Four Reasons Why Camping is Good for You

< Inspiration / Category: Health and Wellbeing / Tags:

Ever thought that camping might just be the key to your happiness and a life with no regret? Here are 4 reasons to prove why camping is good for you.

1. Camping is good for your wellbeing, both mental and physical

We often hear the phrase “happy campers” in our everyday conversations, but are campers really that happy? Well, the stats are in and it looks like this saying is used with good reason. Campers are happier than non-campers!

In fact, Australians who go camping are more satisfied, happy, optimistic, and energised than those who do not go camping.

They are also less stressed, frustrated, bored and lonely. What’s more, is that campers say that camping makes them more productive, more grounded, more in touch with nature, healthier and gives them time to gather their thoughts.

2. There’s freedom in an abundance of choice

Road Trip in a Motorhome or Van

Ever thought it would be nice to embrace van life for a little while? Motorhome rental companies in Australia have been attracting people from all over the world to undertake the great Australian Road Trip in a motorhome, and now is the time for you to give it a try. If all those Instagram pages with millions of photos inspiring people’s bucket lists isn’t enough to get you off the couch, we don’t know what is. A road trip in a motorhome is a must. With a friend, a partner or group of friends, the journey itself is half the fun!

Tent Camping

Get back to basics! It’s so easy to throw a tent in the back of your vehicle and head off for a weekend of adventure.


If back to basics isn’t your cup of tea, then there are some pretty flash glamping setups that might be more your style. A weekend away on a food and wine trail while enjoying luxury in a glamping tent is sure to reset your balance and provide memories to last a lifetime. Camping is good for you and it doesn’t have to be uncomfortable!

3. You’re giving back to other Aussies who have been doing it tough lately

Craving that country-style vanilla slice? Just give in. They’re always worth it. If you need a justification – here it is:  Many regional communities rely heavily on the tourism dollar, and with the impacts of COVID travel restrictions coupled by the bushfires over summer there is a lot of hurting happening. Plus, taking a trip and spending a bit of that hard earned is really a rather enjoyable way to support our fellow Aussies.

4. You deserve to have fun

The past few months have been really tough, everyone has had different troubles and experienced stresses, setbacks and disappointment unique to their own situation.  If you don’t have much leave left, try get out earlier on a Friday and go over a weekend. If you’re watching your pennies, there are options for all kinds of budgets!  Whatever your circumstances, you deserve to have fun and what better way to explore and rejuvenate than in the great outdoors.

Get Happy

If recent events have taught us anything, it is that Australians are some of the luckiest people on the planet! Through the ups and downs, it has been a good time to think about how we may have taken our friendships, freedoms and even the breathtaking wonder of this country for granted.
