Best Place To Camp In Kalbarri, Western Australia

Murchison House Station

It’s great to be able to support locals by staying at a station, rather than the chain caravan parks. Murchison House Station is a 350,000 acre working station, where every year they muster up to 5000 goats. It’s lovely to see lots of really cute goats running around, there’s also some old military and machinery stuff for the kids to explore (and the bigger kids LOL😆). Our next door neighbours were Llamas but there’s no way Gary was getting close after last time (he got spat at O’Reilleys on the GoldCoast).

We got a spot along the river but you can arrange to go further into the station (out bush) but we wanted to be here so we can easily go off and explore Kalbarri. One nice thing is there’s a communal fire pit area but you also get individual ones by your camp. There’s also toilets and hot showers, $30 per night to camp along the river, different fees apply to the bush camping (it was $50 per vehicle entry plus $15 per night). PLEASE NOTE they are open from 1st April to 31st October, bookings essential.

Did you know? - Murchison House Station is one of the oldest pastoral stations in Western Australia.

Features in our video, as well as some of the AMAZING Kalbarri National Park.

Natures Window In Kalbarri National Park

Natures Window in Kalbarri National Park is an iconic spot to visit, there’s photos all over Facebook and Instagram but did you know there’s a really great 9 km hike that is really stunning.

The 9km loop took us right down into the gorge and along the river. There was also a challenging section crawling to get through, being careful not to fall in to the river.
