www.caravancaravan.com.au is another good site for finding free and low cost campsites.

Great information Michael.  Handy to know when travelling around, could be a great saving in helping being able to travel further.  It’s hard to keep up with everything you need to know when you’re out there doing it.  You just might be having to save a bit to go further along as unexpected bills can arise out of no ware when you least expect it.  We hit a kangaroo and it could have cost us big money in replacement up to $6000 I believe, we got lucky but could have easily been the other way.  And might have had to get home on a wing and a prey.  And it can be long way between stops and towns even to having that unexpected rest when needed. 

 From one who's traveled a few times around Australia now, one of the favorite stops really enjoyed was at Blackall, also the coldest during the wee hours before an August dawn broke.  Had a great night there, great company all around us when pulled in, won’t forget that place in a hurry.

I was told coming back down over in the West side in the mining sector from the top end down, there is a farm there was one of the worst to stay at, even if it was for free, you could even see snake trails near the campsite in the dirt. Um I think they said near Mt Magnet somewhere over there.

 Have got itchy feet once again, I'm afraid have got a great love for the outback there is nothing like it, great life style.

 But have to wait for a bit longer in getting back out there, too many obstacles in the way at the minuet but when it all clears, there will be no stopping us once again.  Have got my eye on a run going across from the right of broken hill, and coming out near Tambo I think.

Well I hope more answer to your post here, as it can help many when travelling around, all in the knowing where to stay to help avoiding headaches and many an argument at the end of the day when tired and grumpy in finding the places.

Honest Government, Fair Rights to property and compensation, Australia and our people strong and proud, reinstatement of values and respect
