We will be leaving Perth after Christmas and will have about 6 weeks to make our way back to Tassie. We were hoping to check out Esperance/Cape le Grande, Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula on the way home...buuuuuttt...don't have any camp sites booked. Is it a lost cause? Any tips for where we could stay or other routes home please? Family of 4 towing a camper trailer.

Hi Jannette

We were caught at Easter , in southern WA , and ended up visiting the wheat areas for a few days. All good.

Why don't you call a couple of caravan parks in the towns and ask them. Might be an idea to rough out a timetable and make some calls. With a family , and I guess a need for toilets and showers, you do need to have a bit of certainty for a greater part of the trip.

I would book, we travelled to WA from VIC in March this year, we did not book but did manage to get accommodation where we stopped along the way and back but sometimes couldn't stay where we wanted. Park managers etc warned to book ahead as they were over 90% booked out. I would imagine it will be worse now as a lot more are hitting the road, will chaotic in the future just to many out there now.

Well you have certainly taken on a challenge. Pretty much anything close to the ocean is normally booked a year ahead on EP and Yorkes. Especially if you are looking for a powered site. For example, we booked a site at Streaky Bay in March this year and they only had four to choose from back then

If you log on to your Parks site and check out both those NP's you will find they are also pretty much fully booked already as well. WA allows bookings six months ahead which makes things challenging to plan much with them.

You will find the same challenge/issues on our Limestone Coast. Robe and Beachport will already be fully booked pretty much. Although there's some smaller private parks down that way that just may have some vacancies.

All the best with it. Phoning around now is a good way to get your trip plan organised
