The Randwick City Council has announced a campaign to stop back-packers setting up in popular beach-side car-parks this Summer.
The campaign focuses on dawn patrols by Police to enforce the no-camping policy in areas such as the Clovely beach car-park and at Coogee.
Randwick Mayor, Tony Bowen, said that back-packers were disturbing the areas with excessive littering, loud noise and even leaving toilet waste near where they stay.
Mayor Bowen says this is unacceptable and that rate payers should not have to pick up the cleaning bill.
However, moving back-packers out of one area might just be creating a problem for another area.
