This website started off in the early nineties as markers and scribblings on a giant map of Australia on my games
room wall of all the best places in Australia to go and camp, fish and four wheel drive. After many years of
practical research as well as reading four wheel drive magazines and watching every camping, fishing and four
wheel driving TV show (it’s been a harrowing and arduous task); I recently realised that come the time my wife
and I can leave the kids behind and head off on a trip longer than a school holiday break; I’m either going to
need a bloody big plastic sleeve to put the map in, or I’m going to have to drag myself kicking and screaming
into the 21st century………
G’day and welcome to The Campers Atlas!
This is for all the like-minded people out there who have a desire to embrace the unknown, who live to see the
sunrise and set, who can break the shackles of television, borders, limits and fear. For people who aren’t
resistant to change, who’s very existence yearns to leave an overcrowded population behind and go on a
journey where civilisation ends and nature begins; to find their own secluded piece of paradise.
To those that feel alive and free when driving down an unknown track to a secret fishing hole and catching
your own dinner, who don’t mind getting sand on your feet, or campfire smoke in your hair, or even the odd
mozzie bite. To those who can handle fires, floods, cyclones, flies, dust, heat, cold and week-long winds; I salute
you, for you are a camper and this website is for you!
Please feel free to check out all the campgrounds to plan your next trip. You can use the filters to help you
choose the right campground, and see photos and videos of each campground along with more detailed
information. Though I haven’t been to every campground to video each one yet, I have done many in Western
Australia and will continue until such time as I can do it full time and spend the rest of my life travelling the rest
of Australia seeing every one! It might take a while so bear with me…...
If you know of any other campgrounds not listed, require any changes, or have any photos or videos of any
campground, you can simply add them to the website (with admin approval). Please bear in mind this only a
map for shire run, national parks, state forests, private properties and free campgrounds, not caravan parks. I
have added some 24hr rest stops but only if they in a location with a nice feature or outlook.
If you just want to contact me, you can either e-mail me at thecampersatlas@Gmail.com or through the Forum
which is a great place to chat and pick up some great tips and tricks off other like minded campers.
If you like the layout of this website you can thank Frank Kornaat, my IT guy (another passionate 4wder and
camper) for doing such a great job building this website. Without him we’d all still be wandering aimlessly
around the bush looking for somewhere to camp.
All the campgrounds are free or low cost, suited to all types of camping from on road and off road caravans, to
camper trailers and tents; and some are even accessed by boat only. With a “Caravan Park map” to follow in
the future for those not set up for self- sufficient camping , and a “Tracks n Treks map” for those keen to do the
big, tough once in a life time tracks that go through some of the harshest and yet most beautiful places in
Australia. There’ll even be a “Glamping map” for that special occasion get away; as well as informative articles
on Fishing, Camping and Four Wheel Driving, DIY Maintenance and Repairs, Camp Oven Cooking, Bush Tucker,
Poisonous Bities, Must See Spots, How To Videos, Chemical Dump Points, Fire Wood Collection Points, and
much, much more. So jump on board and help build The Campers Atlas from something small into something
