Western Australia has some of the best low fuss, fun-filled, sun-soaked camp spots in the country, and this one is an absolute doozy. We’d definitely recommend penciling in a few days for it… or a few weeks. Your choice really...
The main calling card for the area and a spectacular show of nature.
Just a short walk round the point, the Blowholes are created when powerful ocean swells force water up through sea caves, before erupting in great jets out of narrow holes in the rocks - sometimes to a height of 20 metres.
It is eye-popping and jaw-dropping in all the best ways imaginable.
A word of caution: This rugged, fierce coastline is truly incredible, but not to be underestimated. Be sure to be watch the waves and take care not to stray too close to the crashing waves, particularly at high tide. Safety first guys!
For calmer, safe-to-swim waters, look no further than the beautiful lagoon just to the north of the campground, known to locals as “The Aquarium”.
An idyllic white-sanded beach teaming with fish, its the perfect place to string up a hammock, or grap the fins and mask and go for a snorkel.
Point Quobba Lighthouse
If sunrises and sunsets are your thing, the nearby Point Quobba Lighthouse is the spot to be. Accessible either by 4WD track or by foot.
Beachside camping at its very best. During peak season a spot here will set you back $11pp a night, which is pretty reasonable considering you can literally open your doors out to the waves.
Toilets are located towards the lagoon end of the road, as are bins and a dump point. Be sure to bring your water in with you as there isn’t any available onsite. Fires are also permitted outside of fire danger season.
Off season, camping at Point Quobba is absolutely FREE.
Point Quobba is located an easy 50 minute drive along sealed roads from the township of Carnarvon, so stocking up on groceries and water before your visit is all too easy.
