Hi Shane,
this site has a search engine for dump points and public toilets. I did a quick search for your area and unfortunately didn't come up with any other than the one you mentioned. Pretty poor for a tourist place like Broome.

Cheers

Thanks Peter,

As I said I went to the BP Servo and it is in the most awkward spot ever no way anything bigger than a trailer could fit. We will head out and see if we can find a spot not so far of the main road, we stayed at Barn Hill on the way here and the funniest thing happened, well it was funny for us I posted a story on our website if you want a laugh at either the situation or at us have a look :) Here ---> Shane & Sherrons "Our Life in HTML"

Thanks again.

If you are calling into Cape Keraudren on the way through, there are a couple of dump points there. And you might be lucky enough to bump into us....we'll be there as of tomorrow.

Cheers

Hey Russ,

Thanks for the info, we were thinking of stopping at the DeGrey River Rest Area tomorrow, do you think Cape Keraudren would be better, our book says it is a prone spot for crocs and careful of high tide or something like that and this missus is a bit suss.

If we call in there we will look out for the Landy, We are in a Black Rodeo with MH Plates, and a White smooth finish van.

Thanks

Shane

Shane,

Cape Keraudren has numerous campsites, all well spaced and well back from the water. You'd be really unlucky to come across a croc. Last time we went there we didn't see so much as a slide, let alone an actual croc. I stood in the water when fishing.

You can camp at the beach, the point or around by the boat ramp. The tides are no different to anywhere else in the north. You can see where the tide comes to and therefore can camp as far back as you feel is necessary. Most of the campsites are well above high tide level, and by that I mean at least 5 metres.

DeGrey River site is OK too, but for the pure scenery of the place, you can't beat Cape Keraudren.

Cheers

Russ.

"I stood in the water when fishing. "

Russ you obviously have never heard of the saying "what if" especially when in a a spot known it may have crocs

MN1,

Yeah, I know. But what if I walked out the door of my Daughter's house this morning and got hit on the head by a falling coconut? Or what if I get bitten by the Tiger Shark that ate the crocodile that was stalking me?

You just have to weigh up the risks I guess. The sightings at Cape Keraudren are few and far between, just like Cossack, where I've spent the last 7 weeks. Anyway, I lived to tell the story didn't I? Lol.

Cheers

Russ.

If you have a cassette system why not use a public toilet. Reason I would not have a black tank in the MH as they are a problem to empty. Many of the CMCA members with black tanks are to lazy to find a dump point. Many CMCA members dump the contents at camp sites when leaving with no regard to other campers or the environment.

Hi Paul

Unfortunatly our van is not fitted with a cassette. However we have a dump point not 15 minutes from our house so it is not an issue of emptying them near home.

We have done 14000kms this year and this is the first time it has been an issue finding a place it just seems that one of WA's biggest tourist towns is not equiped for it.

We do the right thing and don't leave our mess for others to clean up. We live in the bush at home and understand the impact.

Thanks
Mrs Andson

Check with Main Roads WA. Dump points have been added to some of the 24 hour rest areas. There was one where we stayed last night (Beasley River on the Nanutarra Wittenoom Road) and i noted one at the Robe River Rest area on the coastal highway. Good move Main Roads. That is just two so i'm sure there will be others.
