  • Regional travel ban and camping in national parks and reserves

    Please be advised of the information from Parks and Wildlife Service, Western Australia regarding the closure of campsites, campgrounds, national parks and attractions. The advice for all campers and visitors is to make their way home.

    As a result of regional travel bans being introduced by the State Government from 12am Wednesday 1 April, online campground bookings for Parks and Wildlife Service sites have been suspended until further notice.

    Any existing bookings with a start date up to and including 31 May 2020 will be cancelled and people will be contacted directly to arrange a full refund.

    People currently camping are advised to make arrangements to return home as soon as possible, with the exception of those with no fixed address, backpackers/travellers, or those unable to find alternative accommodation. Given the situation is evolving and travel restrictions may be further tightened, any camper remaining in situ should consider their ability to be self-sustaining for an extended period of time.

    National parks remain open at this time, however some high visitation sites within parks have been closed.
