Camping in Tasmania

Can you recommend a good camping site in Tasmania, possibly in the east? Somewhere with a fair bit of space rather than a caravan park.

Drove up the east coast two days ago. There are free camping spaces available - we saw one at Triabunna by the water (notice regarding it's location on the front window of the local shop, space, but no facilities; basically just grass, free); and we stopped at this site (right on the beach, toilet facilities, close to the road, somewhat crowded for summer, some people had settled in there for longer term). There are other sites that you can Google for, for example Forestry Tasmania allows camping at some sites.

Note that fires are a touchy subject and a camper has been charged for not properly extinguishing a camp fire that spread.
