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

September 14 @ 8:00 am - September 16 @ 4:00 pm

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?

OUR CAMPSITES
1st night Tuart Reserve, Cervantes Rd ( this may change as I continually discover more Great Locations)

Wedge Island, our first stop

Hangover Bay for Lunch on the first Day. Great BBQ and Toilet facilities

The Cervantes Lookout overlooking one of many islands off the Indian Ocean Drive

Tuart Reserve is a free camp site, a great spot for our First night.

Its not camping unless you have a Campfire. A great way to get people to come together.

Stromatilites, one of the oldest living organisms on Earth.

Dynamite Bay, Greenhead. A naturally protected swimming spot for a quick dip.

Lets call in and say hi to some of the Local Farmers

An easy drive on the way to Lasueur NP

Lasueur NP should be ablaze with Wildflowers this Spring.

Stockyard Gully Cave is safe and a lot of fun. Bring your torches.

Living the Dream!

Camping at our secret spot on the second night in a protected, calm bay.

Lake Indoon. Checkout where the Local Farmers Camp.

Sandy Cape is a favourite with Families when Camping.

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.

    Hi David Goulding, I just brought a secondhand 2002 Cavalier Camper trailer from off of Gumtree last week. (live down in Mandurah) I was wondering what the cost would be for a single person on a pension to take this trip. (just checking if I can afford it) 🙂

    Really looking forward to this trip Dave. The wild flowers should be magnificent & getting back out into the bush in a civilised style will be most enjoyable.

    Hello fellow campers, looking forward to meeting all for the trip on the 14.
    I am a 44.5 year old Australian but have 25 years of German roots prior to that. Have traveled WA for a while with different groups and on my own.
    I have had a few trips with David’s WA Campertrailers hire group just for fun and to enjoy WA , always interesting and new things happening on those trips. Hoping to be able to support and answer any questions from new or seasoned campers.

    My Fellow campers.
    Please bring a bag of firewood with you. Its Not camping without a Campfire!
    You will need something for mosquitoes as there is a lot of water around at the moment.
    Feel free to use my NEW JIMMYS THUNDERBOX TOILET, with spare biodegradable bags available. Bags then become your disposable item that can be dropped off when passing through the next township. So bring strong, quality, rubbish bags with you on this trip.
    FOOD:-
    I am making it simple with a pre cooked chook and salad for my first night dinner. Cereal and coffee for the first breakfast.
    Every night I will be making available a communal campfire, big frypan, Grill, and Hot water pot, to help yourself. So feel free to cook up a steak or the like and make yourself a cuppa.
    Lets all have a cooked breakfast the second morning on the Campfire.
    Please let me know if you have an allergy to bees as they are present at Stockyard Gulley Cave NP?
    Don’t forget your head lamp or powerful torch for the Cave. However, lets hope it has been reopened because it was closed last week because of all the rain we had. It will be great to see it flowing, which is rare!
    DONT FORGET WE PASS THROUGH TOWNSHIPS IF NEEDING A QUICK TOILET STOP OR SUPPLIES?
    IMPORTANT:
    Please make sure any rubbish bags are securely stored away or tied up high in a tree to keep away from animals lurking around the campsite. Especially prior to going to bed. Otherwise, rubbish will end up all around the campsite perimeter or in the bush.

    Hello David and Fellow Campers,
    We were so looking forward to this trip but as you know my husband Jeremy is very unwell with a nasty virus. I hope you and the rest of the group have a dry and enjoyable time. We have not given up hope that we will get to do another trip.
    Kind Regards
    Beth
