Great place to explore x 4WD. All the forests are open, for a start.

From a local.

Before moving here we spent around 4-6 months a year every year since 2008 camping throughout Tas. Best time to visit Tassis is Feb, Mar and April as the weather is more settled and the tourists have largely gone home.

Below is a list of what in my opinion are 10 of the best campsites in Tasmania, apart from those the we don't tell anyone about

1. Granville Harbour, west coast fishing town. north of GH there is a public track that runs north to the Pieman River. Is is 4WD only, about 30k long. There are hundreds of campsites along its length with ocean front or behind the dunes. tracks diverge everywhere. KEEP TO THE HIGH GROUND.
2. Arthur River, west coast. National Park operated campgrounds. some in NP, some in conservation area. Sites range from isolated to in town with flushing toilets
3. Black River Campground, NP operated in conservation area, North Coast
4. Little Mussleroe Bay. Far NE coast. Small isolated campground in sheltered area, sites run down to water.
5. Bay of Fires Conservation Area. North coast, north of St. Helens. Half a dozen NP operated grounds spread throughout. IMO the best is Cosy Corner.
6. Chain of Lagoons, NP operated, east coast south of St Helens
7. Cloudy Bay on Bruny Island. Drive along hard sand beach to NP operated camp
8. Cockle Creek. The furtherest south you can drive in Oz. spectacular beaches, great walks.
9. Mt Field NP. Campground at Park Headquarters. Very structured, but well maintained, hot showers and power. Great Walks.
10. Lagoon of Islands. Bush campground with no facilities. Hydro owned, closed when dam spilling. Off Interlaken Rd south of Liawenee (A5)_ in the highlands


Camping is tolerated pretty much anywhere in Tas as long as you are sensible. we have never been moved on. Most towns have a free stopover, some with hot showers. St Helens, Fingal, St Marys. Kempton, Bothwell. some even have free power, Kempton, Fingal..
If you have a tablet, download a copy of WikiCamps, it is the best app for Tassie.

Thanks for that Pete, we are really looking forward to this trip I feel that 4 weeks might not be long enough but we can always come back another time when we retire

Thanks again

Noel
