Cape Raoul Escape

2 sites · Lodging, RVs40 acres · Stormlea, TAS
Near the entrance to Cape Raoul NP and Shipstern Bluff, this is 40 private and picturesque acres of farmland with two sites. The first is suitable for self-sufficient stays if you have a small campervan or camping. Not suitable for caravans or bigger motorhomes due the steep narrow driveway. There is power available on the switchboard approx 20m from the most level part of the pad next to the uninhabited tiny home. I suggest cautiously reversing down the approx 50 driveway to take advantage of the stunning view. The area near the water tank is the most level. The second site is a beautiful Self Contained Tiny Home. See the stunning Sea Cliffs of Cape Raoul which is part of the world famous Three Capes Walk and it's also close to Port Arthur, The Remarkable Cave and McHenry's Distillery. A beautiful place to stay for a night while you explore this beautiful area. NOTE, while the view is amazing this is a very hilly block and dangerous if you're not comfortable reversing your van.

The best camping near Tasman National Park guide

Overview

About

Tasman National Park is a treasure trove of natural splendour, offering an array of activities for the adventurous at heart. From the awe-inspiring heights of Australia's tallest sea cliffs to the serene beauty of Fortescue Bay's white sands, the park beckons outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you're keen on coastal walks, kayaking amid the waves, or marvelling at the local wildlife, there's something here for every nature lover. And for those who wish to linger longer, the park's campgrounds provide a perfect base to explore and unwind under the stars.

Notable campgrounds

  • Fortescue Bay Camping: Nestled among tall blue gums and stringybarks, this campground offers a golden beach and a plethora of peninsula activities.
  • Bivouac Bay Camping: A peaceful retreat after exploring the coastal bushwalks, Bivouac Bay is an idyllic spot to rest and rejuvenate.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early to secure your spot, as campgrounds in Tasman National Park are highly sought after, especially during peak seasons.
  • Consider visiting during off-peak times for a better chance at snagging a reservation and a more tranquil experience.
  • Keep an eye on cancellation policies and be ready to book if a spot opens up last minute.
  • Explore nearby camping options to ensure you have a backup plan in case your preferred campground is fully booked.

When to go

The best time to visit Tasman National Park is during the warmer months, from November to April, when the weather is ideal for outdoor activities. However, be mindful of the fire ban season, which typically starts in October, as this can affect camping and certain activities. Winter can be cold and wet, making some tracks less accessible and outdoor activities less enjoyable.

Know before you go

  • Always check for alerts on campfire restrictions or area closures before planning your trip to Tasman National Park.
  • Ensure you have a valid parks pass, which is required for entry into the park.
  • Be prepared for changing weather conditions and pack accordingly for safety and comfort.
  • Accessible facilities are available at certain attractions, but assistance may be required for some paths and lookouts.
  • Respect the park's rich Aboriginal heritage and natural environment by following the Leave No Trace principles.
