Although you have likely read about the Great Ocean Road, there are several other great places to visit when you're surfing. Even though many of the best spots are not on the GOR, they are worth visiting, especially when a soft roof rack for your rental campervan makes everything easier.

How a roof rack will make your road trip easier

A soft roof rack helps you save heaps when you go on holiday. No need to book a big campervan or motorhome to have more space for your surfboard. Just book a compact campervan from Spaceships and add soft roof racks as optional accessory for your gear. Bring your surfboard or other big items on your road trip and you're good to go.

There's no more worrying about your surfboard bouncing all about and ending up in the middle of the road, or losing any of the rest of your gear. One of the advantages of being able to take more of your gear is having more options when you arrive at your location. Feel like camping or cooking up some BBQ? You're ready to go. 

Soft roof racks as an optional accessory for your campervan

Now you can add soft roof racks as an optional accessory to your Spaceships booking. Soft roof racks that can be used on any Spaceships campervan in Australia. Add 'em to your booking or add 'em later on via the Online Check-in Portal.

Heading out to Noosa

Seeing Double Point Island

Double Point Island is part of this area, and it's one of the best spots all around for camping. Being able to hit the waves straight away when you get up is always worth the time. You'll enjoy the 60 km of shore that gives you plenty of surfing chances.

Visiting Bendalong

If you're in search of quality waves, Bendalong is one of the best places to have a surf camp. Arrive in your campervan, and you'll be set to enjoy the surfing and beach experience. It's easy to see why this spot is a favourite.

Going to Green Island

Green Island will take your breath away with its scenery out of a film. You'll get perfect surfing conditions all summer, too. What's not to love?

Stopping by Crescent Head

Crescent Head adds fishing to the activities that you'll want to consider along with surfing. With your campervan, you can stay in an ideal spot to catch some waves. With several beaches facing different ways, there's never a bad spot for waves.

A good time at Broken Head

Broken Head, besides great surfing, also lets you hear loads of live music most nights at nearby Byron. The waves in this area are abundant, making it easy to see why so many pro surfers got their start here. You'll find this surfing spot well worth your time.

Why a campervan makes a difference

Because a Spaceships campervan drives like a car (and sleeps like campervan), you won't need to worry about learning how to drive one. You only need to think about where to go and what you want to do. With this much freedom to enjoy, nothing can stop you.

Taking advantage of everything
