Free camping sites in Wanneroo Western Australia

Free Camping ……. and caravanning is one of the more rewarding ways to explore and experience a place. This is especially true in a country like Australia, famous for the great outdoors.

There are plenty of campsites tucked away – but if you don’t know where they are you can easily miss them. People often assume that it won’t be difficult to find a place to stopover on a budget but soon discover it can be a lot more expensive than anticipated. Or worse, they can’t find somewhere to stop and continue driving when they are tired.

These “free camping” sites include rest areas, picnic areas, parklands or parking areas next to a business. You can also stay for free at some hotels, state forests or RV Parks – we even come across free caravan parks!

Some would only be suitable for a brief overnighter on your journey and may have a maximum time limit. Others are next to pools or rivers, with toilets and you are welcome to bring along your pets and stay for longer.

Generally, less pricey means less facilities. However, we list free camps with pools, showers, playgrounds, near boat ramps and wonderful views. Some are close to world class destinations, and Aussie icons.

Just use the symbols or the filters to find them in our comprehensive guide books and Camps Australia Wide App!

Here’s a preview of campsites and caravan parks we have found with 30 years of research! Happy camping…

FREE Seaside Camp: Membinup Beach, Western Australia

by Overland Exposure Our CAMPS Ambassadors, Dan and Manda said Membinup Beach, WA is 100% WOW! Here’s what they said: 1hr East of Esperance Off-road set-ups only as the road is unpredictable and dirt. The entrance to the beach was tight, but our big rig fit, just! There is a camping area behind the dunes/beach, but only a few large spots and the rest are small. You can camp on the beach itself but be mindful of soft sand. No facilities at all, so fully self contained is required Tides come up really high so think about where you set-up

Three Mile Pool, Western Australia – Image by Michael Lennon Thanks to Michael Lennon for sending in his photo.
