Best Free Camps SA & NT


It’s spring time and the weather is warming up, holidays are beckoning and caravanners and campers are planning their next outing.

When planning a long road trip it can be good to mix up your accommodation options between caravan parks, national parks, stations and free camps and all appeal for different reasons.

With a caravan park you can book ahead and be assured of a site, national parks are great for being in amongst nature but don’t allow dogs, stations can be a wonderful way to see the real Australia and can have more relaxed rules than other stays and then there is free camping.

For those that haven’t tried it, it can be a daunting idea, but these days many people are trying it, with most caravans coming standard with 12 volt power, solar panels and water storage, not to mention ensuite bathrooms.

Wrecks & Ruins of Innes National Park

Summer holidays are on the horizon and a lot of holidays are being planned involving heading to the beaches and coast to make the most of long hot days ahead. Many in South Australia will look towards Yorke Peninsula and a relaxing break in any one of the many small towns dotted along the coast. If you do visit the peninsula you should plan a journey to the bottom end, and Innes National Park. Innes is a park filled with breathtaking coastal scenery, picture worthy (instagrammable) roads and tracks throughout, wandering wildlife, eye catching wildflowers, accessible shipwrecks and even…a ghost town.
