Where To Stay In Tasmania: Camping and Resources

One of our most frequently asked questions about planning a visit to Tasmania is: where can I pull up for the night? The state is a scenic camping oasis offering plenty of unbeatable natural destinations and great caravan parks to enjoy during your stay. But, where can you camp overnight?

Below you will find valuable resources to help you plan your holiday in Australia’s beautiful island state.

National Parks

Approximately 40% of Tasmania is protected in National Parks and reserves, offering visitors a range of unique wilderness encounters in untouched environments. Visiting these parks in a campervan or motorhome allows you the opportunity to enjoy a truly enhanced self-contained experience. Most national parks offer excellent facilities for campervans and motorhomes for a small fee.

There are no rubbish facilities offered within Tasmania’s National Parks and visitors must remove all waste from their campsite when packing up to leave.  For more information on where you can go within each of Tasmania’s national parks visit Camping Information on the Tasmanian Parks page. Cruisin’ recommends that all campervans and motorhomes charge at a 240 volt powered outlet at least every second night, so be sure to include powered sites into your holiday route.

Caravan Parks

Tasmania is home to more than 50 caravan parks situated around the state, some offering fantastic facilities including onsite amenities, spacious powered sites for motorhomes and ensuite facilities. The Caravan Park and Holiday Park Guide is supplied in hard-copy to all Cruisin’ customers to help you plan your holiday as you go.

Cruisin’ offers all guests 10% off at Barilla Holiday Park just around the corner from the Hobart Office. This Park is perhaps one of the best in the state, offering an onsite mini-golf course, mouth-watering wood fired pizza restaurant and spacious powered sites with access to water and a dump point.

Free Camping Resources

Free camping facilities can be found both inside and outside of National Parks and Reserves. Cruisin’ campervans and motorhomes are well equipped to deal with free camping, with all offering kitchen facilities and most with an on board shower and toilet. Tasmania has a number of great resources to help you plan your free camping holiday. The Camping Tasmania website provides a comprehensive list of destinations to visit as well as information about fees and onsite amenities.

Another great resource for planning your holiday in Tasmania is the WikiCamps application for smart phones and tablets. This popular app will guide you to the nearest camp ground, provide information about facilities and has a 15 day free trial before charging a set fee of $5. Anyone who wants to engage with a lively Tasmanian camping online community is encouraged to visit the Camping Sites around Tasmania Facebook page where you can find expert local information and ask your own questions.
