Accommodation in State Forest Australia (Nationwide)

Here is some useful information and websites if you are planing to travel and camp in state forests around Australia with fur kids and human ones.
Dogs in national parks are banned country-wide (including in a vehicle passing through).
Some states have fees and bookings on unpowered sites, (generally these are appropriate for tents, a few for off grid caravans). Others are on a first come first serve basis, most camp areas have eco toilets, it is advisable to bring your own drinking water and adhere to the take in take out policy as most state forests do not provide bins to campsites. Check with each state forest authority with regards to campfire regulations and conditions.
