A camping trip in this part of the continent allows you to get as close to nature as possible and there are hundreds of campgrounds to choose from in the country’s national and private parks. Some of the most popular camping areas include Mount Monger Station, where you’ll find flushing toilets, barbecues, and individual tent sites.

If you head over to Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park you’ll be able to see migrating southern and humpback whale from the park’s jagged sea cliffs. This park stretches from Augusta to Bunker Bay. It features a forest, endless trails, and a couple of interesting caves to explore. There are a few campgrounds to choose from here, such as Contoes, Boranup, and Point Road campgrounds.

Over towards Espercance, you’ll come across Cape Le Grand National Park. This area showcases the nation’s wild coastal landscapes which feature rugged granite cliffs, sweeping heath lands, inland swamps, and wide sandy bays. Some of the best campgrounds in this park include Lucky Bay, and the park’s beach campgrounds.

Another beautiful park is Karijini National Park. Here you’ll find some spectacular waterfalls and soaring red gorges. This park is home to some interesting and diverse wildlife such as rock wallabies, bats, dragons, red kangaroos, echidnas, and gigantic termite moulds.

There’s just one campground here, which is Savannah Campground, located about five miles to the south of the town of Weano. There are also some caravan parks in this area. Most of these provide campers and hikers with laundry facilities, shady grasslands, and hot running water.

Western Australia is a wonderful place to explore and the prices at most campgrounds are more than reasonable.
