Thank you winter! While some West Australian couples bunker down on the couch, waiting for the mercury to rise again, campervan lovers hit the road to enjoy the natural wonders around Perth! Whether you’re looking at campervans for sale in Perth, or you already own one, now is the perfect time for a quick romantic getaway… or three.
Even in the depths of winter, Yallingup is a jewel to behold. With its coastal location and proximity to Margaret River wineries, the choices for mild entertainment or romantic relaxation are plentiful. First things first – as you wind your way down our stunning coastline, stock up for the trip with a farm-fresh produce pit stop at the Bunbury Farmers Market. Once in Yallingup, reset the mind with a stroll on the boardwalk over the water at Canal Rocks – a place that Mother Nature saw fit to set out on a peninsula as if only to emphasise its sparkling magnificence. Incredible white sands greet you right along Yallingup’s coastline walks but if blue or turquoise are more your colours, don the snorkel and flippers for an idyllic paddle in the lagoon at Yallingup Beach. Perhaps you fancy a cosy dinner for two? Romantic rendezvous are stepped up a notch or two at Margaret River with the region boasting ninety-five wineries, all keen to serve you plates of the finest local fare by the fire, with the next young-gun winemaker’s personal selection on the table. While for the passionate adventurers, head underground and tour the amazing colourful show of the stalagmites, stalactites and helictites of Ngilgi Cave.
Just over an hour’s drive east from city sits Helena National Park and the idyllic picnic spot to recline at while drinking in Perth’s skyline and your favourite beverage. If bubbles are your picnic preference, perhaps a trip to one of the thirty-five or so wineries in the region (some with restaurants attached) is your first move. How about a head start on a Sunday getaway? While the city sleeps in, leave your campervan site early for the incredible Kalamunda farmers markets. They operate on the first Sunday of every month, 8:00am to midday. Still in Kalamunda, the national park is home to the amazing views of the Rocky Pool walks (3km or 5.5km) which are even more jaw-dropping after a deluge of winter rain. So where to park your campervan on this short romantic retreat? There are heaps of choices in the area, starting with the fresh, modern appeal of Banksia Tourist Park.
It’s the getaway of getaways – mainly because it’s a short nineteen kilometre trip over water but you feel a world away from the mainland! Better still, once the cooler days set in, the Rottnest experience becomes much more affordable. World-class beaches and bays, cosy cabins, the Mediterranean-style climate and the unique flora and fauna… they all come together to create ‘holiday unforgettable’. You simply bring the romance.
Winter spent travelling locally in your very own campervan can only be described as ‘heaven on Perth’. So when the open road calls, chat to the friendly team at Caravanland about the stylish range of campervans they have for sale in Perth.
