Online bookings for all campgrounds at Cape Range National Park

Securing a camp site at popular Cape Range National Park has never been easier, with the introduction of online bookings for all of the park’s major campgrounds from 23 March 2016.

Department of Parks and Wildlife Exmouth district manager Arvid Hogstrom said camp site bookings would be essential between March and November each year.

“In the past we operated on a first come, first served basis, but camping in this beautiful part of the Ningaloo World Heritage Area has become so popular that we have extended the booking system to all of Cape Range’s major campgrounds,” Mr Hogstrom said.

“This means that from 23 March, campers will need to reserve their spot in advance, via the department’s online booking system Parkstay WA.

“This arrangement will be beneficial to visitors, who can avoid disappointment and pre-book their camp site up to six months in advance.”

The bookings apply to camp sites at:

  • Osprey Bay
  • Yardie Creek
  • North Kurrajong
  • Kurrajong
  • Ned’s Camp
  • Mesa
  • Tulki
  • North Mandu

The Osprey Bay campground last year received a $1.25 million upgrade, funded by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions Parks for People Caravan and Camping initiative, which included construction of extra camp sites, toilets, shade shelters, picnic tables, sunset viewing platforms and a walk trail to Sandy Bay.
