Doolena Gorge – a Western Australia free camp by the water

Photo credit: Denhym Kelly-Wilson @denhymn from Instagram Who knew that only half an hour from Marble Bar, the hottest place in Australia – there was a waterhole to cool down in? Doolena Gorge is shaded by trees and the cliffs most of the day, so perfect for a swim. Follow walking tracks to the next creek or climb up to the waterfall. If you are camping here, make sure you arrive in time – dusk is a must, this is when the sun lights up the cliff face. Facilities are non-existent, but pets are welcome. Access this camp only during

Ngumban Cliff Lookout

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. RV traveller, Michael Lennon has advised us that unlike the Hema version, WA main roads spell it with a ‘b’. Please update your CAMPS 10 book.  Add this site to your list if you want to be in the ‘middle of nowhere’ admiring sunset on the ranges. About an hour from Fitzroy Crossing you’ll find this camp area, looking over a huge gorge and the Mueller Ranges. Park on the hill, near the edge.  Facilities wise,

Freedom Camp at Ballinyoo Bridge, WA

Freedom Camp at Ballinyoo Bridge Western Australia

Here’s an update from Lyn Quilty: “A fantastic free camp spot is Ballinyoo Bridge, on the Murchison River. Big open area for larger vans or groups, then smaller, more private sites going well back from main road. Just follow the tracks. We had a quick swim each day, saw a couple kayaking, lots of walks, wildflowers, good spot for birdwatching, curious emus, wood available. A beautiful spot for a few days. No facilities other than million star accommodation.” Thank you Lyn, for sending in your photo and sharing your review with Camps Australia Wide. Ballinyoo Bridge is WA site 405

It is about a 5 minute walk to the Ablution Block at the Information Centre and another minute or two to the town centre. There is no signage restricting the use of generators and it is not close enough to the
