Top 25 – Van Life Inspiration Photos

Travelling around Australia in a van turned home can be a goal of many. Waking up in a different picturesque location every morning is stuff dreams are made of. But it isn’t easy, most pack up and sell all that they own to travel in these vans, and most don’t regret a single second of it. From the top end in Queensland, the red dirt in Uluru or the hot days in the Northern Territory, Living out of a van can enhance the experience if exploring Australia.

If you need some inspiration to pack it all up and hit the open road, we’ve compiled some of the best #vanlife Instagram photos to really show you the best of the best.

#vanlife, #camperlife, #livingontheroad or whatever other idolised hashtag we are all guilty of using and making the lifestyle look bloody damn glamorous and easy. Well, it's not. Here I am smiling. Not because I woke up to a sunrise at the beach or because we stumbled across a kick ass secluded free camp. I am smiling because we have been parked up in a caravan park for an entire week! And it feels so effing great! We have not had to worry about the 6pm panic attacks of where are we going to sleep or the dreaded 5am alarms screaming at us to move on. We do mostly free camp but there comes a time when you need to be able to actually relax, completely set up comfortably and smile at everyone that walks by instead of trying to figure out what annoyed comment they are mumbling under their breath at you because you have turned the car park into your backyard yard with a makeshift clothes line and all. Oh and having a shower in a cubicle every night has been a dream! Morale of my story is that, it IS OK to pay for accommodation every now and then because seriously, sometimes free camping absolutely sucks!!!!!
