Waratah Camping Ground

Private Campground - Tasmania


Waratah Camping Ground offers caravan and campsite facilities at Waratah on Tasmania’s west coast. Waratah is a small tin mining town situated halfway between Burnie and Queenstown.

The campground is situated beside a small lake behind the Council Office and has 30 campsites and 10 powered sites, electric barbeques, amenities block and laundry facilities.

Bring your caravan or tent to the centre of an old mining town surrounded by wilderness - forest, mountains, lakes and rivers. The campground is a short walk to Lake Waratah and the famous Waratah Waterfall, once used as a source of power in the States second hydro-electric scheme. Where else would you find a waterfall in the middle of town? Enjoy the floodlights at night! The energetic will enjoy a one hour walk to the Old Power House and a game of golf.

The park is convenient to shops, hotel, and the museum. Waratah is close to trout lakes, bushwalking tracks, waterfalls, gold panning, mine tours, the Pieman River cruises, and Cradle Mountain is about a 50 minutes’ drive so Waratah makes an ideal base to explore the west coast.

A deposit of AUD10 is required for the key.There is a cost for non-campers who want to access washing machines and showers.

There is grassed slope and a gravel flat section further on towards the camp kitchen, toilets and showers. After hours, go to the roadhouse/shop/light meals to pay and key with a $10 deposit. It is only 200 m from the camp. Power and water surround the gravel area. There is a washing machine and dryer. No coins needed, just the same key. Thanks council.

The campground at Waratah is very comfortable and now has 19 powered sites. Also the cost covers the use of washing machine and dryer which is very cost effective for the traveller.
