We are putting up free camping recommendations on the site, and are are calling fellow TAWKers (families Travelling Australia With Kids) to share the great spots that you have found. NOT forgetting that by 'free' we usually mean without amenities, they may incur a small charge. Not usually as expensive as a caravan park though.
Help and be helped by submitting your free favourite camp spot below.
Together we can make this the most interactive and friendly community of families Travelling Australia With Kids and here we can 'TAWK' about it!
(The TAWK site is new, so bookmark it and come back often and of course join in and make it better!)
If you are a new TAWKer I'll just clarify again what Free Camping is - as I remember it being a shock to me; The term 'Free Camping' does not always mean the camping is monetary FREE. More often than not, there will be a fee to be paid to enter a National Park and you may also find a nominal fee per person. As explained on our Free Camping page, (which you should have a little look at if you have not already), I always correlate the words 'free camping' to; without electricity, water and general amenities.
All the Free Campiong recommendations here are from YOU our amazing TAWKers or places that we have been to personally. We encourage all of you TAWKers to join in and help other families by going to the bottom of the page and telling us about one that YOU love. (You can even upload a couple of photos. So help us to help fellow TAWKers to make this the most interactive web site for families travelling our wonderful country.
Future TAWKers will thank you all!
