Now it’s almost Australia Day, it’s time to take your campervan for a spin and enjoy the various outdoor activities the long weekend has in store for you. The state of Victoria, in particular has numerous Australia Day events and activities that you can enjoy, whether you’re patriotic or not. Find out what they are.

Campervan: Australia Day 2013

Nova Slide Street. No matter how young or old you are, you won’t definitely pass up the opportunity to have some fun on a giant waterslide. Nova Slide Street is only on this Saturday, the 24th of January, so you might want to get cheap campervan hire services and drive yourself over to East Melbourne’s Lansdowne Street. This is your chance to enjoy a 315-metre slip n’ slide. But if you’re too chicken to go down the slide, there are food trucks, live entertainment, a pop-up bar, and other activities that you and your kids can enjoy during the one-day event.

Australia Day Parade. Drive your campervan to Melbourne as thousands of people will be lining up Swanston Street to enjoy the customary Australia Day Parade, wave flags, and cheer on the participants. What makes this year’s parade different is that the parade will include all your favourite traditional cultural and community groups, plus some new faces you haven’t seen before. The descendants of ANZAC soldiers are going to participate as well in recognition of the ANZAC centenary this year.

Australia Day at the Village. If you’re idea of celebrating Australia Day includes drinking a fair amount of alcohol with your mates, then sign up for cheap campervan hire services and drive yourself to The Village. The Village is where the Belgian Beer Garden used to be and now, cider of the 5 Hop variety is now being served in the place.

These are just of the events that the state of Victoria has in store for locals and tourists this Australia Day. So if you have nothing else to do, you should rent a campervan and drive yourself to scenic Victoria so you can explore and enjoy the various festivities and events this special holiday will bring.

But before you rent a campervan from a particular company, make sure that you do your homework first. Find out how many people are coming with you so you can identify the correct size of the vehicle you’ll rent. And finally, make sure you plan your trip so you can make the most of your Australia Day weekend.
