Know the speed limit


It is 50 kph in urban areas, and between 10 to 40 kph in rural areas. Watch out for the road signs and remember that speed limits are in kilometres, not miles.

Know the toll roads
In Sydney, there are several toll roads. Payments can be done through an electronic pass or an E-Tag, and only a few accept cash. An electronic pass is highly recommended for tourists, while an E-Tag is a great option if you are planning a longer trip. You can get a pass or E-tag online .

Rest between long drives


Sydney is the largest cosmopolitan city in Australia, and driving around in a campervan or motorhome can be tiring. Fatigue sets in fairly quick, so remember to rest every two hours. Spend the night at a campground so you can be well rested for the long drives ahead. We have awesome Sydney Caravan Parks.
