Tucked away on the western edge of the Kimberley, Broome is where the outback meets the beach. Vibrant aquamarine waters lap rugged, red-ochre cliffs while dazzling white-sand beaches brim with sunbathers and sunset camel rides.

Despite its tiny size, a steady stream of visitors gives this iconic Western Australian (WA) resort town a humming, near-cosmopolitan vibe. A slew of intriguing attractions lies peppered around town, and you won’t have to venture far to find a secluded slice of paradise.

As the only sizeable town for miles (and miles and miles) around, Broome is a logical starting point to explore Northwest WA in a campervan. Some of Australia’s most jaw-dropping coastlines and outback sites reside in this remote, far-flung region. And with excellent RV infrastructure—dump points, campgrounds, water refills, etc.—aplenty, a motorhome is the ideal way to explore. It's also possible to rent a motorhome in Broome and drop it off in Perth or in Darwin.

Broome Airport Campervan Hire

Can I hire a campervan at the airport in Broome?

While no campervan rental companies are directly at Broome airport, suppliers such as Britz, Maui and Apollo are located on McDaniel Road, a 5-minute drive from the airport.

The Self-drive Holiday in Broome

Renting a camper is the most convenient and cost-effective way to gallivant around Northwest WA. Here’s why:

  • Cheap: You won’t have to pay for transport and accommodation costs separately.

  • Convenient: There’s no need to return to your hotel as you can cruise to a nearby campsite once you’re done exploring for the day.

  • Flexible: Forget crafting complex travel itineraries. A motorhome lets you follow the whims of the road.

  • Sleep under the stars: Northwest WA has a multitude of mind-blowing campsites you can stay at overnight—it sure beats a stuffy hotel room.

  • Easy access: Everything you need is within arm’s reach, from fresh clothes to food.

When driving around Broome in a campervan rental, remember these helpful tips:

  1. All traffic moves on the left-hand side
  2. Seatbelts and child restraints are compulsory.
  3. Carry a valid driver's licence when travelling.
  4. Drive clockwise on roundabouts.
  5. There are no toll roads in Western Australia.
  6. Watch out for wildlife, especially around dawn, dusk and when travelling at night. Country roads and long stretches of the open road are notorious for crossing wildlife.
  7. The blood alcohol content limit in WA is 0.05%.
  8. The default speed limits in Western Australia are 50 km/h for built-up residential areas and up to 110 km/h for roads in rural areas unless indicated otherwise. School zones also have speed limits reduced to 40 km/h during certain hours on school days. Always pay attention to posted speed limit signs and adjust your speed accordingly.

Travel Tips for Broome

How can you save money on a campervan holiday in Broome?

Savvy travellers can reduce their daily expenses even further with the following thrifty tips:

  • Book early: Broome is in hot demand during the high season (May-Sep). Book your vehicle early to snag the best possible rate.

  • Avoid school holidays: WA school holidays entail massive demand for rental companies and holiday parks, which causes prices to soar.

  • Compare rates: Camper Champ compares prices from multiple rental companies to help you find a great deal.

  • Downsize: A petite budget-friendly campervan or basic 4WD will save you big bucks on rental fees.

  • Look for extras: Ensure added extras like levelling ramps and camping chairs are included in your rental rate, so you don’t have to buy them separately.

  • Plan a realistic itinerary: WA is enormous. Focusing on a smaller region and avoiding backtracking will save you stacks of fuel.

  • Head back to Broome: Dropping your camper off at the pick-up point works out cheaper than travelling one way.

  • Plan your refills: The PetrolSpy app gives you up-to-date information on the cost of fuel at every service station in the state.

  • Self-cater: Stock up at large supermarkets in major towns and cook your own meals.

  • Free camp: Find free campsites in-between destinations (there are plenty of rest areas alongside highways).

  • Consider a national park pass: It might work out cheaper than paying individually at each park.

  • Explore outdoors: Minimise tours and ticketed attractions. Hiking and swimming don’t cost a dime.

When is the best time to go campervanning in Broome?

Broome and the Kimberley have a hot/semi-arid tropical climate with a wet and dry season.

As you’ve probably guessed, the best time to visit is the dry season, which usually runs from May to October. Warm days, balmy evenings, and minimal rain ensure a pleasant campervan experience. The rest of the Kimberley has a similar climate, although some inland regions still get stifling hot during the day.

June to August are the best months when you can expect average daily temperatures of around 29°C / 14°C.

The wet season (Nov-Apr) sees few visitors in Broome, which means lower rental rates. However, you’ll have to contend with regular rainfall, lacklustre nightlife, and heightened humidity. The heaviest downpours occur between January to March. Avoid travelling across the Kimberley during the wet season, as even the paved highways may become inaccessible.

The climate becomes less tropical as you travel down the west coast. Nonetheless, the ideal travel season remains almost the same. Aim to explore hotspots like Ningaloo, Coral Bay, and Shark Bay between March and October, which entail sunny but not-too-hot days and comfortable nights.

