Duckbill Banks Camping

The 35-acre property offers views of Quamby Bluff, and various options to explore and relax. Find yourself a nice quiet spot, where you can enjoy peace and quiet. Although we take several bookings at once, you are guaranteed a secluded nook, there is plenty of space. There is a woodfired hot tub beside the creek, which all campers have access to. Imagine star gazing from the hot tub of an evening, or enjoying a morning soak whilst keeping your eyes peeled for the resident platypus in their natural habitat! Firewood is provided for the hot tub, as well as your individual campfires. The hot Tub is not for wild parties, but to relax and view the native wild life, quietly watch the platypus in their natural environment. Please note, we accept one camper trailer/caravan per booking. If you are traveling in a group with multiple caravans, you will need to book multiple sites - but will still be able to camp together.

Rivers Edge

1 site · RV, Tent24 acres · Gunns Plains, TAS
Rivers Edge is 24 acres of forest on the banks of the Leven River in Gunns Plains, Tasmania. We are in our own little valley surrounded by tall forests. Preston Creek flows all year through our property and meets the large Leven River where your campsite is situated. Perfect for trout fishing, platypus watching, bird watching or catching the sun setting through the trees on the river bend. There are even the endangered black fresh water crayfish. The site is large enough for up to 5-6 caravans for large bookings, and we only take one booking at a time, so its exclusively yours. We are only 20km to the nearest town, Ulverstone which as everything you need. The road is close by the campsite with easy access to find the property. No toilet facilities at the site. Sat TV is good and limited mobile reception. Telstra works best we've found. River access over a rocky, uneven embankment as it's a natural, untouched environment, just how we and the native animals like it. Campfires ONLY PERMITTED when fire restrictions aren't in place. You absolutely must make sure your campfire is fully extinguished before you leave. Please check "My Trips" (in your profile) for directions once confirmed. Look for the 'Rivers Edge' sign on the entrance gate, then you know youve got the right site and not the neigbours property (which is along side mine on the river) Well behaved dogs are welcome but must be kept with you at all times, no roaming dogs as the road is close by and we are a working hobby farm with animals. We love the peace and serenity here so please no unruly behaviour or parties.

The best camping near Narawntapu National Park guide

Overview

About

Hemmed in between the Sorell and Tamar Rivers and the Bass Strait, the Narawntapu National Park is a wild stretch of windswept beaches, coastal lagoons, and heathlands dotted with islands, sand dunes, and inlets. Whether you’re cooling off with a swim at the long sandy beaches, hiking the epic Coastal Travers trail along the shore, or spotting Forester kangaroos, pademelons, and Tasmanian devils, exploring Narawntapu is all about getting back to nature. Bring your boat, your horse (this is one of few NPs with horse trails), and your caravan or campervan, and enjoy some of Tasmania’s best beachside camping.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for caravans: Springlawn Campground has powered sites suitable for caravans, campervans, and camper trailers, plus a blackwater dump point. 
  • Best for equestrian campers: The Horse Yards has unpowered campsites with firepits and horse camping by prior reservation.
  • Best for tent campers: Koybaa has tent-only campsites at the southwestern tip of Bakers Beach.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. The park’s four campgrounds are available on a first-come, first-served basis only. Bookings are only possible for large groups and equestrians. 
  2. You can pay for your campsite using the self-registration system at Springlawn Visitor Center.
  3. Campsites can book up as fast on summer and holiday weekends, so get there early and head straight to the Visitor Center on arrival to secure your spot.

When to go

Summertime brings the crowds to Narawntapu, and the warm sunny months are the best time to hit the beach, especially if you want to swim. For boating, fishing, and wildlife watching, it’s best to come when the water levels are higher, and some of the best bird-watching is in early spring. The national park is open year-round except for Christmas Day, and the campgrounds stay open through winter.

Know before you go

  • Narawntapu National Park is set 40 kilometres east of Devonport, about a 35-minute drive away, and 75 kilometres northwest of Launceston, about a 75-minute drive away. There are two park entrances: Springlawn and Greens Beach.
  • A Parks Pass is required for all Tasmania national parks, and camping fees also apply. You must inform the park at least four days beforehand if bringing horses to Narawntapu.
  • Narawntapu facilities include four campgrounds, restrooms, picnic areas, and the Springlawn Visitor Center, which has a small gift and snack shop, coin-operated showers, and electric barbecues. The closest gas station and grocery store is a 25-minute drive away, so bring everything you need with you. 
  • Beaches are not patrolled, so swimming is at your own risk.
  • There are accessible restrooms, picnic areas, and campsites at Narawntapu National Park. The Visitor Center is also accessible.
