We will have a campervan and will be driving from Melbourne - Sydney over the course of approximately a week late February. Can anyone please recommend anywhere that is free (or very cheap places) to camp with the van (rather than a designated "proper" campsite)? We have been looking and have information for VIC, but so far, all we have been able to find info for in NSW is further inland, by quite some distance....
Our NSW part of the route is (approx, but could vary): Lakes Entrance/Bega/Batemans Bay/Canberra/Sydney - the camps do not have to be in these places, in between would also be fine. We can deviate from this and it doesn't have to be exactly "on the coast" - if anyone has any advice, that would be much appreciated!
Are you allowed to pull up by the side of the road when you are outwith towns, etc?
