Veterans Retreats Meentheena

Private Campground - Western Australia


Meentheena Veterans Retreat is dedicated to those who have served in the Australian military forces, as well as para-military veterans who have served in peace-keeping roles, police, fire and rescue, ambulance officers and state emergency service volunteers.

Situated in the heart of the Pilbara in Western Australia, Meentheena has so many things to offer for those who have an appreciation for wide open spaces, rugged and colourful landscapes, pristine billabongs, beautiful flora and fauna, stunning sunsets and the kind of silence that can only be found in the outback.


Main camp has 24 hour solar/battery/generator power, potable drinking water, showers and toilet facilities.  Shade for caravans/campers or tents.  Large areas to move or camp out of the way and avoid everyone (if that's what you want).  If not feeling well and need some air conditioned comfort, settle down in an ensuite donga.  If you need to work on your car or caravan, you can park in the open work shed and do your work.  There is a Camp Kitchen/ Club House with wash-up and cooking facilities with refrigeration available. Phones and small appliances can be recharged in the Club House.

Excellent camp sites are available on the banks of the Nullagine River (4 wheel drive access) and will be allocated by the Camp Host. There are no facilities at these sites and what you bring in with you must be taken out on exiting the property. Small contained fires are allowed, however the site itself is to be left in pristine condition upon your departure.


Toilet waste and rubbish needs to be removed from Meentheena.  There is a disposal point at Marble Bar. 

There are no rubbish facilities at the camp and as such all rubbish is to be disposed of appropriately off site.

If you are a veteran of any sort either military, police, fireman or ambo then this is a lovely quiet peacefull place to just rest up for a few days/weeks. we managed to camp by the river in our motorhome. These sites are easly accessable with a two wheel drive. If you want to explore the other attractions like pelecan ponds then you need 4 wheel drive. Pets and generators as well as kids are allowed.
Unpowered site per vehicle per night (2 adults)
