When Tagalong23 trip ends, on the 28th September 2023, several members of the group are continuing on toward Western Australia. There are currently at least 5 caravans booked into the Big4 Ceduna Tourist Park for 3 nights. The following (very loose) itinerary has been put together by Neil & Merrisa and Tim & Anne.

As already mentioned, the “very loose” only had one requirement and that was to book into Lucky Bay Campground in the Cape Le Grand National Park in WA. Voted the best beach in Australia, it is one of the most scenic beaches you will probably you’ll ever come across. The only bookings we’ve have made are Big4 Ceduna & Lucky Bay Campground (fills up very fast – see dates below).


This part of the trip is not organised by the Tagalong Team. If you wish to come along then you will need to make your own bookings, using the info provided below.

Here’s our very loose plan! It’s all up to you 👌 but this is only what Neil & Merrisa are thinking…

Some WikiCamps reviews…

  • We had a superb day to camp, very little wind and glorious views. The only negative is some people have used it as a toilet and there are bits of toilet paper scattered everywhere: disappointing, easy enough to put used paper in a bag and dispose of later
  • Great place to camp. Can nestle into the dunes to reduce the wind factor. Absolutely heaps of room. People were camped so close to the cliffs – we put our drone out and the cliffs were all undercut away and an area had recently collapsed. Be careful but otherwise enjoy the extra ordinary views!
  • Great view. We parked further back in the sand dunes because we are travelling with a dog, glad we did as it was windy and the dunes gave protection

  • Wow, what a beautiful place to spend the night and to wake up in the morning to most gorgeous sunrise. Clean and plenty of room to your own. View across the plains amazing. Don’t pull into the first site go up further you won’t be disappointed. One of our favourite spots to stay
  • Good spot. Bit rough going in. Plenty of campers for the night. As posted previously the entrance is at the Lookout sign post. There are double lines to cross if heading west. We went into the truck parking bay nearly opposite and did a u turn. Road noise not noticeable to us
  • Here tonight. Terrific spot. Unfortunately there are a lot of grubs use the site as well. General junk and dunny paper as well. The rubbish man came to empty the bins and they weren’t full

  • Wow what a lovely area to camp & see the white sands & turquoise waters with wildlife on beach & at camps .cleanest amenities with solar hot water showers 🚿 camp hosts are very friendly & helpful. Great sunrises 🌅 must book online before getting out here as there is little service to do so. Enjoyed our time here
  • Even if gates at camp sites say they are full or information centre say full, get on line. I managed to book and every night we were there was still sites available. Must pre-book before arrival. We were there for 5 nights and wish we had time to stay longer. Drive in great, walks and other points of interest were wonderful, camp hosts were friendly and local wildlife very friendly wondering through the sites
  • What a spot!!!! Apart from being the best beach in the world recently voted, this campsite has it all. Large sites, mostly private if you get the ones down the bottom near the beach, and well protected from the wind of it’s blowing a gale. Camp hosts were amazing and always up for giving some insider tips of the area. Amenities in pristine condition with solar showers on the sunny days

PLEASE NOTE: The following locations are we “expect” to be staying. No bookings have been made, length of stays not worked out etc. They have been listed as a possible location only!

#6 – Bremer Bay

Bremer Bay is a quiet little village on the southern edge of the Fitzgerald River National Park.  It is essentially a sleepy holiday resort and angler’s retreat. Its peerless location on some of the most beautiful coastline in Australia, and its isolation from the more developed seaside resorts, has made it one of those places which people speak about in whispers hoping that the hordes never get to find out about the attractions – fishing, swimming, surfing, whale watching, bushwalking and a genuine peacefulness (read more on the Aussie Towns website).

  • Great park, with large grassy sites. Everything is well maintained
  • Top spot to stay. Lady at Reception was very friendly and informative. Large grassed site. Amenities are spotless. Close to inlet & beach. $72.00 for 2 nights for seniors for power & water
  • Nice tidy park. Clean amenities. Over the road from the Bremer Inlet and bush walk

#7 – Denmark

Denmark is a small, pleasant town in timber country to the north of the Great Southern Ocean. The town’s appeal and major attractions lie to the west where Greens Pool natural rock swimming pool in William Bay National Park is arguably the most beautiful beach in Australia. In recent years Denmark has become an increasingly popular holiday destination as its excellent fishing, tasteful and low-key development, and the rich diversity of its landscape (rugged coastline and beautiful beaches to the south, tall timber country in the hinterland) have made it an attractive alternative to Western Australia’s highly developed south-west coast holiday towns (read more on the Aussie Towns website).

  • A really nice park to stay in. Very clean and fresh centre amenities. A fantastic communal kitchen and eating area for multiple groups without getting in one another’s way. Very friendly staff. Beautiful views from the back area of the park. Highly recommend. Off peak rate $45/night which was very reasonable. Power and water for that rate as well
  • Just spent 10 days there, great park & location, staff friendly, 3 toilet blocks all clean. 2 great camp kitchens. Hire canoes & sup board. Café was great. Will definitely stay again
  • Big flat sites. Some need a mow. Facilities are immaculate. Staff are very pleasant. Cafe at entrance to park and a beautiful walk into town (1.5 km)

A Tip from the Touring Wombats (Neil & Merrisa) – This is a great central location to explore the Albany & Walpole areas – we recommend at least a 4 night stay.

#8 – Margaret River

Margaret River is both a town and a region. As a region it is a hugely successful wine growing district with over 80 vineyards, many of which have impressive cellar doors. At a town it is a typical wine growing region service centre with an emphasis on cafes, boutique shops and a sense of chic-ness. It has an impressive Farmers Market and an excess of upmarket restaurants. It lies close to superb beaches and impressive limestone caves. The district’s magnet is its vineyards which produce some of the best wines in the country (read more on the Aussie Towns website).

Staying at:Big Valley Campsite
From the owners:Big Valley Campsite is nestled amongst the hills of our family owned working sheep farm, ten minutes South East of Margaret River. The farm encompasses a beautiful secret valley hidden from the outside world by natural forest.
We are central to the Margaret River region and its tourist attractions. Margaret River has plenty of wineries, breweries and restaurants to choose from. It also has arts and crafts, mountain biking, bush walking, caving, canoeing and abseiling to offer both visitors and locals a great variety of things to do.
Plus there are many brewery and wine tours that will pick up and drop off from our campsite. Big Valley offers powered and unpowered sites. Pets are welcome all year, and we also have a high fenced fully enclosed exercise area for your dogs to play. Cats are welcomed as well.
