10 vibrant vans to getaway in this spring

A collaboration with our friends at Camplify

As we bid farewell to a winter that seemed to overstay its welcome, we usher in spring with all its gorgeous colours and blossoming flowers. Not to mention much better weather!

The team at Camplify have been hard at work finding the perfect van for your spring getaway, and if you’re anything like us then you want to get out and look great while you’re doing it. With that in mind below are 10 of Camplify’s most vibrant vans to get you looking and feeling like spring.

But before we dive into the vans that have your name written all over them, time for a quick rundown of how Camplify works.

How Camplify works

1. Select which BIG4 park you’d like to stay at

2. Head to Camplify and choose where your adventure starts

From home, or your chosen BIG4 park where a caravan can be delivered straight to your site.

3. Choose your hire type.

Do you want to drive, tow a caravan, or have a van delivered to your campsite? All three are possible on Camplify’s site, so be sure to filter your search accordingly.

4. Live your best van life

Whether you’re road-tripping along the coast or staying put by the river, Camplify is there to support you for the duration of your holiday. Hire a Camplify van and you’ll gain access to 24/7 nationwide breakdown cover, comprehensive damage cover, and 24/7 customer support. More about that here.

Find the perfect van

1. Cool Bean Teardrop Camper (Helena

Valley, WA)

They said it couldn’t be done, that orange and yellow would never come together to create the perfect caravan, but here it is. The Cool Bean Teardrop Camper is straight out of WA and ready to facilitate your spring escape. Keep one side on the sunrise and one on the sunset to create a kaleidoscopic wonder as you traverse the Western coastline.

Keen as a bean!

2. Turquoise Gem (Kalamunda, WA)

Orange and yellow not your thing? That’s cool, we promise we won’t judge. If you want to feel like you’re towing a piece of the spring sky behind you, look no further than the stunning Turquoise Gem. With a full-sized queen bed, pull-out kitchen and solar panels, this beauty will be the azure envy of other campers. Warning: it may camouflage itself against the open blue skies.

Parks to visit: BIG4 Emu Beach, BIG4 Breeze - Busselton, BIG4 Denmark Ocean Beach

A rare gem.

3. Retro RV (Belgrave, VIC)

Camping doesn’t get any more stylish than the Kombi, the 70s staple that will turn heads anywhere you drive it. But don’t spend the whole time gawping at its beautiful exterior, this two-person snail camper has been lovingly restored and drives like new, with a whole heap of added modern luxuries to make for a super comfortable getaway this spring. Find this van in the stunning Dandenong Ranges and get a slice of that groovy 70s spirit.

Just because of its shape doesn't mean you have to go at a snail's pace.

4. Maisie The Orange Van (Lane Cove, NSW)

Is there a more invigorating sight after winter than glorious orange flower blooms in a lush field, basking in the warmth of the sun with a glorious tune of bird song in the background? Yes, yes there is. Maisie the Orange Van puts all of that to shame with her vibrant tangerine coat, eggshell white walls and timber finish. She’s perfect for flower-hunting trips, flower-spotting trips, or, you know, camping if you’re feeling more conventional or literal.

Parks to visit: BIG4 Mudgee, BIG4 Easts Beach, BIG4 South Durras 

You certainly won't lose Maisie.

5. High Roof Surf Heaven (Coogee, NSW)

If you’re after a perfect spring surf getaway, you can’t do much better than a van with ‘surf heaven’ in the name. Located on the shores of beautiful Coogee Beach, this pearler even comes with beach parking permits for Coogee and nearby Bondi, so you don’t have to travel far to catch the perfect break. If you’re not a surfer, no worries! One look at the stunning conversion inside with its generous daybed, modern kitchen and high roof, you’ll be sold and ready to take it on a road trip.

Hang ten in this yellow number.

6. William (Brisbane, QLD)

With a name fit for a king, it’s no wonder this offering is fit for the ultimate spring road trip. This sunshine-yellow Jeep comes equipped with a handy rooftop tent, 270-degree awning and a kitchen setup to rival the best motorhomes. The best part? He’s off-road approved, so you can hit up all those hard-to-reach places you’ve been dreaming of. What better way to explore the hundreds of hidden beaches, sandy coves and turquoise bays of the Queensland coast.

Parks to visit: BIG4 Sandstone Point, BIG4 Gold Coast, BIG4 Maroochy River  

Jeepers creepers he's a bold colour!

7. Frankie Rose (Burleigh Heads, QLD)

Luxury camping doesn’t come much more luxurious than this vintage caravan. Newly renovated and ready to provide you with the perfect spring camping experience at a BIG4 park. Frankie Rose is as close to the ‘all inclusive resort’ type of holiday you can get while camping, as the fantastic owners will drive the caravan to the campsite and set it up for you. You won’t need to lift a finger as you relax amongst the trees in this light and airy retro camper.

Parks to visit: BIG4 Caloundra, BIG4 Breeze - Rainbow Beach, BIG4 Hervey Bay

Chase the sunrise in this delightful van.

8. Salty the Bus (Holgate NSW)

Van life is great and all, in fact it’s one of the best types of life in our humble opinion. But if you haven’t tried bus life then you’re missing out. The absolute legend Salty the Bus is the ideal rental to explore spring with and see if bus life is the one for you. Salty is a bigger vehicle than most of Camplify's other offerings, so you’ll need to be comfortable driving the 7-metre bus, but with the space and freedom Salty offers, you’ll be in for the holiday of a lifetime.

Parks to visit: BIG4 Karuah Jetty, BIG4 Bays

Salty the Bus is just itching to get his tyres near a beach.

9. Rose, The Vintage Viscount Duravan (Burpengary, QLD)

Okay, you’ve seen the Barbie movie three times now and you’re feeling all kinds of fabulous. Work’s getting to you and all you can think about is escaping to Barbieland for a tranquil weekend. The closest you’re going to get without ending up on the cast for the sequel is this magnificent dusty pink caravan of dreams from Queensland. With stylish rose gold trimmings and space for four, Rose could be the perfect antidote to your post-Barbie blues this spring.

Parks to visit: BIG4 Whitsundays Tropical Eco Resort, BIG4 Freedom Lifestyle Warwick

Come on Barbie, let's go party in Rose the vintage van!

10. Honey Bee (Rochedale South, QLD)

If you’re anything like us, and occasionally lapse into the odd daydream about buzzing about with the freedom of a honey bee, then you might just have to make this van your next holiday home. Decked out to be taken completely off-grid, the Honey Bee lives up to its name with its solar panels allowing you to find your quiet moments out in the wild. It also comes stocked up with coffee, tea and a basic pantry, so you only need to bring yourself.

Parks to visit: BIG4 Toowoomba Garden City, BIG4 Breeze - Bargara

Life will be sweet as honey when you take a trip in this van.
