More and more travellers are discovering our CAMPS App! Here is an awesome review and a free camp fly fishers will LOVE.

“Heatley, thanks for reaching out. We’ve been long time users of the Camps Aust books and POIs in our Hema GPS device. However, the quality and performance of the new app for us changes our day-to-day reliance to the Camps Aust App.

“I was really impressed with the overall responsiveness and user interface. But really impressed with the offline functionality, download and sync features.

“These work just awesome. Offline capability is a feature of Australian touring that gets minimised by other apps sadly. Well done team.”

Pictured is one of those free camps Max found with the CAMPS App in Tasmania’s Central Highlands. Thanks Max for your lovely review. He camped not far away at Little Pine Lagoon Conservation Area on a winter trip to Lake Augusta.

Now this camp is possibly the best known fly fishing water in Australia!

Strictly fly fishing only – observe the season (early August to late April). You can walk around the entire lagoon, but only camp in the designated area.

Also, the lagoon is very shallow and weedy – averaging about one metre of depth. The population of brown trout is sustained naturally and managed together by Parks Tas and Inland Fisheries as a wild trout fishery.

The only facilities are new toilets along Cricket Pitch Shore. Dogs are now permitted, but must be kept under control. Please note: no campfires and fuel stoves only.

If you have always wanted to camp in the snow – put this one on your list. You could be lucky, like Max!

You don’t have to love fishing to relax and soak up the scenery in this region. Explore crystalline lakes, dolerite boulders and fresh streams of the Central Plateau. 

This unique alpine environment is located inside the World Heritage Wilderness Area of Tasmania.

Max also recommends the Thousand Lakes Lodge – a former Antarctic Training Facility, pictured. Particularly if you want to stay, but are looking for an alternative to camping in the snow!
