TOP THREE cAmPING SPOTS
1. Cape arid
Located 120 kilometres east of
Esperance, this 280,000ha park
extends through beautiful beaches
and rocky headlands, crossing a vast
range of natural habitats. For wildlife
aficionados, there are more than 160
birds to keep an eye out for.
tips Tracks are safe for most
vehicles, but a 4WD is handy for
exploring hillier spots, such as
Yokinup Bay where fishers can
try for mulloway and salmon, and
surfers will enjoy the swell.
2. Cape le GraNd
Granite headlands line the coast
and white quartz sand and pristine
blue ocean set the scene at this park
50km east of Esperance. Campers
can dabble in bushwalking or
relaxing on the beach, while more
adventurous folk can try their hand
at rock-climbing or snorkelling.
tips Bring your camera for the
animals lazing about on the shores
of Lucky Bay, including the honey
possum, quenda, brumbies and some
of Australia’s laziest kangaroos.
3. woody islaNd
Just the place for a relaxed camping
retreat under eucalyptus trees.
Guided walks, visitor centres and an
eco retreat (if you’re not prepared to
get your nails dirty) await the avid
traveller, and there’s a playground
for the kids so everyone’s happy.
Wake to the call of birds and the
swell breaking on the shore.
tips Take your scuba gear and
head to Shearwater Bay where you
can swim among an array of fish,
seagrass and beautiful coral – fishers
keep out, this is a spear-free zone!
