Perth is the largest city in Western Australia and it's also the states capital.
The state of WA is incredibly sparsely populated. Despite being the largest state in Australia, only 11% of the population live there, with 79% of those living in the Perth area alone!
Just to give you another idea of the size of WA, it’s the second-largest country subdivision in the world.
Whilst most travellers opt to visit the east coast of Australia, the west coast certainly has a lot of hidden gems on offer.
Just an hour from Perth is the sweeping Avon Valley National Park, or head 3 hours south from the CDB to reach one of WA’s best loved spots, Margaret River.
But you’ll be hard pressed to get the most out of WA without a vehicle.
Unlike the east coast, the west coast isn’t as well linked by public transport, therefore having a vehicle is pretty essential.
If you're not planning to convert your own camper, then you'll need to hire one. Luckily, there are plenty of options!
So we’ve whittled it down to the top 10 RV rental firms in Perth, to get your road trip started on the right foot.
This way, you'll be ready for your epic adventure exploring Western Australia!
