    Default Return from Car Camping

    Hello everyone,

    I and my partner returned from car camping with two dogs last night. we were very happy with our dogs’ behaviours despite of long driving, unfamiliar surroundings and varying weather conditions in outback NSW. Every place you go, it is bright green at the moment, and all rivers, lakes, creeks and dams are full of water and really beautiful. I think car camping with dogs are certainly challenging but very enjoyable (we even decide on camping at least once per month from next month). I do hope weather is like this (forever) especially for those people in central NSW.
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    Thanks it was great after I 50%overcame Kangaroo and or other animals' poops!!!!
    When we returned to Sydney, we had a quick dinner spending almost $70.00, then the dinner did not taste as good as dinner of Spam, tomato, cheese, bread with a budget local wine around the fire while camping.

    So CJay, is there any place you can camp with dogs in Tasmania? I understand that you can not camp at National Parks (We camped mainly nature reserves and state forests-that is why i found some/much cattle poops-sorry I am neurotic about poops)
    One day I will do overland trekking in Tasmania!!!

    There are heaps of places in tassie for camping with dogs, both the north west and north east corners are state forest and have very little restrictions on them. All bar about 5 beaches over that area are dog and 4wd friendly.

    If you like to rough it the Tarkine on the north west in a must. I got lucky and got paid to 4wd for 4 weeks up there, there is a few camping spots around there, including lookouts, beaches and waterfalls.

    The north east is very much the same, due to all this land being managed by forestry tasmania (lets not get into a forestry debate) there have been picnic grounds, camping spots and heaps of forest walks and being state forest there are little to no restrictions when it comes to vehicals and dogs.

    You're right in saying that camping in national parks is out but don't let that stop you, if there is a national park then you can nearly bet you're just down the road from a camp ground or state forest.

    Give yourself a few weeks to look around down here, you'll need it and won't regret it. Just drop me a line if you need any info on what to see and where to go.

    Just a warning though, you'll find that the local wildlife down here is rather friendly so don't worry about their poo, worry about them stealing your bed.

    Thanks CJay,

    I and oh were travelling Tassie about 13 years ago for 2 weeks in July and we loved there despite of weather. (we were living in Canberra at that time so weather was not that much different) We have talked about going there again with or without dogs. I will definitely give you warning!!!

    July is the middle of winter, march, april, november are better times, the weather is warmer, just be careful where you step.
