If you’re planning a road trip from Perth to Exmouth, here’s our guide to the best campsites in the area.
Perth – Capital of WA
As the largest city in Western Australia, Perth is rich in history, culture and boasts stunning nature. From its flourishing bar scene and world-class beaches, you won’t be short for things to do. Aspen Perth Vineyards Holiday Park, nestled in the Swan Valley region, is just fourteen kilometres from the centre of Perth. With Internet kiosks and a swimming pool set in a quiet and relaxing environment, the park serves as a great base for exploring the Swan Valley or central Perth.
Geraldton – Abrolhos Islands, Water Sports & Rolling Hills
The next clear stop is Geraldton, a stunning coastal city almost five hours from Perth, where visitors are invited to fish, swim, snorkel or simply unwind on its golden beaches. Sunset Beach Holiday Park is a popular venue for campervan and motorhome owners. Set up camp in its beachfront location and immerse yourself in marine life. Just 400 metres from the local shopping centre and six kilometres from the centre of Geraldton, you get the best of both worlds here.
Carnarvon – Bananas, Seafood & The Gascoyne River
Carnarvon is your next stop, situated at the mouth of the Gascoyne River. Illustrious for its banana plantations, high quality seafood and tropical weather, this is the gateway to the Ningaloo coast, so keep your eyes peeled for whale sharks! The Plantation Caravan Park is located in the heart of Carnarvon and has a range of powered sites for caravans, campervans and motorhomes. Guests have full access to the below-ground swimming pool and BBQ equipment during their stay.
Exmouth – Gateway To The Ningaloo Reef
Fortunate enough to be warm all year round with some of the best snorkeling opportunities in the country, Exmouth is a holidaymaker’s idea of paradise. With Exmouth Cape Holiday Park, you have an ideal sanctuary to unwind after an eventful day of sightseeing. Located near Ningaloo Marina Park, Yardie Creek Gorge and with a games room and a swimming pool on the premises, you have multiple activities at your fingertips within the park and beyond!
