The best caravan spots in Australia

Wed 17 May

Whether you're chasing the perfect view, or escaping the stresses of life, packing up a caravan and hitting the open road is the perfect holiday idea all year round.

But in this vast country of ours, choosing just one spot to go can prove almost impossible! We've spoken to caravaners from around Australia, and listed their go-to spots for you to try next!

Freycinet National Park, Tasmania

Whether it's fishing and kayaking in the pristine bay, relaxing on one of the world's top 10 rated beaches at Wineglass Bay, eating, hiking or more, Freycinet National Park in Tasmania is one of the most scenic and diverse places in Tasmania, Australia and the world.

Only a couple of hours from both Hobart and Launceston, Freycinet National Park is perfect as a go-to holiday spot, or an overnight stop as you explore everything Tasmania has to offer.

Small enough to drive around in a matter of hours, Tasmania can entertain you for a weekend or for weeks!

But be quick, there are limited spaces available at Freycinet National Park in the warmer months and they sell out fast!

The Daintree Rainforest, Queensland

To experience the best of Australian nature, the Daintree Rainforest in North Queensland is a must on your bucket list.

As Australia's largest rainforest, the Daintree offers a rare combination of wet tropical forests, with beautiful beaches and reefs right next door.

Given its tropical location and warmth, the Daintree is best enjoyed between May and September, as the perfect escape while the rest of the country shivers through winter.

Wolfe Creek, Western Australia

Do you dare?

Since the release of the 2005 Australia horror film of the same name, Wolfe Creek has become the stuff of nightmares for tourists and Aussies alike.

But away from fictional Australian bushmen chasing hapless British tourists through the outback, Wolf Creek remains one of Australia's most stunning locations with an incredible history.

800km west of Broome, the Wolfe Creek Crater is the world's second largest meteorite crater. The crater measures almost 900 metres wide, 60 metres deep, and is estimated to be over 300,000 years old.

The crater walk takes roughly two hours to do, but you can hike around it's perimeter for hours.

But be sure to give yourself enough time to be safely back in your caravan by sundown, you never know who's out there.
