Is it illegal to live in your car in Australia?


Is it illegal to live in your car in Australia?

Technically there is no one law that states that living in a car is illegal, but you might have a hard time parking anywhere.

Local councils almost all state that camping in car parks is not okay, and the police will be called to issue a move-on direction. You can technically live in your car in campgrounds and caravan parks as long as you pay the permit fees.

Living in your car is generally considered illegal in;

  • Queensland
  • New South Wales
  • Victoria
  • Australian Capital Territory
  • Tasmania
  • South Australia
  • Western Australia
  • Northern Territory
