We are really enjoying this bush camping which allows us to pull in for a night for free. It helps to keep the budget from blowing out especially when crossing the Nullarbor and fuel has been over $2 per litre. So long as we have enough water, food and battery power, we can stay out for a few nights. Last nights spot at Afghan Rock was perfect, just far enough off the road so as not to hear the road trains.
