Generally, rental campers may only be driven on sealed bitumen roads. Different restrictions may apply for 4WD vehicles, depending on the rental supplier. Despite being in the outback, many of the roads around the Northern Territory and Darwin are well maintained and sealed.
It should be noted that even with these restrictions, many of the popular tourist attractions are still accessible. The Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park and the road to Alice Springs all have access via well-maintained sealed roads.
For 4WD vehicles, a daily mileage allowance usually applies (around 300 km), thereafter additional fees will apply.
The comparison tool will show you which vehicles have unlimited kilometres and which have restricted mileage. Consult the rental agreement of the supplier for further details.
Some 4WD campers are equipped with a roof tent and self-inflating sleeping mats. This means that the vehicle doesn't have sleeping space inside. Instead, a tent is mounted on top of the campervan, which then can be set up for overnight camping.
For example the Britz Safari 4WD Camper (based on a Toyota Landcruiser) is mounted with a double-bed rooftop tent. The tent also has an annex with space for up to three more persons.
Other 4x4 campervan rental models have a pop up roof (pop-top campers) allowing for beds to located within the motorhome itself.
Note: policies vary from supplier to supplier. Always check the T&Cs for your rental.
