4WD to the Homestead Camp, Dirk Hartog Island, Western Australia

The Homestead Campground – Images by Adams Family Travels Here’s an update from CAMPS Ambassadors, Dale and Tracey from Adams Family Travels: The Homestead Camp is located approximately 20 km from the barge landing. There are plenty of campsites here, including some suitable for groups. Most people will spend their last night here before they leave the island as it is close to the barge and it can be an early departure time for some. There are toilet and shower facilities as well as a camp kitchen. We enjoyed a coffee from the Inscription Bar & Cafe in the morning
