Booderee National Park, NSW
Head to Jervis Bay to witness one of the most gorgeous white sand beaches. Admire stunning blue waters, which are full of marine life. Walking, fishing and bird watching are some of popular activities in the area. There are three un-powered camping areas in the park and it’s just a three hour drive from Sydney.
Lake Eyre National Park, SA
You’re surrounded by incredible, stark wilderness. It’s Australia’s largest salt lake, which spans 9,500 square kilometres. It’s truly a remarkable sight. At 12m below sea level, this is Australia’s lowest point to camp. There are a few camping areas to choose from, including Halligan Bay and near Muloorina Station.
Grampians National Park, VIC
If you feel like hiking through gorgeous bushland and exploring natural wonders like MacKenzie Falls, then the Grampians National Park should be high on your camping list. There are plenty of campgrounds surrounded by forest. They all have basic amenities and will accommodate up to six people and a vehicle. Book early for holiday periods.
Douglas-Apsley National Park, TAS
Tasmania’s coastline is gorgeous. But so are the rugged landscapes inland, such as the Douglas-Apsley National Park. One of the beset camping spots is just a stone’s through from the Apsley Waterhole. There’s no better place to be in summer if you want to go hiking and cool off at one of the park’s many secluded waterfalls or freshwater pools.
Bribie Island, QLD
Bribie Island is the only island in all of Queensland where a bridge connects it to the mainland. This makes it easy to get to via 4WD from Brisbane. Here, you can camp right on the beachfront to enjoy ocean views. The Ocean Beach camping area is popular, while the Lime Pocket camping area is another great spot to take the family.
