CAMPS Tips on Touring Tasmania

Tips on Touring Tasmania

Ezra from the UK, is hiring a motorhome, and organising a week’s camping in Tasmania. He said places are booking out already, and was hoping for some advice…  Now, we’re just back from Tasmania and it is no surprise bookings are busy. Especially around that time. We had trouble, too – but there was still room in free camps. Firstly – here is our latest article that is perfect for you. I would recommend choosing one corner of Tasmania (depending on where you fly into Tasmania), otherwise in a week you’ll spend a lot of time driving. Many free camps

Leven Canyon Reserve Tasmania

Free camp beside a Tassie canyon at Leven Canyon Reserve

What a site! Just a short walk from this free, pet-friendly campground at Leven Canyon Reserve is a lookout 275m above the river!  On arrival, we saw the day use area below the carpark – the elevated campground is quite sloped, but there were still flat locations to set up camp. I loved this camp spot with the silver wattle, looking over the valley of blue gum – this is the photo chosen for our brand new CAMPS 12 now available on pre-order… There were a couple of RVs set up at the top of the hill. Below that was a

Neil and Jovy, Halls Point (free camp), Tasmania

Freedom camps near Penguin, Tasmania

Penguin is west of Ulverstone and Devonport, a gorgeous place to visit with two free and one donation campsite. All beachfront to the Bass Strait! Hall Point We met Neil and Jovie at Halls Point, Tasmania who said. “We find all our stays in the book! We can’t be happier with our travel with CAMPS.” What a great site they had – free and oceanfront. Penguins, too! I can’t believe you’ll see them at night here. It is a protected penguin colony, so definitely no pets allowed. Hall Point is not a large area, and it is close to the road and

Tullah Lakeside Lodge

2 new Pubstays in Tassie

Today we listed two new campsites at beautiful Tullah in Tasmania. Both are pubstays and within close proximity to each other. Tullah Lakeside Lodge This pub stay is right on the banks of Lake Rosebery. They offer camping for Caravans, RVs and camper trailers, with power, water and shared amenities. However, the base is hard gravel. This means you won’t pitch a tent here, but you can always stay in the lodge just for the serenity and views. Camping is $25 for a couple for the night and there is a free area for self-contained RVs. You’ll be stunned with

TAS Petal Point Our Camp - Photo credit No Boundaries

Petal Point – free camp at this remote Tassie Getaway

Photo credit No Boundaries Petal Point is a primitive camp situated high on an escarpment looking north across Bass Strait. Situated in the less travelled north east corner of Tasmania, we loved it because of its remoteness and panoramic views. At Petal Point, you need to be fully self-contained, take all your supplies in and take any evidence of your stay out. We settled in to the silence easily – only interruption was the ocean waves, sea breezes and the Mozart we belted out around the campfire at sunset – a luxury afforded because we were the only camping residents
