Camping Australia

What is the best place to camp?
The best place to camp is the beach. You are going to be sleeping with the sound of the waves. Just be sure to camp a little far from the ocean so the water won’t get inside your tent. Also, put on a lot of insect lotion as there will be a lot of bugs especially at night who will try to bite you when you least expect it. There will be some snails and baby crabs who may bite you when you least expect it so better wear some protective clothing for your skin. The last thing you would want to happen is for those things to interrupt your beauty sleep. After all, you would want to get up early just in time to see the sunrise.

Is it illegal to camp in a park?
Yes, it is illegal to camp in a public park. Besides, when you set up a tent there then a lot of people will notice you. Some would go to the authorities in hopes of bringing justice to it. You may get fined for doing that since it is common sense to not do that as there are better places to go camping. It would make no sense to camp in a park that is just near your house. The whole purpose of camping is to commune with nature so it would be better to do it in the forest. Also, it would not make any sense to camp in a park since that is not the purpose of it being there. It is for kids to play.

Can you camp anywhere in Victoria?
You can’t camp anywhere but there are a lot of campgrounds that allow you to camp for free. Of course, you can’t camp in the middle of the highway as you will cause some traffic to occur. If that happens, then people will think you are crazy so better avoid doing something out of the ordinary so you won’t catch attention. Just like any other country in the world, it would be better to camp at a place that is appropriate.

Where can you camp for free in Victoria?
There are a lot of places where you can camp for free in Victoria. The first place that comes to mind is Anderson’s campground so better arrive early there so you can get a good spot. The place would usually attract a crowd which means you can meet fellow campers there especially at night when it is time to set up a fire. Another great place to camp for free would be Blue Pool so you can enjoy some freshwater swimming. Thus, better not forget to bring your swimming attire there. There are also a few spots to do some hiking if you are up for that type of activity.

How many tents can you have on a campsite?
You can bring a maximum of 3 tents on a campsite, however, that would still depend on the campsite you have chosen as some campsites have their own rules. If you brought your entire family with you, there is no doubt 3 tents are more than enough for that. Besides, it would be impossible for more than 3 tents to fit in your vehicle. You may end up having one of them blocking your view and you may get into an accident. In that situation, you must always prioritize your safety as you are driving a vehicle.

What does walk up mean camping?
It means the campsite does not accept reservations so you need to come as early as possible. Thus, you must set your alarm clock at an early time so you can arrive there early. If you get there and you see all the slots are full then you have no choice but to go to another campsite. The only exception would be if you see someone there that you know and they are willing to share the slot with you. However, it is pretty doubtful for that to happen because there are some campsites that do accept reservations online and that means you will feel confident about having a spot there.
