Hey All!! With the warmer weather coming on I was wondering if anyone had any tips on camp sites in Northern NSW close to any waterways or the ocean (I'm in Brisbane... I'm sure there are plenty and I'd like some more personal advice than finding websites) I only have 2WD and very basic set up NOT needing electricity. I would like some toilet facilities however showers arent important. Hmm I think thats all... oh I would like to be able to have a camp fire but its not high on the list...

Hi Frilly you may try this site for an idea lots here http://www.bigvolcano.com.au/database/camping.htm
try the clarence river widerness resort you can have a fire there and its a nice site toilets camp kitchen river pan for gold dont know if you ll get any though free pans at the office Clyde the horse will come to great your barby plate, canoes are free in the river a bit of a steep drive going in we went in a 4x4 but friends of ours went in a falcon and mitzi magna also Wooyung Motel & Caravan Park not far from potsville fire and toilets clean showers. Lavuka you can have a fire and a nice place for a mountain walk and see a 1500yr old fig tree it is a 4x4 camp site but lots go there with 2wd just to camp hope this helps. Alan

Flat Rock Tent Park at Ballina is a great spot. It's right on the beach about 5k's out of Ballina. It has toilets and hot showers, fires are permitted and wood is supplied. There is a small store at the office for the very basics like bread, milk, ice, gas refills etc.
