If you enjoy camping and the great outdoors, then there are a few campsites across Australia that you simply need to make it out to at some point in your lifetime. From Jervis Bay to Queensland and everywhere in between, we've compiled a list of the top five camping spots in all of Australia. Figure out which ones are your "must-sees," then gather the gear you need from Urban Outback Gear and hit the road on an adventure you'll never forget.
Green Patch (Jervis Bay)
What's better than camping nearby a place that has access to a sparkling, white sand beach? That's exactly what you'll get when you park at Green Patch Camping Area, which is actually located within Booderee National Park. This is also a great place to camp if you enjoy bird watching; just make sure you have the right gear to get a good look at the all bird species that flock this area. A pair of Carson Caribou waterproof binoculars will come in handy here!
Black Diamond Nitro 22L Hiking Pack
The Whitsundays (Queensland)
This is another amazing camping area that has direct beach access. However, it's definitely a smaller and more intimate campsite, so if you plan on staying here (especially during peak season), we recommend that you book as far in advance as possible to guarantee a spot. While you're here, be sure to take advantage of the snorkelling adventures offered off of Whitehaven Beach.
Innes National Park (South Australia)
Located on the Yorke Peninsula, this is an absolutely breathtaking place to camp if you enjoy being near the water and being able to spot lots of wildlife without having to leave your campsite. Many of the campsites on this peninsula offer everything from surfing and snorkelling to fishing and diving. There are also some fantastic spots for camping nearby, so be sure to load up your backpack or gear slinger for a day of exploring the outdoors; we recommend this Black Diamond Nitro 22L Day Hiking Pack.
Halls Gap (Victoria)
Ready to get away from the water and further inland? If so, then Halls Gap, located in the Grampians Mountain Range in Victoria, is the place to be. When you camp here, you'll literally feel as though you've been sucked into a beautiful landscape painting. Enjoy exploring the mountains with a day of hiking (and keep hydrated with this CamelBak 1.5L Hydration Pack), or take it easy by checking out one of the many local wineries.
Mount Field National Park (Tasmania)
Finally, we couldn't call this list complete without mentioning the campsites available in Mount Field National Park. Here, you can explore rainforest, alpine terrain, and everything in between...all within the same park! You'll also have the opportunity to see the amazing Russel Falls for yourself, so be sure to bring your camera.
Australia certainly has some of the hands-down best camping facilities in the entire world. With so many great places to camp across Australia, where will your first stop be?
