Assumes web access.. as most of Australia has no cell phone access? 
Satellite phone!
Sorry my budget does not stretch to running a web search through a 
satellite phone for info on a camp site..

Think you'll find a website search is ok for highly populated countries 
that have lots of high capacity cell phone coverage. Might cover most of 
the users most of the time?

Me? I look for a camp site somewhere ahead after lunch time. Usually 
basic will do me for an overnight. For more than one night .. cloths 
washing would be good.
If there is nothing on the map .. I'll look for a wild camp - small back 
road away from houses (note to self - mark out houses on OSM along the 
ways I travel so I can see them on the map!). I'll usually start looking 
for wild sites after say 15:30.
