Camping along the Indian Ocean Drive, just 2 hours North of Perth
Welcome fellow campers to our Blog where I am introducing you to a spectacular drive, discovering great camping spots along the way. Below are some pictures taken recently along the way. The philosphy behind my camping trips is quite simple. To get away from the crowds, cars, towns, and caravan parks, viewing ocean settings, great National Parks, and camp in tranquil bush settings. We will all be "Independent Campers" taken along all our own camping equipment, campers, food and water. Don't forget I am there to help you with ALL your needs. To make it simple, easy, and memorable, with lots of fun. You will have lots of questions for me so just reply in the comments box at the bottom of this page. Thank you.
This Blog is a work in progress. Dates available in October 13th - 15th, 20th -22nd, 27th - 29th. RSVP by 1st Sept
To start, here is a rough Itinerary with a more detailed one to come soon -
Friday: Depart 9am stoping at Wedge Island, Hangover Bay (Opposite the Pinnacles to have Lunch), Tour of the Rock Lobster Shack (maybe purchase a Rock Lobster for our first meal around the Campfire?), visit Jurien Bay, Sandy Cape Camp Ground.
Two Camp Grounds to choose from for the first night:- Sandy Cape (a Beautiful Bay just North of Jurien Bay Township) OR Tuart Reserve ( a very nice Bush setting away from everybody, South East of Jurien Bay)? Everybody to gather around our Campfire to cook Crayfish or on a traditional Aussie BBQ.
Saturday: Break Camp 9am. Lesuer National Park (there should be Wild Flowers everywhere at time of the year!), a 1/2 hr leisurely stroll up to Mount Lesueur, 1/2 trek to Stockyard Gully Cave National Park (Lunch), make camp at Lake Indoon with plenty of time to explore the lake.
Sunday: Lake Indoon. Break Camp 9am. Choose from sandboarding the huge sand dunes of Lancelin or canoeing Moore river in Guilderton. Lunch then head for home.
NOTE: The idea of the 1/2hr Rock Lobster Shack Tour will only happen if there is consensus amonst the group, as we are suppose to be getting away from the crowds. But it maybe of interest because it is an Industry that is so important to the prosperity of the local town of Cervantes, harvesting thousands of Crayfish for the overseas market. If most people haven't seen the Pinnacles then we can include it in this Itinerary?
