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

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

There’s history, too. Further north is Spiky Bridge, built in the 1840s by a convict road gang. Local fieldstones were placed vertically, giving a spiky appearance. Perhaps it was to stop cattle falling over the sides? You can also learn about the convict ruins

Scottsdale Northeast Park, Tasmania is a freedom favourite

The Scottsdale Northeast Park was so busy, I dropped in to see why it was so popular over the Australia Day weekend. I said hello to a great couple from Gippsland, Ron and  Lee Harwood. I caught them enjoying a breakfast of pancakes and local blueberries. Along with another camper Joy Bradford we happily chatted for ages, enjoying the morning sunshine. They all agreed that Northeast Park was one of their favourite campspots and it’s easy to see why. You can’t immediately tell how pretty this campground is from the road. It’s situated on the Tasman Highway, and within walking
