Any tips - any definite haftoo's for a two week trip between Exmouth and Coral Bay?

I've checked out the Explore Oz archives and the Yardie Creek Run page, but any more tips on good camping spots are very welcome. I know it'll be crowded for the next few weeks, but that's just the way it goes I s'pose - if anyone can explain to my better half what 'school holidays' means, by all means give it a shot!

There are very nice camping spots along that coast particularly in Cape Range National Park but can be a real headache during school holidays and you would be very lucky to get in at Coral bay without a booking.There are a few good camping spots South of Yardie Creek on Ningaloo station---no facilities.A place worth having a look at is Warroora station,South of Coral bay as there is good camping on the coast there at very reasonable rates.Be prepared to be "ripped off" for everything at Coral BAY SO TAKE IN WHAT YOU NEED.Good luck--

Thanks for the tips, lack of facilities isn't a problem as we're set up for bush camping. With a bit of luck most people will be heading home before Anzac Day and our second week will be a bit less crowded.

hi dw,
Staying in the cape range national park is great. Hope u can get in. One thing to rec. is make sure you take your fishing rods. Ningaloo homestead worth a look too. We also stayed in the lighthouse caravan park which we found ok.

Plenty of camping spots in Ningaloo Station, small fee. Winderabandi Bay is good, just south of the NP, at the northen end of Ningaloo stn.
Worth checking out, besides the reef, are:
-Cloates Point lighthouse ruins
-Whaling station ruins at Norwegian Bay
-Paddle up Yardie Creek (we used an inflatable - no power boats allowed)
-Ningaloo Rock Hole
-Cape Range
Take plenty of fresh water, but we used sea water for washing up/showering, saving heaps of fresh stuff.
Magic place!!
