Heron Point, not the right time of year but was great for crabs. Right on the estuary.

Herron Point is not free - it was $12 per night, two night limit, last time I checked.

$12 per night, that's daylight robbery - have they done something with the ablutions?

Hi Tony

A few years ago the National Party said they were going to put in new amenities with Royalties for Regions funds. It had not happened when I last enquired early last year, so probably not.

I was tempted to drive in and have a look on my way home from Perth yesterday afternoon, but I really didn't have time.

We left WA in 2006, prior to that we camped there regularly on our way south. Brian ran the place then - one of our favourites: crabbing, swimming, walking across the estuary, yachting, canoeing - great place. Sorry we left now, nothing like that here: Heron, point, Chapmans Pool, Alexandra bridge, Honeymoon Pool, Grimwade, Canebrake Pool, Parry's Beach, you guys are spoilt rotten over there!l.

Belvedere camp area just north of Australind- I think there may be a small fee to pay but there are toilets and firewood supplied..

Belvedere and The Cut in the Leschenault Peninsula Conservation Park charge $7.50 per person per night. Concession card holders pay $5.50.

There was another at Jarrahdale that was quite nice, had an ablutions block - not near the water though.

Had a good run to Cottislow beach for my first western sunset, the tennis, the surf comp, the port and saw a classic Fiat as well as that Chinese warship making it's way in. Took some great pics of a stucco block of flats with four colourful women having a boozy aussie arvy in the foreground.
Moved down to that abandoned and cleared surburb Wattleup for a night over. Then I blasted down to Bunbury blowing a water tank and steering collum uni along the way. Spent some quality time visiting Bunnings, Supercheap and Truckline...
Steve's op is tomorrow and I may have to return to Midlands Mike's place if it doenst go well...
Thank-you all for your posts.
Pray for my mate Steve, life is too short and the road is too long...
