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

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

Turtle Bay, Dirk Hartog Island, Western Australia

Turtle Bay – Adams Family Travels Turtle Bay is approximately 88km from the Barge landing point on Dirk Hartog Island, WA. It is located at the northern end of the island and is a private campsite. It is an awesome spot to snorkel and also watch the passing marine life which includes dolphins, whales, turtles and sharks. In one afternoon we spotted at least 40 whales breaching as they headed south. If you walk down onto the beach from the campsite and head to the right and up the beach, you will see heaps of baby sharks swimming in the

The Spit, Gold Coast, Queensland #3 Best Aussie Beach 2022

Another isthmus – this time in one of the most popular locations for beach holidays – Queensland’s Gold Coast. And it’s at the business end! I grew up knowing “The Spit” as the home of Seaworld – where we could go see the dolphins, orcas, seals and rollercoaster! People have commented on the name, but ‘spits’ are common in Australia. It is a narrow landform, attached to the coast, often near a river mouth. Here it is the gateway from the ocean to Gold Coast Broadwater at Southport. On our last visit to Main Beach, we ‘discovered’ you could escape into
