What to see and do at Arthur River in Tasmania’s North West

Boasting three budget campgrounds and a caravan park, Arthur River is a must do! This tiny village has a population of about 25. Surrounded by the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area and located on the Tarkine Drive this is a pristine area of Tasmania.  As for wildlife, there are  Bennett’s wallabies, Tasmanian pademelons and wombats. Tasmanian devils, brushtail possums and spotted-tailed quolls! Unfortunately, we only spotted the Tassie Devil signs. Birdwatchers have plenty of species to spot as well. On top of fishing, surfing, horse riding and camping, it is surprising how much there is to do and see… The Edge of the World A must! Take the short drive and take the boardwalk to

The Stumpys – Mount William National Park, NE Tasmania

If you’ve camped at Stumpys Bay in the north east of Tasmania, you’ll already know what a find it is.  Off the Tasman Highway, travel to Gladstone and follow the signs towards Musselroe Bay, it is gravel all the way with a hint of bitumen, but don’t get excited, it doesn’t last long. The road is subject to flooding so plan ahead.  It is all very well signed along the way.  I initially had three bars of Telstra signal here, but it disappeared quickly as I entered Mt William National Park and no Optus at all. There’s an information bay

Crossing Bass Strait to be easier

Images courtesy of Geelong Port and Spirit of Tasmania Did you know the Spirit of Tasmania is moving its mainland link from Station Pier, Port Melbourne to Corio Quay just north of Geelong? This is good news for caravanners and larger vehicles, heading for holidays on the Apple Isle.   That dreaded going round in circles and doing laps of Station Pier, trying to find somewhere to park is coming to an end! Catching the Spirit on the mainland side has always been a bit of a bottle neck for parking larger vehicles waiting to cross Bass Strait, not to

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

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
