Hi All,

Well after a long absence from the forum I'm back...albiet probably spasmodically though! Anyway, I'm trying to find a suitable bush camping destination for Easter but not having much luck so I'm hoping one of my fellow formumites can come up with a few suggestions. Criteria are within easy reach of Mandurah/Perth, bush camping away from the hoards, an area of some interest, maybe even some water for swimming (or at least paddling) to keep the littl'n happy. Haven't yet decided on whether to just go away for the 4 day break or take an extra week.

Did the Holland Track & Cave Hill Woodlines last year and loved it. Have considered doing this trip again but would prefer to do something different.

Thanks in advance...

Hi Melissa,

Welcome back and congrats on the new addition!

Not sure how far 'easy reach' is, - we're planning a return trip to Shark Bay over Easter - probably a bit far to travel for the four day break, but certainly a goer if you take the extra week...

We're looking for a weekend getaway for the week before easter as well - Trying to come up with an alternative to Lane Poole reserve which is our usual 'quick weekend away destination- so will be interested to hear other's suggestions.

Cheers,
Pete

I will taking my usual beachside jaunt East of Esperance to Thomas river which has excellent campgrounds and a creek for paddling not to mention the fishing before heading back to Kalgoorlie via a detour either to mt burdett or peak charles fair way from perth I guess but then that is why it is less crowded

Nice pic of the baby who's name I have fogotten! Well done thinking about camping with a newborn bubby - must be the benefit of a Camprite! Can't help with camping sites in WA but Birdsville sounds nice - 45C, flies, dust and Ruth.
