The Easter break is less than a month away! If you are lucky enough to have a long weekend, get away, relax and celebrate. One popular Australian Easter activity is camping, whether you are with friends, family or taking a solo trip here are my picks for the top five camping areas in Australia:
Broome is known as the southern gateway to the Kimberley. It’s a tropical seaside town oozing with charm and character and is a great location to sleep under the stars. With the war weather it is great to be able to swim on your camping adventure. The main swimming beach in Broome is the famous Cable Beach, which is white sand and clear water. The northern end of the beach offers 4WD access. The Sunset is awesome here, although on a full moon head to Town Beach where you may be able to see Broome's 'Staircase to the Moon' (which is the refection of the moon on the mud flats).
Moreton Island, QLD
Moreton Island is made up mostly of National Park with lush forests, and shimmering lakes and lagoons. The swampy regions are towards the north of the island with the desert being towards the south. Moreton Island has a great selection of coastal camping experiences, some accessible by four-wheel-drive, others accessible by boat. All campgrounds and camping zones within the national park and recreation area require a camping permit which you must have before you arrive on the island.
Great Ocean Road, VIC
The Great Ocean Road is one of the best picturesque drives in the world. It takes in beaches, rain forest, waterfalls, cliffs and a whole bunch of unique towns. There are plenty of serviced camp grounds throughout region, or sites nestled deep in the Otway’s. You can also set up camp by the dunes at remote and secluded beaches or stay in a forest park.
Alice Springs, NT
Alice Springs is a remote and picturesque town. It is a short trip from the spectacular East and West MacDonnell ranges and many natural attractions. It is a poplar base to explore the rugged horizons but there is still a lot to see within the local area. The Alice Springs Desert Park is a must-see, as well as the Frontier Camel Farm. It is the perfect destination for camping as Alice Springs is always a one-of-a-kind adventure!
Kangaroo Valley, NSW
Located just outside of Sydney, Kangaroo Valley is a lush river region that falls within the boundaries of Morton National Park, one of the largest parks in New South Wales. Kangaroo Valley a great camping spot as there is plenty of activities to keep you entertained such as fishing, cycling, bush walking or canoeing and a range of amazing wildlife to see. On top of that the Kangaroo Valley is one of Australia’s leading eco responsible tourist destinations.
