Is it illegal to sleep in your car in Australia?

The legality of sleeping in your car in Australia comes down to the council area you are in. For the majority of Australia, it’s fine.

Sleeping in your car near a busy beach will generally see you receiving a move on order.

Queensland is basically a no car-sleeping state in it’s entirety though.

The obvious exception to the rule is sleeping in a caravan park, public camp ground or on authorised private land.

Sleeping in your car is legal in;

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