Dear All

Can anyone suggest a camp site that we may be able to use over the peak periods that is not too far from Perth? We prefer bush camping to caravan sites, but as the CALM sites are first-in-best-dressed we generally pre-book a commercial camp site on holidays like New Year and Easter. We feel this is a lot like camping on someone's back yard and would much prefer to be roughing it. If anyone could suggest a location where we could arrive without having to be first in line, we would be thrilled. I presume this would mean a spot where you could book ahead or so remote it is unlikely to be full. We are happy to travel between an hour and about 3 hours out of the City, more if it is really good!

Thanks
W

Check www.westernbelle.com

The section on camping in WA has a wealth of info. on spots to stay, camp, rest for a while etc. I'm sure you'll find some bush somewhere to hide in. Albany highway or Brookton way would be more likely than Great Eastern Great Northern or SW highways if you just "drive and find".

Sounds to me you need to get friendly with a station owner. We do this, make sure it's an each way street, and you'll have years of good camping & fun.

its a few hours more but the Goldfields region has got all the remote bush camping you could possibly ever require. Some good spots around coolgardie with rocks and dams for swimming/yabbying
