Motorhome Rental & Campervan Hire Dunedin

Campervan hire in Dunedin

The heart of the Otago region, Dunedin is an excellent base from which to explore the breathtaking sights of the southern South Island. One of the best-preserved Victorian cities of the Southern Hemisphere, Dunedin is also an excellent place to learn about Maori culture and heritage, and the Dunedin Street Art Trail is well worth exploring. Beachgoers will absolutely want to be mobile to explore the incredible beaches featured in the Dunedin area, such as Sandfly Bay and Tunnel Beach, and bird lovers will be drawn to the nearby Royal Albatross Centre and breeding areas of the Yellow-Eyed (Hoiho) and Little Blue Penguins.

And then what? Campervan hire in Dunedin

Travellers who want to hit the road immediately after hiring their campervan have a number of options for nearby camping sites. To the south, Lake Waihola Holiday Park features incredible views and access to the water sports of Lake Waihola just 40 km south of central Dunedin and 18 km from the Dunedin airport. Northward-bound travellers and bike-enthusiasts will want to stop over at the Middlemarch Holiday Park, located at the foot of the Otago Central Rail Trail an hour’s drive northwest of Dunedin. In central Dunedin, there are a number of all-day parking spots for as low as $1 an hour; check out this informational map for prices and time restrictions. For travellers who need to park their car for an extended period, Dunedin Parking offers spaces for weekly rates between $16 and $40, depending on which location you choose. Travellers headed out of town will likely begin on the north-south State Highway 1, which intersects Dunedin to connect Invercargill in the south with Christchurch in the north. To follow the Southern Scenic Route to Queenstown, begin southward bound on State Highway 1. To head east to the Otago Peninsula from central Dunedin, take Portsmouth Dr to follow Portabello Road to the Royal Albatross Centre and beyond. You’ll want to stock up on groceries before you head out for nature adventures on the South Island, a particularly easy feat in Dunedin, where numerous New Worlds, Countdowns, and Fresh Choices line State Highway 1 through the city. For those who have the time to plan ahead, visiting the Otago Farmers Market is an absolute must for your fresh food needs – as well as for some delicious prepared foods. Come here on an empty stomach!

"I joined up with SHAREaCAMPER at the onset and found the staff exceedingly helpful. They assisted me in gaining my TSL and getting my camper ready to go. The booking system is great, you know exactly when your camper is booked and can easily block dates you wish to use the camper yourself. It is so nice to get some income from the camper when it would normally be just sitting in the shed. Well done guys"
