Ezra from the UK, is touring Tasmania – and hiring a motorhome for a week’s camping. 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.
Now to ‘Camping 101’ tips! 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 you don’t need to book, and some in Tassie have facilities, too. Use your filters to search for $ crossed out and the donation buttons (search via $ rather than site type) and toilets and or showers to see…
(Unless you only want to stay in caravan parks or showgrounds, for instance…then search by site type.)
Check to see if they need booking. If you mean to stay around a particular area – you can contact the local Tourist Information Centre – they are a great help with itineraries and attractions, too.
We loved Stanley, the NW coast, the Bay of Fires (north of Binalong Bay/St Helens) and Bicheno, and we flew into Launceston. But it was too much for one week!
I want to go back to Hobart/Port Arthur/Bruny – and back up to Freycinet National Park/Wineglass Bay. Also to Strahan, Cradle Mountain and the rest of the Tarkine Drive.
