Hi Everyone,

Going up to to Coral sea area, Ningaloo, Carnavon to Karratha area. Wanted to know where were the best beach camping areas were. Have a 4x4 and camp trailer. Looking for peace and quiet!

Thanks

G'day Johnnytasman
Think you might mean Coral Bay, we were in the area last year,
Try (North of Carnarvon) Point Quobba, Cape Range National Park, 18 klicks before Karratha Miaree Pool on the Maitland River.

Most of the Stations along the coast have camping close to and even on the beach.
They get very popular though, so "peace and quiet" will be very hard to find anywhere on the 'tourist route'. For that you will need a much more remote and hard to get at spot. Maybe Dirk Hartog Island?

Cheers,

We have in the past camped along the glorious Ningaloo coast. This was a few years ago, and although some water's edge spots had a few campers in, we always camped alone.

Open the brochure entitled "Parks of the Coral Coast" for a map of which beaches allow camping.

Hi Johnny - try emailing lefroyningaloo@bigpond.com - they allow camping on their station at ridiculously low cost if you abide by their rules. Superb peace and quiet- great beaches- excellent snorkelling and fishing but you need a 4WD to get in with a camper trailer or van.
PS you will need to have a porta potti as a condition of entry - no digging toilet holes near the beach! You can hire one from the station owners if you havent got one.
The station is between Coral Bay and Exmouth -tell them Bushbratz recommended their station.
