The world is poorer for the passing of this lovely feisty lady. Alice has lost one of its leading lights and a woman who led by example. My sincere condolences to her much loved family.

Any camping etc. that is not in a regulated caravan park is basically subsidised by the ratepayers and citizens of the area. It costs to have free camping and cheap camping. Rubbish, water, toilet facilities.
