Camping near Newcastle

Postby Daniel G » Thu Jan 13, 2011 1:07 pm

Hi,

Im going on a road trip from Wollongong, NSW to Tamworth, NSW and was planning on staying overnight somewhere half way-ish. Newcastle seems to be roughly half way and I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to just drive in and camp in a tent or the back of a ute for free/inexpensively anywhere around the area. Can be closer to Wollongong on the way to Newcastle too. I know of Ourimbah rest area but would prefer somewhere a little closer to Newcastle.

Your help is much appreciated.

I don't think that I would like to camp at the rest stop - too close to the highway and I think it would be rather noisy.

A quick look on ozcamps.net might help you find something on the way.
