This list of camping festivals was compiled by Ken Dousha of South East Queensland, who is building a great camping group online over at: We highly recommend you check it out!

Festivals have been a favourite for Aussies. What a great way to bond with their family and friends or just to escape the hustle and bustle of life! Hundreds of festivals get held each year full of music, dancing, wine and food, art, culture, camping and more.

It is a well embraced and practiced culture all over the world, but here in Australia, we take our festivals pretty seriously.

Now to all festival lovers out there, we have great news! This year there is going to be a huge number of camping festivals and expos to get your motor running and we’re giving you a heads up.
