We all like the idea of getting back to nature and experiencing the wonders Australia has on offer. With thousands of potential locations, it seems near impossible to choose a destination worthy of spending your Easter long weekend. To help narrow it down, we’ve put together our top five campsite picks to spend the Easter break, so you have more time to plan the fun stuff!
1. Putty Beach Campground, Killcare Heights, New South Wales
Situated in the Bouddi National Park, the Putty Beach campground is the largest in the area and offers great facilities for a family to enjoy together. Take a swim in the Tasman Sea, then enjoy a BBQ picnic while soaking up the last of summer warmth before winter arrives. A well-equipped campsite, Putty Beach has drinking water readily available, showers and toilets while still remaining cost effective. Just remember to bring a power source if you’d like the option to charge your mobile phone from time to time.
2. Woody Head Campground, Bundjalung National Park, Iluka, New South Wales
When searching for a great escape, look no further than Woody Head Campgrounds, just a one hour drive from Byron Bay. Pitch your tent and stroll across the beach to start enjoying your well-deserved weekend away. Relish in the beautiful rock formations and protected beach zones that form the perfect snorkelling location. From rainforest to beach, this is one of the few campsites to offer such outdoor variety to explore, so be sure to book your campsite ahead of time to avoid missing out!
