NUBEENA, the main town on the Tasman Peninsula, is an RV Friendly Town registered with the CMCA.

Go to: https://www.cmca.net.au/services/rv-friendly/rv-friendly-towns/2486-nubeena

General information:

There are many formal places for caravans and motor homes to park – some free and a full range of fee-paying options (see below). However there are also any number of unofficial places to stay if you keep your eyes open. Usually the rangers and council staff are long gone by 5pm so it is unlikely that you will be disturbed if you are discreet and FULLY SELF CONTAINED!

Leave no trace, take only photos and leave only foot-prints.
