luxuries and live “rough” in bush land for a few days. In most cases, camping involves pitching a tent in the bush with no toilet, shower or running water. If all you have is your tent, then yes camping really is “roughing it”. But our campervan rental in Western Australia, gives you many creature comforts to enjoy.
So if you are thinking of going camping but don’t want to rugged it up or tow anything? then, we have the PERFECT camper for you.
Platinum campervans are very popular! They are compact, easy to drive and can transport 2 people in comfort. These campervans have a great layout and luxury fittings like a Reverse Cycle Air-Condition, Big Comfy Bed and Kitchenette; just to name a few! You’ll be surprised at what can be sensibly squeezed into such small spaces – and all the comforts of home.
If pack-up-and-go touring appeals, and the idea of towing makes you uncomfortable, then this campervan will have everything you need for a weekend getaway or longer extended stays.

Esperance is located in a beautiful coastal setting with plenty of activities for all travelers, fishing from the jetty is a popular pastime and there are plenty of beaches to the east of town for 4WD enthusiasts to enjoy.

Move on further up and get your first taste of a working mine town at Newman, the mine tour is a must do and lets you see what all the fuss is about iron ore production, and what it takes to get it! Turn of the inland highway and head into Karijini National Park, with spectacular gorges cutting their way through some of the oldest rock formations on the planet Karijini is amazing.

Karijini National Park is a tough environment, check with local authorities before heading out and make sure you know your limitations before taking one of the Gorge walks. With swimming holes like Circular Pool, Fortesque Falls and Fern Pool, the eastern gorges have a range of options. the western side has something for the more adventure seeking, plus Hancock Gorge. After taking at least three days to sample what Karijini National Park has to offer, pack up and start the trek west to Exmouth and Cape Range National Park where you will find the Ningaloo Reef. Located so close to the beach you can swim over Coral and see Turtles less than 20 feet from the shore, Ningaloo Reef is the largest fringing reef on the western side of land in the world. Stay in one of Exmouth’s Caravan Parks with BIG4 Exmouth Cape Holiday Park offering a relaxing stay or head out to Cape Range National Park for more rustic camp options. All in season, you can see Turtles on the laying beaches, Whales and calves in Exmouth Gulf or one of the few places in the world to swim with the biggest fish in the ocean, Whale Sharks of the Ningaloo Reef. Take in the view from the lighthouse look out, swim at Turquoise Bay (watch out for the current) or take a tour of Yardie Creek, there really is something for all visitors. As you head south, spread your time along the reef and visit the settlement of Coral Bay, Peoples Park Caravan Village and Bayview Coral Bay both offer a variety of accommodation. Situated right on the edge of Bills Bay this is the place to swim with Manta Rays, head out on a Coral viewing boat, walk the beach or take a quad bike tour along the coast and catch the sunset. When it is time to head south again make sure you take time to stop in Carnarvon and Geraldton on the way, then start planning your trip back up north to see some more amazing places!!
Always best to use a recognised campsite. These are of good quality with communal barbeque area’s, kitchens, laundry, power and water supplies, some even have a swimming pool. There are some free sites around Wa, just ask. It really isn’t a good idea to camp just anywhere, for one, the rangers will move you on and secondly, you are on holiday, be safe.
The auxiliary battery which powers the rear of the van needs to be kept charged. We have fitted voltage indicators on all of our vans now for easy monitoring. Rule of thumb says if not plugged into mains and you have the fridge running and a few lights on the battery will last the night. You then need to either plug in or drive to recharge. Remember, this is the battery for the rear, it will not affect your engine starting.
At Campaboutoz we try and include everything in the rental price, from linen to outdoor table and chairs, even a side awning. Look at the vehicle details on site for more information.
For all of our vehicles a normal driving licence is fine. If your licence is in a foreign language, get an international licence, this is inexpensive and saves time.
Campaboutoz is a West coast company and whilst we will allow vehicles to travel pretty much anywhere on the mainland, please tell us if you intend to travel crazy distances. The main thing to remember is 2 wd vehicles must stay on sealed roads, to travel off the beaten track you need to pay more money and hire one of our 4 wd vehicles.
Our standard excess/bond is $3500. If you choose not to reduce this we will take this amount at the point of hire and return it at the end. If you reduce this amount to our minimum $500 excess, we will take a total bond of $1000 again, to be returned at the end of the rental.
Yes please refer to our Terms and conditions.
In the unfortunate and rare occasion that you might have a fault on the van, all our vehicles are covered by the Rac and you will be supplied their contact details at handover.
To extend the hire just ring us and as long as the van has not already been booked, you can just pay for the extra days.

You were so helpful, patient and honest in your answers. We will definitely be returning and we be recommending you to all our friends. You guys are the best!!
We had the best camping trip to Albany last weekend with the family. Our very first camping trip and cant wait for the next. Very clean and modern Caravan and friendly service. I highly recommend Campabout OZ.
You saved our holiday! Our original hire vehicle was very shabby inside and broke down on us 3 times just 30km from home. We were left stranded at the roadside and their assistance company just didn’t assist! We just about made it back home. You gave up your ‘spare’ vehicle for us and we cannot thank you enough for your kindness and going above and beyond. Your vehicles are immaculate and stocked with brand new essentials. We can set off now and have the trip we’ve been planning for months. Thank you doesn’t begin to cover how grateful we are
