Cooee Point is a great place to camp by the ocean and is conveniently located just outside Burnie.
Cooee Point Camping
Any size rig will fit here and most people park parallel to the water so most get a sea view. It’s a windy location and quite cool with it but well worth stopping at.
If you get here early and don’t get a spot over looking the water, park opposite for a while till someone leaves as they always do. On the flip side don’t arrive to late as it gets busy but most will still find a spot.
Water & Dump Point
Cooee Point Reserve has potable water so you can fill your tanks before you park up or before you leave. This is in a separate area to the dump point which is way down the back of the camp. Add the fact that bins are also here, it makes this free camp so worth stopping at.

Cooee Point campground is in Cooee 😉 of so many of Tassie’s north west coastal towns. Stanley is only 1 hour away, Devonport is 40 minutes and Penguin is around 20 minutes away.
You can even head inland to Cradle Mountain which is what we did. It’s around a 1.5 hours drive.
This is a 48 hour free camp for self-contained vehicles. A permit is required. If you have wickicamps you can easily follow the link to book it. I’ll add the link in the information below so you can see it.
