  1. We are planning to head back to Australia for a long trip. Renting a camper van for $2 sounds too good to be true for sure. We have looked at relocation rentals in Canada so good to know there are similar deals in Australia. Definitely something to check out.

  2. You’re welcome. 3 weeks would have been nice. When driving in Australia, there is always so much more to see and do. So I can imagine how tough it would have been to not be tempted to venture off-track.
    I hope that you get the chance to do it again 🙂

    1. It was a fab experience but yes a huge challenge. Obviously if I had more time I would’ve loved to spend 3 weeks exploring the coast but with only one week spare it was the only option! And I’d do it again! Loved it. Thanks for your comment 🙂

  3. I’ll bookmark that website. That could come in handy at some point I reckon. Thanks for sharing 😀

  4. That’s such a good trick. That’s a lot of driving indeed but it’s perfect for budget travelers who don’t want to spend money on flights! However, I would feel a bit frustrated not to be able to stop in all those awesome places on the way – but the $1,000 fee is motivating lol

    1. Thanks for your comment Eloise. I agree, there are pros and cons to the idea. Ideally driving from Cairns to Sydney should take 2-3 weeks and we did it in six days. But although we didn’t see everything, we saw more than we would have done if we hadn’t got this deal! And we chose the places we really wanted to see, like Byron Bay, and made sure to stop there for the night. And yes the $1000 fee was VERY motivating ha!!

  5. Great value, a lot of driving, however great way to explore. Didn’t know this existed so thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks for your comment Paul and Carole! I had never heard of it either, but if your tight on time and money, it’s a great way to save money and enjoy yourselves too! It was a lot of driving but we had a blast and are so glad we did it.
