Yes we (5 people) were asked to leave the Koonchera Dune area a couple of
weeks ago. A posse of 3 vehicles arrived and followed us out, they shot a
steer on the way out (maybe letting us know they meant business). Other non
birdos were also camping but had left before us. It is a problem when areas
are in books like Thomas & Thomas that show camping areas.
However it was good to see that the manager of Mt. Lyndhurst allowed campers
who had asked permission, we had heard of birdos who were camping and had
been chased out a
week before we were there .
Permission should be asked before venturing onto properties, regardless of
the legalities or tenure as a common courtesy.
