D‘Entrecasteaux National Park boasts some of the best coastline in the world and the beach at Banksia Camp is no exception. Its pristine waters and bright white sand are impressive. Fishing off the rocks at Banksia camp can be very rewarding, but remember that rock fishing can be dangerous. The track to the camp takes you through coastal heathland, which comes alive with colour in the wildflower season. The current Banksia Hut replaced the old hut that was erected back in 1965. The Banksia Hut is a roomy shelter containing four bedrooms and a common area that is designed to accommodate 12 people comfortably. The hut cannot be pre-booked or reserved so visitors are advised to carry a tent in case it is occupied on arrival. Rainwater is provided at the hut for all visitors. Please use this resource sparingly as it is limited. The purity of water cannot be guaranteed; therefore it should be treated before drinking. Please note that this facility is provided for all visitors so treat it as a shared resource. Camping fees apply.
Campfires are usually permitted, in the provided fire rings only, between April 15 and November 30 but fire restrictions may be imposed at any time and without notice. Bring your own firewood. When fire restrictions are in place campfires must not be lit and any appliance powered by burning solid fuel must not be used. Always comply with any instructions at campgrounds and parks.
Campers´ own liquid or gas fuel barbeques, stoves and heaters can be used at any time, unless a total fire ban has been declared (see Department of Fire and Emergency Services).
Banksia Camp is approximately 30 minutes from Walpole. Access to Banksia Camp is four-wheel drive only. Be sure to reduce your tyre pressure when driving on sand.
