Where to park your campervan in Airlie Beach

Airlie Beach is a popular backpacker destination and many people travel here in campervans, meaning a lot of people need to think about where they should park their vehicles during their time in the Whitsundays! Local laws around overnight campervan parking in Airlie Beach can be confusing, so we've made a list of places where you can park so you will have all of the information you need about where you can park legally in Airlie Beach. This can be especially important for travellers who leave their campervans parked illegally while they go on their Whitsundays boat tour, as their campervans may end up being towed away while they are off enjoying the beauty of the Whitsunday Islands! By ensuring you are legally parked, your campervan will be safe and secure during your Whitsunday travels.

Proserpine Main Street Free 48 hour RV park & Lake Proserpine

The Whitsunday Regional Counil announced the opening of a brand new FREE 48 hour powered campsite right in the main street of Proserpine! Adjacent to St. Catherine's Church, the site will be trialled until further notice. The RV Park boasts 18 RV spots and comes hot on the heels of 72 hour free camping also being launched at Lake Proserpine last month. The RV Park caters for self-contained vehicles, however there has been a dump point and tap installed on site. Council request visitors to obey the site rules as indicated on signs upon entering the park and please allow room for others to access and exit as a courtesy.
