Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any restrictions when exploring the Northern Territory in a motorhome?

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.

Does my 4WD campervan rental include unlimited mileage?

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.

How does a rooftop tent work?

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.

Are there any restrictions on where I can take my 4WD rental vehicle?

Generally, 4WD vehicles can only be driven on recognised sealed tracks.

Exceptions can be made for some areas, however, permission is usually required in advance especially for any off-road areas.

In addition to unsealed roads, companies may restrict certain roads or trails with a reputation for being rough or rugged. If you take your vehicle into an area that is restricted you will be liable for all damages and in some cases will also have to pay a fine.

If unsure about a certain area, it’s best to contact the rental company in advance.

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

Darwin 4WD Campervan Tips

Do you need a 4WD camper to explore Darwin?

A 4WD is not required to explore the wonders of the great outback. In fact, 95% of the Northern Territory's attractions are accessible by 2WD vehicles, such as motorhomes and campervans, because of the extensive network of sealed highways. Motorhomes and campervans must strictly adhere to driving only on sealed roads.

If you are new to campervanning, visiting Darwin for the first time or travelling with family, we recommend using a motorhome or campervan. Getting around this way provides more flexibility.
