Congratulations to Bunbury Council with 3 new free camps planned.

The Western Australian city announces a trial of overnight rest areas for a period of two years at the following locations:

  • Wyalup-Rocky Point – Barbecues, ablutions, picnic tables, litter bins, beach showers, drink fountain, ocean views.
  • Ocean Drive Carpark – (at Scott Street) – Barbecue, picnic tables, litter bins, beach shower, drink fountain, ocean views.
  • Maidens Reserve – Playground, barbecues, ablutions, picnic tables, litter bins, protected bush setting, walk trail.

All of these stops are free, with a 48 hour limit. Bunbury Council will also investigate the possibility of installing a dump point somewhere within the City boundaries.

Once they are open, travellers will need to call into the Bunbury Visitor Centre to pick up a permit.

You’ll be handed a welcome pack including information about Bunbury such as locations of commercial caravan parks, maps and tourist guides. 

City officers will patrol the sites to ensure the areas are only attended by fully self-contained vehicles – because camping in tents, or sleeping in cars will not be permitted.

After twelve months, council will consult with users and the community to assess any social impacts before doing a final review at the two-year mark.
