Johno - There's no tourism facilities at Bidyadanga, and tourists are not encouraged to visit.
The link below gives you all the official campsites between Pt Hedland & Broome.
Camping in other places apart from the officially listed ones is discouraged.
You can camp overnight in old gravel pits, on vacant Crown land, or at the MRDWA official 24r rest areas - but that's about it.
Port Smith, near LaGrange, is highly recommended.

Cheers - Ron.

Whilst at 80 mile beach c/p a couple of years ago, we spoke to a couple who worked at Bidyadanga.

I asked similar questions regarding staying etc.

They said visitors were welcome during daylight hours and could fish from the beach, but as there were no facilities were not encouraged to camp there.

Its policy may have changed but I for one would not be dragging my caravan in there to find out.

Port Smith, Barn Hill, 80 mile, Cape Keraudren, Pardoo Station are all reasonable stays.
And at a push Pardoo R/house !
