Travellers have been all over Australia this summer – with a golden sunflower QLD drive, NT road trip, WA granite skywalk, SA beach camp, VIC free camp and one of the best hikes in Australia! You’ll want to remember these must do experiences … and let us know where you are camping? 

We love the Kimberley region in WA. If you hail from the flooded areas, we hope you and yours are safe.

Over the holidays, we read the plea for an Aussie owned, independent App for free and budget sites. The traveller was worried these sites were being removed or changed into day use areas in another App.

Well, there is – the Camps Australia Wide App actually predates others, and has led the way from 2011. Unlike others, each site is verified before it goes live – so you don’t end up with duplicate sites, it includes live fuel pricing, gas bottle refills and swap outlets (with another family owned business gasbottlerefills.com), dump points, tourist info centres…

Plus you can tell on the map symbols what type of camp site it is e.g.  showgrounds, national parks, state forests/nature reserves, pub stays, RV parks, farm and station stays, other budget sites, other free and donation sites, and caravan parks! At CAMPS we are all about choice.

Might I add, CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE has been listing camps, caravan parks and dump points long before any App! And showgrounds, farm stays or pub camping well before Facebook groups existed. Like the Daly Waters Pub in NT (our daughter was here this week! Amazing how quiet it was compared to our visit in the dry season. Read more here.)

And another thing, in our experience, the number of free camps and budget camps are increasing! We add new ones every week.

Please send us a video testimonial, telling why you love the book, or how you use it – better still when you are out camping! Write a review on google, the App stores, or Facebook. And to everyone who sends us and their friends those beautiful messages, comments and emails about why they love their CAMPS guides and CAMPS App. Thank you!
