14 Epic van life set ups to discover Australia in
There’s nothing quite like saying screw it and hitting the open road with only a general plan of where you want to go. Even better is if you have nowhere you need to be by a certain time or date meaning you can just fly by the seat of your pants. So if you could take off tomorrow, where would you head? Where in Australia has been on your bucket list since forever or that you thought, ‘It’s okay, I’ll get there one day when I’m old and wrinkly’.
The truth is that there’s so much to see in Australia, from the watering hole topped waterfalls of the Northern Territory through to the white sand beaches of the Whitsundays. You’ve got desert, rainforest and beaches all within close proximity of one another while feeling worlds away. Why would you want to delay all that?
From shorter style long weekends away through to longer sabbatical sojourns, here are some epic vans set ups that are giving us serious wanderlust vibes...
