Alice Springs Camping Ground @ National Road Transport Museum
Alice Springs camping ground at the National Road Transport Museum is a surprisingly good hidden gem. It’s in a securely fenced area with full amenities and all for a great price. We highly recommend it if you’re looking for camping in Alice Springs.
Alice Springs Camping Ground Amenities
We spent three nights here for the princely sum of only $15 per night. Showers and flushing toilets as well as a washing machine are all provided for this small fee. The amenities are old and a bit run down however they are clean and tidy and do the job well.
Potable water is available to fill your tanks at a central filling point. Powered sites are also available for an extra $10 per night. We opted for unpowered as we just about always do as the unpowered sites are away from the vast majority of other campers who opted for power. The sites are all quite generous in size and they have a lot of them. Most of the powered sites were taken while we were there but there were plenty of unpowered sites available. Fires are allowed in contained fire pits so long as they are up off the ground.
The location is nice and close to central Alice Springs. Alice Springs is only a ten minute drive from the National Road Transport Museum campground.
