Free Range Camping, a camping community website based in Eumundi, Queensland, Australia, is proud to announce the launch of their directory featuring free camping Australia on their site. Representatives say the directory is already growing a fast rate, becoming one of the biggest camping directories in the country.
"We're very excited to add the campground directory to Free Range Australia," says Rob Catania, spokesperson for the website. "We live in such a diverse country filled with so many friendly people and gorgeous places for the outdoor traveler to explore. In the future, we hope to be a one-stop-shop for campers, travelers, families, and tourists visiting our awesome country. We're already becoming the fastest growing camping community on the web."
The community-driven directory is free to sign up and free to search. Users can refine their search with over 30 filters such as running water, areas with power, and pet friendly sites. Campers can set up favorites of their best-loved sites and create a custom list for them to remember later.
Over 9000 camping sites all around Australia are listed on the site, with over 1900 free campgrounds in Australia listed. "It's so easy to stick to your budget when you're using our directory," Catania says. "We encourage campers to feel free to edit and add to the directory so they can share their experiences with others."
Catania adds that free camp sites are great for travelers because they are usually provided by local communities. "Even if they might be limited, free campgrounds are great because they are backed by people who really know the area," he says. "Along with the basic amenities for your camping trip, they might also be connected to local Councils, hotels, camping groups, and even pubs. It really encourages you to get out and know the area you're visiting. Maybe you'll even make some new friends along the way."
The directory offers a number of different categories for campers to explore. The Campgrounds section not only includes free campsites, but also privately owned sites, Council-owned areas, and more. Typically these types of sites have a number of facilities and can be used for either short-term or long-term stays depending on the owner of the site. Campers can even find listings on showgrounds during particular events or holidays.
Caravan parks are listed for those who are traveling with a vehicle along with a trailer or caravan. Many of these parks include amenities such as toilet blocks, laundry rooms with washing machines and tumble dryers, power hookups, playgrounds, football pitches, and sometimes an on-site restaurant or pub. Many are located near local towns or natural attractions such as lakes or rivers that offer swimming and fishing for visitors.
For those that are traveling on longer road trips, a number of rest areas are listed in the directory. "Planning a road trip means you have to know where you can stop to stretch your legs, use a restroom, and maybe dispose of some rubbish," Catania states. "Sometimes you may just want to stop somewhere and have a bite to eat while you're on the road, and most rest stops have picnic areas available for people to have a little munch before getting back on the road."
Trips in an RV require a dump points to get rid of sewage, waste, and grey and black water from appliances and plumbing inside the vehicle. Campers who are planning an RV trip can search for dump points that are both free and paid throughout Australia. GPS coordinates are listed for each site so that travelers can plan ahead for dumping during their trip.
"We even have a category for house sitting and helping people out," Catania says. "A lot of homeowners and farm owners will let you stay at their property for free in exchange for taking care of their house or property. While the owners have peace of mind knowing that your property will be looked after, the house sitters will be able to stay in a lovely home for free. We even have farmers that have listed space on their properties for people to stay for free in exchange for helping out with some of the duties on the farm."
The directory also features a listing of businesses that are useful for campers and travelers traveling to particular areas. Many of the businesses offer special offers for members of the site. Business owners can log in at any time and update information for the community.
