Free camping sites in Kent Western Australia

Free Camping ……. and caravanning is one of the more rewarding ways to explore and experience a place. This is especially true in a country like Australia, famous for the great outdoors.

There are plenty of campsites tucked away – but if you don’t know where they are you can easily miss them. People often assume that it won’t be difficult to find a place to stopover on a budget but soon discover it can be a lot more expensive than anticipated. Or worse, they can’t find somewhere to stop and continue driving when they are tired.

These “free camping” sites include rest areas, picnic areas, parklands or parking areas next to a business. You can also stay for free at some hotels, state forests or RV Parks – we even come across free caravan parks!

Some would only be suitable for a brief overnighter on your journey and may have a maximum time limit. Others are next to pools or rivers, with toilets and you are welcome to bring along your pets and stay for longer.

Generally, less pricey means less facilities. However, we list free camps with pools, showers, playgrounds, near boat ramps and wonderful views. Some are close to world class destinations, and Aussie icons.

Just use the symbols or the filters to find them in our comprehensive guide books and Camps Australia Wide App!

Here’s a preview of campsites and caravan parks we have found with 30 years of research! Happy camping…

Doolena Gorge – a Western Australia free camp by the water

Photo credit: Denhym Kelly-Wilson @denhymn from Instagram Who knew that only half an hour from Marble Bar, the hottest place in Australia – there was a waterhole to cool down in? Doolena Gorge is shaded by trees and the cliffs most of the day, so perfect for a swim. Follow walking tracks to the next creek or climb up to the waterfall. If you are camping here, make sure you arrive in time – dusk is a must, this is when the sun lights up the cliff face. Facilities are non-existent, but pets are welcome. Access this camp only during

Brand new: Narrogin RV Stop, Western Australia

We all know that government can be more of a hindrance than a help sometimes, so when local councils take the time to listen to the needs of their constituents and deliver the resources requested, we should all take the time to show our support.

Freedom Camp at Ballinyoo Bridge, WA

Freedom Camp at Ballinyoo Bridge Western Australia

Image courtesy Lyn Quilty Here’s an update from Lyn Quilty: “A fantastic free camp spot is Ballinyoo Bridge, on the Murchison River. Big open area for larger vans or groups, then smaller, more private sites going well back from main road. Just follow the tracks. We had a quick swim each day, saw a couple kayaking, lots of walks, wildflowers, good spot for birdwatching, curious emus, wood available. A beautiful spot for a few days. No facilities other than million star accommodation.” Thank you Lyn, for sending in your photo and sharing your review with Camps Australia Wide. Ballinyoo Bridge
