Paid camping in Australia

Besides the many free camp spots you may also choose something more luxurious as a campground. Here, however, you will have to pay for all the facilities. A cheaper solution, which also has some more luxury, are the bush campgrounds. These campgrounds (often in National Parks) have many amenities such as clean showers/toilets, hot water, drinking water etc. In most cases you will pay around $ 8.- per night to stay on such a bush campground. (which is still a lot cheaper than a hostel in town)

 

Sometimes these bush campgrounds are monitored by a ranger, a kind of forester, who will see to a correct use of all facilities and who collects the money that you are supposed to drop in the money box daily. The so called ‘honesty system’. Often, especially in low season, the ranger doesn’t stop by every day and many backpackers take advantage of this by disregarding the honesty system staying for free. Please try to give at least some sort of donation, up to your means, in order to keep the bush facility open which simply costs money to maintain it.

 

Another inexpensive option for a fairly luxurious way of camping is to go camping at a roadhouse. These are often gas stations (mostly in the middle of nowhere) with a campground at the back. They are often very cheap, think about $ 5 per person per night. The price/quality ratio is very good. You get clean facilities, sometimes even a swimming pool, (almost) free BBQ's and places in the shade. Quite a luxurious stopover in the dessert! You will meet many Australians on holiday on these roadhouses and therefore it is a good place to exchange information and other experiences. (TIP: 'talk to the locals.’)

 

n the city (or nearby), you will often find expensive campgrounds such as BIG4 which are the most luxurious caravan parks there are. Also possible to rent a trailer or even a small house. Of course you can also simply put up your own tent, but the price will easily go up to a $ 25 per night (per tent). It is worth your money though if you are attached to facilities like swimming pools, a shop, a children's playground, bike rental, etc.
