Hi all,

My friends and I are looking for a spot to go camping over easter. We want to go 2 or 3 hours from Perth but we only have two wheel drives...

We want to take ours dogs so that counts out most Caravan Parks, and we want to do a bit of fishing...

Anyone got any ideas? We will have two camper trailers and a few tents..

Cheers

Hi Bomber,

If you can drive a bit futher, 4-5 hours there is a dog friendly park at Peacful Bay, just out of Walpole. Plenty to do around there. The Park is a nice spot on the beach

Your chances of getting into Peaeful Bay at easter are less than the chances of winning Lotto.
Bookings for easter are made as you leave the year before.

I thought that might be the case, can be worth calling up though, I managed to jag a spot at coal mine beach by calling up last minute over the new years break

You can get into Lucky Bay - just south of Kalbarri with a 2wd but would have to walk up the beach. A really beautiful spot though and worth the effort - again around a 5 hour drive from Perth.

PS - the photo and co-ords that come up with the Lucky Bay link are not the Lucky Bay I am talking about.

Would we have to walk to set up camp?

We have camper trailers so could we find a spot to set up with them?

Thanks,

Hi Sue,
I have just edited the places page for Lucky Bay to reflect it's location. So if you would like to go to the places page and add a new Lucky Bay with the Co-ords that you have for your location, that would be great.

Bomber - you wouldnt have to walk to set up camp and you definately could find a spot to set up a camper trailer. There is even a well for you to collect water from in the area.

Fred B - I have to run out to the airport right now as hubby is flying in from work but when I get back I will get right to those co-ords.

Cheers
Sue

I did a quick look up on Google Earth and have the co-ords from there at
28.02.59
114.09.49


You need to turn off of the Northampton to Kalbarri Road keep heading to Kalbarri until you reach Balline Road - dirt road with a monument on the corner and a stand of sheoak trees, its a fairly major dirt road. Head down the mail track DONT turn right at the 90 degree bend. About 1klm along you can turn right and then follow your GPS. I dare say there will be quite a few people heading that way for Easter so you will not get lost - having said that there is always plenty of room.

Please bring out what you take in as the area is still in excellent condition thanks to the shack owners and careful campers.

Quinninup eco caravan park south of manjimup.

2 - 3hrs drive, dogs allowed, fires allowed, $15 per night per siite, redfin perch in the spill way dam and the warren river in good numbers/sizes, fairly easy to catch.

I don't get a kick back or have any affiliation with them, have just had some great weekends there camping with the kids.

Fairly quiet and not well known - so don't tell every one eh? LOL

my 2 cents.....

cheers, Keith

G'day Bomber,Alexander Bridge on the Blackwood River east of Karridale on the Brockman Hwy. or Big Brook Dam out of Pemberton are top spots. Both are Bush camping with only toilets and nothing else. You will have to be there early as they are very popular.
Good luck, Tom

Sandy Cape 14klms nth Jurien could be an option.

You can find out about it by looking in Google Shire Dandaragan-Sandy Cape.

Like everywhere else will probably be busy at that time.
