    Dear All,

    I have a mission-on to East Australia/ Sydney-Cairns-Sydney. First 3 weeks in March.

    My missus is an Air Hosty so the flying part is nailed.

    Our indecision is this.

    Camper waggon from Cairns is two thirds more costly than a car.

    The two thirds saved could buy us into cheap hotels instead.

    As much as I've googled I cant seem to find RV spots for free along the Aus East coast.

    There are pay RV sites but nearly as much as a cheap hotel it seems.

    Car will use a 1/3 less fuel also.

    The Whitsunday's are also on our list to stop by. Again no real info of free RV sites.

    I dont doubt one could just pull over somewhere on the trip and bed for the night in a camper but basics like a loo & shower will be needed especially for my lady. Also security and being moved on by the law worries my missus.

    Can anyone who's camper-van'ed the east coast of Aus or driven it drop us some good intel ?

    Many Thanks,

    The motels are cheap and very good standard with pools and bars etc. I back packed on the Oz Experience and the motels/hotels/hostels were great and you can get double rooms easy enough.
