1). Wikicamps Australia
Wikicamps Australia is an app that can help you locate important destinations such as roadside rest areas, suitable campsites, and even caravan parks. The app even helps you identify if these destinations have wifi or not!
All the content on the app is user-generated, which includes a forum that brings together a community of campers that have experienced similar situations as you. Though the content may not be 100% accurate, the app is still known to be relatively effective and helpful for all your destination searching needs.
You can find the Wikicamps Australia app on the Apple and Google stores.

3). Willy Weather
Anticipating the weather is an important part of every camping trip. With this app, you’re not only able to check on what the weather will be like, including other details such as temperature, UV rays, moon cycles, sunrise or sunset times, tide schedules, and even wind strength.
This is especially helpful for campers that are trying to avoid the harsh heat especially in the summer months, or for photographers that are looking to capture the perfect nature picture.
Willy Weather is available on both the Apple and Google stores.

When going on a camping trip, it is essential that you bring every necessity possible. With the Camping Checklist app, you won’t have to experience leaving something behind anymore!
The app is completely customisable, allowing you to stay organised and on track with everything that you require for your camping trip. You can even share your camping list with your fellow travel buddies to avoid packing more than one piece of the same item!
This app is only available on the Google store.
Of course, every nature spot in Australia has a walking trail! With AllTrails, you can find over 60,000 walking and even biking trails not only in Australia but around the world.

GoSky Watch is the perfect app for campers who love to appreciate nature to its fullest. You can use this app to spend the night stargazing, learning more about planets, constellations, and more!
