Hi all

Just wondered if anybody had any experience of camping whilst travelling up the east coast of Oz. If so I'd be pleased to here any stories, campsite reviews/costs etc. and generally whether it's recomended or not.

Same here, I plan to do a mix of hostels and camping but mostly the information I can find is on hostels. I'd love any info on camping in Oz

Personally, ive never camped in that area, but i know how many campsites and hostels there are up that coast cos so many people do it.

Im not sure what you are doing for transport, but have you considered hiring a camper van??? this would worthwhile as there are so many places to explore that you might not be able to if you are hitch hiking etc...

I'm not sure about spike but I'm considering purchasing a jeep while there & selling it before I go. I'll be there for long enough however I don't like the idea of potentially not having a buyer at the end. Anyone had any experience with "buy backs"? Do they usually give you a fair price?

Me and a mate have a car so it should be easy enough to keep all the stuff in the car and just pitch up when we get a chance.

Has anyone any idea of how much the campsites cost??
