Best Campsites and Camp Grounds In Tasmania

Tasmania is about 240 kms off the coast of mainland Australia and appears quite remote but it still receives quite a lot of tourists every year. One of the main reasons for travellers to visit Tasmania is it's beautiful scenery and camping facilities. Tassie has some of the most remote and peaceful camp sites in Australia. It is one of the best places to isolate yourself from daily life and spend a quiet and peaceful holiday in solitude. Most of the camping grounds in Tasmania are located beside beaches, inside national parks, and on the banks of picturesque rivers and lakes.

Camp sites maintained by Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service are in excellent locations and have basic facilities required for camping. Please make sure that you get your parks pass before going camping in Tasmania. A full list of all camp sites in Tasmania and parks passes are available on the TasParks Website.
