Are you in need of an amazing, yet cheap, summer weekend getaway? That's probably a silly question... everyone is!

You love camping, your family loves camping -- but your bank account is still recovering from the frivolity of Christmas and New Years.

Instead of missing out on a another camping escape with your family, take a minute to realise that, for just a few hundred dollars, you and your family can have a truly amazing 3-day camping experience. Don't believe us? This is the article for you.

Before we reveal this insight, check out these quick tips for making your camping trip cheaper -- and easier! 


Quick tips for making your family camping trips cheaper and easier:

  • Plan and prepare your meals before hand so you don't have to spend the extra time and money on eating out or raiding the nearest supermarket.
  • Try to camp in National Parks -- they're much cheaper!
  • Hire someone else's RV instead of forking out the cost of buying and maintaining your own.
  • Find a campsite that is close to your house -- you'll save a heap of money on petrol!
  • Use solar power to save the cost of paying for a powered site.
  • Camp with friends and split the cost of food, water, site fees etc.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 




About camping near Newcastle:

Newcastle is a great place to experience a camping holiday. Caravanning is a big thing in this area and you can tell by the sheer number of holiday parks and campgrounds spread all the way from Lake Macquarie up to Nelson Bay. Feeling super adventurous? Have a go at the ever-popular quad biking or sandboarding at Stockton Sand Dunes -- about 30 minutes drive North of the CBD.

There’s no better way to explore the 'Newy' region than by bringing along your very own RV. However, if you don’t own an RV, Camplify is here to help. Our caravan hire and RV sharing community has been designed to connect holidaymakers with local owners of RVs in a secure, friendly environment.

If you choose to hire a caravan, motorhome or camper trailer from a local owner in Newcastle, they may even drop it off somewhere on beautiful Lake Macquarie for you. Less time setting up and settling in means more time to explore the caves, rock pools and bush walking trails around the lake. Closer to Newcastle you’ll find more glorious beaches and a plethora of bustling cafes. If you feel like really becoming one with nature, we'd recommend checking out the waterfalls and rainforest trails in the serene Glenrock State Conservation Area and Lagoon just South of the CBD.

In Tasmania, there are more than 50 caravan and camping sites spanning from the North, South, East & West Coaststo Hobart, Launceston and the Midlands. Many of these sites are located in stunning surrounds and include top notch facilities at very reasonable prices.

Whether you want to go trekking on Cradle Mountain, take a scenic drive by the highland lakes,hike through old world pine forests in the South West wilderness, laze on the beach in the Bay of Fires or indulge your inner foodie with the abundance of fresh local produce in Hobart, Tasmania has got you covered.
