Camps Australia Wide 6
Finding information about cheap/free camping sites has been a bit hit-and-miss. There just doesn’t seem to be one place that has it all. I was trawling through Cycling Dutch Girl’s blog the other day, and she mentioned this wonderful publication:
It is billed as “the ultimate guide for the budget-conscious traveller”. It contains maps, photos, GPS coordinates, and descriptions of the camp sites. Importantly, for a camp site to make it into this book, it must be under $22 a night. This includes free camping spots. My little eyes lit up when I saw this.
I discovered that the RACQ sells this book. Once again, an automobile association comes in handy for this cyclist. In fact, I’ve had more use from the RACQ in a cycling context than I have in a motoring context. Bonus: As an RACQ member, it’s cheaper for me to buy it from them than from the authors directly! So the order has been placed, and hopefully it will be with me in a couple of days. This will help us start planning our local/short tours.
