Hipcamp Legacy Awards 2024: Australia Edition

To help you find the best camping in the country, each year we compile data from bookings, reviews, and ratings across more than 500,000 available sites. We use this to identify top-performing properties and crown Hipcamp Award winners.

In 2024, we’re delighted to announce the very first class of Hipcamp Legacy Award winners. All of these properties and the Hosts who run them have been a part of the Hipcamp family for more than five years, and during that time, they have proven to be among the very best, consistently creating magical camping experiences for thousands of campers to embody everything we love about getting outside. These aren’t just some of the best campsites in Australia—they’re among the very best in the world.

We’re so thankful to these long-time Hosts for their dedication to sharing their land, and we couldn’t be more proud of their stellar, years-long track records! Here’s to many more years of nights under the stars. How were winners selected?
