I am heading off in July from NSW to tour the W.A. Coast, Kimberlies, NT and back via Ayres Rock etc. Have a nearly 4 months to do this. In our rough plans we are looking at going from Esperance to Margaret River to Perth. However, being winter, in off road campers we are concerned about the temperatures in that area in July, as wether windy and cold. We will be staying to coastal areas us much as possible.
At this stage we have 3 familys with kids down to 18 months old travelling. If to cold will just shorten this part of trip and head north. Just looking for some feedback please.

Bring yor longjohns ,see bushtrax.com site for some good off road trips in that area ,if not to wet try to get into the Moores hut trip (you can camp at the hut and also use it if weather turns bad,only a couple of km to the beach) and out to fish creek for a day drive at least (fish creek is on the Moores hut trip).Pemberton caravan park is a top spot in that erea they will let you have a campfire on the back sites ,a great spot for the kids only a short walk at the rear of the park to old steam trains.Hope this helps Born to drive a 4x4 , not a keyboard

I live in a small town between Esperance and Margret River. Nothing to see where I am unless you like wheat and sheep...but we've done plenty of travelling around the south west and can give you some good info that may save you some time and effort.

Regardless of the weather, I suggest you still put the south on your agenda because there are some beautiful spots. Shame to come all this way and not see them.

If want to, I am happy to give you my email address and fill you in.
You can even drop in via my place on your travels. I am heading over to the eastern states commencing late Sept on a 4 month trip too, so you can point me in the right direction.

Anyway, let me know. I can always just give you a run down on the forum if you wish.

cheers

Andrew,

Sounds good. All the info the better. My email is davekay@dodo. com.au (been told to break address to stop adverts being sent, don;t know if true or not, so just delete the spaces.) Might be safe on this site anyway.

As to your trip will help where I can. I am leaving on 4 July and not back till late October so will have to help you before then. Let us know your general plans and might recommend some places. I currently live near Canberra but lived on south coast (Ulladulla ) and Central Coast (The Entrance).

One place that really sits in out memories of travelling down southern W.A. was staying at Shannon NP, beautifull campsite with hot water showers, great for the winter stays and make sure you go up Caves road from Albany to Margaret river.
The NP around Esperance are amazing though winter is probly not the best time for coastal spots with the littlies.
Keep in touch if you want any help with the northern part.

Chris,

going to have to get a better map of the southern end of WA. I eventually found Shannon Nat. Park, but apart from finding the name of, no info. Also same with Caves Rd? Need to find further info and to keep in touch, same with up north, only real schedule set is to be in Broome by 7 August so mate can get his mother in law off plane. Only other date set is the one to put her back on a plane in Darwin.

Travelling to Central Coast NSW in 2 weeks to met up with others and discuss details better.

Thanks.