If you’re keen to see Western Australia’s spectacular wildflowers, the peak blooming season runs between July and October. Cape Range National Park is your best bet to spot colourful floral fields in Northwest WA.

For travellers seeking to swim with whale sharks, late March to late July is the best time to visit Exmouth—May offers the most frequent sightings.

How long do you need in Broome for a campervan holiday?

Allow two or three days to soak up the magic of Broome and check out the top sites in town.

About a month is the ideal timeframe for a comprehensive Kimberley itinerary. However, if you focus on the highlights and stick close to the highway, you could enjoy an epic outback adventure in one or two weeks. The same timeframe also works if you’re tackling the rugged Gibb River Road in a 4WD.

Exploring the western coastal route down to Shark Bay is doable in 10 to 14 days. Whittle down your itinerary or add extra time if you want to tack on a detour via Karijini National Park.

While you could explore further south than Shark Bay, you’d have to drive all the way back or pay a hefty one-way drop-off fee. For reference, Broome to Monkey Mia (Shark Bay) is an 18-hour one-way drive.

Parking a Campervan in Broome

Where are some of the best places to park a campervan in Broome?

As Broome is a small and fairly spread out town, there’s no shortage of places to park. Best of all, parking is free everywhere in the city—you even get two hours free at the airport.

Some bays in the Chinatown district have time limits ranging from 15 minutes to 3 hours. Unrestricted parking bays lie scattered around the rest of the city. See the Shire of Broome parking map if you’re struggling to find a suitable spot.

The visitor centre has several large parking bays suitable for big motorhomes. Travellers are welcome to leave their rigs there all day.

Vehicle break-ins frequently occur in Broome, even during the day. Park your camper in more densely populated areas, and don’t leave it unattended for too long.

Where can you park a campervan overnight in Broome?

Some of the top-rated Broome holiday parks include Cable Beach Caravan Park, Tarangau Caravan Park, and RAC Cable Beach Holiday Park. When supply outstrips demand in peak season, overflow campgrounds pop up at the Seventh Day Adventist Church and Broome Pistol Club.

Expect to pay between $40 and $60 per night for a site or more if you want power or water hookups.

The Shire of Broome strictly prohibits free camping within city limits and allocates rangers to enforce its by-laws. What’s more, after-dark crime should be enough to deter you from parking overnight on a public street.

The closest rest area to the city is the Roebuck Rest Stop, a 30-minute drive away. However, rest areas are intended to manage fatigue rather than camp. Some budget travellers visit the free camp at Willie Creek (a 37-minute drive from Broome), although soft sand makes access tricky in a 2WD.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of licence do you need to hire a campervan in Broome?

You’ll need a full, non-restricted Class C (car) license to rent a campervan or motorhome in Broome. That means learners and provisional license holders need not apply. Most Broome rental companies won’t do business with drivers under 21. Drivers under 25 can hire a camper but must pay an additional young driver surcharge. Overseas hirers will need an English translation of their home-country license or an International Driver’s Permit (IDP).

Is after-hours campervan hire available?

Not many campervan rental companies in Australia allow customers to pick up and/or drop off a rental after hours.

Spaceships have an easy after-hours pickup and dropoff service.

The following companies also allow after-hours pickup or drop-off, but fees and additional terms may apply: Camperman, Mighty Campers, Awesome, Driveabout and Bargain Campers.

Note that this service may not be available in all cities.

Can I take my campervan off-road?

No, most companies will only allow their vehicles to be driven on sealed bitumen roads.

An exception is Bargain Campers, which allows their vehicles to be driven on unsealed (gravel) roads in Tasmania, as long as these roads are properly formed.

Rental companies may make an exception for well-maintained access roads to a recognized campsite. However, the distance allowed on these roads may vary (between 500 and 12 km). Check the rental agreement for details regarding the exact allowed distance.

Different rules may apply to 4WD campers.

Do campervans have automatic or manual transmission?

Most rental companies have both automatic and manual vehicles available.

Our comparison tool allows you to filter by transmission type to help you find your preferred option.

Note that not all makes and models will be available in both automatic and manual transmission types.

Can additional drivers be added to the campervan rental agreement?

Yes, it’s standard for most campervan rental companies to allow an additional driver. This driver and any others must be named on the rental agreement, and there may be a nominal fee.

Additional drivers must also hold an appropriate driver’s licence and must meet driver age requirements.

Do I have to pay a bond (security deposit) when renting my vehicle?

When renting a vehicle, it is standard to be charged a bond (security deposit), also known as ‘excess’, which is the amount the renter is liable to cover in the event of an accident or damage to the vehicle.

The bond amount fluctuates based on the insurance package selected at the time of rental and is charged and debited on the renters’ credit or debit card.

Note: policies vary from supplier to supplier. Always check the T&Cs for your rental.
