Camping in New South Wales
New South Wales is covered in campgrounds with enough to keep most people busy for a lifetime of camping. The most popular campgrounds in NSW are typically along the coast, all of the way from Merimbula to Byron Bay. The people of NSW love their camping and the entire place is loaded with incredible natural sites, so there are decent campgrounds right across the state.
Hundreds of campgrounds can be found along the NSW coast, with loads of free camps in state parks, great affordable ones in national parks and plenty of private caravan parks. Rough it or stay in some of the best coast side campgrounds and caravan parks in the country, otherwise mix between both as there are always heaps of places to choose from along this part of the state.
The place is well equiped for alpine camping with mountain ranges spread throughout NSW. In the central southern part of the state are the Snowy Mountains in the Australian Alps, home to the highest mountain in Australia, Mount Kosciuszko, with more ranges running slightly inland along most of the coastline and dotted right throughout the rest of NSW, such as the Blue Mountains to the west of Sydney.
