Australia is a huge country, and if you were to fly between the cities and main spots you would end up missing some of the best and most beautiful parts of the sunburnt country.

The best way to travel through Australia is undoubtedly in a campervan, so check out DriveNow’s Australian motorhome rentals and be sure to stop by some of the best campsites in Australia for this season:


Mitchell Falls, WA

Sure, it can be a bit tough to travel to the remote Mitchell Plateau, since you’ll need to drive around 16 hours from Kununurra but it’s well worth it once you see all four tiers of the spectacular and unique Mitchell Falls. You’ll need to be completely self-sufficient if you visit this camp site since it’s one of the most inaccessible and remote terrains in Australia.

Booderee National Park, NSW

Located in Jervis Bay, Booderee National Park has the whitest sand in the world. You can find three camping areas without sand and in the park you may be lucky enough to see southern right and humpback whales begin their migration if you visit in June, July, September, October or November.

Iga Warta, SA

The name literally means “place of the native orange tree” in the language of the traditional owners of the area- the Adnyamathanha people. This campsite is actually located on an indigenous-owned sanctuary and you’ll be able to eat off the land here, and enjoy a medicine tour of the area and sample edible plants. For those who prefer to be comfortable, there are also luxury safari tents available.


Bamurru Plains, NT

For those who don’t like to rough it but still like to get close to nature, you’ll find Bamurru Plains close to Kakadu National Park. This is the ultimate for those who enjoy luxury camping since there are nine safari suites with comfortable beds waiting for you each night when you’ve finished exploring the area.

Grampians National Park, VIC

If you want to ditch the tent and sleep under the stars, The Fortress is the place to do it. The rocky overhang is actually the first part of a three-day hike and you’ll need to register with Brambuk which is the cultural and national park centre.

Lake Eyrie National Park, SA

This campsite is the lowest in Australia and is only accessible by four-wheel-drive. Be sure to visit during the cooler months so you can explore the salt-crusted surface of the 9,500 square km lake. Located 12 m below sea level, this is the place to go if you want to see stark wilderness and a beauty rarely seen elsewhere. You’ll find campsites at Muloorina Station, ABC Bay and Halligan Bay.

Lucky Bay, WA

If you like the idea of camping next to sun, sand and surf, head to Lucky Bay in Cape Le Grand National Park. Located 40 minutes from Esperance, you’ll find 5km of sparkling blue water and plenty of bushwalks for those who like to get active.
