Illegal camping

Overnight camping is permitted in areas that are signposted as designated for overnight camping.

These specific camping areas are set up with amenities, provision of bins for rubbish and lighting, that way campers are safe, and the community retain full access to public space throughout the holiday period.

Our community values their natural environment and want to see our parks and reserves protected and cared for.

Penalties apply for dangerous and illegal parking practices and camping and staying overnight in prohibited locations.

The community can support efforts of the Council to keep our shire clean and safe by reporting problems such as illegal camping.
