A little bit of confusion as to where and where not to camp. Trust your instincts and do the right thing and all should be ok. We spoke to some locals and they stated you can rest overnight pretty much anywhere appropriate east of town. Police and Rangers do patrol but they didn’t interfere with our plans. Good stop with friendly locals. Excellent coffee in town. Bike walk trail from old lighthouse ruins lookout into town. Toilets bins in town.

Very windy, but enjoyed staying in the glow of the lighthouse beam. Flattest spot in top right corner. Good quiet overnighter but check weather.

There are actually two designated RV overnight sites in this area as detailed on the Port Macdonnell information brochure available from local town information visitor centres. Only the nthn site is signposted for RVs and is probably the site mentioned in the earlier review. It is located on a cliff top overlooking the wild sthn ocean where waves can be seen breaking over in-shore reefs and lobster boats tending their pots. This has to be one of the most spectacular overnight RV sites in Australia!
