Tasmania is one of Australia’s most unspoilt destinations. It’s also an ideal place to camp or explore in a campervan or car rental. With more than 50 caravan parks across the state, mostly in parks and reserves, Tasmania is the perfect place for your next affordable holiday.

Here are five great places to stay in Tasmania.

Big4 Iluka on Freycinet Holiday Park, Coles Bay

This holiday park sits opposite the stunning Muirs Beach at Coles Bay, which is located on Tasmania’s beautiful East Coast. Big4 Iluka on Freycinet Holiday Park, with its park cabins, powered sites and tent sites, makes for the perfect base to explore this idyllic area. Not only is the area known for its stunning natural attractions, such as Wineglass Bay and Freycinet National Park, but it’s also full of history and great walks.

Relax at White Beach Tourist Park, which is only a stone’s throw away from the crystal clear waters of White Beach. You’re close to a range of water activities, such as swimming and kayaking, not to mention it’s only a 10 minute drive from Port Arthur.

Discovery Holiday Parks Cradle Mountain

This caravan park features powered and unpowered sites in a beautiful bush setting, which is located on the edge of the World-Heritage listed Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park. From here, you can explore the famous Overland Track, climb Cradle Mountain and admire the surrounding wilderness.

Launceston Holiday Park, Legana

The best of both worlds. At Launceston Holiday Park, you’re situated on eight acres of leafy parkland but you’re only a few minutes from the centre of Launceston. Here, you have the convenience of powered and unpowered caravan sites, and it’s  also a wonderful base from which you can explore nearby attractions.

Strahan Holiday Park

Situated in the heart of Strahan, a small harbour village on the west coast of Tasmania, Strahan Holiday Park is only a two minute walk from the local swimming beach. It’s also a great place to stay with the family. The holiday park’s owners say there’s a resident platypus that hangs around the nearby creek, and can be spotted from some sites at dusk!
