Campgrounds are just one of the options where travelers roadtripping Australia can stay to enable them to explore a town or region or to just break up their journey. There are so many low cost camping grounds around the country to choose from.

Different Types of Campgrounds

Campgrounds can be made up of a number of different ways. They can be formal camping grounds provided by local Councils or they can be Station Stays, RV Parks or owners properties around the country providing space on their land to stay overnight. Also quite a number of Showgrounds utilize their space outside of show times as a camping area.

How much does it cost to stay in Campgrounds?

Usually they come with a small fee. Council Run Camping grounds, Showgrounds and Station Stays are usually around $20-30 a night for 2 people and have basic facilities. RV Parks and properties are often $10-15 a night for 2 people.

Campgrounds are great mid-ranged options for all travelers.

There are literally hundreds of camping ground areas available around Australia and we have stayed in all forms of camping areas, Council Campgrounds, Showgrounds, Station Stays, RV Parks and campgrounds on private properties.
