Top Campsites Bay Of Fires
Camping Bay of Fires, without doubt, the best camping options in one relatively close location in Tasmania. There is possibly nowhere else on earth, where you can camp for up to 4-weeks in a row for no cost in an area as beautiful as Bay Of Fires. The pure white beaches, the lichen-covered rocks and the azure blue waters are simply stunning in every respect. The popularity of this area is quite amazing, especially during Summer from mid-December until mid-February and again on long weekends during Summer, Easter and School Holidays. Quite simply, don’t turn up to Bay of Fires on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Day or any period from around 15 December until 01 February and expect to find a campsite – you will leave very disappointed and potentially be left with a very long drive on dark, gravel roads trying to find alternative accommodation.
