Tasmania

We'll be taking two cars and two CT's to Tassie later this year. Does anyone know any "must stay" camp spots anywhere? I have only ever stopped overnight in Tassie during a crayfish boat race from Queenscliff to Strachan, so basically all I've ever seen of Tassie is the Strachan main wharf, main street and pub!

just love Tasmania,i could keep going back,have been 3 times.

IMO i loved Mole Creek Caravan Park.
http://www.molecreek.net.au

It is not a caravan park as such ,it is so relaxing.

Limited facilities but surrounded by such beauty.
Close to the caves and great walking.
Every afternoon we would be in awe of the platypus swimming along the creek beside our camp site.

we also enjoy staying at Lake St Clair.
We get the ferry to the other end of the Lake and hike back along the Lake.
This is the end of the cradle Mtn overland trek.
Great facilities here.

We had 3 1/2 wks last time and were rushed at the end,so much to see,not enough time.

Mole creek looks like a lovely spot. I can see why you keep going back.

Have a great trip Amanda! I went to Tassie for the first time last year and I've got to tell you, it is gorgeous! We only went for a long weekend and stayed at B&B's etc but I can recommend the Port Arthur area. It truly is stunning!

straughn. out past the airfield near the plantations on the peninsula towards hells gate.

Basially all of the west coast is beautiful. If you can brave the cold get upto Lake pedder area. Beautiful! Drop toilets, covered cooking/kitchen area and firewood is supplied!

Also up north near stanley theres some good camping spots with beach access. been fairly popular so be prepared to take home some other buggers rubbish when you clean up your site.

Hey amanda

Have you checked out our blog? We spent 3 weeks in Tassie (Click on the link below and then click the Tasmania link at the top of the blog that will give you all Tassie posts)

To answer directly - There is a free spot on the Bay of Fires - North of Binalong Bay - was right overlooking the ocean
We built a fire and there was not a sole around - magical

Only just noticed this thread. I'll second that Lake St Clair is a magic spot to camp!

Hi Amanda,

There is a great little camping site near the Hobart Airport hasn't been there very long. Its a great place to pull up for day trippers eg. Richmond approx(10 min), Hobart City (10 min) Tasman Peninsula (1hr+). We live in Tassie and we are only to happy to help

Not sure Amanda will get your message, she might even be there now. She has been MIA for some time.

Your info might well be useful to others in future times, thank you hc1.
