This expanding section will have lists of where to find dump points, water refills, free and low cost showers and free and low cost camping in towns worth supporting.  These will be progressively added as towns are researched. 
Home > Lists and Links > Resource Index > Dump Points New South Wales and Western Australia
 
The information to be included in this section has been in the main resourced from outside sources, including Shire Councils and Visitor Information Centres.  It is shown as provided by these and other sources.  Changes may occur from time to time and although I will endeavour to keep up to date information in this section, it may not always be current or accurate.   This section is growing as more regions are researched.  A town may not be listed because that area may not have as yet been researched, it may have nothing to meet the criteria for following lists or it may be due to difficulties in obtaining information for that town or region.  Camping lists are not intended to supersede other listings and publications, which are more comprehensive, but are seeking to highlight towns and areas which have gone out of their way to encourage the mobile tourist by provision of services, which may include low cost camping, dump points, showers, fresh water supplies and/or dedicated parking for large rigs.  These towns and Shires want us to visits and deserve our support.       

Many of the public dump points are listed at the following:

 

Public Toilet Map

 

DumpPoints.com

 

CMCA Dump Point listings is now available to members only

 

Wiki Camps app for iPhone and Android also has a Dump Points section

 

For those without internet while travelling Camps Australia Wide (free and low cost campsite publications) also have dump point listings, and these show which are available to the public and which are for caravan park customers only.

 

Some public dump points have been provided in conjunction with KEA campers and CMCA and in most cases these have public access for no charge. 

 

You will find other dump points not listed in all the above resources as their installation is increasing. 

 

Where Councils have advised that a dump point is in their plans, this has been shown as such in the following lists, with the expectation that they will be implemented within a year or two.   

 

If you know ahead of time where to find dump points you can better manage the timing of when you empty.    

 

The following listed dump points are available to be used free or at low cost, and many of these will be included in some of the above lists.  Those in caravan parks where a higher fee, sometimes almost as much as an overnight fee is charged will not be listed here, although they may be listed on the above websites.  Some caravan parks allow the public to use their dump points without any fees or for the low fee of $3 - $5.  If you find any of these dump points which I have listed charging more than a few dollars, please let me know.  Most dump points are suitable for emptying cassettes whereas only some are suitable for direct hose emptying as from some buses; this may or may not be noted in websites and publications. 

 

See here for what to do if there are no dump points and you need to bury cassette contents in Toilets article
