Gascoyne River South Branch Camping Area

Free Camping - Western Australia


This free camping area has a billabong and abandoned mine  to check out.  It has no facilities.

Excellent rest stop. Clean drop toilets, dump point, several covered picnic tables. Lots of room to park - near the front on good level bitumen and at the rear on level gravel. Seven rigs by 6pm tonight and a happy hour was underway as well.

Clean tidy toilets an plenty of room. Bins were full today. We parked our van down by the river and were entertained by the many cows frequenting the area. Be careful on the roads near here as the cows like to stand in the road. We heard some traffic noise and plenty of birds the cows are a little vocal too by the river. Overall, enjoyed our stay.

This is a MRD 24 hour stop over but has room to move to the rear in cleared scrub land near the trickle of the Gascoyne River. Good facilities and a convenient overnight stop. It has been renovated by the MRD.

Large official 24 hour rest area off the Great Northern Highway with parking near the facilities and along the river off a dirt track. Limited facilities. Very large area with dirt/gravel base that extends a good distance off the Great Northern Highway to the mostly dry Gascoyne River. Facilities include drop toilets, bins, covered seating, dump point and fire pits. Excellent Telstra reception but no Optus of TV. A good overnight stay for self-contained vehicles. The road noise is tolerable at the back of the parking area near the river.
