Caravan camping

We are looking for information on caravan camping options in the Darwin Mandorah area, including any free camping options that might be available within reasonable reach. We expect to be there around June July. 2014

purchase a "camps" book and they give all options Australia wide on cheap camping spots and what facilities are available. http://www.campsaustraliawide.com

There aren't any free camping areas in Darwin itself - just the usual caravan parks. You can camp at Litchfield National Park and I believe that's still free. There isn't free camping at Mandorah unless you have a 4wd that you can go down some of the bush tracks to the beach. There is a lot of places you can camp in the surrounding area, but most are only accessible by 4wd. You can get to Gunn Point in a 2wd but I'm not sure how you'd go with a caravan.

Good luck

Hi Barry

I, too, am planning a camping tour to Darwin and Kakkadu etc for June/July next year.

Two books that seem very useful for me are:

1. Explore Australia budget Camps and stops [ has photos of every site and comments about shade etc as well] and

2. Camps Australia Wide 4

Some of the sites mentioned are free.

I have found some of the places mentioned through my friend google so that's a big help in planning the travel days.

if you have any tips that will help me, please do share!

Hi Barry,

Could you please share the name of the camping option in the Darwin Mandorah area as you must have visited there now. Share your experience as well, as we are planning to have a caravan holiday trip there in next month.

"You can camp at Litchfield National Park and I believe that's still free." We were at Litchfield NP 3 years ago. It wasn't free. While there wasn't anybody there collecting money, you had to leave it in an envelope and put it in a box provided on site. I believe that a ranger checked who paid and who didn't.
