Christmas is the most expensive time of year and for most of us we resign ourselves to not going away. However I have found some really cool family camping spots to escape to for a few days that are definitely affordable & offer the chance to chill out and have a laugh with your kids….
Bruny Island, Tasmania
Bruny Island provides the ultimate Tasmanian wilderness experience; the kids will likely see fur seals, fairy penguins, white wallaby. There are plenty of places to camp for free around the island.
Fraser Island, Queensland
Fraser Island has one of the world’s longest beaches, The 75-Mile beach is great for four-wheel-drive camping – it is so big that you feel like you’re the only one on the beach.
Yuraygir National Park, NSW
Yuraygir National Park has the longest expanse of undeveloped coastline in NSW. There is a choice of campsites near swimming holes, hidden beaches and lush vegetation.
Also worth mentioning…
Johanna Beach, Great Ocean Walk, Victoria is one of many accessible beaches on the shipwreck coast with drive-in campsites. The kids will love spotting kangaroos, echidnas and birds.
