Indian Ocean Drive 2 1/2 hrs North of Perth, Camping in remote areas. 3 days.
November 20 at 8:00 am - November 22 at 5:00 pm
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.
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.
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?
1st night Tuart Reserve, Cervantes Rd ( this may change as I continually discover more Great Locations)
2nd night Our Secret Spot near Cliffs Head. Exploring the Indian Ocean Drive is a lot of fun.
