Canberra: Camping

Australia's Bustling Capital

Canberra has a wide range of great spots for a camping holiday in and around the city, with many more ideal locations in the surrounding area of NSW. The closest camping park to the city centre is found on Kunzea St, fantastic for holidaymakers looking to stick close to city comforts and still get an authentic bushland experience. Other local options that offer caravan parking are in Watson, which offers a great and affordable camping holiday. Away from the centre, Cotter Dam is a very shady camp ground and more secluded area - perfect for couples looking for a sheltered camping holiday near to Canberra. Further afield, the rugged hills surrounding Canberra offer a wonderful host of camping opportunities - Pine Hill and Point Hut two excellent sites to the west of the city, which are close to the natural wonders of Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and Namadgi National Park. So whether you wish to stay close to the city or head out into the beautiful mountainous hinterland of ACT, Canberra caters for everything a camping holiday could want, and provides an inexpensive stay close to some of Australia’s finest natural beauty.
