In some areas when doing the great Aussie road trip from Perth to Darwin, you will find there are a number of caravan parks and maybe even some freedom camping options. If you are unsure what freedom camping is, that is when you can park in designated areas, off power. It is not possible to park up ‘anywhere’ on this route though, as some local councils do not allow. Please note any local signs which will help you work out if you can stay in an area or not.
Other locations, such as around Carol Bay which is where you can access the coral fringing Ningaloo Reef, you’ll need to stay in a caravan park if you want to say amongst the action, as there is no freedom camping nearby. It is great in locations such as this to book ahead, especially if you’d like a powered site, so you don’t miss out.
