Stay as tourist after L permit expires

Hi all,

My L permit and work contract expires in August. This page and this page say that "Australian citizens can enter the Schengen area as a tourist or on business without any visa for a maximum stay of 90 days or less within a 6 months period."

Can I stay in September as a tourist (not working)? What about if I exited the Schengen area in August and returned as a tourist?

There are some other threads in this forum asking the same question, but there has been no definitive answer. I've tried asking the authorities but so far can't even get a definitive answer from them!

What I'm really looking for is anyone who has 1) done this with no problems or 2) done this and been fined/detained. (see the poll)
