A few weeks ago we camped about 20km below CP, we just turned off the highway, eastern side behind a ridge. Only about 200m off the highway but out of sight from traffic. Only stayed o/night. Don't have the co ordinates sorry but Member Blaze may be able to help you there.

Cheers

At the risk of asking the leeding obvious, would you not simply find a likely looking spot and pull off the road and camp? It is, after all, the outback, with lots of room out there between things.

As the redoubtable late Lennie Beadell said when asked about siting a weather station in central Australia somewhere: "I'm sure we can jam one in there somewhere!"

Have a great trip, and you'll find heaps of great camping spots - we find the best ones miraculously appear at about 4pm.

Hi Paul B, we normally go north this is our first trip across the Nullarbor since 1986 when we had a Mitsubishi colt towing a trailer, and we didn't do any camping at all this is going to be a totally new experience for us not knowing an area like we know the pilbara Kimberley and the N.T, but looking forward to it,and finding all these hidden places that other travellers have found in the past to camp in.

At the risk of being branded pedantic, it's Coober with a B not Cooper with a P.

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

The biggest problem these days is that as more and more country is fenced it is getting harder to just pull off the road to camp. the area in question has the added problem that as there is no vegetation for most of it it can be hard to find anywhere to "hide".
Travelling north from Port Augusta it is round 100k before you run out of fences and the fences return as you get further north. then the lack of trees and scrub makes it pretty hard as you get closer to CP.
We usually just stay in the first park on the right as you turn off the highway.
