|Bush Bay and New Beach is 4 kilometers from each
other. This spot is 36 kilometers from Carnarvon. Bush bay has toilets
and is very popular with caravans and tourists. These days the ranger
collects $7 from campers. I presume its per day or each time he visits.
It is also a popular fishing spot, but don't expect to actually catch
anything. Bities are ripe there with all the Mangoes and huge ugly
looking spiders live in the mangroves.
The doggies loved it there and if you lucky you can get a
reasonably private spot. We spent a week there. did not catch anything
but it was interesting to watch every one try. There was one time a
female fishing with 6 males and the only one catching anything was her.
They eventually pushed her all the way up to where I was, a distance of
500 meters and still she was the only one to catch anything. Poor blokes
lol. To get to any deep water is a walk. Not ideal to swim
My favorite spot is New beach where it is more private and as a
river ends there you do catch Brim. The dogs and I also enjoyed swimming
there as there is a nice deep section even with the tide out. There is
also a kind of Island just off the shore which you can walk to and
wildlife visit there on dusk and early morning. Shez once stepped on
something and limped after for a few hours. I believe there are stone
fish but I never saw anything except for fish which swim between your
legs and nibble your toes. Strangely there are no spiders here and very
Rocky Pool is ideal to just relax and camp at. the toilet is
relatively new. Wildlife visit there and there is always water which is
warm and the sand very hot in summer. The dogs loved the swimming. the
water is deep in some places. Shez vanished there one time. Don't know
what she saw but off she went and returned 10 minutes later and then got
into trouble for taking off.
The blow holes area has its own camping spot. Not very private but
not bad. there are some toilets. Cost is or was $2 per day using a
honesty box. Swimming in this area is dangerous. Fishing here is very
good but care must be taken if on the rocks.
