Richardsons Beach Campground - Freycinet National Park TAS

Some sites are available all year and some are only available over summer and Easter. Only the main campsite at Richardsons Beach has powered sites.
Campfires are restricted to designated fireboxes, which are shared amongst a number of sites.
In addition to camping fees, campers are required to have a valid Tasmanian National Parks Pass.
Shops and other facilities are located at Coles Bay, a ten minute walk away.
Bushwalks to Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula commence from the car park four kilometres away.
Availability of drinking water can vary throughout the year, check this prior to your arrival.
The Freycinet Visitors Centre is within the entrance to the Park, and provides information on the natural and cultural heritage of this region through creative displays. The centre is open daily from 0800 to 1700 and staff will assist you with your enquiries. Due to the high demand for campsites, a ballot system operates from the 18th December until the 10th February and for Easter each year and is decided by a ballot system drawn early August. Applications should be received by Freycinet National Park by the 31st of July and must be made by letter/fax/email.
Entries are now closed into the 2010/2011 Camping Ballot. Successful applicants will be notified by mail in September. Ballot entry forms for the 2011/2012 camping season will be available later this year.
Please contact the Visitor Reception Office on the above email to make bookings for other times of the year.
