This easy-to-use website includes free-camping maps and a database. It displays only independent (not commercial) camping locations and is a big help if you want to cut accommodation costs. It offers convenient features such as:
- The coordinates of each camping site can be easily downloaded to your GPS;
- Links to regional tourist reports; and
- Interactive maps that allow you to instantly add free-camping areas you know – so you can help other RV community members.
This website provides a full list of Australian caravan parks, contact details, a Google map of each park’s location, as well as a separate DFP list. Most listings offer links to recent reports from RV owners.
Getting a look at a park before you book is always a good idea. This website offers a huge gallery of Aussie photos.
This is another very popular, non-commercial website that rates the quality of Australian caravan parks by the people who stay in them – the RV owners. Campgrounds and roadside rest areas are also included.
