Blowholes - Point Quobba

Private Campground - Western Australia


This is a magic camping spot located right on the beach, just south of the Blowholes. Campers are advised that the maximum length of stay for overnight campers/caravans at the Blowholes and Gladstone Campgrounds is thirty (30) days in any calendar year; this regulation to be incorporated in the pending management plans for these areas. You must take all your drinking water, food supplies and fuel and MUST have a chemical toilet.

Located just 75km north of Carnarvon along a bitumen road, this natural phenomenon is awe inspiring sight to see. Powerful ocean swells force water through sea caves and up out of narrow holes in the rocks, jets of water erupt into the air, sometimes to a height of 20 metres, creating a Spectacular sight. Just 1km south of the Blowholes is Point  Quobba, a calm coral filled lagoon with fish and shells in abundance. With a white sandy beach this area is ideal for snorkelling, safe swimming, sun bathing and a great family picnic spot much favoured by locals. This is also a camping area with an overnight fee to be paid to the site ranger.

Although the coast is serene it can be deadly, with a dangerous swell that can turn into king waves, capable of crashing over the top of the rock ledge. This coastline needs to be treated with caution and care -lives have been lost by unsuspecting souls here.

Very clean toilets. Lovely beach. There is a very long area in which you can camp. Some are alongside the road other campsites tucked away.

Great spot to view blowholes n whales n swim n feed fish sites very basic and if I remember cost $10pn
