Camps Australia Wide 

(7th Edition now available)

We spent most of 2010 and 2011 using Camps 5, which literally paid for itself after only 2 nights of free bush camping and since then we have upgraded to the Camps 6 edition (with camps snaps). These great books not only have the most detailed and comprehensive listing of free and budget campsites across the whole of Australia, it includes detailed travel and road maps by HEMA. No need for a separate road atlas or paper maps.

As you follow your route on the maps you can easily see where the next campsite is, use the number to look up detailed directions and vital information about the campsite.

important info such as: is water available? are there toilets? is it dog friendly? is it free or pay? are there bbq’s? is it suitable for larger rigs? Not only great for helping find campsites but also great for helping you choose which site is suitable for your needs.

Includes a complete list of dump points, rest areas, community camps, station stays, National Parks, State Forest’s, remote caravan parks, pet friendly sites and GPS co-ordinates for easy navigation.

BUT………. We got the B4, spiral bound version with CAMP SNAPS. So most sites have a photo of the campground so you have a bit of a preview of what the area looks like before you get there. So with even more info for helping us pick our next campsite.

We all love saving money, especially when travelling but this book will also show you where some of the best campsites around the country are. And most of the best campsites are free!

And when Jane begs for some creature comforts, a proper shower and some retail therapy, we have also received the Caravan Parks Australia Wide- 2nd edition. Basically it  gives you all the info that Camps 6 gives you but for Caravan Parks. It includes AAA star ratings, facilities, contact details, pricing guides etc. I’m sure this will come in very handy when wanting to know what caravan parks exist in the next town we visit now we can just look it up and choose one! Simple…..

There would not be many travellers out there that would not know what these series of books are. If you mention the “camps book” or “the  camps bible” to any traveller they will know what you are talking about. Many people will talk about campsites they have stayed at and most will refer to them by their number in the Camps Australia Wide rather than the name of the site. This is how important and popular these books are. And updates can be obtained from the internet.

You can buy them direct from the publisher’s website, all great bookshops, NRMA and RACV offices and various travel, 4×4 and camping shops!
