The Wheatbelt Way welcomes people from the region to its campgrounds in line with State Government advice of non-contact recreational activities such as private picnics in the park, fishing, boating, hiking, and camping − all in compliance with travel restrictions and the 10-person rule and social distancing rules observed. From Monday 18th May we welcome visitors from the Perth, Peel, South West, and Great Southern Regions to the Wheatbelt. More information on Regional Travel Restrictions and the latest advice can be found here.
The Wheatbelt Way offers an abundance of free locations at which to set up camp. A comprehensive list of sites has been provided below. We ask that you ‘tread lightly’ in the bush and “don’t love these areas to death” so that we can minimize damage to the campsites and the surrounding environment and reduce the need for area closures or access restrictions. We ask that all visitors by mindful suggest the following when camping out in the Wheatbelt Way.
- Camp only in designated sites
- Use established sites rather than creating new ones.
- Camp in small groups as fewer feet has less impact on campsites. If possible, disperse larger groups into smaller nodes rather than using a single large camp.
- Be aware of the total fire ban days. Check before leaving with the Local Government Authorities or Visitor Information Centres if you are unsure, it is your responsibility to know.
- Take all rubbish with you or place it in bins if provided. If you carry it in – carry it out! Bring plenty of rubbish bags for the purpose.
- Use toilets where provided.
- Be considerate of others sharing your camp – radios, CD players, mobile phones, motorbikes, and generators can be out of place in the natural environment.
- Leave your camp cleaner than when you arrived.
- Respect the rights of landowners. Don’t enter private property without permission.
