Hi Ros,
which way are you planning on traveling?
The pacific H/way( about 686k's) or New England(773k's)?
Depending where in Newcastle your are and where in tweed Heads you will be heading to.
How Many days are you planning on taking to do the trip?
Will you be going off the highways into other areas and site seeing?
Are you tenting, caravaning?
Are you completely self sufficient?
Lot of variables,

Ok Ros,
Coffs Harbour north, Not relay cheap but a beautiful park is Darlington Beach, if you are a NRMA member they offer a discount. Very popular with Victorians over winter, very friendly. There are a couple of parks around woolgoolga. Woody Head Caravan park, we've stay there a few times over the years, Beautiful, off the high way just north of the Hardwood bridge over the Clarence. about 20 k's from the turn off down the Iluka road, Even Iluka is a great spot, catch a ferry ride over to Yamba and back.
Not a great deal of free camping close to the Pacific H/way, around the Clarence Valley. There are how every a lot of nice parks off the beat track closer to the coast.
Up the road a bit more is the South Ballina Beach Holiday Park, at south Ballina,
Turn off the H'way at Wardel, before crossing the bridge to your right and follow the river road to the ferry that crosses the Richmond river, keep driving straight ahead to the south side of the the Bar, river mouth.
South Ballina Beach Holiday Park
hope these helps.

Toorooka is on the Kempsey to Armidale rd Just past Willawarren, That area has been damaged by floods a week ago I don't know if you could take a caravan up there.
