Free camping sites in Walgett Shire region New South Wales

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…

Where the hell is Hay? Hay NSW Silo art

Where the hell is Hay?

Hay is a wonderful town in New South Wales. Three highways intersect at Hay: the Cobb, Sturt and Mid Western, so it is hard to miss! The phrase, “Where the hell is Hay?” isn’t ours. In fact, after our lap in 2013, Heatley came home with a hat saying just that! Seriously, we were impressed by Hay’s attractions back then and loved our free camp stay a few months ago. Put this NSW gem on your list! First we scoped out the campgrounds… Hay Showground Our first stop, we chatted with the very friendly caretaker, Kevin. He said, “It was

Mount Taylor Forest Camp Gippsland,Victoria.

New: Mount Taylor Forest Camp, Gippsland, Victoria

  Mount Taylor Forest Camp is located in Gippsland, Victoria. Caron Horton from Facebook Group ‘Tripping with Caz and Pete’ said we must add it to the CAMPS guide and App! Caz said, “The drive here from Bairnsdale was glorious, with some very picturesque scenery. I was a little bit concerned as we got closer to the camp as there was lots of smoke in the air, but at the moment it is just a controlled burn, albeit a bit close for my liking.” “The camp is lovely – part of it is day use as there are a multitude
