camping julius river tasmania free campground smithton

The Julius River camping area is located on the northern edge of the magnificent Tarkine rainforest wilderness, on the far north-west of Tasmania. The Julius River forest camping area is located some 10 km east of the Kanunnah Bridge and Sumac Lookout on the South Arthur Forest Dr (C218). The Julius River Reserve free camping area has 6 campsites suitable for vehicle based camping (campervans, motorhomes, camper-trailers) etc,. but is not suitable for tent camping. The Julius River campsite is located 600 m past the picnic area in this reserve. Whilst camping Julius River, we recommend you take the interpretive rainforest walk among ferns, bush orchids, mosses and fungi that lead you to a limestone sinkhole. Alternatively, why not head to nearby Lake Chisholm for a walk through old-growth myrtle forest, where you will find an even more spectacular flooded sinkhole. The Julius River Forest Reserve, and Milkshakes Hills Forest Reserve which is located in the same area, are accessible by standard vehicles, and offer facilities including picnic tables and barbecues. There are a range of short walks that are very accessible for walkers of all skill levels and offer an insight into the magnificent rainforest ecosystem that comprises the Savage River National Park.
