A quick email to let those that camp on the Ningaloo Coast that the Learmonth Bombing Range will be closed to campers.
The area is from the southern boundary of the Cape Range National Park to the North gate Ningaloo Station, includes Sandy Point and Doddy's Camp, I camp in this area regularly so it will affect me as well, the reason given is the amount of rubbish that accumulates in this area, including the thoughtless idiots that throw rubbish into sinkholes and wells, one particular well is absolutely full with rubbish and has had to be covered with a steel lid and padlocked, I personally had to dig out several dozen beer cans and other rubbish out of one sinkhole over the Easter period. When the area is to be closed to campers is yet to be determined.

Why would you even want to camp in a bombing range.

All that unexploded ordinance there would stop me, and as an ex RAAF person who has used that range, I do know there is plenty lying about.

Just a change off the topic, does anybody know the road conditions up around Exmouth at the moment? They had that huge volume of rain last week and I was wondering if there is any water still across floodways or washed out roads. I am heading up that way in a few days, so it'd be useful to know.

Cheers, Will.

south of Minilya there is water on the road, Lyndon River crossing there is water across the road, but all passable, Yardie Creek is wide open, I believe someone passed through it at low tide today.
