The prettiest camping spots around Australia

Keen to get away this Christmas?

Trying to decide how to spend your summer holidays?

The best thing about the end of the year as that we’re all getting some time off to spend without families and friends.

Most of the time we want to head away from home and spend some time relaxing on a far away tropical island. However, sometimes our paycheques don’t allow that sort of luxury.

We’ve collected six of the best beach camping spots right in our backyard of Australia. There’s one for almost every state.

Imagine setting up a tent and campfire by these crystal clear waters surrounded by kangaroos, wallabies, possums, wombats and echidnas. Then fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing. 

NOAH BEACH, DAINTREE NATIONAL PARK, QLD

  • 80 kilometres north of Port Douglas 
  • Advance bookings are essential
