My name is Tien, I am new to this forum and to camping
This December - Christmas period I will be taking my family (2 Adults and 3 young kids 2-7yrs olds) to Surfers Paradise for 7 days, we have already booked for accommodation well in advance. On the 8th day we will be travelling towards Sydney, back home. We will be doing many stop overs along the way home like Byron Bay, Port Stephen, etc. We want to camp out for the rest of our hoilday - we have 7 days for this but i am finding it hard to find free or cheap camping grounds. i went on some of the caravan park website, their price for 6 people in tent, unpowered site is $340!! and thats with discount already!! thats very expensive for 1 night stay!! I was hoping to find free camping grounds or places that charge under $100 a night for power tent site for a family of 6.
Can anyone please help me and suggest good places, locations to stop over, route Surfer Paradise to Sydney. Or any good family activities to do or places to see along the way?
A list of free camp grounds or affordable camp sites will be appreciated as well!!!
I was just wondering can you rent tents from caravan parks or camping sites? We havent brought a tent yet or any camping equipment
Still doing calculation to see whether we will have enough money left over to buy camping gear. Maybe we can just huddle up and sleep in our 4WD!!
