Just in time for the wildflower season, two new campgrounds have opened north of Perth.

Maybe your taking a road trip to the check out the new Kalbarri Skywalk, or maybe you’re on your way home from exploring the stunning Ningaloo Coast or maybe you just want a night out under the stars away from the city! Well, here are two new campgrounds where you can stop in for a night or two or three….

Right next to Lesueur National Park, Karda campground has 31 campsites suitable for all camping equipment. The roads to the campground are unsealed but suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles.

It is the perfect spot to take in the clear night skies for some star gazing or to explore Lesueur National Park and see the incredible variety of wildflowers. The campsites have picnic tables and fire rings (used in the permitted season only) available. One area of the campground allows generators and the other is a quiet area, so book your campsite carefully.

Do you have a four-wheel drive, a tent and want to wake up the sounds of the ocean?

Then Wanagarren Nature Reserve has the campground for you!

Wanagarren campground is right next to Jurien Bay Marine Park. It is so close that you’ll hear waves lapping the shore from your sleeping bag.

The new campsites are only suitable for campers who are completely self-sufficient and have a high-clearance 4WD with low-range gears. You’ll also need to reduce your tyre pressure and be able to reinflate them on exit.

There are no facilities available so to camp here you must have a portable chemical toilet. Rangers patrol the area and if you do not have one, you will have to leave and buy one.

Campsites vary in surface and size so be sure to check out the campsites before booking online.
