Doug Jennings Park
Doug Jennings Park is at the end of Spit Point and big enough for many backpackers to camp here for free. Just drive around the park a big and find your favorite spot. When we stayed here we had no problems with rangers either. Before finding out about this awesome place, we stayed at parks, but never had troubles with rangers either.
If caught, we were ready to say, that we arrived during night and we wanted to look for a place to stay the next day – but never had to use it.
Spit Point Main Beach next to Seaworld
Spit Point Main Beach is right next to Seaworld. The place is on the same road to go to the Doug Jennings Park, on the same peninsula. It is well hidden from the main road and just meters from the beach.
You can also try to stay at the parking area of Seaworld. It is a private parking place, so at least the ranger cannot fine you for illegal camping.
