We are planning a camper van trip from Sydney to Cairns and need free or cheap places to stay. Does any one have any suggestions or tips ?

Purchase the Camps Aust Wide 4 book, it will have all the info you want re free and low cost camps.

Buy it from your local auto club if you are a member and get a discount.

That Camps 4 book is a great resource.
Very accurate in the information supplied.
I was very happy with it when we travelled through central highlands queensland.

We went from Yass to Rockhampton via the Newell recently.

We used a very old Camps 1 and 'Camping in Australia' by Cathy Savage. The thing I like about Cathy's book is that it does have a lot of free/cheap sites in it - mostly national parks and state forests. The latest edition is here http://www.boilingbilly.com.au/store/vi ... dProduct=8

On our trip we stayed at van parks, national parks and with friends and rellies. For 14 nights away from home out total accommodation bill was less than $250. We camped 8 and 'sponged' the rest.

If you want some more details give me a shout.
