Toolibut Bush Camp

17 sites · RVs, Tents68 acres · Bremer Bay, WA
Toolibut Bush Camp is a secluded, tranquil 68 acre bush block set back one kilometre from Borden-Bremer Bay Road, 32 kilometres from Bremer Bay, Western Australia. You can choose either a secluded area to camp where you can surround yourself with natural bush, Yates, and Toolibut trees or a more wide open space where two or three caravans traveling together can park with plenty of room. There are walk trails to explore that meander through the bush, wetlands and paperbark thickets. Keep a lookout for kangaroos and bird life. For the 4x4 enthusiast, the 9 km track to Reef Beach is a challenge that will reward you with beach fishing and sand dunes to explore. If you prefer, you can set up camp near the camp kitchen. This area is ideal for group bookings as well as individuals. The camp kitchen is basic with a BBQ, bar, fridge and a sink with running untreated rain water. A clean pit toilet is also provided. It is recommended that you are self-contained as the camp kitchen has no water or power outlets, (hookups) for caravans or RV's. No generators please. Campfire in the communal firepit area is welcome except during a fire ban. Firewood and kindling are provided for your convenience. While sitting around the fire, you can see the stars and listen to the night sounds. Don't forget the marshmallows. We are a dog friendly camp-site but please keep your pets on a leash. If you wish to take your dog off the lead for a run, there is a designated off leash area in the top paddock. You may even see our family of kangaroos on your walk. Toolibut is an ideal place to park up and explore the surrounding area. Bremer Bay has excellent beaches, whale tours and the world renowned Fitzgerald River National Park with its unique wildflowers and viewing platforms for whale watching.

The best camping near Fitzgerland River National Park guide

Overview

About

On the southern coast of Western Australia, 470 kilometres from Perth, Fitzgerald River National Park is a seriously biodiverse place. The rocky coastal landscape contains many plant species, 75 of which can’t be found anywhere else. Hiking the park is one of the best ways of experiencing the flora and fauna, but you can also swim, snorkel, kayak, surf, fish, and—of course—camp at three basic campsites. It’s a quiet national park that doesn’t see too many visitors, which makes it all the more special, and is a good place to stop on road trips through southern Western Australia or when en route to South Australia via the Great Australian Bight.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for families: Four Mile Campground is the largest in the park.
  • Best for whale-watching: St Mary Inlet Campground is the place to spot southern right whales in winter.
  • Best for hikers: Hamersley Inlet Campground is the ideal base for walkers.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Bookings for the Four Mile and Hamersley Inlet campgrounds can be made online. Booking early is advisable if travelling at the most popular times, especially midsummer. The Four Mile Campground is within the national park boundaries while the Hamersley Inlet Campground is not.
  2. St Mary Inlet Campground operates on a first-come, first-served basis. However, it can get busy on weekends and during school holidays, so come early or be prepared to stay elsewhere.
  3. Although the St Mary Inlet Campground can’t be booked in advance, fees still apply upon arrival.

When to go

Spring and summer are the best times to visit the Fitzgerald River National Park. The weather is generally warm in spring without being too hot, and you probably won’t encounter many other visitors. The park is especially busy during the Australian school summer holidays, but this is a good time to visit if you want to spend time on the beach and in the sea.

Know before you go

  • Don’t forget to bring a pair of binoculars for whale spotting or bird watching—some 200 bird species live in the park.
  • Many cliffs that are at risk from erosion. Stay well away from cliff edges at all times.
  • Hikers will find many options in this park, from the easy, 200-metre walk to the Mount Maxwell Lookout to the 31-kilometre Mamang Trail.
  • Four-wheel-drive (4WD) tracks in the park may be closed at short notice during bad weather. Unsealed park roads are not suitable for caravans, large buses, or motorhomes.
