I usually go to Perisher from Sydney every weekend in Winter and years of putting up tents in the middle of the night and packing them away in rain is getting a bit old. I'm wondering if anyone has had success negotiating or has ideas on how to find season long camping where a sturdy canvas tent could be left up for the whole winter. Ideally somewhere with power and access to showers/toilet. Not sure if council restricts private landholders earning spare money this way but presumably attractive to people with a big lot of land. There are about 8 of us who camp almost every weekend. I believe someone in our group has started discussions with alpine adventists but I rather like a few schnapps at the end of the day and like the idea of my stuff being somewhere more private if its an option.
