If you are planning to hire a campervan or motorhome in Australia, you need to be aware of the campsites that you can stay in during your travels. You cannot simply pull up anywhere in Australia and rest for the night. You may think that a car park in the shopping centre or pulling into the park by the beach will be ok. If you aren’t careful, you will get booked by the local police and you may be in for a hefty fine.
Alternatively, if you are travelling out in the countryside, you may find that what you think is a vacant piece of land is one that actually belongs to a farmer. And if waking up to an angry farmer isn’t a planned part of your travel experience, then it isn’t worth chancing.
Instead, make a plan with free camping sites or even affordable camping sites during your stay.
Here are a few links to sites that detail where you can actually stay for free during your campervan or motorhome travels.
