Accomodation is available alongside many of our venues for overnight camps for both school and family groups. Make your excursion extra memorable for your students by including an experience of the forest at night.

Apart from the Perth Hills Discovery Centre, these camps are not part of Nearer to Nature and need to be booked separately.

The Perth Hills Discovery Centre, operated by Nearer to Nature, is located only 40 minutes drive from Perth on Allen Road and 6km from Mundaring. The camp ground is a wonderful place to get away from it all without having to travel too far, perfect for a quick weekend away.

Set within the Beelu National Park, the ground is nestled amongst the forest and offers glimpses C Y O’Connor Lake and Mundaring Weir.  Walk and cycle trails in the immediate area offer some great recreational opportunities and the high standard of facilities (hot showers and a great camp kitchen) provide a camping experience that everyone can enjoy.

During the months December to April you can even catch a movie at the Kookaburra Open Air Cinema next door (Fri, Sat & Sun).

The Wellington Forest Cottages and Conference Centre is situated within walking distance of the Wellington Discovery Forest Centre and provides an ideal camp location for school studies related to nature conservation.
