Camping near Kalbarri
Submitted: Thursday, Aug 17, 2006 at 13:31
We're heading up to Kalbarri
for a few nights in the warmth and are trying to find somewhere to camp with our swags and 4wd that preferably isn't a caravan park.
Normally we'd stay in the national Park, but from looking at the CALM website we can't stay there. Does nayone have any freecamp or bushcamp suggestions?

You can free camp at Lucky Bay about 50km's south of town. It is real back to basics coastal camping though. Can be windy and is very sandy.

You can sneak (sshhhhhh everyone - I'm sure it's not legal) down to the river just as you hit the park. You are back onto what i presume is station land when you get down past the fence. A couple of tracks; one overlooks a "maze" effect in the river rapids, with the main track going right down to a pool (some name like Hardibut pool). The spot
had signs of having been well camped in on the times we went down a few years back. 4wd only track, and i wouldn't take a trailer down there. Galena Bridge
is a nice spot
, but too near the highway for us to overnight, and usually has a few campers at night.
