Got Jan Holland's Books ie Priceless Campsites & Rest Areas (North & South Editions), BUT does anybody know of any good spots to camp, other than the scant few listed in the books, close to Perth say an hours drive or so. You know the sort of place that after a days driving the tracks you can have a camp fire (season permitting), pitch a tent, and down a glass of your favorite poison without being hassled.


Make sure you give back more than you take

apart from the obvious ones such as dwellingup etc, Hoffmans Mill at the back of harvey is good- has some facilities, out of the way enough that not too many people go there and big enough to find your own peice of quiet.

Collie river, especially wellington dam is good. If you turn into the main camp ground, you will see a track that heads down to the beach. turn left along the beach and follow any of the numerous tracks. You do get a few people along there but everyone is very well spread out. Just watch out for the people that camp on the track and on the bends, as we nearly wiped out a whole family at night once!!

You could check out the CALM website and have a look at their list of conservation parks.

Otherwise all me and my partner do is keep driving until we find that little peice of quiet. Sometimes you never know what you may come across.

cheers and good luck

Head North to Lancelin and find the sand track to Cervantes. We towed a Camper with boat through here about 12 months ago. Great camping at Ledge Point and Grey (Both cray fishing settlements) or just anywhere along the track/beach. Pretty much isolated, good fishing, Awesome sunsets and plenty of beaches and sand tracks/dunes to explore. A great place to get away from the humans for a while.

Good luck
