About

​There are three serviced campgrounds with toilet facilities in the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area. Manuka and Peppermint both have water on site and are located close to the Parks and Wildlife Visitor Centre​​ on Arthur River Road. ​ Prickly Wattle can be found approximately 1 kilometre south of Arthur River, on Temma Road. All local water should be boiled for 3 minutes or treated before drinking. ​

There are a number of un-serviced sites along the coast with access to limited fresh water. Visitors are advised ​to bring sufficient water with them.  Use existing sites and leave the campground as you found it; camping outside of designated areas may impact on highly sensitive natural and Aboriginal Cultural Heritage sites.

​The Peppermint and Manuka Campgrounds have access friendly, flushable toilet facilities. Take care on grassy areas. ​
