Looks like a big area - do you have to be a CMCA member to camp there? I believe it is also FULLY SELF CONTAINED vehicles only?

I stayed there a few weeks ago. Large area, no facilities but there could be if all goes ahead after 12month trial. Need to be self contained. A cmca member comes around every afternoon for a chat with a questionaire to fill in. No you don't need to be a member.

Gday...

I am not sure whether these "rules" are what the "CMCA man" dictated, although CMCA were actively involved (perhaps initiated it) in having this car park created for "travellers".

However, this is what the Ballarat Council has dictated -

Pretty obvious brikies.

See no 7. You must be a member of CMCA and have a "leave no trace" certificate displayed to legally stay there.

Yes that what I thought , But I didn't think Happy Wanderer was a member of CMCA and weather she had a built in grey tank or weather they would let you have a potable tank to run grey water into . Sound like if you don't have a sticker don't stop .
