Following are some of the best beaches for camping in WA.
- East of Bremer Bay
- Francois Peron National Park
East of Bremer Bay
Bremer Bay lies five-and-a-half hours south-east of Perth in Western Australia. It’s a little coastal town located in-between Albany and Esperance. The best camping spots are located on the east and northeast sides of Bremer Bay.
You will need to be self-sufficient and use a 4WD to get to these camping spots. You should also have a good quality GPS when you plan to travel to Bremer Bay.
There are a number of tracks that lead to the camping spot. You can easily get lost if you are not familiar with the area.
There are four big beaches where you can camp. They are free of charge, but you need to keep them clean and tidy for everyone to use.
The wind can become strong at times so make sure you have some protection against strong winds if you plan to camp on this beach.
Yeagarup is ideal for anyone looking forward to big dunes, brilliant fishing facilities, and 4W driving. This is located four hours directly south of Perth.
Once you arrive at Yeagarup, you need to fill out some paperwork and pay some fees before entering the camping spot. You can book a site online in advance to avoid last-minute disappointments.
There is a little dune at the start but you just need to follow the markers through the dunes to take you all the way down to the coastal track.
You can camp along the Warren River if needed, however, you should be extremely cautious when camping near the river.
At least four vehicles have sunk there and are still buried. The sand can become like quicksand at any time. Yeagarup is a great location for fishing and salmon are common around Easter season.
