Best camping spots Australia
On our 17000 km roadtrip through Australia we saw a lot of camping grounds. Most of them were free some were paid. Sometimes it was just a 10KM furter drive to save 80 dollar a night! I selected my best camping spots Australia for you. Let’s help each other. If you have awesome spots to share, leave a comment! 🙂
Oh the one in the picture on top of this article didn’t make it in the top 10 😀
How can I find those awesome campgrounds?

Perfect campground with a nice sunset on the lake. On the jetty you can find some wild pelicans. The campground has nice new toilets an even toilets for disabled people.
7 Surry ridge camp ground (Cobboboonee National Park)
This campground in the middle of the park is a nice spot with firepitches. In the afternoon and morning you can see Walibies on this campground looking for food. When you want to walk, there is a nice small loop or a real hike to other campgrounds in the area.

This campground you can find in In the middle of Warren National Park. Has a stunning, campkitchen and provides firewood to cook on. When you are looking for some adrenaline go for the 65 meter high Dave Evans bicentennial tree!
3 Mikkira campground
This place definatly deserves a place in the top 3. The grassfield is awesome to camp, you can make a bonfire and see the sunset and sunrise with kangaroos. But the best about this place are the koala’s all over the place! Do you see this picture below? Just 5 meters from my tent!
2 Fowlers bay (sand dunes)
The best milkyway I ever saw was at this stunning campspot. We were alone camping in the sanddunes. On the sanddunes you can see sunset over land and sunrise over the sea.
1 Uluru free campground
The best campground was the free campspot at Uluru. From our spot (only 10km from Uluru-Kata-Tjuta National Park) we could see sunrise and sunset on Uluru! When you park your tent at the right spot you can see it from your tent! Click here for more info about the free campingspot at Uluru.
