These are well worth exploring and will give you a series of nice breaks during your long drives. Fresh seafood is available in many of these towns, as well as waterfront bars, entertainment, funky boutiques, and a laid back atmosphere welcoming of travelers. An unique mix of surfers, fishermen, artists, and local workers make up the majority of the population, and the area is known as one of the most unique and bohemian beach scenes on the planet. If this sounds good to you, then make sure to schedule in some stops in these beautiful and unique coastal towns and villages dotting the southern coast of Australia.

 

Free Camping

 

There are many opportunities for free camping along the southern coast. Before setting off your should do your research and find the free camping areas that will be along your route. In southern Australia, there aren’t many places that aren’t beautiful, so chances are these camps will be in a great area, many of them right by the beaches or desirable towns along the coast. It is possible to do an entire journey utilizing free camping spots, and many travellers have been known to do just that on their journeys. Make sure to check out travelling message boards and other online resources to find out the details for the areas you will be travelling in. By going with free camping spots you can majorly save on your budget, using that money for adventuring, food, and other important needs.
