Here is a beautiful coastal campsite in the rugged west coast of Tasmania. It is free, pet friendly and protected from the wind.
Metres down the road, you’re at the beach! The park here has toilets, cold showers, a playground, sheltered BBQ and picnic tables right over the beach with AMAZING views.
There are more picnic tables in the camp area (see the video below). Suited for motorhomes, campervans, camper trailers and tents. Bring drinking water. Cold outdoor showers. No open fires allowed.
The campsite is clearly signed and on the right before the beach.
Choose from flat bitumen sites or some grassy spots with varying levels (some flat). It is not a big area, there were six campers there when we visited.
You can see the beach from the highest point in the campground, just behind the dunes.
You’ll see the same beautiful coloured rocks, you’ll find in the Bay of Fires.
There is a ramp to the beach – it was a grey day when we were there, but we could still admire the wild beauty of it all.
Read up on the tragic Indigenous history in the shelter, created by a local school.
You can see right Woolnorth Bluff Point Wind Farm, near Cape Grim. This is where NW Tasmania points into the ocean, south of Trefoil and Hunter Islands.
Marrawah is located 51km west of Smithton. It’s your last stop on the Tarkine Drive (anticlockwise) for a pub!
The coastline’s headlands receive the full force of the Roaring Forties from the Southern Ocean. The Green Point camp area is located 2.4km west of the Marrawah township on a beautiful drive down Green Point Road.
Further south is the village of Arthur River – known for cruises and The Edge of the World. There is a takeaway cafe here, and more camps!
