Parking “on the road”

Have van but don’t want to travel?

There are places around Australia where you can park for free or cheaply, long-term, and access shower and toilet facilities. But where are they? A quick search of the web did not return them and I am told they are getting harder to find.

How do you find them? Years ago I bought a book from the RACV that had these unrestricted camping spots, but do they still exist? You tell us.

How you can help us and other readers


None of our authors has lived on the road, parked or otherwise, so we are not the experts on how to do this. Some of you are. Please tell us your experiences and your tips and tricks in the Have your say field at the bottom of the page, and let us know what we have missed.We would love some photos of places you’ve stayed.

This website is in its early days and we rely on those in the know to make it the best it can be.

Have your say
