Hi Mike,

You have picked a good part of the WA coast to visit, unfortunately all of the good or reasonable campsites in that are are either DPAW or shire controlled, that means fees are applicable.

There is some bush camping to be had in that area, but not too much.

It is a sad reflection of the times I guess, but user pays seems to be the rule in that area, in fact it is the same all around the coastline right around to Esperance and beyond.

Good luck with it.


Regards

Barry H

Thanks Barry,don't mind paying our way it's more to do with finding access to the coast that doesn't have restrictions (Nat Parks) as we travel with four legs,should have a bond or separate fee to cover them,far too much authority applied IMO,regards,mike

Mike taking your 4 legged friend just makes it a bit more difficult, I agree it shouldn't, but it does.

I checked my camping "bible" and I think you will struggle to find a spot that allows animals, and access to the coast all in one.

Best of Luck

Vast majority of the coastline let alone the best spots are nat park.
As for being over regulated I like the peace and quite without kids on quads and trailbikes roaring around your fishing spot and the dogs barking at 5am waking everyone up as you go for a fish first light

Rightly or wrongly, almost all of the coast from Dunsbrough to Walpole is National Park. You may have to go a bit further afield if you want to take your dog. The beaches either side of Bremmer bay are mostly dog friendly. Good fishing to.

Hi - Rightly I would say..Good stretch of land from Dawesville to Myalup is also NP though a few gaps. As suggested before, in this area the actual beach is Shire controlled (Waroona and Harvey). I don't think they allow overnight camping on the beach but if you can stay awake all night you should be right :) A challenge traveling with pets, I would never bother myself, hard enough with childerbeasts :)

Cheers

I could say that if you had a dinner ( or not ) at the Fishing Club at Binninup Beach you could also use the public parking space and use the cold shower there, but as this might not be "quite kosher" I'm not advising it.
Or you could be just staying for the fishing ........................
