Ultimate FREE camping at James Price Point, near Broome, Western Australia

You’ll find this breathtaking beachside free camp on Cape Leveque in Western Australia. Here’s an update from CAMPS Ambassadors, Dale and Tracey. This would have to be one of our favourite free camps.

Camping is only permitted for 72 hours. Also there are

Crossing the Nullarbor – our adventure from Western Australia into South Australia

On the end of our Big Lap, on limited time, we traversed The Nullarbor in two days. Kids were due back at school, we had businesses to run but were so keen to experience this famed road trip. We left Esperance and the beauty of Cape Le Grand National Park, through Grass Patch and the heart of Mallee Country. The Nullarbor Plain begins in Norseman, Western Australia – we saw camels here, which was pretty cool. “The Nullarbor” is an 1100km route. Here’s where we stopped: Balladonia was a lunch stop with a pretty multicoloured picket fenced playground. Oh, we were so

Must Dos in Broome, Western Australia

Cable Beach – Image by Overland Exposure Broome is remote! It is almost 2000 km to drive from Darwin, and over 2000km to Perth. When we initially planned our trip we just couldn’t fit it in. At Home Valley Station, which we had planned as our turnaround spot, we decided to extend our trip. I was so pleased, partly because I would finally see Broome! Here’s what our family loved.  1. Pearl LuggersSeriously don’t miss the Pearl Luggers, it was awesome! We all learnt so much about the industry, the history and early Broome. We tasted pearl meat and held

10 out of 10: Mitchell Falls Camp, The Kimberley, Western Australia

CAMPS Ambassador Amanda said: “We loved our truck overnighter here and we all forgot how fun and comfy camping in the truck is. “A basic bush camp but with hybrid eco toilets and a water collection point for boiling, and fire pits – what more do you need?  “Fees were $11/adult, $7/concession and kids 6 & up $3 /night.

What you need to know: Purnululu National Park – Bungle Bungles, Western Australia

Isn’t this photo by CAMPS Ambassadors Dale and Tracey amazing? It just makes you want to be transported, right there – walking under those those striking banded sandstone domes. Dale said, “If you are unsure on whether to camp or not in the Purnululu National Park, we would highly recommend it. We camped at the Walardi campground at the southern part of the National Park. “There are 37 campsites here and you need to book online to secure a spot. There are toilets and bore water but no fires are allowed and you must take all your rubbish out with you.” Warlardi
