Richardsons Beach Campground - Freycinet National Park

National Park - Tasmania


Camping is extremely popular over the summer months and at Easter. Due to the high demand for campsites, a ballot system operates from the 18th December until the 10th February and for Easter each year. The ballot is drawn early August with successful applicants being notified by mail. Payment in full is required by mid September.

To protect the environment, camping is limited to the barriered areas on allocated sites. In the fragile sand dune area, camping is restricted to tents only, with one car per site. No caravans, campervans, camper trailers or minibuses are permitted in the sand dune area. Excess cars (other than the one allowed per site) must be parked in the overflow carparks located amongst the dune sites or in the carpark at Ranger Creek. Please note that we do not have laundry or hot shower facilities.  Only the main campsite at Richardsons Beach has powered sites. Outside of the main summer/Easter period, no bookings are taken and campers must check in at the visitor centre first. Booking and other details are found on the display board outside the visitor centre.

Great spot, powered sites, water, there are coin operated hot showers. Great views of the bay. About 3 - 3.5 kilometres to Wineglass car park then approx. 45 minute walk to the look out.

Sites 1 to 18, hardened camping sites. These provide small (maximum 18ft) caravans and campervans a space with power, potable water, grey water disposal and an amenities block with coin-operated hot water showers. Some sites are large enough for our sprinter. Recommend sites 13, 14, 15, 17, 18 for Motorhomes

Bookings only. Hot showers. $16 pn per site.

I Recommend this campground, there are eighteen sites suitable for most Motorhomes ( the recommended 11 metres ) powered sites for $16 dollars is hard to beat. Very close to Coles Bay ( three minute walk thru the campground ) and the walks in Freycinet National park.

Great spot to stay. Level and quiet and cheap.
