I am in Perth, new to WA and would like somewhere I can go for a few days, before I flip, set up the tent with the family etc and relax... (aka become human again)

Ideally I would like somewhere near the coast, secluded, 2wd access where the dog can come along, within 4 hours drive or so...

Any suggested secret locations that can be recommended would be greatly appreciated ?

Thanks in advance...

The Dwellingup area is a nice little neck of the woods and mostly 2WD accessible. Don't know what the dog situation is though. It's not on the coast, but set in some spectacular timber country with plenty of riverside camp spots. Only an hour and a half's drive from Perth too. Pinjarra, Mandurah and Yunderup are nearby as well.

This is a good warm up run I reckon.

Dwellingup while very very nice the best camping spots are in the National Park and of course a dog is a no no. There is a "bushy type" caravan park in the town which from memory takes dogs.
As an alternative check with Pinjarra Council or CALM re camping at Heron Point, on tghe east side of the Mandurah estuary and approached from Pinjarra.

Good luck.

A tough one, especially as a majority of the coastal camping in the SW is under the auspices of CALM.

You could try the Hamelin Bay caravan park, im not sure about there status on dogs, but a very nice place. Several of the caravan parks on the Holy Mile You'll understand why its caaled that when you see it!!) between Busselton and Dunsborough will accept dogs. Not bush camping but nice and shady with all the peppie trees.

Well we had a ball at Dwellingup, camped next to the river and contrary to some of the other posts dogs are not a problem.

Dogs have to be a leish however we had the WHOLE place to ourselves so she had some leish free time... the ranger was very nice.

Thanks to all who contributed and re Dwellingup... we'll be back !!
