Where in Australia will you be travelling? Mid January will still be busy, until school goes back at the beginning of February so bookings are essential at popular spots. A car & staying in cabins (at van parks) or other accommodation will give you more options.

I would suggest a read of this link about car hire in Australia tripadvisor.com/Travel-g255055-c119403/Austr…

January is high season, especially at caravan parks, coastal & popular holiday areas, so booking ahead is necessary.

Our school holidays end first week of February, more availability & some bargains then.

We just came back from Australia, rented in Tassie and Melbourne a camper. Camperman, especially the branch in Melbourne is just an awfull company, filthy and the fleet is just below any standard. Booking in advance in high season was required, in the more remote places we found always a camping (powered) even over Christmas.
