Hi wB

What type of camping are you looking for? Once you get out into the open country in those areas, finding a suitable place to pull off for the night is fairly easy.

Although normally bush campers, we stayed at the tiny Sandstone caravan park in this lovely little town, and stayed a few days as it was so nice. I have blogs on touring around Sandstone 2008, and the Goldfields around Kalgoorie Coolgardie 2007 in MyBlog which may give you some more ideas - or some more questions.

Hi wB.

This site, Exploroz may be able to help.

If you click on the Places tab above, it will take you to the places screen.
You can enlarge this map/screen by clicking on the button at the top right corner of the frame. (the square one with the four arrows pointing outwards)

Then select the area of interest; do this by positioning the cursor on one corner of your area of interest then holding down the shift key, "dragging" the border of the area of interest to the extent you want.

The map will then automatically adjust itself to your area of interest.

Click on the "features" tab, just under the word customise.

Deselect the "All points" checkbox.
Then select all the types of places that you wish to see in your selected area, in your case it might be "Camps & Accom" or others.

Those places, if any, in your selected area will appear on the map. If you click on one of them with your cursor it will display a summary frame. If it looks to be of further interest select the "Open Place" link in the summary.

Cheers
Alan
