Australia: looking for the free camp spot

We arrived yesterday in Sydney after leaving Melbourne on monday. We rented the same type of car again and as it was for a short period, it was more expensive. To compensate we decided to camp as much as possible for free. On Monday We drove to Lorne by the Great Ocean Road and stayed in a free camp spot in middle of the mountains (only toilets without lights). Tuesday we drove to Wilson's Promontory and as a national park We paid 24$ for the camping. Wednesday we stopped near Genoa again in a free camp spot. This one had almost everything as in the past was a real camping: toilets with lights, cold showers, picnic table and BBQ (see picture). Thursday we had a free area in the kangaroo valley in mind, but probably because of the rain and flooding it was closed. But we found a camping in the neighbourhood, which was just 20$ and where we got DVDs for free :)

Australia is wonderful for camping, you don't need to look too hard to find something nice.

Ayer llegamos de nuevo a Sydney después de salir el lunes de Melbourne. Volvimos a alquilar la misma clase de coche y como era sólo una semana, salía mucho más caro. Para compensar decidimos  buscar campings gratis. El lunes fuimos a Lorne por la Great Ocean Road y encontramos un camping gratis en medio de las montañas que sólo tenía dos retretes y sin luz. El martes dormimos en Wilson's Promontory, como es un parque nacional hay que pagar 24$ por el camping. El miércoles encontramos una verdadera joya cerca de Genoa. Tenía casi de todo: baño con luces, duchas con agua fria (el agua caliente es lo único que le falta), mesas de merendero y BBQ! Para el jueves teníamos previsto un camping gratis en el área del "valle del canguro", pero cuando llegamos allí estaba cerrado probablemente por las lluvias y el riesgo de inundación. Pero encontramos otro camping en los alrededores por 20$ y en el que prestaban DVDs gratis :)

We're missing the crocodiles

So far we have seen and interacted with many of the typical australian animals: we cuddled a koala, hand fed kangaroos, helped little turtles to reach the sea, saw little penguins, swam with sea turtles in the reef.... the only we haven't seen are the crocodiles despite all the warning signals in the north and the couple of walks we did. But who does want to swim with a salty?!
