Great little site. Good toilets which were unfortunately manly when we w arrived having been abused by some inconsiderate idiots, however a call to the council had them cleaned up within a couple of hours. Very impressive. Grass area for tents , gravel for motor homes/ caravans. Two nights max stay here, no charge.
People who own the pub/ cage next door have granted the use of this land for freedom camping. Support them if they are open, they are great people. They also offer showers at $5 and you can negotiate to stay longer on their grass area behind the pub.
