Western Australia


Camping in Western Australia, as with all other states and territories in Australia, is permitted for 24 hours. Some camping areas, while free, will require a permit or at least permission from local authorities and may have time limits attached. Conduct your research before you arrive so that you can abide by the requirements and don't run the risk of incurring a financial penalty.

In Western Australia, while the day time temperatures are quite high they can drop dramatically once the sun goes down so warm clothing is a must. Be mindful of the local wildlife, particularly snakes and little critters like centipedes that love to curl up in sleeping bags and shoes. Get into the Western Australian habit of keeping tents zipped, sleeping bags rolled up until bedtime and shaking out shoes before putting them on.

The following tips are handy for camping in Western Australia:

  • Abide by all signage especially those to do with camping, wildlife, fire lighting and swimming;
  • Take everything with you that you require such as water and firewood and be prepared to take all rubbish away with you in case there are no bins provided;
  • Respect all road rules, particularly when parking to camp, and don't camp on private property unless you have the owners' consent.
