We all have favourite places we love travelling to. A park, country, or a specific spot like beaches or campsites. Yes, campsites, people who love spending their days with nature and their nights under the stars. What is so appealing camping, is there is no wrong way to do it. You can hike to a good spot and set up a tent, or make a road trip of it and tour different sites using camper vans.
In Australia, there are a lot of campsites any adventurous traveller would want to visit with their friends or family. So here, we list down some of the best places where you can park your van or set up your tent to experience a unique kind of vacation among the seas, the trees, and under the stars.
Lucky Bay, Cape Le Grand National Park, WA
A camp at the beach is definitely the best ways to spend time with your friends, around a campfire with the sea breeze and the waves as your background. Here at Lucky Bay, Cape Le Grand National Park, you will be happy to see azure clear waters as you wake up from a beach-induced slumber, and you know what, that is not a bad scene to wake up to.
Dawsons Spring, Mt Kaputar National Park, NSW
With apps like Instagram, VSCO, and the like, taking great photos has been one of the things people are occupying themselves with these days. So if you want to crystallize your camping memories with a good camera, without the need for filters, Mt Kaputar offers a 360 view of New South Wales.
Orniston Gorge, West MacDonnell National Park, NT
What is a camping trip without seeing the stars twinkling in the sky? There is limited light pollution in Central Australia, not to mention the popular Larapinta Trail that leads campers to a near-permanent water hole. When you are here, do not forget to look up, you might miss a shooting star or two.
Mt Field National Park, TAS
If you want to feel like you are in the Lord of The Rings trilogy while you are camping, then go to Mt. Field National Park. The swamp gums here are among the tallest in the world, reaching as high as 100 m. You will be treated to a fern forest walk leading to Russell Falls, and a sighting or two of yellow-tailed black cockatoos.
Mitchell Falls, Mitchell River National Park, WA
Speaking of waterfalls, you definitely should not miss that amazing view at the Mitchell Plateau to see the four-tiered Mitchell Falls in all its glory. You may experience a bit of a hard time just getting to the plateau, but what waits for you there is definitely worth the slog.
So while you are preparing your camping supplies, camper van rentals, tent purchases and whatnot; go on and plot different campsites and enjoy a unique camping trip with the people whose company you love having the most.
