A Family Camping Trip to Sandy Cape 2nd-4th November 2 hours North. Quality time with your kids this summer. Get Dave for free!

Lets get a Group of Families together Camping at Sandy Cape. Then Dave will be there to help set up and show you all the best places.

Welcome to all my Neighbours and Fellow campers. Here is a link to help you with information on our Great Camping Spot - Sandy Cape           https://www.dandaragan.wa.gov.au/

The cost is approx. $20 per night per family. There a drop toilets. I will be accommodating the ladies with one of my portable shower set ups using a portable instantaneous gas hot water system.

I have been a passionate camper for most of my life and feel very lucky to be able to share with you all one of the many fantastic camping locations in Western Australia. I will be there to help you. However, we will have a short get together on a Sunday afternoon a week prior to help with preparation and with any questions you may have.

I am conscious of the costs of raising family and hope that my price of $350 for the Hire Camper Trailer for the weekend is money well spent (normal price $390-$490). My own boys Ross and Luke have many memories of our great family camping trips over the years. If you involve your kids in the set up of your campsite it will also serve to make them more independent minded. Be warned though, they might want to go camping again the following week.

We will be stoping at Wedge Island on the way with a lunch/toilet stop at Hangover Bay. Then we head for Sandy cape to set up the campers. After Breakfast and consensus the following day I will take you to either Lesueur NP or Stockyard Gully Cave or both. The kids will love the Cave (if they bring a Torch!). It is Very safe and easily walkable, 300M long. A highlight for the kids!

Please feel free to invite your friends or family. We will be limited to 10 families/cars/campers. Hence, I will be monitoring this blog on my website for numbers so I don't disappoint anyone. 

Just leave a comment or question in the reply box below and Dave will get back to you ASAP

Lets meet at the shop on Friday morning to start on our Camping Adventure.

Landor Races

The Landor Races are an annual event held at the racecourse which is currently 22 miles (35 km) north of the homestead (-24.93912, 116.97845). Originally the racecourse was located about half a mile from the homestead. The racecourse has its own airstrip, stables, water and electricity supply, dancehall, dining room and grandstand. The public campsite that is adjacent to the course has its own toilet and shower facilities. Races are held on the first weekend in October which coincide with the school holidays. The races were first held in 1921 when stockmen from stations in the area such as Mount Augustus, Milgun, Mount Seabrook and Erravilla held a race to find who had the fastest horse on their day off. The races have been held almost continuously ever since, with races not being held for several years during World War II. No starting gates exist, all races are walk up starts.

Landor Station

The station is situated approximately 130 miles (209 km) by air north west of Meekatharra.[1] The distance by road is considerably longer, 236 miles (380 km), via the Great Northern Highway.[2] The station occupies an area of 3,504 square kilometres (1,353 sq mi) and has double frontage to Gascoyne River, Landor Creek and Aurila Creek over a total distance of over 200 kilometres (124 mi) with the property mostly composed of flood plain country. Well grassed with Buffel, saltbush, bluebush and cotton bush and other vegetation including Mulga, Acacia and Currara.[3] The property was established prior to 1925 as a cattle station, but then swapped to sheep. Approximately 12,00 sheep were shorn in 1925 with numbers increasing to 40,000 in 1926 and 5,000 in 1927.[4] In 1998 the 4,050 square kilometres (1,564 sq mi) property was acquired by Richie Brennan from Malcolm Landor or Landor Station is a pastoral lease and sheep station located in the Gascoyne McCusker. In 2013 Brennan had reported that cattle worth A$500,000 had been stolen from the property over the last decade.

Indian Ocean Drive, Free Camping Trip 2 Nights/3 Days 2 Hours North. Its time to see the wild flowers this Spring14th-16th September.

I would like to take this opportunity to personally invite Ric and Sarah, Beth and Jeremy to join us on our short adventure up the Indian Ocean Drive on the 14-16th September. Lets say Good bye to Winter and enjoy the wild flowers this coming Spring. Also, we will be able to sit around a Camp fire enjoying drinks and each others company. Its not long after this date that the Fire Bans come into place.
We will be leaving from my shop in Balcatta 30 Erindale Rd 8.00am on the Friday returning approx. 3-4 pm on the Sunday.

There is NO charge to my customers wanting to tag-a-long if Hiring one of my Camper Trailers.

To my Loyal customers who have purchased a Cavalier or Eureka Camper Trailer from me, please join us at No charge, as I would love the opportunity to catch up for a yarn.

I will organise pick up times for Hire campers and an information session sometime soon.
Things to consider –
Make sure your camper batteries are fully charged and fridge is working at least a day or two prior to departure in case there is a problem.
A CB radio is a great idea to take along so you can communicate to other people in the convoy and receive directions.
As we are going to be visiting and staying at beach campsites, taking personal protection against sand flies is a good idea. I can recommend “Nature’s Botanical” from your local chemist shop. Sand flies maybe non existent but it is a good idea for those people who are magnets to be prepared!
Remember we are independent campers and need to take everything with us. Hence, please think about a portable toilet for the first night and pop up shelter especially for the ladies. Just remember that the Dept of Parks and Wildlife require that you don’t leave a footprint at their campsites and take everything out with you. This is the case now when visiting Station Stays as well. There are dump stations at small towns along the way for disposal. If you need help purchasing equipment please let me know ASAP as we don’t have much time before departure. Take comfortable walking shoes as we may do an easy walk up to the top of Mt Lesueur approx 1 hr return trip and a torch for Stockyard Gully Cave. I have a lot of equipment available and advice for this trip when the need arises. For example we will be using my communal fire pit, large frypan, grill, and kettle (always left on the boil). For the ladies I am taking my portable instantaneous gas HWS that people are welcome to use for a hot shower. Might as well camp in style don’t you think?

Chemical Toilet or Bucket Toilet or Jimmys Thunder Box for our first night camping?

Rik Demonstrates how to use the Chemical Toilet.  However, he chose the Bucket Toilet with the bags shown here for simplicity.

Jimmys Thunder Box is what I purchased because it can easily be folded up flat and used with biodegradable bags.

Purchased from Go Camping on Erindale Rd Balcatta

I will be making this Portable Hot Water Shower available for everybody, with a pop up Shower tent. Ladies first!

Just fill up a bucket of water from your own camper and bring it over to this shower.
