Wondering where to head on your next offroad caravan trip? Check out our quick wrap on some of the best spots to set up camp. This is just a small sample of what Australia has to offer offroad caravanners, but it will whet your appetite and possibly introduce you to some new locations.

Abercrombie River National Park, New South Wales

Home to some of the most diverse campgrounds and best 4WD tracks in the state, Abercrombie River National Park is located roughly three and a half hours west of Sydney. There are four main campgrounds in the area — Bummaroo Ford (accessible by 2WD), Silent Creek, The Sink and The Beach. Our pick is The Beach, a secluded camping spot located down a steep trail next to a sandy stretch by the water. Head a little further upstream and you’ll find a waterhole that’s ideal for swimming.

Talbotville Historic Township Camping Area, Victoria

Ah, Victoria — the High Country 4WD Mecca of Australia. There are so many fantastic campsites here but one of the best has to be Talbotville — an abandoned gold mining town north west of Dargo and best accessed by 4WD. The town is no longer there, meaning you have perfectly level, green-grassed camping beside beautiful Crooked River — not to mention endless days of 4WD tracks in the surrounding area. Plenty of space to set up camp plus a new drop toilet and fire pit.

Mount Augustus, Western Australia

It wouldn’t be a real Aussie road trip without at least one Big Thing, and what could be bigger than the world’s biggest rock? Mount Augustus is more than twice the size of Uluṟu, although a surprising number of Australians have never even heard of it. Stay at Mount Augustus Tourist Park for spacious, green-grassed powered or unpowered bush camping with toilets and hot showers.

1770, Queensland

Located on the Queensland coast, nestled between Rockhampton and Bundaberg, 1770 is an idyllic camping destination offering pristine beaches, loads of fishing and diving, and abundant wildlife. The Town of 1770 has two good caravan parks — one on the shores of Bustard Bay and one that is a 10 minute walk to the surf beach. However, our pick is Eurimbula Creek camping area which sits on a secluded beach in Bustard Bay within Eurimbula National Park — a low-key spot that is perfect for boating and fishing.

Niggly Cave, Junee Cave State Reserve, Tasmania

The Junee Cave is just far enough off the beaten track to make it less touristy than other camping spots but it’s still only 100km from Hobart. The huge system of nearly 300 caves includes Niggly Cave which is one of Australia’s deepest at 375m. You can set up camp at nearby Land of the Giants Caravan Park, which has sites suitable for campers, caravans and campervans as well as a shower block, kitchen and BBQ area.
