New campsites on the Turquoise Coast

New campgrounds in the heart of wildflower country along WA’s stunningly beautiful Turquoise Coast are now available for booking.

Managed by the Parks and Wildlife Service at the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, the new facilities will help meet the growing demand for nature-based tourism in the region.

Karda Campground is located 20km east of Jurien Bay adjacent to Lesueur National Park and includes 31 campsites suitable for all types of camping accommodation. Each campsite has a picnic table and firepit, and there is a toilet at each of the two camping areas.

Wanagarren Campground is situated alongside the pristine waters of Jurien Bay Marine Park between Wedge and Grey reserves. There are 15 campsites for standard, rooftop and awning tents and it is suitable for campers who are completely self-sufficient.

A new 27 km walk trail under construction in Lesueur National Park will be completed later this year. The trail will take hikers through hills, valleys and woodlands.

It will have a new walk-in campsite (Yonga) approximately mid-way.

The aim is to add a new dimension to the region’s tourism experience by highlighting and drawing connections between geology and landscapes, ecology, astronomical observations and their relevance to local Aboriginal culture.
