Looking for the perfect escape? Kombi Lifestyle provides you with great holiday guides and information about scenic New South Wales, catered to holiday-makers thinking of a fun road trip adventure or a peaceful getaway in a cruisy recreational vehicle (and are insider tips). Our article A Weekend in the Blue Mountains – Road Trip Guide is the perfect starting point for the discerning traveller and is a fun and easy road trip experience (and we love the history that we discovered too)!
Enjoy one of Australia’s most iconic road trips. Take The Road Less Travelled to Byron Bay and find hidden gems; intriguing small towns, stunning scenic destinations where you can connect with nature, know what sites to see, what the sites offer, and feel a little smug that you’ve found these amazing destinations!

Our popular article A Guide to Wollombi Village and its Market, was also published by Visit Wollombi and The Weekender Travel (shorter versions). So if you’re looking for a popular scenic road trip adventure don’t miss this one!
For a variety of interesting, relaxing, adventurous and scenic stopping points take a Road Trip to Kangaroo Valley. From historic towns, temples, cosy eateries, waterfalls, walks, a showground and more, this drive can offer a mixture of history, adventure, nature and peacefulness.
The Best Scenic Drive for Campers highlights Tourist Drive 33, and traverses some of Australia’s most scenic country land, and if you enjoy camping, one campsite on this drive is free! It’s the perfect trip for the novice or experienced camper. And at the end of this drive – if you venture on, this is a vast area to explore, during the summertime in the Hunter Valley you’ll see vibrant lush vineyards!
If you’re travelling from overseas, what a great experience, especially when the hard work is already done for you. We’ve travelled to these scenic destinations a number of times in a variety of vehicles and we have listed and written about the most popular things to see and do, and places to eat.
If you prefer the beach see our Umina Beach guide, and for a beach and bushland experience, see our Patonga article. And if you have a few weeks to travel – why not try all three amazing camper trips; Patonga (Peaceful Patonga Outdoor Fun), Umina Beach (The Ultimate RV and Campervan Beach Holiday) and the Hunter Valley – Tourist Drive 33 (The Best Scenic Drive for Campers).
We have not only included holiday guides and information; places where you can book campsites or hotels (through the associated company website links) – but you can also view the best hire cars and campervans and book your favourite here too – scroll to the bottom of the page to have a preview! Also having links on a website to sites, festivals, markets, cafes and restaurants, walking tracks etc, makes researching and organising a holiday so much easier!
In many of our guides, we’ve included festival or market event details. Festivals and markets can really make a weekend away or a holiday so much fun! They are also a great way to support local communities. One particular festival not to be missed, especially if you like Kombis, is the Old Bar Beach Festival!
Another fun festival for a camping road trip destination is the St Albans Folk Festival. Be surrounded by music, nature and more music. Set on the banks of the Macdonald River, enjoy this historic town and take part in musical storytelling or just absorb the festive atmosphere.
And we’ll also help prepare you for life on the road in Australia, see below for VW latest accessories, perhaps buy yourself a fantastic gift, or maybe purchase that unique gift for somebody special! Perfect for trips away! You’ll be sure to travel in style and have fun too!
