Nothing beats the feeling of freedom that comes with camping, and there has never been a better time to explore our own uniquely beautiful backyard. Here are our 5 top places to take your camper trailer.
The Munga-Thirri–Simpson Desert Conservation Park
This area is what Australia is all about – hundreds of kilometers of striking red desert draped across the borders of Queensland, the Northern Territory, and South Australia.
Rich in lakes, dunes and wildlife, this spot is home to the mysterious “Lone Gum”, a solitary Coolabah tree that’s become a local legend.
Just note, a park pass is required to camp, and the park is closed between December 1 and March 15 each year.
Mimosa Rocks National Park, New South Wales
Just 3 hours from Canberra lies this rare paradise, where Australia’s scorched outback, rugged bush and glittering coast intersect.
The Aragunnu Campground will place you right near the beach, while easy walking tracks allow you to explore lush lagoons as you spot native flora and fauna.
Hamelin Bay, Western Australia
A jewel in the gorgeous crown that is the Margaret River area, Hamelin Bay is a chance to stop time, unplug and unwind.
Explore the treasures of the many caves, visit the 100-year-old Karri trees in Boranup forest, or head down to the jetty to spy the area’s most famous residents – the stingrays!
Freycinet National Park, Tasmania
Two and a half hours from Launceston and Hobart lies this secluded gem.
Laze on soft white sand, play in the clear waters of the Tasman and explore Oyster Bay by day, then indulge in some of the world’s best stargazing at night.
Don’t miss the pink granite Hazards Range or the stunning Wineglass Bay!
Cape Tribulation, Queensland
This area, where the sea kisses the rainforest, is brimming with perfect spots to park camper trailers.
Enjoy the unrivaled beauty of Daintree National Park, or make your home right on the beach, then kayak around the surrounding islands.
The beauty and solitude of Cape Trib await just 2.5 hours from Cairns, along a sealed road.
So, there you have it. Far-flung travel might be off the cards for a while but the magic of Australia – from sparkling seas to vast desert plains – awaits, so start packing!
