You'd be going through Jeramungup. Bremer Bay for a caravan park is in the shire of Jerramungup. Would be a fair way past the half way point though (and the Bremer bay bit would be a slight deviation)

Rob - Check out Badger's caravan park reports. This is built by contributions from caravaners and is the best reference around.

Are you going round the Southwest corner or in a cross country line down to Ravensthorpe?

If you go via H40 then on to H120 to Wagin and scoot across on H107 all the way to Lake King then via H40 again to Ravensthorpe then Esperance isn't far away. You could also follow H40 all the way to Ravensthorpe. 2 hours after that you're in Esperance. This is a simple 1 day trip on good roads a little over 600 kms. Last May I travelled from Norseman to Perth via Esperance then up via Ravenswood all in daylight and was in Armadale by 5:00 pm after a 7:30 am start. I didn't break the speed limit.

Alternatively, if you want to do it in two days then I'd go all the way to the coast via H30 and overnight somewhere around Albany. A far more scenic spot than Katanning. The last option is via the SW corner with a whole range of stopping options - I've heard that Denmark is very nice though I've never been there.

We usually go via Hyden/Wave Rock. Some people have been critical of the Wave Rock Caravan Park, its expensive, but we have always found it excellent and lots of things to do in short walking distance from the park.

The proximity of the rock lends itself to a late walk over the rock to watch the sunset, and for the more energetic a crisp walk in the morning in the cool up over the rock again. The colours are great for photography in the changing lights.

The Japanese travel halfway round the world to see this so it does provide an interesting overnight stop.

Cheynes Beach caravan park is also excellent with stunning scenery if you head up over the hill to the South of the park, although this definitely requires 4WD, and the park is sure not on the shortest route.

Cheers

Phil

If it's just for an overnighter, there's a beaut little caravan park at Woodanilling. It's run by a nice young couple. Good ablutions, good cafe/restaurant. I just Googled this:


Avalon Park Caravan Park
The caravan park is situated on the corner of Robinson Road and the Great Southern Highway, Avalon Park provides a range of powered sites and onsite caravans, the park also has all caravan park amenities available. For price and availability, enquiries and addition information please call 9823 1681

Hope the number's current

cheers

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

Another nice spot is Hopetoun, chuck a righty at Ravensthorpe, might be a bit out of the way for you but if not in a hurry it is a beautiful park not far from the beach.

Thank you all. We've decided to go via Hyden and return via Ongerup/Broomehill, detouring as need to take in some of the places suggested herein.
