Illegal camping is a significant issue from both an amenity and a compliance perspective. Council local laws prohibit camping in certain areas and impose fines.
If you see someone camping illegally you can report it below.
Free Stay Permits
The free stay permit concept is an ideal way to encourage consumers to stop within CBD areas and to explore and support local businesses.
Visitors who use the free stay permit sites will need to be self-contained (shower/toilet).
