Camping areas can be found throughout Australian country regions. Camping can be a very inexpensive form of accommodation, sometimes even free, though you do need to provide your own camping gear.
There are many bush campgrounds available. These are often free though they have little or no amenities, generally toilet and/or barbecue facilities at the most.
Campgrounds situated in national parks often incur a charge, with a ranger visiting daily to collect the fee. These generally do provide toilet and barbecue facilities, and some may also have showers, though usually only with cold water.
Camping is also available in caravan parks. Most parks have a grassed area set aside for campers to pitch their tents. If electricity is required, then powered sites are also available. Many caravan parks have a camp kitchen area which includes cooking facilities (usually a barbecue though some also have a microwave), a sink and, sometimes, a refrigerator.
Prices for an unpowered site in a caravan park can range from around $10 to $25 per night for two people, however, some holiday parks charge up to $50 per night.
