Welcome to Camping Tasmania, and our list of free sample camping itineraries in Tassie. Contact us for customised camping itineraries, but below you will find links to some basic, fairly standard camping itineraries Tasmania that people chose to follow and that allows you to see different parts of Tasmania when tent camping, in your campervan, motorhome, camper trailer, or another vehicle. Tasmania has long been a popular destination for touring holidays, where people fly to Hobart or Launceston, hire a car, and set about driving around the island in around 7-10 days. On such trips, people will experience the East Coast regions, the West Coast, the South, South East, and if time permits perhaps the far North West Coast. An example of a region-specific driving itinerary is as follows:
Depart the capital Hobart and drive to the small East Coast town of Orford. Orford features clean, picturesque beaches that include Raspins, Millingtons, Spring, and Rheban. Take time to enjoy one of several enjoyable walks in the area including the Convict Trail along the northern bank of the Prosser River on an old convict road, the coastal walk along the cliff tops between East Shelly Beach and Spring Beach. Continue to the small town of Triabunna to buy a ticket for the 30-minute passenger ferry ride to Maria Island National Park where native animals roam free in this wildlife haven – wombats, white Wallabies, and Echidnas are common on Maria Island. Visit the remains of the Darlington convict settlement dating back to 1825 and wander among the ruins of the mess room, miller’s cottage, barn, hop kiln, chapel, prison cells, and religious instructor’s house. Take a short walk to view the spectacular Painted Cliffs and Fossil Cliffs. Return to mainland Tasmania by ferry and stay overnight in Orford, Triabunna, or drive a little further north to Swansea.
Freycinet National Park: – The Freycinet National Park is a very popular tourist destination in Tasmania and offers a wide variety of activities including bushwalking, camping, cruises, and surfing. You can take a walk to the pass overlooking magnificent Wineglass Bay, walk the entire length of the Freycinet Peninsula on a three-day walk or try less strenuous activities like beach strolls, swimming, or wildlife spotting. In this area, it is common to see the White Bellied Sea Eagle, dolphins, and whales during the season. Pademelons, Wallabies, and Kangaroos are also common. Freycinet National Park features spectacular granite mountains and is surrounded by azure bays and white sandy beaches. The spectacular, breathtaking peaks of the Hazards welcome visitors as you enter the National Park. Freycinet is effectively two eroded blocks of granite; the Hazards and the Mt Graham/Mt Freycinet sections of the peninsula and that are joined by a sand isthmus. All visitors to Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet area are required to purchase a National Parks and Wildlife Pass. See Camping Friendly Beaches : Camping River Rocks
