Wildflowers, hiking and whale watching – your guide to spring camping trips!

As the temperatures begin to rise and the frost starts to fade, many of us are coming out of hibernation and planning our upcoming caravan and camping holidays.

It’s no secret that spring is the prime time of year for many tourist destinations, and there is no shortage of events and attractions to choose from. Here are a few of our must-do activities to help you spring into a new season of caravan and camping.

  • Chasing waterfalls:

    Our beautiful country is known for its stunning coastlines and bushland, but don’t forget about our spectacular waterfalls! From Millaa Millaa falls in Queensland, to Russell Falls in Tasmania, Victoria’s Mackenzie Falls or Western Australia’s Horizontal Falls, Australia is home to many awe-inspiring waterfalls, and spring can be the perfect time of year to visit them!

  • Head out for a hike:

    The cold winter weather can deter many of us from enjoying a good hike, and Summer can often be too warm, but spring is the perfect time to hit the trails! Whether you’re up for a multi-day hike like Tasmania’s Overland Track or a shorter trail somewhere like Queensland’s Lamington National Park or the Pinnacles Dessert in Western Australia, there are hikes all around Australia to suit all levels of experience.

  • Whale watching in a scenic coastal town:

    Australia is famous all around the world for our incredible beaches and marine life, and whale watching in a coastal town is definitely a bucket list experience! Hervey Bay in Queensland, Exmouth in Western Australia, and Oyster Bay in Tasmania are some of our favourite options!

  • Check out our native wildflowers in full bloom:

    In spring, parks and bushland alike are transformed by wildflower blooms. Perth and its surrounding towns in WA are particularly well renowned for their wildflowers, with the Margaret River region also being transformed by an array of natural flora. In other states it is worth paying a visit to Cradle Mountain, Girraween National Park and the Snowy Mountains– just to name a few!
