Just a quick one, those of you who have bought Camps Aust 4.
Is it worth it? I have the 3rd version is the new one that much different?

Proberly cannot help you much as i never had the Camps 3 book, I just figure the camps 4 covers more places and deleted a few from the Camps 3.

I guess I would still use the Camps 3 book and just check before you go to any remote location if where you are going you still can :) like ask on here :) :)

You most likely can get the same info on line for free anyway. I seem to remember this came up several months ago and a couple of sites were put forward then. I may even have the sites if I go looking :)

How very true Dave.

The latest update shows quite a few sites have been closed.

Odd you should mention the book. It was reviewed by our Sunday Times paper today. By all accounts a good buy and a number of new camp sites identified.

Hi Booman

When it came out, i looked up their website and found updates, many of which Camps 3 listed campsites have become day areas only. We still have Camps 3, but will be aware of those where you can no longer overnight. Some free spots now have a fee.

Greetings,

Bought the book earlier this year - thought it was good value - after a few months had a real good look at it and realised several pages missing (all maps of Tasmania) - contacted Phillip Fennell the publisher via email and advised him - he sent me a new copy within a week free of charge.

Good value and good service from the publisher.
