While the best part about camping is escaping city life and technology, there are plenty of great apps these days that can make your trip just a little more enjoyable.
WikiCamps Australia provides campers with user generated content about camp sites, caravan parks, backpacker hostels, day stops, points of interest and information centres. It’s constantly being updated with new information, including ratings, comments, photos, and prices. You can chat on the forum with other campers, get directions to your destination, or use the handy built-in camping checklist.
Hema Explorer is an on and offline GPS navigation app for touring, four-wheel driving and camping. You can plan your trip using the Hema maps which give you online access to Australia-wide street, terrain and satellite maps. Record your trips as you go with the geo-tagging photo option or plan a stop at one of the 40,000 interactive point of interest. Hema Explorer also lets you share with friends on Facebook and Twitter.
