Road Restrictions


Whilst we are all for adventure and getting out to explore, there are a few roads that we don’t allow our campers to travel on, for safety reasons.

2WD Camper Road Restrictions

2WD Campervans can only be driven on sealed / bitumen roads.

The only exception to this are well-maintained access roads of less than 12 kilometres to recognised campgrounds, major tourist attractions and well-maintained, recognised roads on Kangaroo Island (South Australia). Should you wish to travel on an unsealed road that is greater than 12 kilometres in length to access a recognised campground, special permission can be arranged pending road conditions, weather and distance. Please contact your Booking Host to discuss.

Any 2WD vehicles found travelling on these roads will automatically void any liability option and will be liable for all costs incurred repairing the vehicle. We reserve the right at sole discretion to restrict movement in certain areas due to adverse road or weather conditions.

Should you breach the road restriction rules by taking a 2WD vehicle on an unsealed road or restricted road, a fee of $300 on each occasion that is identified will apply.
