Free Camping in Hobart

Dianas Basin campground, close St Helens North East Coast Tasmania free camping up to 4-weeks, no charges, no bookings & unpowered sites only. Ranger patrolled area, to camp at Dianas Basin you will need to be largely self-sufficient other than 2 single pit toilets – 1 each at the day use area, and 1 at the northern end of the campground (this was not operating during our last visit in November 2018). Dianas Basin is a popular campground for fishermen, and for watersports including boating, kayaking and canoeing. We highly recommend this great camping area, featuring a lagoon on one side (closer to the main highway) and Beaumaris Beach on the other. Campers can swim, surf and fish or walk north or south along the beach for hours and often have the beach entirely to your self. Please note, that whilst dogs are allowed at the camping areas (on leads and under control), they are but permitted on the beach. The camping sites at the northern end (turn right at the fork in the road when accessing Dianas Basin off the main road A3) offer sheltered sites amongst the coastal scrub, with many large enough for big rigs. To access the Dianas Basin campground, turn off the Tasman Hwy (A3) onto a dirt road at the signpost, which is 9 km south of the small fishing and tourist town of St Helens. To camp at Dianas Basin, you will need to be largely self-sufficient, and carry your own firewood and drinking water. Off-road motorcycles strictly prohibited.
