Free camping crackdown will pay for itself with fines

One of the best free camp sites in Australia this morning, Sunday, 1 May 2011.  The only problem with it is that it is on the northern end of Sunshine Beach in Noosa National Park, at least 500 metres from the nearest public loo. Plenty of laws against this, but no enforcement at all.
