Explore the Best of the West

Camping in Perth is well-worth the expedition!

The Great West often goes untouched by those who claim they want to see all of Australia by road. That unfortunately comes as not much of a surprise – the terrain is tough and the drive from Sydney is long. However, there’s a reward for those who make the trek, and it comes in the form of beautiful beaches, bush and forest scenery. Whether you’re hitching the caravan to your towbar or simply going camping, take note of our favourite spots to rest your head:


Goomalling Caravan Park

Throssell Street, Goomalling 6460

Goomalling is a small agricultural town located 140km north east of Perth. It sits in the Avon Valley, about a 30 minute drive from Northam, Toodyay and Dowerin. The Goomalling Caravan Park is just a short walk to the main shopping precinct.

Caravan Park sites range from $10 – $20, with powered and unpowered sites available.


Coogee Beach Holiday Park

3 Powell Road, Coogee 6166

To truly experience the best of what Perth has to offer, you can’t go past the Coogee Beach Holiday Park. Located just a five minute drive from the historical and cultural hub of Fremantle, you can also enjoy safe swimming holes, beach walks, fishing from the Coogee Jetty, or take the ferry to Rottnest Island.

Caravan Park sites range from $38 – $ 52, with easy access to power and water.


Big4 Ledge Point Holiday Park

Ledge Point Road, Ledge Point 6043

This quaint caravan park is situated on the coast an hour and half from Perth, in the small crayfishing village of Ledge Point. Perfect for forgetting the city with friends or family, Ledge Point won’t let you down when it comes to things to do.

Sites start at $31 per night.


Mandurah Caravan & Tourist Park

522 Pinjarra Road, Mandura 6210

Enjoy crabbing, canoeing, dolphin tours and much more in Mandurah, Western Australia’s second-largest city. The Mandurah region has many beautiful waterways to go fishing and crabbing in, and you can use the camp kitchen at the caravan park to cook them up afterward!

Tent and caravan sites range from $32 – $54 and are available with an en suite and power.


Back to Nature Caravan Park

Cowalla Road, Wanerie, Gingin 6503

Located just over an hour’s drive from the metropolitan region, Back to Nature Caravan Park can be found in West Gingin, in a sprawling 200 acres of native bushland. It’s the ideal location for bushwalking or enjoying the wildflowers, or you can drive half an hour in any direction (well, not literally any direction) and end up in Gingin, Lancelin (famous for its sand dunes), Guilderton, Seabird and Ledge Point.

Caravan and camping sites range from $15 – $30, unpowered and powered available. Single person, group and weekly rates are available.
