Camping Arthur River

The Manuka campground in beautiful Arthur River is a very large camping ground and camping area located on the right just before you reach the Arthur River Ranger Station. Manuka is a large grassed area and there are plenty of very good campsites with good shelter. It can be very windy in this part of Tassie; this campground is ideal for families and is suitable for campervans, motorhomes and caravans. There are several campgrounds in this area; Manuka, Peppermint and Prickly Wattle campsites are all located in close proximity to Arthur River and all offer secluded and shady sites, with most serviced by river water (water must be boiled) and pit toilets. At Manuka, fire drums are provided, however, wood should be used sparingly and any you must pay close attention to any fire restrictions that are common during warmer summer months. The fishing is excellent at Arthur River; Salmon from November to April and both Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout can be caught in freshwater in season. If you are into beach fishing, the sand near Arthur River Bridge is firm and allows most vehicles to drive onto the beach where you can fish from the shore. Camping fees, which are very reasonable, should be paid at the Ranger’s Office. If the office is closed, there is a 24-hour self-service facility located at the Temma and Rebecca Rd intersection or at the Arthur River Parks and Wildlife Service Office. Two adults can stay at the Manuka campground, serviced site, 30 nights for a total of $120. This is a great campground, but please note facilities at Manuka Campground Arthur River Tasmania are basic and offer water and toilet facilities only, Campers are advised to bring their own camp showers if you are planning to stay for an extended period. There are no rubbish bins provided, meaning campers must take their own rubbish with them. There are no powered sites available at Manuka campground. Dogs are OK, but they must be kept under control and on a lead at all times. See also: Camping Nelson Bay
