Wanna pitch your tent on the lush grass of a winery? Or how about a visit to a riverside glamping resort? What about a venue so remote, the only way to get there is by helicopter? You can have all this, and more, with a new excellent online service being billing as the “Airbnb for campsites”.
Welcome to the first – and biggest! – land-sharing website in Australia, Youcamp.
At its core, Youcamp is a website that connects holidaymakers with private landowners. Whether you want to camp, kayak, caravan, mountain climb or catch a fish, these guys will be able to connect you with the accommodation that suits you best.
According to Youcamp’s mission statement, it’s “committed to opening up unique frontiers of the Australian outdoors, providing people with access to the best and most exciting, interesting places to stay.” Each as refreshing and decidedly true blue as the last.
Our pick? Dirk Hartog Island in Western Australia, which just so happens to be the country’s westernmost point and home to a very cosy looking camp spot on the beach. Plus it’s only $25 a night!
