Dear All

We are based in Melbourne and are looking for the best guide to local and interstate camping. A book which specifically provides sites suitable for a camper trailer (Jayco Outback Swan).

Does anyone know of the best publication that may be able to suggest spots / trips etc....

We are not the van park type and are looking for a guide to a bit more out of the way / National / State Park type camping.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Ben

I have the Camps 4 Snaps version and find it worth it's weight in GOLD

Hi Ben

Being a parochial Sandgroper, I'll put a plug in for this vast state of WA.
Jan Holland produced two brilliant guides complete with mud maps and notes:
'A Guide to Priceless Campsites & Rest Areas' one for the North of Wa (Kalbarri and above) and another for the Southern areas (Kalbarri and below).
You can consult these guides for 400 tracks in total and have confidence you will find a campsite with detailed description of area thrown in.
I picked mine up in Ranger stores but available many outlets. Can provide author email if required.

I purchased the trio of Jan Holland books (SW of WA, NW of WA and NT) from the ExplorOz Bookshop Phil. They are so good.

bgk, Jan Holland books are far more comprehensive and detailed that Camps Australia Wide which i also travel with. Unfortunately they are for WA and NT only. They have so much useful tourism information, that they formed the base for our trip planing through WA and NT over the past two years. We really missed her when we got to Qld.
