TOP 3 | Great camping sites
1. Margaret River Tourist Park | Station Road Only a 5-10-minute walk from the town’s cafe and shopping
strip, the Margaret River Tourist Park is covered in shady trees, and offers the full gamut of camping facilities:
kitchen, laundry, shower, toilet and barbecue equipment. No pets allowed here, but there are cottages for hire
and caravans are welcome, too. The spot makes a great base for food and wine trips through the region.
2. Prevelly Park Beach Resort | Mitchell Drive This one’s slightly out of the main drag, but only a few minutes’
stroll to Prevelly Beach, where the river mouth meets the ocean. Prevelly is internationally recognised for its
spectacular surfing conditions and also offers great diving, snorkelling and fishing. The camping and caravan
park is fully grassed with camper’s kitchen, bathroom facilities and a liquor store on site. No pets allowed.
3. Big Valley Campsite | Rosabrook Road This sprawling farm site encompasses a beautiful hidden valley amid
rolling hills, and is central to most attractions in the area, including wineries, restaurants, art galleries,
bushwalking, caves and canoeing. The quiet, friendly camping grounds are on a working sheep property, and
include kitchen, showers, toilets, barbecue facilities and a campfire spot. Dogs welcome.
Herring, bream and tailor – just
some of the delicacies waiting
to be caught. Here’s the whisper
on where to catch them.
Prevelly Beach Just 10 minutes from the town centre,
this is a beautiful site for shore fishing. It’s also a popular
swimming beach for families.
The Rivermouth You can spend hours exploring the
Rivermouth. Head north and you’ll find an interesting
reef area littered with sandy sections and deep holes to drop a line in.
Surfers Point Pack a wetsuit and reef boots for this location– there are
several spectacular skippy holes just below the main car park. Pick low
swell days to be on the safe side. Between Gnarabup Beach and Grunters
This stretch of coast features a number of rocky points to cast off. It’s
relatively well protected and ideal in a medium sea breeze. Boodjidup
Beach You can expect to hook everything from herring to flathead and
tailor here. In autumn the annual salmon run makes for great fishing too.
