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

A free caravan park at Coonalpyn, South Australia

Who doesn’t love a freebie! We have to give a shout out to Coorong District Council managing Coonalpyn Caravan Park also known as the Coonalpyn Soldiers Memorial Park. The park underwent some refurbishment earlier this year and council opted to charge no fees during that time, and have decided to continue that model for the time being and you will only pay as you use with a $5 fee for the shower.  No bookings, first come first served! Coonalpyn, in the Coorong region, in the south east corner of South Australia, has a local hotel, bakery coffee shop plus a

Five star free camping at 10k Peg Parking Area, The Nullarbor, South Australia

“We had traversed the Nullarbor 16 times before but never stayed at a camp site for more than one night. …after travelling in non-stop rain all day we crossed the WA/SA border and stopped at the 10K peg inside SA. The next morning we woke to find the rain had cleared and there was a beautiful, clear blue sky. The other campers spread over the large area headed off, we had the site to ourselves and so decided that we would chill out, enjoy the vista, have a fire and stay a second night. We live in such a lucky

Changes to Murray River FREE camping near Yarrawonga, Victoria

Forges Beach – Victoria Vic Parks have recently made some big changes to the camping options along the Murray River, consolidating many state forest, wildlife reserves, conservation areas and town commons under the umbrella of the National Parks system. This has cleared up a lot of confusion about who controls what, where to book and where to find the info you need to plan your trip. With roughly 2000km of river frontage in Victoria, you can only imagine the scale of the task placed upon Parks to achieve this outcome and we thank them for their hard work. This process
