This website provides a link between Farmers who are willing to have self-contained vehicles park on their land overnight and Travellers moving between towns.
The map on the front of the website is not big or an active map, but it does give an idea of where the farms are in Australia – approx. 100. We are not big on numbers as most of our farmers who choose to register do so more to meet people and just provide a safe environment in more isolated areas, and don’t want non self-contained campers.
We provide the information to access our Farmers – each Farmer has their own page (via the active map or State lists), with photos, directions and descriptions of their farm and surrounds that is only via a Username & Password provided on Registration on the website. This provides our Farmers with security of knowing then who is on their land (self-contained COF members).
At present, when you stop on a farm you pay a min $10 donation, or many of our farmers have set a cost and may have other facilities or extra options available and this varies obviously, but most would average approx. $10-15/n. (Self-contained = Toilet on board. Grey water is OK)
