NOTE: We had a message from Central Coast Council, Tasmania, stating that this camp is closed for site rehabilitation. Depending on the weather, it will reopen prior to summer 2023.
Sulphur Creek camp is located about 5 minutes from Penguin on the north west coast. It was also a short 20 minute drive from our last free camp at Cooee Point.
There’s defiantly no need to drive far in Tasmania to get to a great free camp. In fact we thought we had missed this camp at first as we had driven passed a camp virtually the same location. That one was actually called Hall Point Sulphur Creek and ours was Midway Point Sulphur Creek. Both share the same beach! Oh and Preservation Bay camp is less than 5 minutes away.
Sulphur Creek Campground
Like the other two camps nearby, Sulphur Creek overlooks the ocean. It’s a large grassed area that many vans can park on. Large vans will fit to but it would be hard to turn around if it was full as it’s a dead end.
If you’re heading from west to east you can see from the road if there is room. Between the camp and the water is a train line. Only a couple of trains passed when we stayed and none at night so no worries there.
You’re At The Beach
At the end of the Sulphur Creek Campground is a lovely beach and some rocks that locals were fishing from. There are no amenities here so you do have to be self-contained. The nearest dump point is in Penguin or at Cooee point free camp which also has drinking water.
