If you’re looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city or busy and noisy campsites overrun with tourists and families, you’ve come to the right place.
Finding a peaceful spot to park your caravan or campervan can be a bit of a struggle. But we understand the need for seclusion every now and then! So we’ve put together a list of a few quiet places to set up camp. Get ready to relax and enjoy the sounds of trees swaying in the wind, and the call of native Australian birds.
Johanna Beach Campground, Victoria
Ideally situated just off the Great Ocean Road and close to the Twelve Apostles, you couldn’t get a better spot for sightseeing! Johanna Beach camping grounds offer drive-in campsites situated on sloped, grassy areas adjacent to the beach. The facilities are quite basic, with composting toilets and limited, untreated tank water. Sites are also unpowered and campfires are not permitted, so if you intend on cooking in your campervan, you will need to bring your own generator. A small price to pay for such undisturbed scenery!
Conto Campground, WA
Conto Campground is set amongst shady woodland with a range of facilities including toilets, BBQs, picnic tables and fire rings. It’s a great launching point for exploring the Margaret River region of WA, as it’s just a short drive away from sights like the Lake Cave, Cave Works and Boranup Forest. Take the track down to Springs Beach, a popular place for fishing, and see if you can score a catch. Or access the Cape to Cape walking trail directly from the campsite (don’t worry, you don’t have to tackle the whole thing!). The camping grounds can get busy during school holidays, but there are plenty of places to lose yourself in the peace and quiet of the surrounding bushlands.
Halls Gap Lakeside Tourist Park, Victoria
Halls Gap is the perfect place to situate yourself if you want to explore the breathtaking views of the Grampians National Park. Halls Gap Lakeside Tourist Park is just one of the many campsites dotted around the area, but is particularly accommodating of motorhomes, campervans and caravans. It offers top-notch facilities, with individual bathrooms, powered sites and water facilities. There’s even a wood-fired pool on the grounds for Winter! If you want to rough it trekking around the national park during the day, and come back to a few creature comforts at night, Halls Gap Lakeside Tourist Park is the way to go.
Tooloom Falls Campground, NSW
Be lulled to sleep by the rushing falls in the evening, and wake up to bird calls in the morning – bliss! Tooloom Falls campground is located above the falls, on the banks of Tooloom Creek. It’s a great little spot for swimming and canoeing. It’s also close to a range of walking tracks through Tooloom National Park, including a trek that will take you to Tooloom lookout, where you can see the Great Dividing Range in the distance. The campsite includes basic facilities such as a composting toilet, but visitors need to bring their own drinking water and generator if they wish to use electricity.
Wilpena Pound Campground & Willow Springs Bush Camping, SA
If you’re a keen hiker, you won’t want to miss the amazing gorges, plains and lakes of the Flinders Ranges. Wilpena Pound Campground is a convenient site to base yourself while you explore this rugged and romantic region. There’s plenty of room, with forty powered campsites suitable for caravans, campervans and camper-trailers, and many more unpowered sites. The campsite is fully equipped with bathroom and laundry facilities, a swimming pool, restaurant and a general store nearby. It’s also very close to the visitor information centre, where you can book tours guided by locals and even flights over the breathtaking ranges.
If you’re looking for something smaller and more secluded, try Willow Springs bush camping area. It’s set on a family-run sheep property North of Wilpena. From here you can go adventure four-wheel driving and bushwalking. But make sure you book ahead because there are only six campsites!
