The Joy of the Great Outdoors
No matter what type of holiday you’re going for, Australia basically ticks every single box. Of course, one particular type of break it does better than anywhere else, is about being outdoors and enjoying the wonder of the landscapes, being at one with nature. For that reason, a camping holiday Down Under is the perfect answer to your next destination conundrum.
A country this large has plenty of places you can head to and enjoy everything Mother Nature has to offer, but some of the best camping spots Australia calls its own are not always that remote! This is great news for anyone who is new to camping, but it’s always a good idea to do some research ahead of time also, as some camps do require you to be self-sufficient. Having the information to hand is always best!
Check out these few suggestions to give you some inspiration.
Mitchell River National Park, located in Western Australia – This is certainly a remote place to head and will require you to be self-sufficient, so newbies should probably work up to this one slowly! If you know what you’re doing however, and you love to be surrounded by the wilderness, go for it! The waterfall which spans over four levels is certainly the highlight of the whole area.
Bamurru Plains, located in the Northern Territory – Great for any ability of camper, this is a luxury campsite which gives you access and views that will blow your mind! Located on the outskirts of Kakadu National Park, you don’t even have to stay in a tent in this particular park, as you will spend your evenings in luxury huts, giving you the best of both worlds.
Grampians National Park, located in Victoria – This particular camping destination is ideal for anyone who wants to mix up city life with nature, as Melbourne is easily reached by road. The main highlight of this particular camping area is that you will get some of the best views of the night’s stars than anywhere else! You don’t necessarily need a tent either, as there are overhanging rocks which are ideal for simply kicking back and relaxing on.
Jervis Bay, located in New South Wales – Booderee National Park is ideal for anyone who wants to camp near to the water; waking up close to the beach is probably one of the most amazing things you can do! This is a great campsite for anyone who hasn’t camped before, as the facilities are quality. A tip – check out the humpback whales on their migration during June and September to November, a truly breath-taking sight!
These are just a handful of camping opportunities in Australia, with countless more besides.
