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

It’s Ngumban, not Ngumpan! 

Ngumban Cliff Lookout Image Courtesy Sheng Yee Camps Australia Wide Ngumban Cliff Lookout should be how WA site 682 in Camps 10 is written.
