Immerse Yourself In Nature

Push the limits with these hikes and views near Albany, Western Australia

Granite Sky Walk, WA – Image Overland Exposure CAMPS Ambassador, Manda said “Albany Region in WA seems to like you pushing yourself and your limits to walk at heights! The Gap and Granite Sky Walk are both 20-30minutes out of Albany.  The Granite Sky Walk is not for the faint hearted, it is a 2km hike which is a constant climb, then a huge boulder manoeuvre, a ladder and then walking on a platform on the edge of the granite boulder. The Gap (at Torndirrup National Park) is not as difficult, even wheelchair/pram friendly.” “When you come to places like this, you

2 AMAZING Lucky Bay camps in Western Australia

Lucky Bay, Kalbarri – Images Adams Family Travels Most people know Lucky Bay near Esperance in WA but there is also a Lucky Bay campground 46km south of Kalbarri and it doesn’t disappoint. Both are wonderful bases to explore two unique National Parks – one on the west coast the other on the south. For us it was, regretfully, the last beach stop in WA before we crossed the border. Lucky Bay, Kalbarri  How does a protected bay, reef, massive sand dunes and a budget campground only 50 metres to the beach sound? As you travel 2km down a gravel

Fires are allowed – there is shade and mobile coverage. If you are after facilities or power, stop at

Kununurra town We had to get through some work deadlines, and back then we secured an awesome family rate – so it was our longest stop in our
