Camps 7 is the ultimate guide for the budget and freedom traveller.
After achieving great success and popularity with the previous six editions, Camps Australia Wide have released their seventh edition. Whether you camp, caravan or own a motorhome, this guide will help you get the most out of your travels around Australia.
Camps 7 goes above and beyond previous editions with more free and low cost campsites, caravan parks, station stays, national parks and rest areas around Australia. This comprehensive travel guide features over 3,900 sites, full colour and informative symbols that depict the facilities at each campsite.
Everything a traveller needs to know about each site can be easily found by simply looking at the descriptive icons and symbols. These show rules and facilities such as toilets, maximum rigs, maximum stay allowed, dump point, pets allowed, fees applicable, mobile phone coverage and site access details.
The guide also includes Hema Maps, with symbols used to mark the positions of the sites on the map.
Camps Australia Wide do the leg work so that you get the most up to date information. Over the past 2 years they have travelled over 79, 000 kilometres discovering 350 great new sites for the 7th edition and removing those that are no longer suitable.
Camps 7 is great value for money. After just a few nights of camping the savings you make will outweigh the cost of the book, and the time it saves is priceless.
Being able to plan a trip with stopovers that are free or low cost, knowing if pets are welcome and seeing facility availability at a glance, has proven to be a hit with travellers across Australia. Its easy to see why Camps guides are regarded as the travellers bible.

We provide a free Update Service on our web site for the current edition and also for the previous edition of Camps. Updates are available from the first published date for 4 years. These provide details of site closures or a change in the status for a site e.g from overnight use to a day use no camping or vice versa, changes to pet /no pets allowed, as well as details of new facilities that may be added to existing sites. We do not usually list new sites on the updates.
Changes to the listings in the book
Camps Australia Wide provides details of free and low cost camping or overnight sites throughout Australia. The availability of these are “Subject to Change without notice”. Controlling authorities for the sites listed may change the site to NO Camping at any time. Please observe these regulatory signs and respect the conditions, and, as always use common sense.
GPS stands for Global Positioning System. Using signals provided from satellites users are able to determine reliable positioning & navigation.
There are 3 common GPS coordinate display formats:
- Latitude and Longitude (-17.598889 145.758611)
- Lat / Long -minutes-seconds (17 35 56 145 45 31),
- Lat/ Long -minutes-decimal seconds (17 35.933 145 45.517) – We use this one.
The Camps Australia Wide & Caravan Parks Australia Wide books use Lat./ Long –minutes-seconds, in the book we call this Degrees-minutes-seconds. Generally you will find that most GPS units have the above three settings, so if you want to input our GPS coordinates for a site into your GPS you must have the right setting selected. Entering our coordinates into another setting will result in incorrect directions and you will not access the correct site.
Camps Australia Wide site Point of Interest (POI) files have been created for some of the popular GPS brands, these files only match the Camps 7 sites and when loaded into your GPS will allow quick select for your GPS to direct you to your selected site. See our shopping cart for information on POI’s. As always take care when following directions from your GPS as they tend to want to take short cuts, so use common sense when following the directions given.
As a new book is only released every 2 years there are always changes to listings during that time and we also add new sites and delete closed and unsuitable sites. As the format of the numbers follows a highway, when we come to printing the next edition the numbers all have to be realigned.
As per above these premium locations tend to charge much more than $24.00 p/n for a powered site so they are over the cost parameters for being listed in the Camps book.
There are however, some remote parks and Stations that we do list with a $+ symbol in the camps book. This is either because there is no other choice in that location or the facility is unique.
The Camps book is aimed at freedom and budget camping, so the only caravan parks listed in it are usually low cost council parks and smaller remote town parks that were under $24.00 per night for a powered site when we went to print.
The Caravan Parks book lists only caravan parks no matter what the cost.
The text and maps inside the books are identical. The difference is that in the B4 with CampSnaps, where we have a photo of an overnight site we have placed that photo alongside the text. This gives you a visual perception of the location. To view the different visit our sample pages.
We use Australia Post for all shipping in Australia; standard postage is FREE when you purchase a book from us. It generally takes between 3 to 5 working days for delivery.
Express Post is available for a fee for urgent deliveries.
We release a new edition of Camps Australia Wide every 2 years. Camps 7 was released in February 2013 so Camps 8 will be scheduled for February 2015
