This is a lovely spot, especially since it is free. The toilets are cleaned and paper and soap supplied. Other people used the cold water showers. Short walk across the bridge to town. There are 4 cafes, a supermarket and a pub. The pub is up for sale and there were no patrons. Loved the sound of the cicadas.

Caravan Park which is currently unmanaged but provided as a free camp with partial services including bins, water, dump point, toilets and cold showers I assume by local shire. Facilities are well maintained, a great stopover.

This is a picturesque spot on the edge of the village of Cann River. It was formerly a functioning caravan park but for a reason I do not know is now under the control of the shire council. The sites are very generous. They come with town water. Electricity has been disconnected. The amenities are clean and well maintained. The hot water taps have no handle. There is a dump point. The best thing is that this lovely camp is free. Clearly the council knows something. This village has a population of 400. It has a pub, about 6 bakeries, a supermarket, an enormous petrol station and sundry other shops. Last night there were more than 30 RVs plus campers. I imagine if the park closed, so would the village.
