Prickly Wattle Campground Camping Area manuka

This very large camping ground and camping area Manuka, Arthur River is located on the right just before you reach the Arthur River Ranger Station. It is a large grassed area and there are heaps of very good campsites with ood shelter from the wind that can be strong in this area. Ideal for families. Ideal for campervans, motorhomes and caravans. The Prickly Wattle Campsite is located just out of the Arthur River community and features excellent secluded sites, with most serviced by river water (water must be boiled) and pit toilets. Fire drums are provided, however wood should be used sparingly and any fire restrictions are often in place during warmer Summer months. Arthur River is the name of both a river and a small township on the northern part of the West Coast of Tasmania, Australia. At the 2006 census, Arthur River and the surrounding area had a permanent population of just 121 people. The fishing is very good at Arthur River; Salmon from November to April and Trout in season. Mostly firm sand allows most vehicles to drive onto the beach to launch a boat or fish off the beach. Off shore islands interrupt the breaking waves, while rock pools are common and interesting.
