The caravan park in Emerald where we are staying has come up with a great option for free-camping travelers – ie us. They have a large field at the rear of the camp which they let free campers use. Water can be topped up on the way in and all the other facilities of the van park are also available, loos, showers, camp kitchen, etc). But instead of paying $35 + for the van park we are only charged $12 per night. Full marks to them.
We take advantage of a country singer around the campfire and cannot go past the local Irish Pub for a pint of Guinness. And we finish off our visit back to Emerald with a round of golf.
