Hamilton Campground was only 30 minutes fromour camp at New Norfolk so we didn’t have to drive far. The camp at Hamilton is 80km north west of Hobart.
This is a largish grass area by a the river Clyde. When we arrived I didn’t think we would fit in as there were around six or so other vans and not much room to park parallel as others were. Thankfully people were starting to leave and so we parked next to the river. Our spot by the river was a bit hilly but as we have a compressor fridge being super flat is not an issue, we were flat enough.
At the camp are a couple of stone tables and benches as well as a couple of bins and fresh water points.
will also find the dump point here, a large playground , park area
that’s right all in one except the doors that separate them. At the
top of the camp you will see the inn as well as the councils office.
started at the cafe when we first arrived so we could get some
change. After breakfast we noticed it was also the post office so got
some change for the camp. That evening we had a drink at the pub and
got chatting to the barman about the history of the place. If you get
the chance do ask!
Inn has lots of quirky, old, cool pieces of antiques and memorabilia
to look at as you sit in the window seat.
The next day we had an ice cream from the cafe again as it was 33c, I wasn’t expecting that in Tasmania. As we left with the van we bought a last take away coffee for the journey. This is a great little camp to relax by the water for a few days with a pub and cafe a few steps away.
