Hi All looking for a recommendation for an overnight stop somewhere near Harrismith, Dumbleyung, Lake Grace. It will be our first night out from Perth heading towards Ravensthorpe. Trip planned for mid september Not really keen on C/P's there will be 4 to 6 vehicles.

Any thoughts?

Hi Noldi

Not sure if this is going to be any help but as no one else has had a go I will have a try.

It's been a few years since I have been that way but there were a few places along the Dumbleyung-Lake Grace Road where you could pull off into a bit of bush. They all looked a bit small from memory and not designated as camping sites.

The only other suggestion I have, would be to go out along the Kulin-Lake Grace Road "Tin Horse Hwy" and camp at Jilakin Rock overnight. In the morning go down the Kulin -Lake Grace Rd to Lake Grace and then on to Ravensthorpe.

Sorry I can't be of further help.

Jilakin Rock is a great spot certainly. On the Wagin - Lake Grace rd is Lake Dumbleyung where I think you can camp (might need to ring Dumbleyung shire to confirm) as well as the old Nippering townsite which is now just a nice patch of remnant bush with a little track leading into it.

Hi Paul

Thanks for that. I had never heard of Nippering before.

I will be interested to hear what the Shire say about Lake Dumbleyung. Always looking for somewhere different to stop overnight.
