I am thinking of going to Ningaloo Reef area camping for a week in July. Does anyone have any recommendations about where to stay (preferably bush camping, as we are self sufficient).
thanks,
Ozidave

camp anywhere along the coast in the national park best spot we found was at a place called pilgmagorna or something like that but be careful off the tides at the time

We camped at Winderabandi Point on Ningaloo station a couple of years ago. One of the best places I've ever camped at.

There is a large shallow bay that the kids could walk out for hundreds of metres and still only be up to their ankles in warm clear water. No matter where they were we could see them from the waters edge. It was almost like being on a tropical island without the palms.

We set up a sun shelter and had drinks and nibblies on the waters edge and ate fish caught in the bay. We even slept on the sand with no matress. Its one of those places I'll never forget.

Either South or North Lefroy bay - on Ningaloo Station. These are almost the only places to camp on Ningaloo Station that you can fish straight out from the shore due to the new sanctuary zones. You must bring in everything as there are no supplies (water, fuel, fire wood, chemical toilet - bring everything). If you are intending to go during the school holidays these spots might be quite full. I was there a week ago and there are already a lot of the regulars set in for the next few months. Let me know if you require any more info.

Yes all of the above is correct. Ningaloo Stn Sth has very brown water due to see weed. Ningaloo Stn North to Yardie Ck is Stn country Except for Boat harbour I think. 3 years ago it was $15/Adult/week Kids free. Take your own wood. Water is available at Carnarvon next to info sign.
