Waratah Caravan and Camping Ground offer affordable powered and unpowered sites overlooking the picturesque trout-filled Waratah Lake. Waratah is a picture-postcard historic mining town situated at the eastern gateway to the magnificent Tarkine Wilderness. Just a 45-minute drive south of Burnie, Waratah is approximately halfway between the North West Coast and the Wild West Coast of Tasmania. Only a 40-minute drive to the iconic Cradle Mountain, Waratah offers an affordable base to explore the natural beauty of this spectacular part of Tasmania.
The Caravan Park is within walking distance to all the main town attractions, including the famous Waratah Waterfall, once used as a source of power in the state's second hydroelectric scheme. The energetic will enjoy the choice of accessible walks in and around the town, including the stunning Philosopher Falls Track. There is a 9-hole golf course, and the keen angler can fish for trout in the well-stocked lake.
All camping ground enquiries should go to the Waratah Post Office during normal business hours. There is no manager on site after hours. Please call ahead to ensure your accommodation requirements can be met as we do not book specific sites in advance - first come basis for site selection.
