Wharncliffe Mill, Wooditjup National Park, South West
Wharncliffe Mill is nestled amidst the tall timber of the Wooditjup National Park in the heart of Margaret River. It offers shady well-spaced powered campsites and caravan sites amongst the trees, spacious cabins, a large four room eco-lodge, dorm rooms and basic safari tents. It is not a traditional caravan park, though it offers all of the necessary comforts of hot showers, flushing toilets and a camp kitchen. The lodge and cabins have their own bathrooms and kitchens and there is also a huge undercover area with barbeques, picnic tables, table tennis and an adjacent campfire pit for relaxing and gatherings.
