I'll be in Perth mid July. Are there any nice camping spots in or near Perth? I know there are Caravan Parks but I'd rather camp by the beach, a river, forest or somewhere nicer.

Heirreson Island. Walking distance from the CBD.

People camp there all the time with no interference from authorities.

get a good tan first.

Depends what you mean by near and what sort of camping. "Perth" now stretches nearly 160km from nearYanchep in the north to past Mandurah in the south. Apart from caravan parks there are a few spots in the national parks east of Perth like Avon valley and further south near Dwellingup. The rest is pretty much suburbia! Mid July I wouldn't be wasting much time near Perth. If the last week is a sign we might, just might be headed for a normal winter which in July can be cold and wet.
Enjoy your visit.

Cheers

From what you say, I think you'll be lucky to find a genuine camp spot, rather than a caravan park near Perth.Places that maybe up your alley that I'd recommend are anything from an hour to two hours out of Perth.

As others have said true 'bush style camping' near Perth is at least an hour away (Lane Poole Reserve, Dwellingup etc)

Tent only camping is available at Beelu -
haven't been there myself so can't comment further

Walyunga is currently closed, I think, due to a recent bush fire

I found a link online that suggested Wilbinga as being close to Perth. Any good?

Wilbinga Grove is one of the coastal spots that the Perth 4WD weekend warriors go to, to get their 4WD fix, and maybe a bit of fishing - have been there a few times.

Without knowing about the camping rules of the place, as I have only ever gone there on day trips - in between Wanneroo Road and the beach I would say that you could easily find a good camping spot; I wouldn't be leaving your gear there unattended though.
