Caravan and Camping

Camping overnight in the great outdoors is one of the best ways to experience the untouched wilderness of Australia’s South West.

There’s nothing quite like camping in winter, cosying up by the campfire and toasting marshmallows, telling stories and soaking up nature. The South West comes alive in winter and there’s plenty of great spots to go caravan and camping.

Sites with stunning views of the coast or lovely spots nestled under the peppermint trees are well cared for by the local rangers. Most national park campsites have limited facilities, so you’ll need to be well-prepared.

 Secluded campsites are on offer in most national parks, and for a very small fee. Keep in mind that these campsites tend to have limited facilities, so you’ll need to be well prepared. Alternatively, most towns within the South West have caravan parks with ample facilities to ensure comfort (hot shower, anyone?).
