Get Camps 3 it will tell you where all of them are. Stayed at Gleesons landing after xmas last year heaps of spots. There are heaps all along the SW coast past Corny Point.

Innes Nat Park takes some beating. Wild ocean beaches great scenery, wildlife. good bush campsites with showers etc. Towns closeish with pub/restaurants and scenic drives in the area.

Just had a squiz in my new "Camps Australia Wide 3" (www.campsaustraliawide.com.au) - available from the shop here. There are a number of camps listed in the lower peninsula, adjacent to Corny point, plus Pondalowie Bay - IF you are into self sufficient bush camping, there are a lot more places you could stay along the coast on this peninsula... Innes NP is great..... the staff at the info centre would put you right. Gym Beach is also good - not in the park far as I recall - lot of bush campers were going there years back. Browns beach is very popular with fishers, but they are often feral and the whole thing can be best left to them at times.

yes there are some great spots around innes nat park, on the enterance into the park is the tourist info and there they will mark out on a map all the different places and what's on offer in that area, just one thing though they did tell us when we inquired is that they do have a bit of trouble with things getting pinched from camp sites so you might need to keep an extra eye out. there is a spot that is in a locked up area that people can't drive into with out a key, that sounded quite nice too but ran out of time so we didn't check it out. good luck

also another thing to remember is that you can't use your own shower (due to water restrictions) and that any wood that you use is to be bought at the shop or bought in with you.

Quote: "also another thing to remember is that you can't use your own shower (due to water restrictions)".........I presume you mean you can't use "their" water? When we camp, we take ALL our own stuff as much as possible. This includes our own water (for showering with the Twine etc) and fire wood (if going to a NP).

i am pretty sure that when we asked about taking our own shower the tourist info said no mainly because of the lack of water and that they don't want the sullage from the shower in the park, all i know was that they did say that you aren't allowed your own showers.
