This section covers our trips in the South
of Western Australia.
The south is very green and consists
mostly of National Parks. These are places that are designed for tourists and
are mostly pay to enter and pay to stay. Some places have honesty boxes but
these are few. It is fairly well populated in the south and there is a steady
stream of traffic just about every where so help is usually on hand should you
need it. These pictures are taken before all the places got classed as national
parks and the NO CAMPING rules came along. Pets are not allowed in National
parks in Australia. The reason given to me by a Ranger was, and I Quote "
Dogs wee against a tree and that chases the wild life off " Well that is a
first to me lol. Of course in reality you would never really see wild life as we
have very few aside from birds, foxes, dingoes, kangaroos, rabbits. Wonder what
the real reason is.
Free camping here is now well extinct.
There are trails you can walk for days and here you can still camp out. Car and
4WD routes are pay to stay unless you use a overnight rest spot or parking area.
Books are available from the RAC in
Perth which covers these areas. The free camping books are outdated by the time
its printed as the legal freebie spots are gone here.
