Self-contained vehicle means shower, washing, toilet, cooking and sleeping must be contained within your vehicle.  No water is to be let out onto the ground, surrounding bushes or the sea.

Camping on Cooee Point, in a tent, in a vehicle which does not have its own water supply, washing and toilet facilities, and a waste water tank, or with a dog, is not permitted.
