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

Budget and waterside camp: Second Creek Beach, Eyre Peninsula, South Australia

Our ambassadors Manda and Daniel thought this was a great small camp. There was only room for three or four sites. It is a flat site and there is a boat ramp (with 4WD access) and toilets, too! Payment is available onsite with an honesty box, but there are no bookings. You can swim, fish and bring your pet. There is a low ocean swell here because of the Islands of the Sir Joseph Banks Group, so no need to bring a surfboard! The camp is located south of Tumby Bay, on the eastern side of the beautiful Eyre Peninsula. What to see

Camping fees introduced for Irwin Shire Council, Western Australia

Knobby Head – image is courtesy Jono & Amy from @sameskydifferenthorizon Irwin Shire Council have shared good news and sad news. We’re pleased to hear that campsites are now open (well half of them). A decision was made to add a charge per vehicle per night of $20, 3 nights minimum. Unfortunately the other sites are closed- the town oval so they can ‘support caravan parks’. No surprise the council only compared prices in their region, and invited stakeholders included these other shires without free sites, and caravan park owners. I wonder how the other business owners of Dongara Denison
