The ultimate guide for the budget & freedom traveller.
After the success of six editions, Camps Australia Wide has produced their seventh edition, with more sites, informative symbols and in full colour. This edition is A4 in size, has 440 pages and has been revised and updated with over 3,900 sites. (If you want the larger version with pictures of the camps sites, please click here for Camps Snaps 7)
Camps Australia Wide 7 includes Hema Maps, with the campsites positioned in their approximate locations on the maps.
This book is not just a guide to camping spots for certain areas, but encompasses the whole of Australia, showing rest areas, free camps, station stays, low-cost caravan parks, national parks, state forests, state parks and reserves.
Facilities at each site are depicted by symbols, including not only the standard ones, but those applicable to motorhomes, such as big rigs, maximum stay allowed, dump points, pets allowed, fees applicable.
Descriptive icons include: close to road; pleasant outlook or vista; mobile phone coverage; dry weather access. All sites have GPS co-ordinates, and site access details have been expanded.
Included in this edition is a Public Dump Point list of over 400 dump point locations with addresses and GPS co-ordinates, as well as symbols to show suitability for cassettes, holding tanks (and whether a fee is applicable), together with access suitability for big rigs.
The guide represents great value for money, especially when the cost of the book can be recouped after only a few nights camping out.
Being able to plan a trip with stopovers that are free or low cost, knowing if a pet is welcome and seeing at a glance what facilities are available, has proven to be a hit with travellers across Australia.
It is easy to see why it is now clearly regarded as the travellers bible .
All in all, an easy to use and comprehensive guide to rest areas and camp spots throughout Australia, a definite must have for all travellers.
